The thing is, when you're at someone else's home, you follow their customs. For example, the Rambling inlaws are Catholic. I am not. However, it is not difficult to shut up and do their thing for a dinner or day. Of course, I'm not a selfish clod either.

The idea so many on the left are puzzled by this shows what bad people most of them are.

That's because they don't want to more in taxes...they want others to pay more in taxes.

The great thing about Sowell is everything he says is 100% true...and the socialists always call him a racist because they're not smart enough to know he's black.

The fact the tobacco lobby is hurt by vaping is probably pretty important.

Buy illegal homemade stuff, the odds are it's made cheaply. Surprise, surprise.

If only a wise man could have predicted this was much ado about nothing. Like pretty much everything the old media discusses.

They got played again.

Every single time. It's simply astounding how bad a job the old media does.

Unexpectedly. Coincidence. Good luck.

The people that earned it keeping more of their money. What a concept.

It's exactly what every single Dem insists will never work.

Aguilar was DFA'd the other day by the Rays. He did a fine job in MIL and has even splits.

1B is not a tough position to fill, but Jesus would be a nice add at a low price.

The president has now visited the troops overseas on Thanksgiving one more time than the previous one.

{Actually, I've read that, but I don't know if it's true. But enough folks are saying it, I assume it's true.}

Always had time to show up on ESPN to make bracket picks though. Ironic how that works.

EDIT: From the Instapundit comments, You know who else went to Afghanistan? Russia!

Heh, He's right ya know. The conspiracy nuts are gonna go bonkers!


11/28/2019 03:24:00 PM



(11/28/2019 02:00:00 PM) - Al

They know it doesn't work.

That's why they push for it so.

You see how upset they are the president has the economy humming along with basically just less regulation and lower taxes. This ain't difficult. They just pretend it is.

The worst part about sitting at the kid's table? The only way to move up is when somebody dies!

Old joke, but true.

Liked both Davies and Grisham. Especially Zach, as many of us can at least imagine being as good as him, though that would still be 100 times better than we actually are.

As my friend Jason and I have said, we have no idea how good they are. I watched Ned Yost IV play for the Woodchucks here in Wausau. He was a man among boys, 6-4, muscular, every throw to 2B between innings on the bag, hit the ball hard every time up. Never came close to the majors. Quit to be a coach as he knew he had no chance.

Watch those on the left flip and flop as the polls go up and down..

It's easy to do when you don't really believe in anything.

(11/28/2019 09:30:00 AM) - Al

Amen.

Protesters are what people do when they don't have jobs and/or the brains to do stuff that actually matters. They're too stupid to realize they turn public opinion the opposite direction.

The greatest gun salesmen are all on the left.

They simply have no concept of how people think. That's also why they support socialism.

I've talked about this with hundreds of people over the years.

Those of us that grew up on farms say 12-2, but if you do not to worry about that, the mid afternoon time frame works perfectly, as you do not have to eat again that night (or maybe just a snack).

You tell people you had your holiday dinner at noon, they look at you like you didn't get the memo.

Guerra is a nice reliever. Again, is he worth $3.5-4M in arby? Probably not.

It's a business. You overpay a few players $1-2M, and pretty soon, you're talking about real money.


11/27/2019 06:58:00 PM



(11/27/2019 06:51:00 PM) - Al

He's going to make $10M in arby. He's worth about half that, maybe 2/3rd's. This ain't rocket science.


11/27/2019 06:51:00 PM

Just got an email from someone who had a class with Bobby Warns II in high school that had never seen that video. Said they (not sure of gender) were not in the area for the funeral and service and never knew it existed.

Also said they had a good cry. If you're a patriotic American, tough one to watch, even now, years later. Hard to believe his daughter, still just a clump of cells then, is 14 or 15 now.


11/27/2019 02:01:00 PM



(11/27/2019 01:30:00 PM) - Al

This indicates the Padres felt Urias would be part of the future core. Players are not chosen at random.

They must either think they are closer than most do, or they were worried about off field stuff.


11/27/2019 01:30:00 PM



(11/27/2019 12:30:00 PM) - Al

Heh. GDP was always revised lower under Obama. Usually revised higher now.

Just coincidence. Nothing to see here.

Oh, by the way, that long awaited recession the Dems have insisted is on the way for 3 years? No sign of it yet.

DAMN IT!!!!


11/27/2019 12:30:00 PM



(11/27/2019 12:17:00 PM) - Al

Urias trade value is based on his prospectdom, but considering these are usually very close, this is astounding. 


11/27/2019 12:17:00 PM



(11/27/2019 12:14:00 PM) - Al

MIL/SD discussed Grisham last summer too.

My guess is the Padres like Trent because he is a line drive /OBP hitter. A good fit for their home park.

(11/27/2019 12:00:00 PM) - Al

Annual Thanksgiving links, because I get sick of you guys emailing me asking for them. Especially the Schuller one. All have been printed many times over the years...I always wonder how many blogs far better than this one have started and ended in that time period.

Dr. Schuller's Thanksgiving story. By far the most requested link in Ramblings' history, someone e-mails for this several times a year.

Bobby Warns' tribute video...we should all be very thankful that we have a military full of men and women who are willing to take on evil and kill or be killed. Regardless of how many times I link to it (it's on the sidebar too, mind you), someone always writes to say they watched it for the first time and how well it is done.

Ben Stein wrote this 16 years ago, and it's just as true today, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, a true American holiday.


11/27/2019 12:00:00 PM



(11/27/2019 11:43:00 AM) - Al

***Added more at the bottom***

Huge trade for Crew, Grisham and Davies to Padres for 2 players.

As often occurs in MIL, they utilized Zach until he became kind of expensive, and then he is dealt for a younger, cheaper player. I have to think Trent was a bit of a "sell high" situation, as he broke out strongly in 2019. Time will tell if he can sustain that production, though his knowledge of the strike zone makes it likely he will have a nice career as at least a productive OF.

Eric Lauer is a former first round pick who had a solid 2nd MLB campaign. He fits the Stearns' model perfectly, very good K/BB ratio, solid K/9, and limited home runs allowed...though his numbers have been far better in pitcher friendly Petco, and, surprisingly, he has struggled immensely versus same handed batters. I assume both are seen as common problems for an inconsistent young pitcher who needs to mature. It seems likely he is penciled into the rotation from day one, as he has 25+ starts each of the past 2 seasons in SD. He will be 25 next season, and has 5 years of team control left.

Luis Arias is probably the focal point of this trade. He did very well in AA and AAA despite being 3-4 years younger than the average player. He is still only 23, and will have 6 seasons of team control remaining. He played mostly 2B in the majors, so only had 300 innings at SS, far too small a sample to use defensive metrics.

He has always walked quite a bit and had a solid OBP in the minors. He is listed at 5-9, 185, so he is well built and muscular, especially for a Mexican player, who are often wiry and fill out later. 26% of his hits were for extra bases in the minors...the age old adage is young players that have a lot of doubles and triples often see them turn into homers are they grow older. That is also a very good number for a middle infielder. Despite extra bases, he has never stolen many bases, and when he tries, has not had a high success rate.

The unsaid aspect of this trade is that it seems Arcia is not long for Milwaukee, as Hiura is entrenched at 2B, and Urias was not brought in to sit on the bench or play in AAA. It also means Braun, who I felt would spend a lot of time at 1B in 2020, is now back in LF every day, or at least 5 days a week, though the offseason has about 4 months until the games count.

ADDED: Padres' fans hate the trade. Many saying Urias was the 2nd or 3rd best SS prospect in the game before he fell off lists as he lost his rookie eligibility. They are pointing out he will go from an extreme pitcher's park to a power hitter's park that appears perfectly suited for him.

Pomeranz will sign with Padres. He likely made himself a fortune with a good couple months in MIL.

Sustained success is boring to the old media. It it bleeds, it leads.

This has never been done before. They do not know what to think.

(11/27/2019 10:30:00 AM) - Al

DAMN IT!!!

Imagine if this would have happened under Barry. Of course it did not, because he raised taxes and threw money away on a bloated health plan.

Because he was so darn intelligent. Of course, hopelessness is their brand. You can't convince people that bread lines are good if they're content working hard and trying to better themselves.

I'm thankful I was smart enough to ignore the liberal blasphemy I was taught and I grew up to be patriotic, conservative, and smart enough to not curse the success of others.

It's not a coincidence the wealthy supported Hillary last time. They have been taught to feel guilty for decades.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor or your good fortune. In a few years you'll be dead. Sadly, for many on the left, they won't be a bit more gloomy then...

I am waiting to see how the left spins this to try and convince the rubes the booming economy is only helping...other people.

Unfortunately for them, 90% of the country are "other people." And most of them vote red.

The left has now spoken out strongly against the 4th of July and military dogs.

They have no idea how bad they are at this. Complete amateurs. And, they are as unpatriotic as you can possibly get. I honestly don't understand why the negative and the miserable just don't leave if they have their country so much.

The hell with them.

Omar is a lefty bat. The fact no team is mentioned is also the way Stearns does business.

He is slightly below average at framing pitches. I think the Brewers probably care about that more than CS%.

Even friends on FB who work in factories are barely working this week...some only working today.

If I said only retail and restaurants are working this week in my area, I would not be exaggerating. I drove by the 2 hotels that cater almost exclusively to business travelers early this AM...both had less than 5 cars in the usually full parking lot.

She would have "committed suicide" a year or two ago on Earth 2.

And one of hypocrite royals would have hung out at a sex criminal's island and no one would care. Just for good measure, Andy. I ain't gonna forget you're a scumbag like the old media will.

Remember this the next time Kaepernick takes a 5 minute break from counting his Scrooge McDuck pile of cash to explain to us he's better than us.

Arcia's Steamer projection 2020--.308/.394, 702 OPS, 61 simple runs created
Gregorious' Steamer 2020---------..313/.450, 763 OPS, 70 src

You hear Didi's name attached to the Crew often, and while he will likely be better of the two in 2020, paying $6M more for one estimated win does not seem like a Stearns' type move. Especially since Orlando had a 731 OPS at age 22 and is certainly capable of breaking out at age 25. I would have to believe analysts would say there's a 1 in 3 chance Arcia will be better next season...that's why I see a guy like Holt being added, not a Gregorious.

Between this and the new USA tough stance on trade, China is going to be fortunate not to suffer mass starvation in the near future.

Of course, the old media insists the Chinese communists are the best, while our president is the enemy. Because they know better than us stupid rubes.

(11/24/2019 05:52:00 PM) - Al

Asdrubal Cabrera is my choice to sign with the Crew if they fail to entice Moustakas to return.

He is a plus 3B defensively and look at this.

Moustakas, L3Y--.319/.498, 817 OPS
Cabrera, L3Y------.336./.445, 781 OPS

Considering Moose played the past season and a half in a ballpark perfectly suited to his game and Cabrera spent 1.5 of the past 3 in offense depressing CitiField, they might be closer than that.

Brock Holt would be an interesting guy to bring in as an all around utility guy, as he has played some SS, though not a lot, with good defensive numbers.

Grandal signs 4y/$73M contract, which is at least 2 years too long.

I wish them luck.

3 names to remember here. I read another one a couple days ago, but I cannot recall who. Must have been a trade candidate. As I said earlier though, Vogt and Pina makes a lot of sense.

BUMPED: Alex Avila was the other name I saw. Lefty bat, poor man's Grandal, walks a lot, has HR pop. Framing numbers are average (Grandal was near the top, Pina well above average). And, he'll probably sign a 1 year deal. Made $4.25M last season.

Link also fixed. Related, Jason Castro signs with Braves.

That sound you hear is the left trying to impeach Kanye West, a hero and role model to many blacks of all ages.

The idea a group that votes 90-95% Dem might actually pay attention to the incredible drop in black unemployment and a far lower level of poverty as well and possibly give the GOP 15-20% of the black vote...suddenly, all but possibly 3-5 states are in play.

Hence, the unabated attacks on West. The irony? He's far better spoken than all but a couple of the Democrat candidates.

Andrew Sullivan and Glenn are 100% right. At the moment, the left believes in nothing except ridding the nation of the Constitution and capitalism.

Whenever the ignorance pops up hating free markets and the founding fathers, you're too far off course to even be concerned with.

As I have mentioned before, one of my high school classmates has run for state office in the last few years, twice failing to defeat a popular GOP incumbent. He recently said he is embarrassed by the national party, changed his affiliation to Independent, and while he is not a fan of the current president, has no inkling why the word impeachment has even been mentioned, pointing out his well worn copy of the Constitution he carries in his wallet, and reviews frequently, clearly points out grounds for impeachment, none of which have been reached whatsoever.

{I have a version on my phone, which I read at least once a month, because I'm a history enthusiast and proud patriot. Never forget where you came from, or how easily it can be taken away.}

When you lose the ones who are carrying the torch, it's pretty easy to see them losing the moderates and wishy washy ones. Don't forget, 20-30% of those attending the president's popular rallies identify themselves as Dems.

In late March, I visited my buddy Trista in the Atlanta area for a weekend. A while later, I wrote about it here. It struck a nerve with readers, generating more feedback than any post not involving the Rambling dog. At least once every couple weeks, someone emails me or messages me on Twitter and asks how she is doing.

Well, you nosy nellies, like all of us, she has had some ups and downs since I was there. We still refer to each other as family. We are still very close and chat almost every day. Often, several times a day. Often enough for the Rambling wife to roll her eyes so often and hard I'm surprised they haven't rolled off her face and down the stairs and out the front door.

Last week she messaged me that she was being promoted to the management team of the restaurant she is working at. As I have shared on many occasions, I hate just about everyone. She sometimes irritates me to no end. But somehow, at the end of the day we laugh, chat, and share our lives. Tears do not meet my eyes often. They did that day.

I hired her and promoted her myself a dozen years ago. Since then, she has been through hell and still fights and claws and believes. I could not be more proud of her if I had been in the delivery room the day she was born.

She sent this pic out recently saying she was talking with her fiancee and thought she looked nice. I always think she does and don't really care anyway, but I thought I'd share one she likes. Today is her first day and I'm even more proud than usual. Good luck my friend.

The Dems' best witness admitted today he had nothing but hearsay and there was no quid pro quo.

I just saw an ad for the Mister Rogers film starring Tom Hanks coming out in a couple weeks. President Trump should tweet about it and then sit back and watch with glee as the left attacks Fred Rogers, just as they have done the 4th of July, parades, and law enforcement.

Thames and Braun both possibly in 1B mix for MIL.

Ryan would almost certainly need a "1A" option at the position, due to his physical limitations and the probable defensive replacement the team would employ most games.

Reading between the lines, Stearns felt he could find similar production for less than the option price...perhaps even from Eric himself. It's easy to find 35-40 "starting" 1B types in MLB, though some of them will be employed as DH's or corner OF's as well.

Crew deals Anderson for young 1B.

Looks like a scouting grab, as Spanberger is not analytically gifted. However, he is athletic and has huge power...42% of his hits are for extra bases the past 2 years. Hit very well in South Atlantic League in 2018, has struggled in more pitcher friendly leagues since.

Anderson is a solid middle of the rotation arm. I assume team felt he was overpaid for his expected production and moved on. He is 32 as well...he will not get any better or more durable.

Also decline Thames' option for 2020, making him a free agent. I expected that to be exercised, as I do not see a replacement on the roster. That said, 1B is not difficult to find a replacement level talent to fill, or even a league average talent. Given the Brewers' penchant for platoons, I thought Eric would occupy the strong half next season as well.

ADDED: One could argue Braun could play 1B or at least some 1B. Grisham, Cain, and Yelich will probably see plenty of days as the OF.

Results matter.

This is why the deperate push to rewrite history is happening. At the end of the day, he led an economic malaise for 8 years and gave pallets of cash to terrorists.

Even better, I'm sure someone will be offended.

I've been wondering when someone in the old media would notice the fact milk prices have skyrocketed in 2019. I recall a wise man saying a couple years ago that with low prices for cattle and milk, that was the time to get in. Why? Because that's when the fewest people are doing so. If you follow the crowd, you'll follow them right into the gulag*. 75-90% of small businesses fail.

Never follow the crowd. Do the exact opposite.

Despite the fact the president has no idea what he's doing, it seems like all the commodity prices are way, way higher than in the spring. The two You Tube channels run by brothers, How Farms Work and The Rest of the Story, about crop and beef farmers in SW WI near the IA border, were showing their yield monitor registering 350+ bushels of corn per acre...last year, the national average was 170. They have both gone on record as saying this is the best year they have ever had..."a dream year" they have called it, because of the yield and price.

I adore how the left turns upon their own that refuse to lie and say President Trump is not having massive success.

One of the most sought after minor league free agents last offseason added to the 40 based on K numbers alone. Still only 25 too.

Goodness gracious.

To be fair, I don't enjoy getting bills either. I just don't pretend I have a problem that does not exist.

Unexpectedly. Coincidence. Bad luck.

You aren't a woman just because you say you are.

I'm not black or smart either.

The funny thing is, those that don't understand this also can't believe that many sexual assault charges are made up. Apparently, they are clueless as to the world.

We all laugh and make fun of CA for being hopelessly liberal, but like most states, 40% of the citizens are conservative. Perhaps more, because many see no reason to vote knowing it means nothing.

The thing that will help the GOP more than anything is what happens when the Dems can do whatever they want.

The Dems would almost certainly have the Senate had they not stupidly overplayed the Kavanaugh farce.

They always do the opposite of what they should.

There's a reason Barry hid him in a padded room for 8 years and only had him read prepared statements every time he was left off his leash.

The man is plum nuts. And has been for a couple decades.

I have not looked at the players they have to add to the 40, but I thought Spangenberg may be kept on the 40. Counsell seemed to enjoy using him as a platoon player when he was up.

I assume they will beg him to return on a minor league contract.

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.

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)
