Anne – Yesterday was one of our biggest days ever. A combination of listeners asking for follows and a lot of retweets of the Infield Fly hat picture resulted in a gain of 59 followers to bring us to 1,899.
Here is a prop bet that could be interesting. Which Brave will be the first one to call a “players-only” meeting? Assuming, of course, we have one. Obviously it used to be Chipper . . . who grabs that responsibility?
@44, I do too. I don’t buy his dad saying he saw the doctor, not Gio, seeking help to lose weight, and it was he, not Gio, that spent $1,000 on “weight loss” drugs. Doesn’t really explain why Gio Gonzalez’s name would be in the doctor’s notes, unless they share the same name. I honestly don’t know if they do.
Leah, if you really don’t know, the story goes that any white person using the epithet “well-spoken” for a black person must mean “I was surprised that black guy could speak well.” It’s a really tiring debate that I can see both sides of, and have no desire to crank up here, but rather than let it linger, there it is.
Or maybe you knew that and I totally misread what’s going on here.
I assume Leah meant no harm in her comments. Just honest opininon on a professional athlete. I think her posting history speaks for itself. Not saying you’re calling her out, Bub, just saying others shouldn’t try to call her out.
@48 I know you’re not calling me out. Never thought about it once. Never do. Never crosses my playing field. Just thought the kid didn’t sound like an idiot as some athlete tend to. For example, a very nice and i might add a very pale Josh Hamilton. The kid used full sentences, didn’t mumble and had a good sense of humor even though he was clearly a bit nervous. With good reason.
