    JJ, there’s lots of good stuff to say about #7, and about Heyward. I’m hoping Heyward doesn’t disappoint.

    I don’t really like Jeff Francouer at all, as a player that is, as a person, I think he’s great, but as a player, uh UhuH.

    #89 Curt drops bombs on everyone. Hide the sharp objects.

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a safe and happy new year.

    Would you guys trade Arodys for Josh Vitters?

    Aw Curt. Couldn’t we wait until the New Year to dash everyone’s hopes?

    Curt Says:

    Hope springs eternal.

    I’m always hoping, just not always believing. And right now, I’m not buying what they are selling. But there is plenty of time to convince me still.

    Always the optimist.

    Last time I started a count down and it produced the next podcast, so…

    10 … 9 … 8 …

    No show?

    Curt Says:

    It’s coming. We had a long post-show conversation that pushed Steve back 20 minutes or so.

    It’s a knee slapper.

    7 … 6 … 5 …

    When I try to picture Curt slapping his knee in laughter, my brain crinkles up.

    Any dog lovers? I want to get another dog, but I don’t know what kind to get, 60 pounds or less though, any suggestions?

  13. 138
    Curt Says:

    Maybe I meant tear jerker. It was something. Rib tickler? Head scratcher?

  14. 139
    Jurrjens4NLCY Says:

    There is a huge difference between knee slapper, tear jerking, rib tickler, and head scratcher.

    Dog-love of my life was a Collie/Rottweiller. The sharp colors of a rott, but longer hair. An awesome looking dog. Gentle spirit of a collie. 45 pounds.

    Hello all. It’s coming. The post show conversation plus some computer issues have slowed me down. It’ll be about 30 minutes or so from now.

    JJ – no on Vitters. I get that we need a 3B in waiting, but I prefer *ss-kicking pitching prospects to their position player counter parts. I think you either get more for them in trades or they are of more value to you if you keep them.

    … … … …

    Bubdylan Says:

    JJ, I’d do the Vitters trade. Hot-stuff minors pitchers with questionable mound presence scare me. I read two scouting reports suggesting that about Vizcaino.

    ‘Course, he’s young…

  20. 145
    Bubdylan Says:

    Plus… Vitters is a cool name. And we could have “Vitters Critters” in the stands.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Leah, you sticking it out till midnight thirty? I HAVE to. The whiskey is gone and these stinking blue laws… it’s 45 minutes (Central Time) till I can get my suds on.

    Bubdylan Says:

    “Jason Heyward might be the best offensive prospect i’ve seen in fifteen years. His game is solid. I would trade any of the current players we have on our 25 man roster for Heyward. He’s that good.”

    – NL Scout

    (It’s an old quote, but I felt the need….)

    Bubdylan Says:

    This picture of JaHey makes me freaking giddy.

    Hey, did I just make that up? JaHey? Cuz it’s pretty good. I bet it’s been said before. Has it? JaHey: pronounced Jay-Hey. As in Say-Hey. yeah? No?

  24. 149
    Bubdylan Says:

    More of the kid. Love the presence at the plate. What a monster this kid’s gonna be. Don’t dout it.

  25. 150
    Steve Says:

    Bub – that’s all well and good, but Heyward is a top 5 prospect. Vitters is top 20. Lots of potential difference there.
