    Echo, whoever said milton was the gateway to the an understanding that saber principles had a legit value. It was for me. He was just so so so bad. And i was warned. And i didnt heed the warnings. And thst failure ended up making me so so so sad.

    I was wrong about Hanley Ramirez. I didn't think his power would be much more than 15-20 home runs and therefore thought he was a good, but not elite prospect.

    That Gary Redus would be a superstar.

    That Eric Milton would come around. I started listening to sabre guys because of Milton's failure.
    Ditto.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    That's all you've got?

    That's like saying "I thought this ice cream would be good, but NOOOOO, it's great"

    How do you sleep at night with ghosts like this in your closet?
    Get your nunchucks and the keys to your dad's car. I know where we can get a gun

    Nope, it is just the one I regret the most.

    I sleep with a pillow, the same blanket I have had since I was 3 (it was my dads, made for him by his mother when he was 13) and my two dogs. Sometimes it goes well. Sometimes it doesn't. Depends on how my knee is feeling that night.

    You regret undervaluing Hanley Ramirez?

    Not to be mean but you might want to go outside right now and do something really stupid just for the hell of it. It might be good for you to get past this.

    I was wrong that time when I thought I could wait until I got home to poop.

    You were wrong about Elvis Andrus too. I think it's a shortstop thing not a height thing....

    Those damn pitching prospects we kept acquiring in the JimBo years! (Technically Claussen was acquired the same day JimBo was fired)
    Don't forget Rob Bell and Chris Gruler. I got suckered in by the hype!
