    Whether or not a supplement was illegally attained or purchased over-the-counter, if it represented a Performance Enhancer per the definition used by MLB, or if it was a well-known source of...
  2. Sticky: Sabathia's true basement is another stint on the...

    Sabathia's true basement is another stint on the DL because an additional 20-30lbs does not actually help a bad knee…

    Worst case non-DL I think he likely is a sub-0.333 record with a ~5.00 ERA and...
  3. Sticky: I just saw the blurb on Didi injuring his wrist...

    I just saw the blurb on Didi injuring his wrist and heading for X-rays and I almost had a heart-attack…:faint:

    As far as Sabathia and Betances go….

    At this point we have to accept that,...
  4. Sticky: Drew: 3 for 3, 2 RBI, 1 Run That's our opening...

    Drew: 3 for 3, 2 RBI, 1 Run

    That's our opening day 2B people....GOAT!
  5. In other words…we should all ignore that Ortiz's...

    In other words…we should all ignore that Ortiz's name showed up on that list, because clearly, he would never cheat.

    Well, I mean…he took items that people called "steroids," but those were just...
  6. Sticky: Watching Headley and Didi just vacuuming up...

    Watching Headley and Didi just vacuuming up grounders on the left-side has been awesome thus far…I am just imagining adding that defense to 200 innings of righties rolling over Tanaka's splitter and...
  7. Sticky: It is still Spring Training and too early to draw...

    It is still Spring Training and too early to draw conclusions.

    My money is on Betances regressing heavily this season.

    I understand that half of this board anointed him Mariano's heir apparent...
  8. I do not have much to contribute beyond what Ryno...

    I do not have much to contribute beyond what Ryno has already laid out.

    Given his projections I look at Olivera as a 100 wRC+ kind of hitter, at best.

    A 30-year old league-average hitter with...
  9. My thoughts exactly.

    My thoughts exactly.
  10. Sticky: Poll: Literally, no other option.

    Literally, no other option.
  11. Sticky: Yeah, not going to lie, our Out-Field is starting...

    Yeah, not going to lie, our Out-Field is starting to concern me:
    Ellsbury: 6 for 27 with no walks and only 1 XBH
    Gardner: 5 for 34 with 6 walks but only 1 XBH
    Beltran: 5 for 25 with 2 walks but...
  12. Sticky: Sabathia is an idiot. He is throwing with...

    Sabathia is an idiot.

    He is throwing with velocity again because his knee was finally allowed enough time for rehab that it built muscle strength back up.

    This idiot thinks it is because of...
  13. Wait, seriously? The Steinbrenner boys that...

    Wait, seriously?

    The Steinbrenner boys that hard up on $$ that they need Soccer fans to fill the stadium?
  14. The BRIC idea is quite interesting, but in the...

    The BRIC idea is quite interesting, but in the end it is a pipe-dream. China is dependent upon a stable international trade with the United States and the European Union, India is quite limited in...
  15. :up: More OT....why do I think getting under...

    :up:

    More OT....why do I think getting under the Luxury Threshold is not going to happen?

    Because if it truly is a major directive of Ownership that means Cashman will not be allowed to go...
  16. Actually, this is incorrect. Corporations retain...

    Actually, this is incorrect.
    Corporations retain the same responsibilities as citizens; primarily resorting to the main, respecting written law and paying taxes. Any violations thereof are treated...
  17. First, no, employment figures are not skewed and...

    First, no, employment figures are not skewed and they have not been "altered."
    The distinctions of General Pop., Civilian Non-institutionalized Population, the Civilian Labor Force, Unemployed...
  18. Also, small point about your complaint viz-a-vis...

    Also, small point about your complaint viz-a-vis the SCOTUS decision defending corporate donations to political campaigns as political speech.

    I understand where some people are coming from with...
  19. Yeah, as a professional historian I have no...

    Yeah, as a professional historian I have no interest in judging eras of Americana history by their cultural adherence to a spectrum of political ideology.

    Nor am I interested in sweeping...
  20. :rolleyes: Only now that Reagan's New Right...

    :rolleyes:

    Only now that Reagan's New Right coalition went down in flames in 2008 are my more liberal colleagues willing to let go of their personal political problems with that era and actually...
  21. Damn, that is harsh. But the issue is that...

    Damn, that is harsh.

    But the issue is that this…

    …seems to characterize the post-Boss Yankees.
  22. Well said; personally, I have not read McNamee &...

    Well said; personally, I have not read McNamee & Miller and really only know about the "Merit Myth" concept because it resonates with a particular strain of Modern-American Historiography concerned...
  23. Alright, in all seriousness now. If the team...

    Alright, in all seriousness now.

    If the team had truly wanted to get under the $189MM threshold we could have. There is no reason we could not have retained Cano and signed Tanaka while avoiding...
  24. The problem being, of course, that a rather large...

    The problem being, of course, that a rather large portion of soccer's fan base are ignorant peasants living under oppressive totalitarian regimes or "benevolent" states of national socialism.
    ...
  25. Sticky: Pirela should be the Opening Day Second-Baseman....

    Pirela should be the Opening Day Second-Baseman.

    There is literally no reason that Drew should start over him…none. :bang:
