July 20, 2006 | Onion Sports
WASHINGTON, DC—While speaking to reporters Tuesday, Jose Canseco released the names of 10,000 current and former baseball players whom he alleges have taken part in the sport at some point during their lives. "Tim Teufel, Jim Abbot, Henry 'Hank' Aaron, Sid Fernandez, Mike Piazza, Graig Nettles, Ken Griffey Jr., Ken Griffey Sr., Chris Sabo, Dave Valle, Erubiel Durazo, Pat Listach, Carney Lansford, Terry Steinbach, Gary Gaetti," said Canseco at one point during his 14-hour statement. "Eddie Murray, Eddie Matthews, Eddie Guardado, while we're on Eddies, there's Eddie Cicotte… Um, Babe Ruth obviously, Jay Gibbons, Henry Blanco, Ralph Kiner, Darren Daulton, me, Cap Anson, Willie Bloomquist, Henry Rodriguez..." Canseco added that, if necessary, he can name thousands of other players, as long as he is granted access to official Hall Of Fame records or the 2006 edition of the Baseball Encyclopedia.

If PNC is going FA we need to make an offer, GAB is nice and all..but we could get a few great minor league parks for it and not miss a beat with PNC moving in.

I don't know...I hear it's a real sellers market and we may have to give up too much in return for PNC. You can't ignore the value proposition in the deal.If PNC is going FA we need to make an offer, GAB is nice and all..but we could get a few great minor league parks for it and not miss a beat with PNC moving in.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
PNC is using the threat of relocation to leverage better tax breaks from the state's legislature/taxpayers...all in an effort to line his pockets, of course.
Never overlook the obvious

I used to read The Onion before it had a web site. It's kind of a running joke there that the writers will throw in phrases in a stilted 19th-century style for added comedic effect.Originally Posted by TeamBoone
bigger tax breaks is another way of saying a free ride on the backs of the tax payers and a larger profit for those in the glass booths. It sounds like tax cuts but is actually tax shuffling.
