Numbers and other games

Yeah, baseball is a business. But with some franchises, fans DO matter. And values. SF Giants GM Bobby Evans, saying their “hearts and minds were really focused on one guy,” (Mark Melancon)
SF never met with Chapman, Evans said the off-field stuff was “not lost on us.” The Giants knew many of their fans were strongly opposed to a Chapman deal. …


Former Baylor football coach Art Briles is now suing a school VP and 3 regents for libel and slander. He said falsely said he didn’t report assaults and alleged gang rapes even though he knew about them.
So his defense is, I’m not a douchebag, I’m just an idiot?

NFL says that the pending domestic violence investigation against star Cowboys RB Ezekiel Eliott is “active and ongoing.” And no doubt the league will get serious about the investigation the week after the Super Bowl.

Weather well below freezing for tonight’s #Chiefs #Raiders #TNF game. So coaches planning pre-game strategy had no need to call time-outs before field goals. Kickers already iced.

Mick Jagger, 73, and girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, have welcomed Jagger’s 8th child, a boy. I see a marketing opportunity for father-son diapers..

So sad about the Oakland “Ghost Ship” fire that killed 36 people. Now the city planning director says building hadn’t been inspected in 3 decades. But hey, who needs burdensome regulations?

Andy Puzder, Trump’s new Labor Secretary, and CEO of Carl’s Jr., is against raising the minimum wage to more than $9 an hour, and has said of using machines instead of humans “They’re always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case.”
Yeah, yet another thank you gift from Trump to his lower and working class voters.

So Trump’s EPA pick believes in not protecting the environment, and now his Labor pick believes in reducing # of workers. #consistency

Rep Steve King, attacking “dreamers.” The reason they’re called ‘dreamers’ because that’s the most sympathetic term that could be applied to people.Among all of these dreamers, there are some awfully bad people.”
No doubt. But there are some “awfully bad people” born here in the USA. Can we kick them out too?


Donald Trump will remain as an executive producer of Celebrity Apprentice. Which as CNN reports, means as President he will have an interest in a show aired by a media company that also reports on his presidency.”
What could possibly go wrong?


Maybe we can relax about serious news bias.  Maybe  Donald  Trump will only stay as executive producer at @NBC until he can get Alec Baldwin fired.

  1. Giants also take team chemistry into account when looking at players — a family man like Melancon, who’s done good work in the communities and in the world, will fit in way better with the team than someone like Chapman. I’m looking forward to the new season. (Can spring training just hurry up and get here already?)
