My season long insistence that Matthew Dellavedova was a wonderful addition and a gritty, tough defender finally paid off. If everyone played as tough as Delly, and made the most of their athletic ability.
Nice season and it will interesting to see how many return next year, when the Bucks will not sneak up on anybody.

I'm confident enough in my manhood to admit, if the person who discovered menthol had a medicinal benefit were to walk into my home right now, I'd kiss them on the lips.
Even if they were ugly.
Sure, it sucks because it goes on cold and then turns hot, leaving you both shivering and sweating, trying to decide if you need an extra blanket or none at all. But it works. Kudos to Aleve and ice packs too, but without the pain relieving power of menthol, life would suck.

Friend of Ramblings Casey sends along this link about Brewers' trades.
It doesn't go in depth at all, as it fails to take into account trading an acquired player, but many of you will enjoy it.

Aleve, Icy Hot, and an ice pack have lowered my back pain to a 7 or 8. No spasms for 30 minutes.
I still recall the Rambling mom in the hospital for some sort of infection, at least a half decade before her passing. Laying on her back was causing her pain, so she kept asking if she could roll over on her side. No one would let her do that without a doctor's permission. Finally, the doc showed up and said he heard her back was bothering her, and asked on a scale of 1-10 how much pain she was in. Her reply?
I don't know, 12 or 13 I guess.
He let her move onto her side.

Jeff Levering talked about this article about Jacob Barnes as a "surprise" in 2017 when I was picking up the Rambling son today.
Always fun to see who did not pay attention last year, as Barnes was very good when healthy in '16 as well.

No wonder ESPN was bleeding cash. They had dozens of people on the payroll I've never heard of, and these are reporters and such, not behind the scenes people.
No word if they will continue to move left even more...though they might well be up against the wall now.

Thames left with hammy tightness, he's been bothered by that previously running the bases (per me, not CC). Hopefully, 48 hours off will assist in his recovery. Probably get treatment today and 1 or 2 times before the game FRI.

It's almost as if he did not believe a word he said.
Meghan McCain and Trish Regan could barely contain their glee on Outnumbered, as they said while they are both red blooded capitalists who has no problem with people making money (my feelings exactly), the Dems have complained about this for decades, and to see their hero, their god; taking cash, windsurfing with billionaires, and going against everything he said while in office.
What's he gonna say? I hate you people, but I need the Benjamins.--Meghan McCain imagining Obama's Wall Street speech

Huge tax cut and Freedom Caucus agrees to support revised health care plan.
One almost would think that Trump has been making deals for decades.
EDIT: And ESPN has had to get rid of 100 people because they moved so far left they are losing millions.
Still not tired of winning.
EDIT 2: Standard deduction doubled! Corporate rate lowered to 15%!
It's a great day to be an American taxpayer.

Remember when any criticism of Obama was met with a response of "That's racist?""
This is basically what Dean is saying. The left, almost without exception, bases arguments on emotion, not facts or logic. Hence, their continued adoration of all things socialist, despite a lack of any real world success.
Or, the continued talking point, whatever problem is set aside in front of them, of "But what about the children?!?" Or that the California "drought" was caused by climate change, despite history being littered with 5-10 year dry spells in the past century. Or that the current heavy precipitation is caused by...wait for it...climate change.

Preach it Rand.
Considering 45% of the citizens pay no income tax at all (more than that when you consider illegals and those who work for cash), it's time to "share the wealth" with those paying all the bills.

It works until they run out of other people's money.
If you think something is expensive now, wait until it's free.
The irony is, they're always surprised when it fails...as it has every time since time began. But the next time, we'll do it right.

I'm not surprised at all Thames is hitting. If all his HR's were doubles, my Adam Lind comparison would be looking genius. That said, I don't think I said it on air, but I had in my notes I thought he'd hit 20-25 HR's and a lot of doubles.
Looks like I may have underestimated his ceiling a bit.

A wise man has said something similar.
When they've been wrong for half a century and every idea requires more cash from the successful, you'd think folks would figure out it's just simple income redistribution at some point.
They hate the free market because it works.

Why do they hate free speech so?
Money quote: You see, the words “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech” were too expansive for liberals’ tastes because they prevented Congress from making laws abridging the freedom of speech.

Jenny McCarthy is sitting somewhere saying, "500K kids in Africa? So?"
Of course, back when they used DDT, it was a fraction of that. We've probably lost about 50M in the past 3+ decades because of the asinine, shortsighted banning of DDT.

Walking back into the living room, my lower back suddenly spasmed. I paused a sec and it kind of slipped back into place. However, as I sat, it continued to hurt, so I gutted it out, walking to the bathroom and putting on a pain patch.

Newcastle United has played their way back into the English Premier League by finishing in the top 2 in the regular season of the Sky Bet Championship, after being relegated last season.

Somehow the left twists tax cuts as a "gift to the rich." If we're going to cut taxes, we must cut them for the people who actually PAY them.--Trish Regan
True that. When almost half pay zero, complaining about those that do seems especially selfish.
This is why a sales or consumer tax is vastly superior. Not only is saving and investing rewarded, those who normally avoid taxes suddenly are contributing and have skin in the game...lower income, illegals, drug dealers, those that work "off the books" for cash, and so on.
If one were cynical, one might believe the reason we do not have more consumer taxes is politicians realize they are more fair, and fairness is not the goal, but sticking it to the successful is.
