    Schefter says still not conclusive High is DUN for the year and he is going to see Dr Andrews.

    Hightower should talk to Ray Lewis or Terrell Suggs. He’ll be back before Thanksgiving.

    Is there still enough time to IR Hightower and have him come back this year? It seems like McCellin is going to come back that would leave 1 more option. I assume that he’d have to come back before the regular season ended. Probably wishful thinking anyway.

    Can Wallach catch a horrible disease soon? Annoying, pathetic, useless.

    He’s basically Zerowalls.

    Another guy I wish death on. Seems to be a pattern.

    Yes. They’re all still alive. Your powers are not where we want them to be.

    Wherever the power lies, it must be used for the greatest good (i.e., death to Fatty).  :pk:

    I know one team found that he had, at that point — and this is seven months ago now — had a 55 percent torn pec then.

    Not quite 56, a hair more than 54…

    Al’s the best – he didn’t want to burden anyone with that information at the time…..

    Reading Forsbergs article from today. I love that Stevens voicemail still has Doc Rivers’ outgoing message on it :lol:

    Hi FWL Looks like I missed a good game last night. https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

    The game was awesome. The two best teams in baseball + all kinds of weird shit. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    So happy not to be listening to the announcers drone on about the Yankees (who btw just fired Girardi) and their dynasty and class and history blah blah.  :puke:

    Bank of America is an official sponsor of MLB. Prospect Productions http://prospectproduction.com/about/ does some work for MLB networks. It really is a small world Danny.

    “Annie and I were eating a couple of burgers at the rest stop when this scraggly hippie-looking guy sidles over. I bunch my left fist up (pretty much wrecked the right one helping Globe Great Willie McD in a scrape a decade or so ago) thinking I might have to do my White Knight thing again. “But instead, they give each other a hug. Annie introduces him as Kenny Burns, and the guy looked like he may have been a grunt in the Civil War, to my eyes. He’s saying to Annie, “Thank you, thank you for Bank of America’s support” about some new talkie he’s just started. “Annie gives him a grin and wrinkles her nose like that gal on ‘Bewitched’ and says, ‘This is my husband, Mike Barnicle. He’s a big fan!’ “Just as I was about to signal Annie that I thought that Civil War thing wasn’t half as much fun as any episode of ‘Mannix,’ she continues, ‘… of baseball.’ Next thing you know, I’m on camera for Kennie B, happy to share my experience and perspective. What can I say? The man can recognize talent. It was all nice and clean, like a Yaz double off the Monster. I hate it when I have to open doors for Annie, but it’s what a man’s man has to do.”

    😆 I admit that I watched Burns’ opus on the Vietnam War only until 1969, but I was stunned that he didn’t interview Vietnam-veteran-and-everyman Mike Barnicle and get his cogent remembrances and insights. Or maybe he did interview the Plagiarist and all the footage was left on the editing room floor.

    If that happened…..I would hire Rick Monday to use his head for batting practice.

    edit: Last Days of Vietnam is good watch. Really shows the struggle our troops had leaving.

    I don’t know what Doc would say on his VM greeting but I’d bet a sawbuck it starts with a hoarse “Hey!  listen up!”

    I don’t see any decent list yet on who Girardi’s replacement might be.

    I suspect that, behind the scenes, Fox Sports is lobbying Rob Manfred to allow Captain Calm Eyes to simultaneously serve as co-owner of the Marlins and manager of the Yankees.  “If anyone can do it, a man who uniquely possesses both infinite integrity and capacity like Jeter can!”

    :lol:

    Not a Yankee fan by any stretch but wasn’t this supposed to be a “rebuilding year” for them? You fire the guy for overachieving but not overachieving enough?

    Either way, F-em.

    That endorsement would be gayer than Jm J. Bullock.

    Is Jm J Bullock still the go to for the highest gay-osity?  I would suggest that Milo character might be the gay gold standard for a new generation. Or possibly Mario Cantone for a transitional period.

    If the complaint about Girardi is that he’s too analytical, then Dusty’s the perfect choice.  Wasn’t he the “walks clog up the bases” guy?

    Yeah, I think Dusty came up with that line all on his own. You really couldn’t write a better one.

    Girardi didn’t use his gut instincts enough I guess.  :rollseyes: As Brian LA pointed out, this was supposed to be a rebuilding year and they went all the way to the ALCS, yet they can the guy for not managing 1970s style.
