I like baseball and puns. I used to like programming, but I don't like that anymore. I eat a lot of cheez its.
@DINGERS! which... we won't have that many of.

@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @DKD I think they originally calculated a win at 10 runs. But as they improved the model, it might have changed.

@DKD it became WAR.
@peetato assgraphs says we will have a strong defensive infield.

@isanz33 @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Disgruntled Goat @just Paul I feel like beyond most team's top 10 prospects, there's not really all that much to be excited about. You might be able to save 4 mil on a utility guy, but for the Dodgers, that's not that big a deal.

@peetato dude, PECOTA has us at 94th.

@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @Disgruntled Goat @just Paul Probably didn't need a fancy pants Harvard grad to tell us that, but thanks for passing it along.
@Disgruntled Goat the role of the serious answerer is like a middle reliever. If it's done correctly, it takes a long time for anyone to notice.

@Disgruntled Goat there, feel better?

@Turner_for_Treasury @just Paul @Purple Drank I mean, between rookie ball and Triple A, our farm will accumulate 97 wins?

@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @just Paul If I weren't unemployed, I'd probably see it this way.
@Purple Drank @just Paul total?

@Omer (beercoozie) @itsthatguywhodoesstuff @Lobo figured someone should give you a serious answer.

@Pimparoo (The Ghetto Wilt Chamberlain) Grant pointed out on the day that Kersh no-hit the Rockies that they had the number 2 pick in that draft, but thought Greg Reynolds would help them win sooner.

@Pimparoo (The Ghetto Wilt Chamberlain) well, we probably don't get Kershaw then. Revisionist history is fun and awful.
@DKD I was so sad when they took down the fuckyeahtedlilly tumblr.
@Casey the DeliMan @just Paul @Purple Drank These past few months have been a shock for me, seeing my uncle do time for DUI and evading. Been an alcoholic for 30 years, but now it's finally tearing apart his life. Definitely makes me think twice.
@Casey the DeliMan @just Paul @Purple Drank
if that's a serious question, it stands for electronic dance music.
Otherwise, something something clever joke something.
@BehindOrangeLines @just Paul @Pimparoo (The Ghetto Wilt Chamberlain) I was not aware of that particular joke, but there's no shortage of "Wilt had a lot of sex" jokes out there.
@Purple Drank @just Paul Yeah, drugs are fine if you're not an idiot about it. I just don't trust myself to not be because addiction runs in my family, and the six months I spent as a pothead made me realize I'm more prone to it than I thought.
I do get the appeal though, as a natural introvert who becomes very friendly and outgoing while drunk, I can see where that kind of environment would be eye-opening.
@Pimparoo (The Ghetto Wilt Chamberlain) Fun fact, my dad claims to have seen Wilt Chamberlain leaving a woman's house in the morning while driving in East LA .
@Purple Drank @just Paul I can see the appeal, but I know that if I ever do the kinds of drugs that make EDM shows enjoyable, I will continue to do said drugs until I start selling my blood on the black market to buy them, so it's best I just stay away.
@Purple Drank @just Paul I think having AC/DC headline the festival is an absolute joke. Also, I don't know much about EDM, except I kind of like some of it but definitely not most of it, and I would feel ripped off if I went to a music festival to watch a dude press buttons on a computer and jump up and down with headphones.
@Technogit I support anything that will lead to more hilarious Ryu commercials.
@Purple Drank I read it last week and couldn't really find a whole lot to disagree with, except he didn't say anything about Brand New, which is pretty much the only band there I would pay to see separately.
@Cochito Commish @just Paul @Lobo I'm open minded as he-e-e--elllll, I think you're pretty good lookin'.

@Lobo @just Paul Also, if we're only doing main characters, I think Leslie is my favorite. Peripherals, Jean Ralphio hands down.
@Lobo @just Paul All accountants have a little Ben in them, but most accountants don't have hair lines that nice.
@Lobo @just Paul I have this constant battle with myself to decide who my favorite character is, and just when I think I have it settled, the show will make me reconsider again.
@Lobo @just Paul The show keeps getting better IMO.
@Lobo @just Paul yes. 4 episodes. I'd get on in quick though, before they make it disappear.
@Lobo I came here to say that the new season of Parks and Rec is making me laugh and almost cry, and I don't know which one is going to win at the end.
"No one understands the value of top-notch pitching more than the leadership group in Arizona that includes chief baseball officer Tony La Russa, general manager Dave Stewart and pitching guru Dave Duncan. Stewart has made his pitch to Shields and explained why his team is a good fit for him, as he can lead a promising young staff."
I count.... 4 lies. Did I miss any?

@Jeremy_N @nsxtasy I take comfort in knowing that by 2018 he'll have probably already built his HOF case.

@nsxtasy @Jeremy_N I like the new front office too. I believe their capable of putting a winning team on the field. What I'm waiting to see is how they'll do it without an insane payroll, which is supposedly the plan.
@TheConman @Disgruntled Goat @just Paul this much is a given. My question was really more like... if he puts up a 4/4+ FIP/ERA season.
Does Greinke still opt out if he has an unusually down year?
@nerdtato @MajorPuigBaseball wasn't Rasmus a top 5 prospect at one time?

@Math Space Cat @just Paul how's the maths coming along? You in a PhD program yet?
@Jeremy_N He's really taking this "I won't be a distraction" thing seriously.
From the old wordpress format of MSTI to the site redesign to the new and improved DD, some things have changed, but the quality content keeps coming.
