    The FA Cup thread

    Yeah, definitely wasn't United's "A" squad but I could understand that with them playing in three different competitions in a nine-day span (League on the 10th, CL on the 13th and FA Cup on the 18th). Overall Reading have been doing well as of late; they may stave off relegation yet, especially now that the focus is more fully on that.
  2. The Love Garden in Lawrence, KS is a nice shop (mostly vinyl). I miss it.
  3. Hey, man, I respect Rochester. They used to be the Orioles AAA city (which I know you know), AND spawned Wegmans PLUS the radi oshow Crap from the Past!
  4. Glad to see someone else likes the Orioles. It was really interesting last year - maybe even more emotional than '89, hard to say. They're solid up the middle, and it will be interesting to see if Reimold and Roberts can be healthy. It just hasn't been happening for either one of them the past couple of years. I don't expect a ton of Roberts at this point, being 35 (not hating, just trying to be realistic), and Reimold will have to have crazy output this year and for what few seasons he can just not to be another case of what might have been. If Reimold is healthy and a producer, a very good outfield is right there. Reimold and Jones have good range, and I'm hoping that Markakis will restore some of his. After that ab tear (I think) to end '11 and the effects after that, he was slow coming back in '12. Late in the season he was ripping it up at the plate before C-Cup hit his hand. It will be interesting to see if he ends up back in that leadoff spot. Man, Machado. So legit. That left side of the infield is a fucking force, and third isn't even his usual position. Davis should be able to bolster his defense at first since that seems to be his regular spot. Getting shuffled around a bit last year probably didn't do too much for him in that way, but he always did what he could - Adrian Gonzalez knows that pretty well. The pitching will say so much about what the team does, especially the rotation; the 'pen still looks pretty good. There are so many rotation choices. If Bundy heads north with the big club, there will be a lot of eyes from very early on. If the league doesn't catch up with Gonzalez, he will be a stone-cold motherfucking assassin. Chen had some great games as well; I'm just wondering if he will be to the point yet where he can pitch every fifth day. He had a lot of leeway last year trying to assimilate to the MLB schedule after coming over from Japan. Plenty of good stuff from him, though, and he still logged over 190 innings. Of course, they're also trying to get the Jekyll versions of their young guys. If Tillman and Britton can bring it, I will be majorly enthused. So many other guys on the radar, too, and trying to figure their roles - Matusz, Hunter, Arrieta, Wada, Jurrjens, et al. Spring is exciting as hell this year. I can't wait for the games to start.

    It depends on where it's from, but usually pizza with toppings. Workout or nap?

    Top 5's

    Top five things I'd like this Christmas: 5) To not flunk out of grad school (all it takes is getting below a 3.0) and have a sense of future direction with it, whether or not it's at my current institution. 4) To see some people and things which I haven't seen in too long and miss very much. 3) For my father to maintain job security, and my home not be set on the path to being lost. 2) To enjoy the time but all the same reflect on ways to try to become an adequate person. 1) To spend quality time with my fiancee as it's in short supply anymore.

    This or That

    Vinyl - so many gems out there that never made it to CD, not to mention that certain connection (though I do like the portable nature of CDs). Leather or "pleather?"
  10. A bad end to a bad decade in baseball (except for some of the Hall of Fame inductees).

    NFL...09 season

  16. I'm definitely going to see It Might Get Loud before it leaves town this week. I've been way off the grid but I recently found out about it from a friend. That is something I'm very much looking forward to. Nice poster shot, Jahfin.
