Agreed. We did very well, only lost game 0-1 because of defense that we played. That was the difference in the players. I still have 4 months to think about it.



Can they start selling penguins?



When CJ complains in posts like this, I hear him say "poor me. I live in a city with several pro sports teams, warm weather, ocean, and bikinis". Pardon me if I don't cry for you Argentina.
They can sell penguins, but they are really hard to decorate and tend to move around a lot. I would hate to have to move the presents and decorations every time my penguin decided not to stand in the bay window.

Wow, Norm said he was on your side CJ since he was firing up the trailer and living at your house, but I don't know. Seems he is falling in behind me lately. Sorry nemie, but he does have a point.

We cut our own too, but that is what a 9-10 foot Concolor fir costs in our area. Good news is that I spoke with our neighbor last night and they are going to water it for us while we are gone.

I think there is a place that does lessons during fall and winter months.
Both my kids love swimming. Took lessons at an early age, but we have been so busy that swim team was dropped this winter(had to commit to 4 days a week). Hoping we can get back into it in the spring. DD does swim for the country club team over the summer. It is the best exercise you can do, it really works all of your muscle groups at once. I say if you have the time then do it!

As for what did you get... if we only have garbage, what else can we offer? We gave you the best of the pile...

I thought of you when I heard the news and knew you would be happy. Hope they all have great seasons next year.

This land of warm weather, ocean, and bikinis paid $515+ million of taxpayer money to give this clown a park so he could field a competitive team. And I don’t want to hear the argument that I can see other teams’ major leaguers play even if it is against our AAA or AA caliber team. Especially when many of those major leaguers previously wore a Marlins’ uniform. Not today please.

They suckered me in with that again this year. The sad thing is that I love baseball. They ripped my heart out three times now. I also thought the culture had changed so I signed up. Opening day was great and June was fun. Then by July it was over. Was a season ticket holder from day one until they broke them up the first time. Did not go to another game until this year. It is going to take a lot to get me to come back.

WOW... that all happened last night? I was passed out on the couch at 9:30.

I'd love to come to a AA game if you get tickets this year!

I'm still pulling my trailer down to CJ's yard because he has no penguins, warm weather, oceans, ...

Put both of mine in swim lessons. DW almost drowned as a child in the lake because she didn't know how to swim. My oldest did the swim team last year. She didn't like competing, so we didn't do it again, but now, she is a really strong swimmer. Those swimming skills will be great when CJ puts a pool in by our trailer in the front yard. How's construction going?

We don't have that much $ in KY. All our revenues go to pay salaries for Calipari & Pitino.

Welcome back. I'm sorry there wasn't a meet up too, but truthfully, I was running around like a chicken with it's head cut off all weekend too.

I was going to ask you if you felt the explosion. I take it that you did...

The really scary part about it is that they still haven't figured out what it was.

Yeah... really doesn't change my opinion at all.

The real question is how many years it will be before the NCAA strips their championship.

Toronto, if you win the pennant next year, you can thank us. If history is any indication they will all be playing in next year's All Star Game. Ask Miguel Cabrera. This stinks.

Thank Jeffrey Loria; he is a great owner, just ask the Expos.

I hear you, that was more my editorial on my hatred for artificial christmas trees.

Wow. Isn't this the 3rd tie Jeffrey Loria has had a salary dump like this? This guy needs to go. I'd be furious if I was a Marlins fan.

You were already behind the Jays, final standings

New York Yankees 95 67 .586

Baltimore Orioles 93 69 .574

Tampa Bay Rays 90 72 .556

Toronto Blue Jays 73 89 .451

Boston Red Sox 69 93 .426
