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. The anti-ESPN of blogs –

My Twitter buddy Stef says this is one of her best interviews. Adult language at the link.




2017-02-27T18:03:00.146-06:00

I wonder if any hate crimes actually happened.




2017-02-27T16:00:22.124-06:00

Fight like a girl.

The days of sitting back and accepting the bad behavior of the left is over.




2017-02-27T15:00:16.357-06:00

Why are liberal college campuses such a corrupt bastion of racial and gender discrimination?

It's exhausting being unhappy all the time, blaming others is all they got.

Carbs are empty calories that do nothing* except provide profits for those manufacturing them. Our government provides huge subsidies for those growing them. They also had cereal and processed grains at the top of the food chart for many years until many laughed at them.

The only thing I find funnier is the way so many "foodies" incorporate "organic honey" and "pure sugar" into recipes, while they mock corn syrup and artificial sweeteners (that contain almost zero calories and digestible carbs).

It's not about health, it's about the money trail.



*Yes, they taste really good too.

As we say in the south, if a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her?--Sarah Huckabee Sanders, on the president not going to the WH Correspondent's Dinner

Amen.  I admit, I find it very funny that the old media that tears down the president at every opportunity is pouting he'd not going to be there. Talk about out of touch. 

 




2017-02-27T12:00:06.890-06:00

Holding a "let's complain" session might be enough to lure in the gullible old media, but Paul Ryan got 65% of the vote last election...in comparison, Reagan got 59% in the 1984 presidential election that is considered a landslide of monumental proportion.

They just don't get it. Voting is what's important, not self important wasting time.

Remember how they wasted all that money on the Walker recall? And were met by an apathetic public that happily showed up and voted for fiscal responsibility in greater numbers than before? All the loud complaining? All the insistence that Walker was very unpopular?

What does that remind you of?




2017-02-27T10:53:46.947-06:00

I've been suggesting this for about 30 years, so this is one of the most pleasant developments I've seen in ages.

As many have pointed out, thus far, one of the most astounding accomplishments of the Trump presidency is the sudden concern of the left and the old media (but, I repeat myself) about government spending.




2017-02-27T10:43:41.975-06:00

When they go broke, I hope they don't come running to DC for help.




2017-02-27T10:40:50.374-06:00

Totally serious here: If only 18% of the country was optimistic about the future in July and now 40% are (WSJ/NBC poll), that's news, right?

Nope. Not if it's positive.

Expect a plethora of file footage on the homeless and hungry, after dusting it off since it was not run for 8 years.




2017-02-27T10:37:33.584-06:00

This confirms what I have often said...fewer are insured now than were before Obamacare went into effect.

And unless you are all but broke, and probably qualify under the Medicaid portion anyway, you're paying a lot more for lesser coverage.

Other than that...




2017-02-27T09:00:22.041-06:00

What if your address determined the quality of your grocery store?

This is the world the anti school choice people want. Not because it's good for the kids...because it's good for the unions.

Ponder that.




2017-02-27T08:00:30.578-06:00

You get the feeling the hysterics and silliness will soon become much more subdued, as I've seen a dozen or so pieces in the past week or so which mirrored this one, and, dare I say, what I've been saying since the day after the election.

That said, as long as the old media continues to attack, many on the left will feel free to do so as well. But soon, common sense would say, the party itself will realize their missteps and begin to focus on 2018 and 2020.

Unfortunately.

 Fact check: True.

Keep reading on FB and Twitter that Netflix is down. That said, we must be special, because we've been watching Fuller House for hours with no problems.

Clean living my friends.




2017-02-26T19:54:29.002-06:00

This is how they treat fellow lefties, imagine how they'd be to us on the right.




2017-02-26T19:28:35.708-06:00

I've seen a lot today about boycotting the Oscars tonight.

I've been boycotting them for about 2-3 decades. I guess I was ahead of my time. Saving Private Ryan losing to some piece of crap was the last straw for myself, though I rarely paid much attention even before that.

Just when you think Hillary is as disliked as any woman out there, Chelsea kicks her in the shin and sprints out to a small lead.

There are too many money quotes to cut and paste, but it's tough to resist these two:

---“I’m sorry, I don’t talk to the press and that applies to you, unfortunately,” Chelsea said. “Even though I think you’re cute.”

The interrogator? A 9-year-old “kid reporter” from Scholastic News.

 ---Chelsea is regarded as an overeducated underachiever. “It bothers the s—t out of me that everyone thinks she’s the greatest thing since sliced bread,” one ex-associate told Daniel Halper, author of “Clinton Inc: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “She’s never had a [real] job. She’s been in college for 12 years.”

Late last year, leaked emails from Bill Clinton’s longtime aide Doug Band underscored that sentiment. “She is acting like a spoiled brat kid who has nothing else to do but create issues … because she, as she has said, hasn’t found her way and has a lack of focus in her life.”


Forgive me for being giddy at the possibility of having Chelsea become an unofficial spokesperson of the left. 

Of course, those that think it could never happen, all it would take in New York is for her to make a deal with the party, and I doubt any mere citizen would bother running against her, because they'd be told not to. And in NYC, the GOP often does not bother running candidates for many offices, so the only campaigning would be the primary.

I assume many of the storm chasers that took part in this tribute became stormchasers because of Twister.




2017-02-26T15:00:11.526-06:00

Bad things often happen to bad people.

Hard to believe no employer wants to take a chance on someone who lies infinitely. Most employers, because they're old meanies, prefer hiring honest people.




2017-02-26T14:37:21.690-06:00

Brewers have hired a second bullpen catcher, former minor leaguer Robinzon Diaz. Joins Marcus Hanel.--JS

I would assume this is directly related to having a Spanish speaker in the bullpen at all times to go over scouting reports and strategery.  




2017-02-26T14:28:16.813-06:00

One of my pet peeves-fans are paying increasingly high prices for spring training tickets and are not seeing regular lineup players. Not fair.--Bernie Pleskoff

1. The free market works...if the fans were unhappy, they would not buy the tickets.

2. Does this scout really want regular players to be "forced" to play a few innings in meaningless exhibitions. Is 162 games not long enough to test their durability? 

Painful.




2017-02-26T14:13:21.102-06:00

Ron Roenicke told us yesterday that Jett Bandy can really throw. We just saw it for the first time as Ethier is out trying to steal second.--Adam, MLB.com

That doesn't mean he's accurate, but good to hear, especially since we got kind of spoiled watching Maldy and Lucroy the past few seasons.




2017-02-26T14:00:14.743-06:00

Once again, Sarah Palin was right.

Nothing I find funnier than the left insisting supply and demand isn't important, and then scratching their heads when the free market does the opposite of what they wanted.

Hard to believe the greatest firearms salesman of all time could misread the public.
