Harper doesn't even know which city he is playing for. He massively underperformed at his press conference. His eyebrows look as cocky as Roman emperors. Before the press conference. Definitely doesn't seem to be happy in Philly. Hope the Angels fix their unis to look better and keep Trout.

Kraft sexually underperforming as owner of the Pats is quite embarrassing, too. Pro sports has become a total mess of egos.

Wait, I thought he passed the stat guy test. Who cares about his mental make-up? ;)
I don’t think I’ve commented on his numbers which are bizarre.

I beleive in the numbers for sure but there are guys you just want no part of.

It has a chance to be a home run for the Phillies because the AAV isn’t that bad - but it’s way riskier to me than Machado especially if the NL gets the Dan Hurley.

I don't think Hurley is qualified just yet for the Majors. He'd have to get some seasoning first. "There might be an opening in Visalia next year." ;)

I was just riffing off our previous exchange ITT, where I was talking about how mental makeup, club house culture, and some of that other intangible stuff is important, and you made fun of me for it.
