Just so you know... I'm awesome.
I hate it when I leave and come back and then ... well, whatever is happening here.

@Purple Drank how much more would you demand from someone on an all asparagus diet?

@- Casey - How dare you question my falconry!
1 day, 17 hours ago on Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 108 – Prospects, BA list, Ethier
@- Casey - Been a busy couple of weeks.
@Chigbogu Fan #1 @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) Everything Yasiel does is awesome. I meant to imply that this TV is awesome. Therefore, you too are awesome.
Just a quick reminder that this is an actual TV that Yasiel Puig used in the mid-90s. http://instagram.com/p/x5EVq3DYd8/?modal=true
@TheConman "You are the..."
I FUCKING HATE CLIFFHANGERS!!!
@TellMyWifeISaidHello Duke Von Schamann is gone. There's no point any more.

@Tymathee Trout or Kershaw. Or Justin Turner, maybe.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Dan Adams Totally. Lots of different ways to rank guys.
@Jeremy_N @Dustin Nosler Both also much older. Gourriel is 30 and Despaigne is 28.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Dan Adams A player could have a super high ceiling, but be so far away from achieving that ceiling, Dustin put a player who's closer to ready above him. Intriguing is not the same as ranking.
A good example: Joey Cureletta's power is extremely intriguing. He's put on amazing BP displays. He has not yet put that into practice in games. Intriguing, but not rankable at this point.
@Chigbogu Fan #1 Unless we all meet up here: http://www.thelfp.com/blog/2015-softball-tournament-2/
I'll probably be at that. So will Crushinator.

@Chigbogu Fan #1 Awww, I'm busy that day. Damn, sorry to miss it.
@Disgruntled Goat @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) Yes, very much so.
@Disgruntled Goat You're more than welcome to not hold my baby any time you want.
@ABSmileBunch @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Batted Bob @Chigbogu Fan #1 My wife is a junior high science teacher. She's constantly astounded at the low bar for science knowledge among junior high science teachers. (Her school is 90% great teachers, but that other 10%... ooof)
@Chigbogu Fan #1 what's Hib?
@Chigbogu Fan #1 I hadn't needed a tetanus in 3 or 4 years, figured this was as good a time as any to update it, just for the whooping cough.
@Batted Bob @Chigbogu Fan #1 Me too.
@I Digesti @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @efb @DBrim Nope. I'm well aware of that outbreak.
@ABSmileBunch @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Batted Bob @Chigbogu Fan #1 This was the first year I've gotten the flu shot. I always thought they were mostly for at-risk populations (immunocompromised, elderly, infants) and those who have a lot of contact with those populations.
@Batted Bob @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Chigbogu Fan #1 I know. I'd like to personally punch every anti-vaxxer in Ventura County squarely in the face.
@ABSmileBunch @efb That post is very long, not quick at all. Also, a month and a half old. He's probably a totally different player by now. Please start over, Dustin.
@Batted Bob @Chigbogu Fan #1 I'm terrified to take my son out in public until he's old enough for his vaccinations.
@I Digesti @efb @DBrim Bob does not live in Moorpark. efb is saying Bob is me and I am Bob, which is false. Also, I do not live in Moorpark. I grew up in Moorpark and I work in Moorpark, but I live in Thousand Oaks.
Ask Cap'n, he has my address because I'm dumb.

@Uncultured Bastard Ugh. Can't stand Sherman.
Dustin, there's a bunch of guys in this group who moved back from your rankings last year. Is that a result of the players struggling, an overall improvement in the system, or a bit of both?

@Batted Bob @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @BlueMarvin (Not Freaking Out) @B0Jang1es @Tymathee Thanks!
6 days, 19 hours ago on 2015 Dodgers Top 100 Prospects: No. 75-51
@BlueMarvin (Not Freaking Out) @B0Jang1es @Tymathee Nope. Good call, bad rule. He stumbled landing and never recovered his balance, so even though his feet hit the ground a few different times, it was all part of the process of making the catch.
@Math Space Cat Editor @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @BirdBird I know. But they are not in business yet.
@Tymathee @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) Yeah... and about 80% of the Seahawks fans I know have no idea who Shaun Alexander is.
@Tymathee Pats. For the first time I can remember, Boston has a team in a championship game, and their fans are the LESS obnoxious. That takes some doing.

@Math Space Cat Editor @BirdBird This is how shirts should be measured. I have a thick neck and short arms. Memo to shirtmakers: That does NOT mean I have a 60" waist. I do not require a mumu. Please tailor the waist.
What's that? You offer a "fitted" version, where you DID tailor that waist? Oh... you actually cut it narrow and straight from armpits to hem. The waist now fits - good job! The chest is WAY too tight. So are the arms. You suck at making shirts.
EDIT: I CAN FIX MY TYPOS!! WOOHOO!
@Purple Drank @Lance Uppercut But... WHAT IF PUIG IS A NERD?!?

@Math Space Cat Editor @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Turner_for_Treasury @Lobo I'm kidding. Not everyone is into kids.
@Math Space Cat Editor @Turner_for_Treasury @Lobo BOOOOOOOOOO
@Bay_of_Puigs @Math Space Cat Editor Which school? What subject?
@BlueMarvin (Not Freaking Out) It does make it more likely that someone other than Drank would win something...

@Batted Bob @DBrim Cold cereal is the far superior form of cereal.
@MajorPuigBaseball @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) not sure they will, though. he's going to be looking for his last contract. they might not go that long.
1 week ago on Enjoy Your Last Year of Zack Greinke, Probably
Reminder: There's still a chance Greinke does not opt out. It involves Tommy John surgery, and it's the exact opposite of what we want.
Edit: I can edit. why can I edit?

@DINGERS! yep. 1987 was a weird time.

For those who missed it last night. Hat tip to Mike for sending the card template.
@DBrim you flew into SB airport?
@Math Space Cat @Disgruntled Goat It's Drank's thing. Stop stealing his style.
