Hearing how irritated the Rockies announcers got by Javy’s counter-sign stealing measures, I hope he does it every time they play Colorado from now on.

I love how one of them says "Anyhow, even if he's attempting to, that's part of the game. And if you do steal signs, shame on you." So, which is it?

They did say that, but if you listen to the next sentence it is clear that "shame on you" meant "shame on you for having such simple signs that they can easily be stolen".

Which is not to say that they shouldn't get to fuck, of course.

This is all very simple: shame on the Cubs if they are so inept that their signs can be stolen, and also shame on the Cubs for preventing their signs from being stolen.

So he's got enough plate appearances and cooled off enough from his insane hot streak (before heating back up again) and it looks like he's regressed in the areas I expected him to (walk rate, mostly) but otherwise his sub 20% K rate appears to be here to stay, which means I think him having an OPS in the .850-.950 range is going to be A Thing. A Javy that doesn't swing and miss, even if he's not gonna draw walks, is one helluva ballplayer.
I will vow, for the sake of peace, not to complain about David Ross between now and his first start next year- 10/26/2015

I read a lot of words and none of them were "leads the major leagues in RBIs" so I don't know what you're using to evaluate him but it's wrong.
I can't believe I even know these people. I'm ashamed of my internet life.

If you want to trend on Twitter, you must Tweet about a reckless bunt.

You must also propose that a squeeze bunt with the runner breaking off third and a hitter who hates bunting somehow was doing it on his own and it was not a call from the dugout.

You two wanna go stick your wangs in a hornet's nest, it's a free country.  But how come I always gotta get sloppy seconds, huh?
