Scotch Man, and how about the undefeated Reading Phils??

Who says our minor league system is bereft of talent?:
Iron Pigs: 4-2
R'Phils: 5-0
Threshers: 2-2

thanks clout. i did know it was only temporary.

Scotch Man - OUCH!


....and the Post of the Day!

Here's what the Ozzie flap means over at the inestimable Guardian:

'Well god forbid he should have an opinion.... Once again the world see's the limits on American "free speech". Like any cheap junta or banana republic dictatorship the US gives it's subjects the right to say what the government wants them to say and nothing more...... this poor guy had the impression he could speak his mind, boy has he learned his lesson....lol'

As far as 300 hitters I remember Mauch saying about Callison after first half of season where Callison was hitting lower that it will be fun watching him this second half getting back to 300.

so, is it wigginton or wiggington? i seldom get to see the back of his uni since he is rarely on base.

Bake: Further illustrating the complete ignorance European nations have RE: the U.S. Constitution, & the vast difference between the dictates of the federal government & the right of private enterprise to control their brand.

buillt, after yesterday's AB, the name is Wiffinton.

Bake: Old, and true, saying: Freedom of the press applies only to those who own one.

If you don't own one, your comments are subject to approval by your employer. If you don't have an employer, then you're good to go.

well played, kuvasz. well played.

Just to be clear, my use of the phrase "inestimable Guardian" was, well, less than straightforward.

It's like the Hank Williams Jr (III?) statement about the President. Sure, he's welcome to speak his mind, but he's gotta be aware there are repercussions. He was thus fired by MNF.

GTown, Europeans ought to be the last people on earth lecturing Americans of free speech.

True story:


Several years ago a French wine magazine, a publication with a small circulation and revenues of about 2-300,000 Euros, wrote an editorial where the editor expressed an opinion on Beaujolais Nouveau and the hype surrounding its' annual release. The editorial called the new wine "vin de merde" which in literal translation from French means "wine of sh8t".

The publication was sued in court by the Beaujolais producers association and lost, for simply expressing an opinion that the wine was overhyped and not very good.

I was never able to find out the disposition of the case, but the amount of the judgement would have put the publication out of business.

For reviewing wine.

Yep, European style free speech.

AAMOF, authors can be criminally prosecuted in many European contries by simply writing something "offensive" to another group.

Castro, Horse Jockey, Guillen, Cuban Cigars, DR Cigars, Wiggington, Horse Jockey, Cholly Manuel and Horse Jockeys, speed reading...

BedBeard, good example. ABC was completely within it's rights to fire Williams for damaging it's brand among a segment of its' viewers.

Ozzie and Hank: An All-American family of dum fux.

In Britain, you go to jail for using a lower than accepted estimate on the number of people killed in WW2. They are that insane.

Here's a little pick-me-up for the whiners:


"As of Tuesday, seven teams have a lower batting average than the Phils’ .198. Last April, the Padres held the lowest mark, at .233."

MIA - Polanco's bat, presumed dead

Desperately need him to start hitting especially if he is going to be in the #2 hole most nights.

AWH:

Yes, "truth" is not a defense against libel in British courts.

You should never use French examples as being emblematic. This is the country that ruled in favor of the maker of an inferior product (maps) being sold against a company producing better maps (Google) and giving them away for free.

MG, Jimmy at .250/.250/.250 hasn't providing much relief either.

But as I posted above, anyone who bases an opinion on a sample size of 17 PA should be ashamed of themselves.

That, or criminally prosecuted for gross stupidity.

Should say: ..."provided" much relief...

Buddy, the hypocricy lies in the fact that in Europe French examples ARE emblematic. Similar examples have occured in other European countries as well.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...I want to clarify something here. I just read through a couple hours of comments and some of them directed at my opinion are very troubling so I need to take a quick moment and make something crystal clear:

I have not and do not support nor like David Eckstein. That is a vicious slander and I deny it with all of my spirit.

NEPP, thanks for clearing that up. We were just getting ready to convene and determine whether or not you needed a 5 game BL ban for supporting Eckstein. We'll note your vehement disagreement here.

awh: Under American defamation law, truth is an absolute defense in any lawsuit for libel or slander. If that principle applied in Europe, then the publication which referred to Beaujolais Nouveau as "vin de merde" would have absolutely nothing to worry about.

awh: Do we know how old those Dominican cigars really are?

goody, I have no idea how old they are. I do have some in my humidor that I've been aging for about 4 years. Should be ready by Autumn.

From FanNation:

08:15 AM ET 04.10 | Much of what ails the Phillies can be summed up thusly: Roy Halladay ranks second on the team in batting average. This may be the greatest danger of losing [Cole Hamels], the sense of a team in decline. Some reports speculate that he wants 7 years in his next contract, but he very clearly wants to win, too. He cares far more about that than the color or design of any uniform or the climate of any town, and that includes those located in Southern California. You want to be scared, here's a better way to scare you: His father is from South Boston. ... Earlier this spring Hamels complained, jokingly, that any time he gets a bunch of tickets when the Phillies play up there, his guests arrive in Red Sox hats and gear.

Here's another "feel good post" for the whiners:


"Red Sox a threat to land Hamels"

http://www.fannation.com/truth_and_rumors/view/326957-red-sox-a-threat-to-land-hamels

These "feel good" posts about Hamels aren't making me feel good.

I think the Pigs could win the IL title

Yo, newer thread
