Brewers close to making a trade, per Crasnick.
They've been talking to the White Sox, per Jerry?
Nate Jones? Soria?
More as needed.

The Rambling wife insists she's going to therapy and work...I may have to put my foot down. We have the Joel Osteen arrangement...she makes all the small decisions, I make all the big ones.
Still waiting for the first "big one" to need to be made...but we've only been married 20 years, so...

Thus far in the playoffs, I'm 6-2, which is tied for 2nd place out of 94 tracked at NFL Pickwatch.
I got the Vikings and the Patriots this week.
By the way, those of you that took the Saints last week, I don't know what you were thinking.:)

Giannis to miss next 2 games, part of long term plan to keep him as healthy as possible.
It sounds almost identical to what the Brewers have done with Braun. Given that Giannis is 22 and his knee issue has no name, it seems strange, but I assume they know exactly what they're doing.

We've learned no one denies Haiti is a dump, some folks are just bothered by the fact he said it out loud.
After 8 years of a community organizer informing us "we might need some revenue enhancement" when it came time to take more money from the rubes, those offended by plain talk and the truth have probably ruined their pearls from clutching them so often.

More proof I may be the only middle aged white guy not taking uppers, blow, or painkillers.
25 years ago or so, the PA gave me Tylenol with codeine for a painful tonsil infection. I barely knew who I was, and had to go tell my boss at Toys R Us I was in no condition to work.
Since then, I've been given 4 scrips for painkillers, and I've never filled any of them. My goodness, Nyquil makes me loopy. I guess the appeal is lost on me.

If the Dems are watching social media, people are furious about the military not getting paid, and completely apathetic about the rest of the government shutdown.
The government might shut down Friday...just like it does every weekend.
I do wonder why the military was included...if it's a strategy, it seems shortsighted. If it's because they know the military votes 80% Republican; it seems very shortsighted.

Top 20 prospects. ("seasonal" age as of July 1, 2018)
1. Lewis Brinson, 24, CF
--Best by far. Mike Cameron is a good comp.
2. Keston Hiura, 22, 2B
--Al he does is hit. Potential to be an all star if he can stay at 2B, solid player at 1B or LF.
3. Corbin Burnes, 23, SP
--Can't ignore video game like numbers last year. Just toyed with A+/AA hitters.
4. Brandon Woodruff, 25, SP
--Solid debut last year, was almost as good as Burnes in '16.
5. Brett Phillips, 24, CF
--Many gave up on him after a poor '16. Still plenty young.
6. Corey Ray, 23, CF
--His floor is so high, tough to put him lower than this.
7. Luis Ortiz, 22, SP
--Very young, so even though he had a pedestrian year in AA, very solid.
8. Isan Diaz, 22, 2B/SS
--Has a good eye and pop for a middle infielder.
9. Mauricio Dubon, 23, 2B/SS
--Very athletic and getting better every year.
10. Freddy Peralta, 22, P
--Set to explode, excellent velocity, misses bats.
11. Adrian Houser, 24, SP
--Many have forgotten about him. I have not. Still a true prospect.
12. Monte Harrison, 22, CF
--Arrived on the scene after a struggle, fantastic athlete, will have ups and downs.
13. Jacob Nottingham, 23, C
--Overlooked, catchers always develop slowly. Plenty of time.
14. Taylor Williams, 26, RP
--Ceiling probably a reliever now, but he will be good if healthy.
15. Trent Grisham (formerly Trent Clark), 21, CF
--Fine athlete, walks a lot.
16. Lucas Erceg, 23, 3B
--I think he's a bit overrated, but lefty bat with huge power.
17. Troy Stokes, 22, OF
--Overlooked due to lack of stature (5-8), but has good speed and power. Outperformed Ray and Grisham in '16.
18. Aaron Wilkerson, 29, SP
--Tough to put a fella almost 30 on the list. Never gonna going to be a star, but he gets guys out.
19. Tristen Lutz, 19, OF
--Very young, but raw power off the charts.
20. KJ Harrison, 21, C/1B
--Doubt if he sticks as a C, might end up as a utility guy solely due to bat.

Of course, the dude was here for decades and never did a thing as far as starting the path to citizenship, and supposedly used a fictional social security number all these years.

Many wondering as I am...what is in this memo that could be more damaging than what we know?
Only guess I have? Some never Trump folks were involved in payment or making up info, as it has been shown to be, at best, factually inaccurate.
McCain bringing a copy in was strange at best, though meaningless, as others had been seen before. Could that be part of it?
