Let’s make a deal?

November 13, 2019

Scott Boras isn’t happy about how long it took teams to sign his clients last year “I’m frustrated in the sense that the game has been hurt by it. Hurt by it in the sense that fans want [players to sign].”
Gosh, if Boras only didn’t demand salaries that only a handful of big-market teams can afford.

NFL now saying they will not provide the list of executives and coaches who will attend Colin Kaepernick’s workout Saturday.
Because league doesn’t want to incur the ire of fans of teams with lousy QBs who don’t show up?

Gape Kapler when introduced as new SF Giants Manager, said he wants to “to dig in a little bit more to really find out what the issues are, to find out why I have had some of those issues and why so far I have not been a popular hire…” This is not going to be a deep dive.

Now it’s Deval Patrick reportedly deciding to run for President. Uh, even the Bachelor/Bachelorette know you don’t start randomly adding people as you get down to the final roses.

Harrod’s in London is reserving Santa visits this Christmas to customers who have spent at least $2,500 .For that amount the only lap men want isn’t Santa but a lap dancer.

Real estate executive Toby MacFarlane was sentenced to six months in prison for in college admissions scandal. His daughter, who has already graduated from USC, had never played soccer when she wrote on her 2013 application essay “My parents have a hard time attending my soccer matches because our opponent’s parents are always making rude remarks about that number 8 player who plays without a care for her body or anyone else’s on the field. It is true that I can be a bit intense out there on the field.”
Sounds like the baby snake didn’t slither far from the tree.

Speaking of baby snakes, wonder  how many copies of  Donnie Jr’s book “Triggered” were paid for by our tax dollars. And how many were paid for in rubles?

Matt Bevin is touting so many outlandish conspiracy theories about why he lost Kentucky Governor’s race you almost think he’s auditioning to join Trump’s re-election campaign.

If only Gym Jordan had tried to protect wrestlers at Ohio State like he is trying to protect Donald Trump.

Mark Meadows “I think what happens is when we start to look at the facts, everybody has their impression of what truth is.”
So to GOP now, the truth is like science?

So Trump White House position that witnesses in impeachment hearings have never even spoken to POTUS, and anyone who has spoken to Donald will be prohibited from testifying. Got it.

I’ve clearly missed the GOP outrage over unqualified children of the President making big $$$ from foreign governments AND profiting off of U.S. taxpayers.

Bottom feeding?

Really, Farhan? As an SF Giants fan I was happy the team didn’t sign Chapman, or Osuna, even when the bullpen struggled. And I gave up on the 49ers when Eddie D “allegedly” sexually assaulted a waitress. Not quite that upset. Yet. But come on, Gabe Kapler? WTF?

So what’s next SF Giants? I hear former Houston assistant GM Brandon Taubman is available.

Colin Kaepernick is having a private workout for NFL teams on Saturday in Atlanta. Right about now Bears fans would let Kaep set a flag on fire at midfield if he could play better than Mitch Trubisky.

Top ranked Kentucky lost in men’s basketball tonight to….. Evansville? Can we blame this on Trump’s visit too.

Nothing against Yu Darvish, and if allegations are true what the Astros did with electronic sign stealing at Minute Maid Park was wrong. But Game 7 of 2017 World Series was in LOS ANGELES.

Seriously Facebook? I’m getting suggestions to join “Team Tom” for Tom Steyer?
While I’m “Vote Blue no Matter Who 2020,” it’s a very short list of candidates who are lower on my list than Tom.

Saw Stephen Miller trending and apparently it’s news that leaked emails show him to be a White Supremacist. Wouldn’t it be bigger news if leaked emails showed he wasn’t a White Supremacist?

Trump tweeted today. “Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young, are far from “angels.” Some are very tough, hardened criminals. President Obama said he had no legal right to sign order, but would anyway. If Supreme Court remedies with overturn, a deal will be made with Dems for them to stay!”
Not sure where to start with this…. but “some are very tough, hardened criminals” but “a deal will be made with Dems for them to stay.”?
Yet another sign of dementia – contradicting yourself in the SAME SENTENCE.

 

Mick Mulvaney says he will also defy House impeachment inquiry subpoena. So is WH Chief of Staff hoping to keep Trump from firing him before Christmas?

Nikki Haley declined to help Kelly and Tillerson when they told her were trying to save the country.
So one question, if Haley believed in Donald Trump so much why did she resign?

Mark Sanford is dropping out of the Presidential Race. So will he now lick his wounds by taking a long hike on the Appalachian Trail?

Politico reports that in hopes of shoring up evangelical base, Trump is considering an executive order to tie U.S. aid to other countries on how well they treat their religious minorities. At the same time he tries to expand his Muslim ban? Irony, your regular table is ready.
