Today one of our community members, DeuceBlades, lost his father suddenly. I would like to reach out to Deuce and his family during this time to lend my support and sympathy to them. We are a baseball community here and at the same time I like to think of us as a family too and I made this thread so you all can come in here to give your regards to Deuce and his entire family.
Updated to 8-23 ...I went to get a haircut last week which is really no big thing. There's not that much to talk about when you go to a place like that. You just sit down in the chair and let them have at it and then you're done. Except for this last time. When I was waiting my turn to get my cut two black women and a kid came in and one of them wanted to know if she could get a cut too. The barber explained to her that it was not a unisex salon but the woman didn't care about that. She wanted to have her head shaved completely bald. From what I could tell by just looking at her she had a very nice head of hair and I did not understand why she wanted to go around looking like a cue ball, but to each his own. I wanted to hang around to see the end result but I didn't so I'll just have to use my imagination on how it turned out. It would have been hilarious to see her change her mind once half her hair was laying on the barber shop floor but I was long gone at the time if anything like that happened. ...There are only a couple of weeks left in the International League season and for the second year in a row I have not managed to make it out to the ballpark at least one time. It's not that I don't have time for it because I do and the admission prices for minor league baseball is a lot more reasonable compared to what people who see major league games pay. I promised myself I would go to at least one this season. It has not been because of laziness but because of something else. I have developed a fear of crowds and I have no idea when or where I picked that up from. That's why I have been staying away. Not fun at all. ...It was reported last week that David Denson, a minor leaguer in the Milwaukee Brewers farm system, has become the first active player in professional baseball to reveal that he is gay. Well good for him but there was a guy named Glenn Burke who played for the Dodgers and Athletics in the 70's that had him beat by over thirty years. Never let the facts get in the way of a story. Denson struggled for a long time coming up with the right words to tell his teammates and when he finally did he found that many of them already had an idea that he was because he was the only guy on the team with an autographed 8x10 of Michael Sam hanging in his locker. ...Last Friday Super Mega Baseball was released for the PC. It's a game that generated a lot of interest here on the site and if you want to check it out for yourself here is the link for the game. Right now it is only $16.99 and you can get it at that price until August 28th. I am going to hold off on getting it until I get some feedback from other people in here. Two things I don't like about it already is that it will take one gigabyte of hard drive space to install and secondly you can't order the game and have it sent to your house. You have to purchase this game on Steam and that's something I'm not too familiar with. And if this game can be modded then I won't hesitate to shell out the money. One can only hope! ...If you ever wanted to know how much junk you accumulate over the years just try cleaning out your garage. ...At the end of last week MLB announced a new domestic violence policy that the commissioner has full authority over. This means that the next time Miguel Cabrera hits his wife because he went 0 for 4 in the game the players union can't cry about it when he gets arrested and suspended. Same for that OJ wannabe over in Boston because he's nothing but a ticking time bomb. This policy also covers sexual assault and child abuse cases. MLB put this in place because like everyone else they have seen the NFL players hit their spouses and girlfriends just as bad as they hit their opponents. Here's hoping this new policy is never used. ...In the latest issue of Sports Illustrated there is an article about the contract talks between Derek Jeter and the Yankees back in 2010 which at one point were a little tense. I don't know what purpose it served to bring up what went on back then now because Jeter's not even playing anymore but it did tell a lot. If you recall this was the very first time the Yankees showed any backbone concerning Jeter where they actually treated him like a ballplayer instead of a God. I remember reading the Yankees telling him that if they did not like their offer he was free to look around to see if he could get a better one. In a sense they called Jeter's bluff and he stayed right where he was as they gave him another three-year contract with an option for a fourth year. Looking back they should have let him walk because he was a shell of his former self even though everyone around him still viewed him as the player he was during his first few years in the league. The article stated that during the negotiations Jeter asked Brian Cashman who he would rather have playing shortstop and to Jeter's surprise Cashman told him Troy Tulowitzki and was prepared to mention some other players but Jeter heard enough. Even though Jeter got his contract extension with a nice raise he was still resentful that the Yankees were prepared to let him walk. Then again, where was he going to go? He never would have been able to take over a team the same way he made the Yankees do what he wanted for his entire career there. ...After everything I have been reading about Dave Dombrowski going to Boston the entire American League may as well not even show up for the regularly scheduled games next year because everything this guy touches turns to gold and because of that the Red Sox should win 150 games next year. They can't be expected to win them all because a handful of games will be lost on bad calls by the umpires. If this guy is so good why didn't Detroit do everything they could to keep him? And by the way good for Ben Cherington who told the Red Sox while he was packing up his stuff and walking out the door that he did not want the token title they were prepared to give him. ...It is still unclear why he did it but some nut who was wearing a very realistic looking bear costume went up to a mother bear and two cubs trying to catch fish in Alaska last week and began harassing them. The guy took his life in his own hands as he began jumping up and down and actually got within five to ten feet of the two cubs but Momma bear wasn't too concerned because the guy looked too much like her unemployed brother-in-law to pose a real threat. ...Sometimes you read what people do and you say to yourself that there is no way you can make something like that up but then you read about it and you say to yourself there you have it. A couple in Pennsylvania decided to take their pet five-foot long boa constrictor for a swim last week (hey, it's been hot here on the east coast lately!) and somehow during the course of the swim the snake slithered and swam away. What did they expect it do, swim around in a circle and come back out and towel off? The snake has not been found yet but it's only a matter of time. As soon as someone hanging around the water starts screaming uncontrollably that means the snake turned up. But not to worry because the owners of the snake describe it as "very friendly." So friendly it will squeeze the life out of you. ...Anything but that, Dept: I'm not sure what this guy was thinking here when he made this decision. Maybe he saw one too many prison movies and it had a lasting effect on him but all that's clear is that a twenty-year-old kid from Texas walked into a courtroom facing an assault charge and left a married man. Seems as this guy got into a fight with the ex-boyfriend of his girlfriend a few months back and was arrested on a charge of assault causing bodily injury. When the case went up in front of a judge he was told that he would get probation if he married his girlfriend within thirty days, write Bible verses and attend counseling. If not, he would go to jail for fifteen days. Being that he was such a worldly guy who knew what prison was like since he saw The Shawshank Redemption and Cool Hand Luke more than a few times and wanted no part of it, he quickly got married. I give the marriage six months or whenever he gets into his next fist fight, whatever comes first. ...Another week goes by, another alligator story. And as another commentator in this thread said a few weeks back you can not blame the alligator for doing what is natural to them. A woman from Orlando, Florida decided to go swimming despite being warned by her friends not to because they observed a few alligators swimming around the area recently. Since there is no sure-fire way to fix stupid, she decided to go swimming anyway and it wasn't long until one of those gators that her friends saw earlier grabbed her and pulled her under. She lost count on how many times she was pulled under but it gave her friends time to come to her rescue and pull her out of the water, but not until the gator left a lasting mark that she will carry with her for the rest of her life as she suffered a lower arm amputation below the elbow. Because of this woman's inability to heed warnings and thick-headedness, the gator was captured and killed by Florida Fish and Wildlife officials. The next time I bet she won't go swimming when she isn't advised to but then again you never know. ...It was discovered last week via DNA testing that former President Warren Harding did in fact have a love child. It seems as if there were rumors about it for decades now but the tests proved without a doubt that Harding knocked someone up while his wife was having a tea party. Harding died in 1923. Does it really matter now if he did this or not? Who gives a damn? ...A couple were married in Algeria recently and everything was going just fine for them until the morning after the wedding when the brand-new groom woke up and took his first look at his brand new wife and when he did that he got the shock of his life. It seems that this was the first time that he laid eyes on her without her makeup on and he was so surprised that he originally thought the woman was a thief. After she convinced him that she was his wife that is when he got mad. He is now suing her for £13,000 (a little over twenty thousand dollars) for fraud and “psychological suffering”. This guy is making it sound like he married someone who looked like Ashley Judd and woke up the next day with someone who looked like Ashley Olsen. The man said that he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage. Women have been known to do that. They want to look their best and there is nothing wrong with it. I'd like to see what this guy's mug looks like. Chances are he has no room to talk. ...For all the excuses to hold a contest this one really got my attention. Down in Key West, Florida they hold an Ernest Hemingway look-alike contest each year just because they can and a retired air traffic controller took home this year's award with his resemblance to a white-haired and white-bearded Hemingway. It took this guy fifteen years to win this contest but he finally did it. He said what held him back in the past was his hair still had some color to it. That's perseverance for you although I have to wonder who the hell would want to look like Ernest Hemingway anyway? ...It is apparent now that when Subway cut ties with Jared Fogle that they knew what they were doing because the turkey-and-vegetable sub guy is expected to plead guilty to charges related to child pornography very soon now and with that it will mean some jail time. Nobody confesses to child porn unless they did it. Personally I don't understand the thrill some people get out of this because there are so many beautiful women out there who are over the age of twenty-one but that's how my eyes see it. Fogle's wife is not even waiting around when the dust settles because she's already filed for divorce. It's amazing how quickly you can lose it all.
With all the upgrades we have had on this site it is too bad we couldn't increase the rating system here to give ten stars to people who really deserve it. If that were the case our man Gordo would have received ten stars with this latest mod. I don't know what roster version I am going to try out first so I grabbed all three. All I know is that like his previous work this will be well worth it. Thank you for all your hard work on these rosters over the years.
NO. GO BUY THE GAME. No one is going to upload their CD's just so you can have it. What is the matter with you? You already admitted you are a damned pirate and now you want someone to give you a copy of their game. Go to ebay and see what they have there. If they don't have a game for sale now they will soon enough.
