@BDF by just about any standard she is a milf. she may be a moron, but you don't go to tblop for intelligence.
@ Dillon what's the point of minecraft? i mean that seriously, what's the object of the game.
5 days, 17 hours ago on Pens have Performance Issues, it’s not uncommon. One out of five Teams….
I'm happy to see Martin got what I wouldn't want the pirates to give him. It's a very very small consolation prize.

@MalkinCookies @NHD its like the hit on emmanuel sanders yesterday. just a picture perfect legal hit that wrecks shit.
6 days, 22 hours ago on KONP Baby Pool Dates II
@NHD its ok, once every 3 or 4 games letang makes me not regret his contract.
@NHD @MrsMalkinsBorscht @shooter` i think you are too cynical about AJ signing. I actually think he's there for a veteran mound presence and a dependable 3/4. I still have hope that Liriano comes back. If you can roll Cole, Liriano and AJ as 1-3 that's a very very solid 1-3. then you fill in 4 and 5 with the usual suspects and maybe a high upside reclamation project.
Also, I have hope that Glasnow and Taillon see time at the Majors in the second half. Burnett helps as a veteran presence for them.
@shooter` @MrsMalkinsBorscht intersting. I'm in erie quite often for work, but that's only the ugly part of erie.

@NHD @shooter` @MrsMalkinsBorscht that's what i'm looking for. we own a beach house in OBX, NC but that takes 9 hours so i only go once a year. looking for an alternative for a long weekend. in the summer.
@shooter` on a serious note, is lake erie fun during the summer? do they have fun shit to do?
@shooter` riding a bike or living in erie?
@NHD @shooter` russell martin shoe drops today.
@PezDOY @NHD dead animal carcass?
@JenBroflovski @NHD @Hoss throw those scented ornaments on the christmas tree to give it an extra kick.
@PezDOY @Hoss I bought it for franchise, but only play road to the show. Love giving the buccos the franchise short stop they deserve.
@Kinguin @bgw @JenBroflovski i'm not an expert on big kitties, but there is definitely a population in the state. I say that knowing big kitty could describe a whole number of types and may not represent the big kitty in the picture. also, big kitty can be wide vagina so have fun with that.
@Hoss my wife did damage at yankee candle. the worst part is the fact that all weekend i was constantly tricked into thinking there were cookies baking.

1 week, 2 days ago on MAF Contract
@orby frankly, i would like to see a new extension that takes cutch to his 33 season. Essentially, two more years. At that point, i would assume the return is going to start to diminish and he will be worth his value in name alone. centerfielders built on speed and athleticism with good but not great power do not age well.
1 week, 3 days ago on MAF Contract
@BDF @orby Nats aren't a good comparison. Their payroll last year was $135,000,000 and there isn't a rational person who think the pirates could sustain a $135,000,000 payroll.
@Nutting Hates Diehard fans $125 million payroll????????????? at least based on 2014, that puts us top 10 in MLB. i wouldn't argue with $100 but $125 is stupid and if that is your expectation for what would be a convincing payroll, then your disappointment is completely self inflicted.
I would sign martin also, but lets not forget that even at $15 million a year, he would be the second highest paid catcher in MLB, even higher than Yadier. yadier is light years better than Martin. there comes a point when the money gets stupid enough that the pirates are justified. I personally would go to about $15 per season. I wouldn't begrudge the pirates one bit for tapping out above $15. If i hear he signs for something very reasonable, then ok. bitch and moan.
1 week, 4 days ago on MAF Contract
@Nutting Hates Diehard fans @bgw i understand the frustration, but when you combine it with some kind of ludicrous love for Evan Gattis as a catcher, it looks like ramblings of a mad man. Gattis is being shopped to AL teams as a DH who could fill in at catcher if needed. The braves have already decided not to let him catch. I'm not sure how much pitchers will care about a bad defensive catcher who can hit with some power. You want to move Gattis to first, great. That doesn't solve our catching issue and leaves poor poor pedro without any potential position.
You're desire to hate every decision pirates management makes is somewhat understandable but tired. Do i want them to sign Martin, yeah. Liriano too. I want them to raise their salary expenditure. But they have got it right two years in a row and the team is actually trending in the right direction. You were angry about free agency last year, and they got it right. you were angry they didn't make significant moves at the deadline, and they got it right.
Giants only traded for peavy and he was garbage in October. Royals traded for willingham and he had like 5 at bats. I love the virtual GM stuff as much as anyone, but come up with something better than Evan Gattis as our new catching solution. if anything that will scare pitchers away.
@Nutting Hates Diehard fans @bgw i was waiting for your meltdown.
@BDF @MrsMalkinsBorscht @JenBroflovski i think i underestimated the US' love of awful music.

@BDF @JenBroflovski i have no idea whatsoever and no justification for this statement, but i think you underestimate the US' stupidity and ability to make Kim K rich. I would imagine Kanye worth more but would expect Kim closer than we realize.

i think the washington generals could beat the sabres
@NHD good thing tanger earning that 7 million a year against buffalol
auburn just shit all over themselves.
@shooter` i think i'm gonna read an NHL history book.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on NHL Expansion throughout the Years
@shooter` i already read it, i thought it was cool to read about the lack of line changes and that we were the first.
i'll be honest, i didn't realize pittsburgh had an NHL team in the 30's. I knew there was a team back then but didn't realize it was in the NHL.
@bgw don't boss me. you're not my mom.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Gameday 12 – Pens at Jets
@NHD @MrsMalkinsBorscht yeah, that's clearly what was different last night, but you need them games to see what needs fixed and then fixed it. i'm not sure a regime change can strap a pair onto the players, but i saw a team get beat up last night physically, on the road, and still win. Jets aren't a cup contender but they aren't buffalo either. I see this overall more as a positive than anything.
last year when 87, 71, and the other "core" didn't show up, we were fucked regardless of who the opponent was. We saw that happen last night and still come away with a win. that's a step in the right direction. plus MAF looked good even after getting his dolla dolla billz
starting to give up on this letang fresh start. He's playing like a decent defenseman but definitely not $7 million worth. His turnovers at the blue line on the power play are really frustrating. it led to a goal on tuesday and he did it again last night. Its not as bad as last year, but he needs to get his shit together.
really happy with the win last night. this game really stood out as something we haven't seen yet this year. Our power play was shit, but we still pulled it out due to some bottom six scoring. Not sure i could point to a close game all year last year where our bottom six actually made a difference.
@Lionel Hutz @MrsMalkinsBorscht @SaintMarty i'm not pro or anti trade martin. but i just don't know what you'll get in return. with his limited/no trade clause he gets a say in his destination. With that destination likely being a competitor, are they really going to give up a legitimate top 6 forward for martin? I would think a competitor would rather give young talent to help immediate needs. So in that sense, i'm doubtful of martin's return.
On the other side, anyone would take some of our young D regardless of situation.
I'm glad we made the neal trade, but looking at it, i would have rather moved martin for hornqvist than neal for hornqvist. the cap net effect would be the same and we wouldn't be continuing the never ending search for a top 6 winger.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Pens Go Buffalo Hunting
@SaintMarty @MrsMalkinsBorscht i'm comfortable also, but the other side of the argument is couldn't you just find significantly cheaper options with just a marginal decrease in value. I do think that possibility is out there, but I'd prefer to just work with the known quantity.
@SaintMarty @Lionel Hutz i'm going to use goes in dry sometime in the near future. thanks.
@SaintMarty i like the deal, but just because someone else would have paid more doesn't make the price paid any better. Its the same point i made with Letang's awful deal. Letang easily could have got more in free agency, but that doesn't make our deal any better because 7 million dollar defensemen shouldn't turn the puck over a the blue line on the power play leading to a short handed goal that gets the other team back in the game.
@orby i think you nailed why some people hate this deal. The deal itself is understandable and doesn't look like an overpayment in term or price based on other goalies around the league. however, if you believe that the guy is a headcase who can't win in the playoffs, even a 1 million cap hit is an overpayment.
I like the deal but I fall into the camp that the past playoffs failures are the result of poor coaching, systems and defense rather than MAF being a headcase. There were certainly some awful goals that I can't defend. But i think as a whole everyone else around MAF failed more than MAF actually did.
@Kinguin @MrsMalkinsBorscht he's like grandpa in simpsons. its easier to just agree and acquiesce than argue and fight.
@Lionel Hutz @MrsMalkinsBorscht the defense and the goaltending results got worse each year that bylsma moved further from Therrien's defensive system. based on what i've seen in a small sample, i think its obvious where the problem. not the players, it was the system. with that said, this shit don't matter til April.
@KONP his cap hit next year is right in line with where he stands in the NHL, maybe a very very slight bargain.
I like the deal for MAF. I've always had trouble blaming him when i was so critical of bylsma and his defense. At the same time, his meltdowns haven't been all on the D in front of him.
With that said, he will make borderline top ten goaltender money based on cap value and that is what he is. he's a top ten goalie in the league that can steal the show when on, but clearly shit the bed when not. I didn't think he would take such a small pay increase based on cap number. I'm happy. In Shero We Trust. whoops.
@stapler if only i could remember anything about the game. I'd appreciate it if you could get your free content that i do not contribute to in any way done faster.
political affiliations aside, the butthurt on both sides is sooooooo fun to watch.
