Goodness. The self importance of these fools is off the charts.

Sober curious? I'm curious how these buffoons get such drivel printed.

Hader with a nice inning.

Heh.



3/30/2019 09:18:00 PM



(3/30/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

That's funny, I heard this was the greatest plan in history!

Heh.


3/30/2019 11:00:00 AM



(3/30/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

If you don't like my beliefs...don't worry, I can change them if I see a poll that says otherwise.

Heh.


3/30/2019 08:00:00 AM



(3/30/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

I blame the National Auto Association.

They should, of course, be banned.

I just got whiplash.

She introduced a bill that was so stupid, her own party was embarrassed to vote on it. And she's taking credit for that.


3/29/2019 02:00:00 PM



(3/29/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

While one side lied nonstop for 2+ years.

History will not be kind. They will try to rewrite it, but those of us that are not liberal hacks will laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh.

And laugh.


3/29/2019 12:00:00 PM



(3/29/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

They choose their heroes poorly.


3/29/2019 09:00:00 AM



(3/29/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

I've been told this never happens.


3/29/2019 08:00:00 AM



(3/29/2019 02:00:00 AM) - Al

The house of cards seems to be crashing down.

One lie after another often leads to that.

(3/28/2019 11:56:00 PM) - Al

It will be interesting to see who gets a save chance in the next day or two if the opportunity arises. I would guess Barnes and Claudio would be the favorites,  but as Counsell showed with Burnes last year, he could just go with anyone and then let it ride. 



3/28/2019 11:56:00 PM



(3/28/2019 04:30:00 PM) - Al

I Want People To Think I Have Money To Throw Away for $1000, Alex.


3/28/2019 04:30:00 PM



(3/28/2019 01:00:00 PM) - Al

Normally, I would be talking about Opening Day. This year, that will be limited. Other things going on. Will discuss at a later time.


3/28/2019 01:00:00 PM



(3/28/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

It's funny because it's true.

It's easy to change your mind when you don't really believe in anything.


3/28/2019 12:00:00 PM



(3/28/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

If you have mental problems, none of these things will help at all. You need to get therapy or medication, and possibly both.

Pretending you can fix mental health issues with stupid crap like this is detrimental to those with struggles and those of us trying to understand them.


3/28/2019 11:00:00 AM



(3/28/2019 10:05:00 AM) - Al

Don't like what they stand for?

Give them a minute, they'll change.


3/28/2019 10:05:00 AM



(3/28/2019 08:30:00 AM) - Al

Well, prove it was not true.

Heh. They're so ignorant, it's hard to believe they walk upright. 




3/28/2019 08:30:00 AM



(3/28/2019 06:22:00 AM) - Al

For years when I was a retail manager, I was in the same district as the New Berlin store. I never heard it pronounced any other way than the German city.

Not once.



3/28/2019 06:22:00 AM



(3/28/2019 02:30:00 AM) - Al

As we saw with Justice Kavanaugh, the left will destroy anyone in an attempt for political gain. They are terrible people. They prove it every day.

Luckily, most of us are not tin foil hat wearing hacks and see right through it.

These damn rubes just don't understand how much smarter the elites are.

(3/27/2019 04:00:00 PM) - Al

Want proof Obama's foreign policy was historically bad?

Read this.

Puppies do not fix everything...but they sure help.

When you lose editorial boards...


3/27/2019 02:30:00 PM



(3/27/2019 01:49:00 PM) - Al

Well, his only hope was to plead not guilty because he's nuts. Let's not make him out to be a nice guy. That said, he's got 2 life sentences plus the kidnapping charge. He's an idiot to plead guilty...but I guess we all knew that.


3/27/2019 01:49:00 PM



(3/27/2019 01:00:00 PM) - Al

It's pathetic and sad. And it's exactly what they are.


3/27/2019 01:00:00 PM



(3/27/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

The four corner offense depends on the clock running out. In the real world, it doesn't.


3/27/2019 12:00:00 PM



(3/27/2019 11:30:00 AM) - Al

Huckabee is brilliant. If only he would have run for president without the religious crap attached.


3/27/2019 11:30:00 AM



(3/27/2019 11:24:00 AM) - Al

They don't even pretend to give a damn about law enforcement, so, this fits perfectly.


3/27/2019 11:24:00 AM



(3/27/2019 02:00:00 AM) - Al

Many have argued the past few days that this is why they did the whole Trump thing, because they knew this would eventually leak.

(3/26/2019 09:47:00 PM) - Al

The dossier is pure fiction. You can't prove a negative. There is not a single thing in it that has been proven. All you see is this...well, they can't prove it's not true.

That's because it's impossible.


3/26/2019 09:47:00 PM



(3/26/2019 08:11:00 PM) - Al

Every single Senate Dem refuses to vote for idiocy.

She's a moron's moron.


3/26/2019 08:11:00 PM



(3/26/2019 08:08:00 PM) - Al

Jennings seems like an obvious candidate for a minor league contract with the Crew.


3/26/2019 08:08:00 PM



(3/26/2019 04:30:00 PM) - Al

Living out of a school bus? I've lived in worse.

(3/26/2019 03:30:00 PM) - Al

Chicago remains the most corrupt city in the USA.

They know he's guilty, and they just don't care.

The prosecutor wants to have a career, it would seem. 


3/26/2019 03:30:00 PM



(3/26/2019 03:00:00 PM) - Al

As a wise man has said, being a liberal means never having to say you're sorry.




3/26/2019 03:00:00 PM



(3/26/2019 02:33:00 PM) - Al

Tim Miles took a dead Nebraska program and brought it back to life. It is now a very attractive job, so it might bring in another quality coach, but it's a shame they gave up on him.


3/26/2019 02:33:00 PM

(3/25/2019 07:26:00 PM) - Al

I find it hard to believe no team would give even a middling prospect for a veteran innings eater like Straily. Is $5M considered too much for that these days?

He will certainly have plenty of interest, from a number of teams.


3/25/2019 07:26:00 PM



(3/25/2019 06:54:00 PM) - Al

I love it when stupid people punk themselves.


3/25/2019 06:54:00 PM



(3/25/2019 06:43:00 PM) - Al

A hack of mammoth proportion. What a fool.


3/25/2019 06:43:00 PM



(3/25/2019 03:00:00 PM) - Al

Not only that, but that fella ain't all that masculine either.

Oops. Never mind.


3/25/2019 03:00:00 PM



(3/25/2019 02:30:00 PM) - Al

Oh what a tangled web we weave...quite badly, I might add.

1. I'm so glad they're not on my side.

2. They choose their heroes poorly.


3/25/2019 02:30:00 PM



(3/25/2019 02:08:00 PM) - Al

Class just oozes out of them...

(3/25/2019 01:30:00 PM) - Al

Dershowitz is a Dem, but he's honest. He has been this entire time, and the left has torn him apart for it.

The truth is far more devastating to liberals than anything we can make up.

If only there would have been a wise man that saw this the entire time and laughed about it. Now, remind me how it's colder because it's hotter.

Please, please keep talking.


3/25/2019 01:30:00 PM



(3/25/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

Heh.

I love the way they missed this for 2.5 years, even after we pointed it out. They're so stupid, they still don't understand why letting people keep more of their money makes them work harder.

It's a puzzler. 


3/25/2019 12:00:00 PM



(3/25/2019 11:00:00 AM) - Al

I don't understand why the old media has such a low approval rating. It's a mystery we may never solve.

The funniest thing is how a week ago, Mueller was one of the finest human beings to ever walk the planet. Now, he's a darn fool, and oh, by the way, he's ugly too.


3/25/2019 11:00:00 AM



(3/25/2019 09:40:00 AM) - Al

Chatting with friend in Georgia this morning.  Took shower, ran errand, showed up at store at 9:41...opens at 10.

Realized I had added an hour onto time in my head while chatting, as GA is Eastern, of course.

Oops.

Bobby is white, stupid, and I love him.


3/25/2019 08:00:00 AM



(3/25/2019 07:30:00 AM) - Al

I think he lied.

By the way, Barry told us 100 times we could keep our plan and our doctor. Barry lied too. You would too if you had a record like they do.


3/25/2019 07:30:00 AM



(3/25/2019 06:30:00 AM) - Al

Somehow, Dan Rather saying stupid things is quite possibly the most fitting thing that happened. What a beautiful day to be a capitalist Republican in America.

Of course, so is every day since 1776.


3/25/2019 06:30:00 AM



(3/25/2019 02:00:00 AM) - Al

Well, he's a conservative, so he deserved it.


3/25/2019 02:00:00 AM


Sunday, March 24, 2019

(3/24/2019 09:30:00 PM) - Al

It is a mystery how it happened...

Heh.

I will ignore their silliness until my last breath. Of course, I always did...I'm not a hack.

I would not bet on it

Even worse, he outsmarted them, and has the nerve to be hellishly successful too. 


3/24/2019 09:30:00 PM



(3/24/2019 07:00:00 PM) - Al

I recall a wise man saying they can delay and stall all they want, but eventually, they're gonna have to admit they have nothing and it's going to be off the charts embarrassing.

Guess what happened?

These things tend to occur when you base an "investigation" on the losing candidate trying to drunkenly make excuses after the election loss.

That said, if you were Hillary, you'd drink too. A lot.

Remember, you always accuse the other side of what you have done and are doing. It leads to confusion.

The irony? Barry was so worthless at foreign policy and economic policy, even his most ardent fans argue which one he was worse at. 


3/24/2019 07:00:00 PM



(3/24/2019 05:17:00 PM) - Al

Lie every day for almost 2.5 years, and it's not going to be forgiven.

The hell with them. I would not vote for them if they were unopposed.


3/24/2019 05:17:00 PM



(3/24/2019 02:30:00 PM) - Al

They are a parody of themselves.

Also, even though Obama was a terrible president with frighteningly bad results, he was a god.

The results don't matter. You stupid rubes.


3/24/2019 02:30:00 PM



(3/24/2019 01:00:00 PM) - Al

This is an outstanding point. He pretty much can do anything now.

If only there was a fairy tale the left could look to for help about constantly lying and not having the public believe them...


3/24/2019 01:00:00 PM



(3/24/2019 11:45:00 AM) - Al

Kratz to the Giants for a minor league infielder.  MLBTR has the details, I cannot link on my phone.

Getting anything except a waiver fee for him is unexpected.  Hopefully, he can get more big league time with SF.



3/24/2019 11:45:00 AM



(3/24/2019 11:30:00 AM) - Al

So easy to mock.

So glad they're not on my side.


3/24/2019 11:30:00 AM



(3/24/2019 09:00:00 AM) - Al

Unexpectedly.

(3/23/2019 11:00:00 PM) - Al

Well, I guess that makes everything ok then...

These are the same people that insist a botched abortion at 9 months be left to die.

Oof.


3/23/2019 11:00:00 PM



(3/23/2019 07:30:00 PM) - Al

Truth hurts.

Sowell is really smart, even if he is a racist.


3/23/2019 05:30:00 PM

Unexpectedly.


3/23/2019 04:00:00 PM



(3/23/2019 02:37:00 PM) - Al

As predictable as the day is long.

Just like they didn't need any evidence against Kavanaugh. It's easy when you don't really believe in anything.


3/23/2019 02:37:00 PM



(3/23/2019 02:30:00 PM) - Al

The irony? When I called them liars and fake news, I was being kind.

For 2 years, they just made stuff up and pretended it was true. It was not. Terrible, unprofessional hacks.

Their death is deserved. The hell with them. 


3/23/2019 02:30:00 PM



(3/23/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

Well said.

Embarrassing hacks, one and all. And the old media showed why we ignore everything they say.


3/23/2019 12:00:00 PM



(3/23/2019 10:30:00 AM) - Al

The same number as flying pigs.

Tighten up them tin foil hats. Heh.


3/23/2019 10:30:00 AM



(3/23/2019 07:00:00 AM) - Al

They dug their own grave.

That's a shame.


3/23/2019 07:00:00 AM



(3/23/2019 02:30:00 AM) - Al

As much as I hate to bring common sense into this, if there is a species of bigfoots, why do none ever die?

Because no one has ever found a carcass. Ever.

A liberal hypocrite?

I don't think I've ever seen that before...


3/22/2019 07:30:00 PM



(3/22/2019 06:30:00 PM) - Al

Heh.

I am shocked...shocked, that the Dems and a military hero disagree.


3/22/2019 06:30:00 PM



(3/22/2019 05:54:00 PM) - Al

Worst thing that can happen in the big dance is to run into a hot team. Not a whole lot you can do either.


3/22/2019 05:54:00 PM



(3/22/2019 05:51:00 PM) - Al

It's funny because it's true.

They're hacks you see. Lying, terrible people, and hacks.


3/22/2019 05:51:00 PM



(3/22/2019 05:02:00 PM) - Al

None.

Peralta makes rotation, Anderson will begin season in bullpen.

(3/22/2019 12:34:00 PM) - Al

Brewers sign Alex Wilson, who has been effective, if a bit generic, for several seasons.

I would guess this is a major league contract, but not positive yet.

It is a major league deal. I assume Wahl will be put on the 60 day injured list to make room on the 40 man.



3/22/2019 12:34:00 PM



(3/22/2019 12:30:00 PM) - Al

When you are willing to bypass the "innocent until proven guilty" standard, it's apparent you're willing to bypass just about anything for political gain.

By the way, those women accusing the Virginia Dems and Ellison in MN are different. They're just sluts who happen to remember dates, times, and places; and didn't get caught lying on several occasions.

Because shut up. 


3/22/2019 12:30:00 PM



(3/22/2019 11:30:00 AM) - Al

They hate nothing more than people who love capitalism and not punishing the successful.

(3/22/2019 08:54:00 AM) - Al

Yep.

McCain was a scumbag in 2008. Romney gave a woman cancer in 2012.

The more things change, the more the "crying wolf" and then claiming the next guy is worse stays the same.

It's what you do when you have nothing except punishing the successful and insisting a utopian America involves standing in line for moldy bread because it makes everyone "equal."


3/22/2019 08:54:00 AM



(3/22/2019 07:35:00 AM) - Al

Quick thought...if Kimbrel could be had for 1y/$18M, I think a dozen teams would be on him. I think he ends up with 2-3y even now.



3/22/2019 07:35:00 AM

I'm not sure if they're ignorant or intelligent.

Either way, they do not understand you do not stop bad men by punishing good men.

Knebel has partial tear of the UCL. Will get 2nd opinion. Tommy John surgery a possibility, or rehab.


3/21/2019 07:40:00 PM



(3/21/2019 05:38:00 PM) - Al

The worst part about this is it makes Kratz have one less suitor, in theory at least, if Pina and Grandal stay healthy.


3/21/2019 05:38:00 PM



(3/21/2019 01:49:00 PM) - Al

Knebel to have elbow checked out.

The Athletic reporting a deal between the Crew and Kimbrel may be close."

Notice that says nothing,  but still noteworthy.



3/20/2019 07:47:00 PM



(3/20/2019 01:52:00 PM) - Al

Heyman reports Brewers' interest in Kimbrel "pretty serious."

Also reports Arby's new 2 for $5 fish sandwich special is "pretty fishy."

(3/20/2019 10:30:00 AM) - Al

This would be one of the funniest things to ever happen.


3/20/2019 10:30:00 AM



(3/20/2019 10:29:00 AM) - Al

Rumor has it Kimbrel and the Brewers are continuing to discuss a contract, probably of the short term variety. Could this prompt other teams to jump in with a 1-3 year offer?

Yep. Most certainly. I will say this, however...if it leaked, it is probably very serious talks. That doesn't mean an agreement will happen though.



3/20/2019 10:29:00 AM



(3/20/2019 08:00:00 AM) - Al

2019 roster projection
Chacin
Davies
Anderson
Burnes
Woodruff

Hader
Knebel
Claudio
Guerra
Albers
Williams
Barnes
Petricka

Grandal
Pina

Aguilar
Moustakas
Arcia
Shaw
Thames
Perez

Braun
Cain
Yelich
Gamel

I'm guessing they go with Petricka instead of Peralta to begin the season. I think Kratz will be released or traded so he can remain in the majors. I think Spangenberg may sneak his way to the majors when the bullpen is rested, but the team plays 31 games in the first 34 days. I would expect Houser and Peralta to both be up before May, even if the team is healthy. I also think we'll see our old friend Nate Orf back in the majors before the all star break. I bet we'll see Troy Stokes make his debut in the OF earlier than most think. Finally, Aaron Wilkerson will be an important piece of the 2019 club.

Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

I assume Fields has an early opt out, as he probably had at least a dozen minor league contract offers.

I am not sure if he can go back down once he is brought up, so he may actually hurt the bullpen versatility. Hence, let's hope he is good.

Even though he received a major league contract over the winter, Brewers infielder/outfielder Cory Spangenberg may open the season in the minors, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes.--MLBTR


Early candidate for least knowledgeable sentence of the season. As I knew when I was 6, a major league contract only means you are on the 40 man. Every team has 12-15 players on a major league contract that will open the year in the minor leagues, a fact apparently lost on "Connor."

Rambling wife stopped by post office to pick up registered package requiring a signature.

Closed at 430.

If only their hours were the size of their pensions. Or how much money they lose daily. 

ADDED: Proof I married well, Rambling wife replied, "Ain't that the truth?"

Heh. Tennessee holds a 3 hour meeting and admits they have no idea if the people in the picture went to school there.

Meanwhile, the governor of Virginia admits it was him and no one gives a rat's ass.

They know it's true. That's why they call it a lie.

That's why I'm glad they're not on my side.

I was assured that 3% growth was impossible for an economy as large as the USA's.

Sometimes, I wonder if the left isd being totally honest with me...

This reeks of being a favor to big tobacco.

Billions in tax subsidies goes to tobacco producers every year. Why?

Because the government knows better.

The idea of "transforming" the greatest country in the history of the planet is, to be blunt, rather stupid and shortsighted.

Wahl out for season.

I would assume he will be placed on the 60 day DL which opens up a spot on the 40 man for an addition, or for a nonroster invitee to make the 25 man (and in effect, the 40 man) roster.

Just saw a woman carrying a carry on size bag and an empty box as she got into a waiting vehicle at the airport. 

The box was about shoebox size, though with taller sides. I can only imagine, at some point during her journey, she made a conscious, thought out decision that, well, "That box is far too nice to throw away," with perhaps an, "It's just the perfect size for mailing" added on at the end to justify to herself that she just transported trash across the country.

If only there was some sort of economic theory which has shown this to be the case for centuries.

Wages are determined by the free market. Any encroachment on this will lead to inequality on one side or the other.

Bucks extend Bledsoe, will sign Gasol when he clears waivers, and win another game on the west coast.

Quite a day.

The old media pushes socialism because they, by nature, are low paid and not very good at what they do.

These are the good old days. Some folks are just too busy wishing the streets were paved with gold to enjoy the good times.

Whatever strikes me as interesting, and serious Milwaukee Brewers thoughts. If you are a believer in respecting OBP, throwing strikes, and keeping the ball in the park, you may have found the place you've been searching for. I believe in low taxes, small government, and am not afraid to be labeled patriotic. If you are interested in sausage race results, walk up music, or professional wrestling, you may wish to click elsewhere.

The Ramblings' manifesto can be found here.

I'm happy to pay taxes to help the helpless. I don't like paying taxes to help the clueless. Look at the Occupy movement...I'm forced to pay taxes to help those whose plight I delight in.--Dennis Miller

If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, and your life will be brief.--President Trump

Never have lives less lived been more chronicled.--Dennis Miller

I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.--Mad Dog Mattis

I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money.--Thomas Sowell

Ramblings makes me want to poke my eyes out with a sharp stick.--Marxist sympathizer (one of Ramblings' proudest moments)
