Friday Roundup: The “End is Nigh” Edition


Or, possibly, Ryan Dempster said something funny.

OH MY GOD, THE CUBS MUST HAVE TRADED SORIANO AND NOT HAD TO EAT A BUNCH OF MONEY!!!

So, I have plans on actually posting some things on this dusty heap of a place. Year-end things. I’m a sucker for those year-end lists, and I figure I should actually write some. It might even happen before the Mayans kill us all, or whatever I’m hearing these days. And, hell, if it sucks, we all might be dead at this point next week, anyhow. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Your tips are as appreciated as the end of times.

    Thank god the Cubs lost out on that Anibal Sanchez signing. $80 mil for a guy with a 48-51 record? No need to give that much money to a guy who had never proven he can win games.

      I agree – he wasn’t that great with the Tigers last year. This was a good “no contract”

      Oh my god. Seriously?

    For the Cubs’ season finale, tickets were going for 19 cents on StubHub.

    “I got the impression the Cubs were not happy with that,” Lehrman said.

    Haha! Maybe if they won a few games, those tickets wouldn’t sell for 19 cents – I don’t see how they can be upset about that, and I would guess that EVERY team who wasn’t going into the playoffs had tix selling for under $5 for the last few weeks.

    OK, I just reached “Baseball Card Vandals” – gad! That is stupid!! I’m laughing my ass off.

    Glad I’m not the only one who that Crash sucked, especially after hearing everyone rave about it like it was some kind of ingenius film dealing with race. It was about as subtle as a fucking Spike Lee movie.
    Unless they’re playing the Cubs, Yankees, or Red Sox, you can see the Rays pretty much every day for less than $5, even when they’re in contention. Because Florida is a shitty, shitty state for backing pro sports.
