Okay, to make sure I don’t cut it close, this time I’m submitting it… THE NIGHT BEFORE. WOOOOOOOOAAAAAHHHHH
I estimate only 10-12 Primates care about the NBA, but with our own thread, we won’t detract from what this site is really about: Vladimir Putin’s draft strategy, Stephen Drew’s breakfast, and whether Kevin has taken a material step toward harming Russell Westbrook.
You didn’t think I forgot, did you?
For the last year or so, the Astros have reportedly been offering various long-term deals to some of the young players in their organization, using the carrot of guaranteed millions to try and buy out a couple of free agent years. Up until now, no one had signed the offer, and Evan Longoria remained the record holder for fewest number of days of service before signing a long-term deal. However, with first base prospect Jon Singleton, the Astros have now codified the first deal that officially ...Read More...

Pittsburgh Press, June 2, 1914:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. war in Iraq has cost $1.7 trillion with an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans, expenses that could grow to more than $6 trillion over the next four decades counting interest, a study released on Thursday said.
The war has killed at least 134,000 Iraqi civilians and may have contributed to the deaths of as many as four times that number, according to the Costs of War Project by the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown ...Read More...

Teams can trade draft picks?
The Dalai Lama is not amused.
Crying, Waiting, Hoping, Collecting.
It’s only money but I still don’t see a good reason for the Sox to sign Drew. Moving Bogaerts is not a good long-term decision. The Sox, as Holt is showing, have other options at third base.

That’s what makes these pictures fascinating; we’re not used to the follow-throughs ...Read More...

Saturday, May 31, 2014
So all a catcher has to do is tell the ump what the count should be and VOILA?!
Adams to DL. Taveras will start today and they say he will play a lot for the next two weeks. I haven’t been this excited about a call up since John Gall.
Awareness of the Probabilities…pretty sure Bouzouki Joe Records had them on a Turkish Freakout comp.
