    Friday OT #1 - Rubbing Pennies

    I think we all probably have stories about the battle of the utility bills. The thermostat wars and not leaving lights on or wasting water and such

    He's fun as hell to watch when he is at his best but he's leaving a lot of money on the table by not making changes with his plate approach. He'd be one of the top paid SS in the game if he'd cut down on chasing the bad pitches he does.

    Friday OT #1 - Rubbing Pennies

    We had a guy on our floor in college from Michigan we would send all our cans and bottles back when he went home for breaks.

    Friday OT #1 - Rubbing Pennies

    My dad will run the gas tank down to the last drop if it means he can make it to the exit with the cheaper gas. For the extra dollar or 2 he might save on a tank of gas to me seems silly for the inconvenience it would be to run out of gas and have to walk to go get some. Although I swear he...

    I think Kimbrel and Bryant will be traded today and it would not shock me if Javy goes too depending on where KB goes. Sounds like the Mets have some interest in a Javy + Davies package. Just ready for this to be over to see what is left when the dust settles. The hardest part was the reality...

    RIP Dusty Hill of ZZ Top

    Dang another music legend lost. Saw them at the Iowa State Fair in the late 90's right after they had to "tone down" their concerts and was heck of a show still. Probably my favorite ZZ Top song:

    Lots of interesting reads on Bleacher Nation right now. Sounds like the Red Sox want Rizzo but its a matter of asking price. Really interesting read on Bryant: Kris Bryant Speaks: Willing to Re-Sign with the Cubs, Being on a Selling Team, Managing Mental Health, More (bleachernation.com)...

    Roxette, Ace of Base, and Savage Garden are others that comes to mind around the MTV era too

    On That Note: I Want(ed) My MTV

    One thing I always associated with MTV was Beavis and Butthead and how they would just drop random music videos into the middle of an episode

    On That Note: I Want(ed) My MTV

    It's not exactly MTV but CMT is the country version of MTV and I've always felt that Brad Paisley comes up with some of the most creative music videos for his songs

    Between what they have got so far for Joc and Chafin has me optimistic they are going to get a nice return on Kimbrel and KB.

    Will be interesting to see what this roster looks like a week from today. It's crazy to think even after they trade KB they still have a "log jam" at 3B with Bote Duffy and Wisdom. Wisdom and KB played in the OF corners today with Bote at 3B and they still had no spot to play Duffy with Nico...

    Assuming the Big XII implodes, losing the Big XII tournament in KC will be a tragedy

    In all honesty I don't know why we keep catering to Texas other than their $ base. I posted some of this in another thread but if you go back and look over their FB and BB records over the past decade or so they have been very mediocre. Since Mac Brown was forced out after 2013 they are now on...
