    A new thread; a late start; 4 more boys out of the cave.

    I just want the record to reflect that I tried to start a thread around 10:30, but it didn’t pass the quality standards of WordPress.

    Today is Joe Sullivan’s last day at the Globe. That’s gotta be worth at least 2 kids outta that cave.

    Shank’s magnificent.

    “Try to find good baseball conversation. Spend an hour alternating between the Sports Hub and WEEI and take note of how little baseball conversation you hear. Unless there’s yet another caller bashing David Price, the Sox don’t generate much sports talk these days.”  DON’T YOU DO A PAID RADIO GIG ONCE A WEEK?  FIX IT.

    Suddenly, he’s Elon Musk

    “Baseball has become the sanctuary of senior citizens. Hardcore baseball fans are the same people who have land lines in their home and still read daily newspapers. Anybody seen my Sporting News?”

    Yeah, everybody does it.

    “A 10-strikeout effort by a starting pitcher is no longer a big deal.”

    Who doesn’t enjoy people willing themselves invisible stories?

    “There’s not a Wade Boggs or Oil Can Boyd in the bunch.”

    Finally, Dan reveals his motivation at the end, they are making his job harder.

    “It’s as if they are trained to drain the color from their commentary.”

    Meanwhile, LJ had a very productive weekend.

    We should offer free memberships to all the kids trapped in the cave. It would help get us more posts. Those kids got nothing but time.

    I’m certainly not up to date on David Price news so maybe I’m missing the genius of that cartoon. Most likely I’m not.

    The idea of the weekly thread as opposed to the daily thread may sadly have become a reality.

    Without reading seems Shank misses low hanging fruit like Margo Adams and late returns on videotapes.

    Today is Joe Sullivan’s last day at the Globe. That’s news that should be on par with 2 more kids making it out of that cave.

    Shank just misses the mid 80s, when he was a relatively young man acting like and old man, rather than just an old man.  Does he still do his 1 mile run?  I’d love to see him and fatty race a mile. :lol:   :ohmy:

    Dan doesn’t like baseball. He just likes people (especially his boss) to think he likes baseball.

    #126514

    Forget baseball. Dan doesn’t like sports.

    I kinda like Larry’s David Price cartoon.

    Isn’t Shank the best. He’s made a name for himself basically writing what the talk shows say all day. Maybe once a year he writes a positive column but most of the time he’s shitting on everyone.

    He loves negativity just like everyone on the radio. Only the fans like winning.

    Today is Joe Sullivan’s last day at the Globe. That news should bring the rest of those kids out of that cave in a hurry.

    It seems like half of Shank’s columns now are now the Picked Up Pieces bit. I will have to see if they are still doing Dan Shaughnessy Watch.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    I’d bet on Shank. As loathsome as he is, I find it easier to believe that he’s actually running than PK.

    Of course, I’d be rooting for

    I kinda like Larry’s David Price cartoon.

    The idea in general might be fine but as usual the execution is all fucked up.  No wonder he can’t find home plate, one part of home plate is in a cul-de-sac the other is blocking traffic and then on a greenbelt.  He’s holding the phone in his glove hand.  And that’s the best caption he could come up with – Property of David Price.

    And the route to home comes from behind the plate.

    Doesn’t look much like NY or KC either.

    “The Can’s Film Festival” it might be the only thing he ever wrote that made me smirk.

    Re. Shank, every time I drive through the Ted Williams Tunnel, I think: “Huh. No one even named a public shithouse after ‘Colonel’ Dave Egan.”

    You guys are too literal.  Larry operates on a higher plane.  Like God wants.
