People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. ~ Rogers Hornsby
@internet baseball fan potato friend Yeah, then I'll go out to Sepulveda... depending on where you live in Redondo.
1 day, 6 hours ago on Dodgers get Juan Nicasio from Rockies as potential bullpen piece
@internet baseball fan potato friend Oh, and look in Mar Vista & Culver City for places to live.
@internet baseball fan potato friend Vista del Mar.
@internet baseball fan potato friend Take the road that goes by the beach.
Awwww... you made me cry all over again, Dustin. (I did when I first heard the news too -- and this was even though I didn't want the Dodgers to retain him.)

2 days ago on A Reason To Maybe Be Interested in Buck Britton
@MalkinCookies Whoa, what an offer! Now if we only could get you to pay for plane fare...
@BIah Um... he was still nursing at four???
@Purple Drank Nope. Ban the messenger.
@SkepticNinja @LA_Woman @Purple Drank Goat milk?
@Purple Drank TMI
@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex I really did have a tender spot in my heart for him.
@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex He was SO HAPPY to be here after what he went through in Miami, and he gushed that he wanted to be a Dodger for life. I guess that's part of why I'm sad -- he didn't get his wish.
@Purple Drank @LA_Woman @capnsparrow @DavidBecerra Oh, right. I forgot. Thanks, Drank.
Weird. I was one of the loudest proponents of us not keeping Hanley, but I'm oddly sad.
@capnsparrow @LA_Woman @DavidBecerra Huh... so everyon's the Monocle tonight.
@DavidBecerra You're not Dang.
@capnsparrow @Bay_of_Puigs @Purple Drank And talks a lot about his BMs.
@TheConman 'Bye Hamlet. I'm sad, and I'm not.
Oh! I almost missed BARNEY's review!!! <3

Bill James: "...I ASSUMED that these were complex, nuanced, sophisticated systems. I
never really looked; I just assumed that the details were out of my
depth. But sometime in the last year I was doing some research that
relied on these WAR systems, so I took a look at them, and … they’re not
very impressive. They’re not well thought through; they haven’t made a
convincing effort to address many of the inherent difficulties that the
undertaking presents. They tend to get so far into the data, throw up
their arms and make a wild guess. I don’t know if I’m going to get the
time to do better of it, or if it will be left to others, but … we’re
not at anything like an end point here. I assumed that these systems
were a lot better than they actually are."

Ugh. Catchers named Miguel seem like bad news.
I'ma follow Capn's lead and call him Liberace. I liked Dominguez even though he made me nervous.

@TheConman @LA_Woman @BIah Oh, there's a saying: you can call me anything; just don't call me late for dinner.
(Though PUIG has stolen this for his walk-up song in Japan.)
@TheConman @LA_Woman @BIah Nahh... late for dinner.
@BIah @LA_Woman I asked what he wanted me to call him -- in front of you!
@BIah Hah! Me too!
@BIah Excellent. (And yep.)
