    Orioles Chris Davis ties the major league recorded for hitless at bats with 46?

    Orioles are on the hook for another $92 million on his contract through 2022.  They’ve already paid him $69 million since 2016.

    Joe and Evan on WFAN have been talking about him for the last few days, how it’d be in both sides interest in figuring out some sort of buyout to have him fuck off forever with some large portion of his contracted money.

    I’ve seen reference to him going into the tank as soon as MLB said he can’t use his ADHD medicine any longer.

    BILA I saw the Bruiser Brody documentary. It’s excellent. Some pretty good insight on things went down thirty years ago.

    Thanks for mentioning it.

    I’m going to geek out like a 12 year old schoolgirl when the Von Erich one comes out.

    UVA just made me the happiest basementonian in the BSMW universe. What an exhausting, wonderful ride.

    I wonder if CHB has called this squad “The Sons of Ralph Sampson” yet.  The only thing that’s kept him from it is Opening Day and the general decline in college hoops interest here since the heyday of John Calipari and the demise of “Ted Nation (We are all Basketball Heads).”

    I thought the MLB players union would only allow you to be told to ‘fuck off forever’ if you got 100% of your contracted money?

    I have to commend Fleetwood Mac for staying on brand so much that they kicked Lindsay Buckingham out of the group again in 2019.

    when I worked at the club Lindsey Buckingham played a solo show.  It was done almost in the VH1 Storytellers format, with him on a stool on stage and folding chairs where the dance floor/mosh pit would have been.  He was fantastic- when he played songs.  He spent nearly half the time almost using the audience as a surrogate shrink, talking through his emotions about  all the drama involved with being a member of  Fleetwood Mac for 30+ years. Difficult as it was, I resisted the strong urge to yell “Holiday Road!” during these many introspective moments

    The SI article about Davis from last year (when he was also historically awful, but somehow better than this year) showed that he was in real distress by all of this.  He’s a God Squadder and thinks he might be being punished.  It wouldn’t shock me if he just said fuck it and retire, or take a huge amount deferred.

    Johnny Manziel (on advice from Bootleg Barnicle?) would like you to refer to him as John Manziel going forward.

    I don’t recall, but I’d bet some in the media, called for trading up to draft him.

    Just went up to youtube to see Handsome Halfbreed Gino Hernandez call Kerry Von Erich a baboon brain.

    He was not incorrect.

    Locals all depressed that the Rockies are getting pummeled to start the season.  Their big move in the offseason was signing Daniel Murphy to play first.  He’s got some broken finger issue, then the guy at 2nd Ryan McMahon got hurt.  Now David Dahl got some oblique injury the other day.  They didn’t sign any pitchers or markedly improve anywhere.  They still run Ian Desmond out there and he’s horrible.  Yet somehow people thought they were going to magically get better.

    “Why’s the media dying locally?”

    I don’t know, maybe it’s because you dispatch camera crews for a fvcking billboard unveiling?

    Imagine if Bob Kraft’s soccer team’s primary sponsor was fined a billion dollars for laundering money for the Iranian’s?

    I remember one of the Von Erich’s won a car as part of a stipulation and Gino and Chris Adams kicked the windows in.

    The company I work for is right next to that casino. When I go visit the office we have been given the green light to go there, but if you go to the Mardi Gras down the street during a visit turn your laptop in right away.

    Don’t know if it’s policy or I respect my boss too much.

    Giannis gave Lebron the heisman over space jam because he “doesn’t like being hollywood”.  He’s moving up with a bullet in my personal mancrush rankings.
