    Now this was a dumb article:
    Kintzler and Duensing, yes. The rest? No. And why would we even want Harper? To keep KB around when he goes to FA?

    I get irrationally angry on the constant JHey trade talk, let alone the rest of that tragic fantasy written above. NO PLAYER is worth what BH and MM are asking (even JHey, lol) in a flat out deal. Pretty sure some creative terms will be how a contract plays out for either one and then they better be put in bubble wrap :rolleyes1

    We already have better outfielders than BH is any day. And they can hit most of the time, too. Just need to work on that.

    Excellent response. Love it. I wonder how long it takes him to grow back his Diva flip hair? He cut it off after the perm.

    I always say the way I know KB isn't perfect is by his friendship w/BH. Smarmy on my part, I know...but of makes ya wonder

    I look at it this way. It started when they were kids. KB's dad also taught Diva how to bat. And their wives like each other.

    Wow!!! Have an awesome NYE celebration!!! Jealous, though I'll be down there at the end of Jan! Just think.....You're missing out on cold rain, freezing rain, and later, snow! Enjoy your holiday!

    Too bad you didn't get an invitation to the the Rizzo celebration!

    My invitation must have gotten lost in the mail. Just two hours away. It was in the high 80's and sunny today in my pool.

    I was in line for Soarin’ behind a family who all had Walgreens ... I mean Washington hats on. I had my Cubs WS hat on. I started a conversation with them which went downhill fast.

    Me: “I bet you guys are glad Dusty’s gone!”

    Her: “I love Dusty. I’m a big Dusty supporter. He got us into the playoffs many times.”

    Me: “He did that for the Cubs too. He’s really good at gettin teams in the playofffs but can’t switch gears once he’s there.”

    Her Son: “Our pitching staff got used too much ...”

    Me: “That’s Dusty! He pitches guys arms off!”

    Her: “I still love Dusty!”

    Okay ...

    Me: “Thanks a lot for Daniel Murphy. We were hoping that he would play like he did for you but he didn’t.”

    Her: “I love Murphy. He was great!”

    Me: “Not for the Cubs.”

    Her: “He played great for Dusty!”

    Me: “He played well for the Mets too.”

    Her: “He played better for Dusty! So did Harper!”

    Okay ...

    Me: “Have you been on Soarin’ for a while? Make sure you pick section B!”

    KB and Mrs KB and Diva and Mrs Diva spent NYE together in Las Vegas. Wonder if Diva was invited to Rizzo's wedding?
