  1. I definitely agree that terminology and labels have evolved over time. I guess I'm just confused why so many people that got whipped into a frenzy over the "Drain the Swamp" mentality are still so aggressively on board with the cult of personality now that we're seeing clear evidence Rothbardian's refrain that they're all (including the so-called swamp-drainer) just more of the same.
  2. Agreed, which is why it's so weird for "conservatives" to have fallen in love with the centralization of power and big government tactics of the current administration.
  3. So about an average of a little over $600 billion a year for both parties over that span of time, and about $1 trillion a year under each of our two most recent presidents - each of whom ran on a platform of changing the status quo in Washington. Which is kind of my point.
  4. I saw on Instagram that Cole Hunt is getting another shot at the NFL, this time with the Keh'lina Panthas
  5. While, yeah, I figured it was the type of hollow claim that's very on-brand for him - I also didn't think that he'd have the same lust for debt as the predecessor he and his lemmings so love to hate.
  6. Skeptical as I was at the time of Trump's campaign promise to eliminate the national debt, I am surprised to see how casually his administration is brushing that off in pursuit of an Obama-esque escalation in debt. Washington Examiner: Kudlow admits Trump won't pay down any of the debt Drain the Swamp, huh?
  7. Yeah - I wasn't questioning whether or not he's returning next year - I was wondering if our depth down low is really as thin as it seems to be.
  8. In terms of big guys to play in the paint next year, we'll have Samuel, Barlow and.....Lat Mayen? Is that it?
  9. The Athletic put out their first 2020 mock draft this morning - they've got Reagor going #14 to Jacksonville.
  10. I'm much more excited about the 2020-21 Frogs than I am the upcoming season.
  11. FiveThirtyEight has a pretty intriguing series in which readers submit their most polarizing political opinions and then get interviewed about it. If you're the type of person who only wants to hear from people with your same world view, you'll hate it. Not that often do these interviews change my opinion on a topic, but they do shed light on different perspectives and motivations - which I find interesting. Anyway, today's was (I felt) a pretty good example of the type of lunacy the political left is dealing with* these days: FiveThirtyEight Political Confessional: I think private schools should be banned * - or perhaps not properly dealing with, as both sides appear to be steering into the skid of their own lunacy
  12. Triple-A Kevin Cron (Reno/D'Backs) followed up his 3-HR performance on Thursday by also going deep once each on both Friday and Saturday. Through 21 games he's now hitting .377 with 11 HR, 33 RBI and a 1.363 OPS. Bryan Holaday (New Orleans/Marlins) has hit safely in 5 of his last 6 games, including a home run last Monday. Through 14 games he's now hitting .333 with 2 HR, 7 RBI and a 1.063 OPS. Alex Young (Reno/D'Backs) had an outing last week in which he gave up 5 runs in an inning, which darn near doubled his ERA. Through 8 relief appearances, he's 1-0 with a 6.46 ERA and opposing hitters are batting .323 against him. Tyler Alexander (Toledo/Tigers) is allowing opposing hitters to bat .373 against him, which has resulted in him starting the year 0-2 with an 8.64 ERA. He does have 16 K's against just 4 walks, though. Jason Coats (Durham/Rays) is mired in a 2-for-20 slump over the last week. Through 11 total games he's hitting .162 with 1 HR, 1 RBI and a .448 OPS. Stefan Crichton (Reno/D'Backs) tallied 3 K's in 1.2 scoreless innings last time out. Through 8 relief appearances, he's 0-1 with a 3.68 ERA. Jantzen Witte (Pawtuck/Red Sox) has hit safely in 5 of his last 6, and is now hitting .300 with 5 RBI in 8 games since his promotion from Double-A. Double-A Durban Feltman (Portland/Red Sox) picked up his first save of the season last time out, and through 7 relief appearances is 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA.

Jerrick Suiter (Altoona/Pirates) had a 3-hit game earlier this week. Through 20 games, he's hitting .277 with 6 RBI Taylor Featherston (NW Arkansas/Royals) has cooled off considerably since his hot start, as he's just 7-for-37 across his last 10 games. Through 22 games, he's hitting .296 with 1 HR, 13 RBI and a .765 OPS. Jordan Kipper (Bowie/Orioles) and Brian Trieglaff (Trenton/Yankees) remain on the disable list and have not played so far this season.

Through 21 games, he's hitting .273 with 1 HR, 12 RBI and an .842 OPS Austen Wade (Lynchburg/Indians) has hit safely in 8 of his last 10 games, including each of the last four. Through 16 games, he's hitting .241 with 4 RBI and a .656 OPS A-Ball Evan Skoug (Kannapolis/White Sox) hit his first home run of the year over the weekend. Through 15 games, he's hitting an even .200 with 1 HR, 3 RBI and a .669 OPS. Sean Wymer (Lansing/Blue Jays) was chased in the 4th inning of his last start after giving up 5 runs. Through 4 starts, he's 1-0 with a 5.32 ERA.
  13. Well, being a blowhard New Yorker with terrible ideas about abusing government powers to control the free market ought to endear him to Republicans.
  14. You mean other than using undocumented immigrant workers to get his projects done?
  15. Yes, broken clocks are right twice a day!
  16. In the face of the recent outbreak of measles, Trump is joining Harris on the backpedaling train. He's now stressing the importance of vaccinations, which stands in contrast to his previous statements that have supported the myth that vaccinations cause autism.
  17. Three more home runs for Cron last night - his third professional hat trick. Through 19 games, he's hitting .352 with 9 HR, 26 RBI and a 1.244 OPS.
  18. -Cashner scattered 5 hits and a single run across 7 IP in his last start against the White Sox on Tuesday, striking out 5 and picking up another W to improve to 4-1 on the year and lower his ERA to 4.18. His next scheduled start is next Tuesday, also against the White Sox but on the road. -Arrieta tallied 7 K's in 6 innings in his last start against the Mets on Monday, but also gave up 7 hits and 3 runs to take the L. He's now 3-2 on the year with a 2.65 ERA, with his next start scheduled for Saturday evening against the Marlins. -Carpenter has hit safely in 5 of his last 7 for the Cardinals, but his batting average is still just .209 for the year.
  19. Bleacher Report (I know, I know) has three Frogs going in their final 7-round mock draft: -LJ Collier to Tennessee (2nd round, #51 overall) -Ben Banogu to Arizona (4th round, #103 overall) -Ty Summers to Denver (6th round, #182 overall)
  20. As of today (April 24th), we're exactly halfway through the offseason.
  21. - Kevin Cron had his hitting streak halted at 9, but started a new one last night with a home run in El Paso. Through 17 games for Triple-A Reno (D'Backs), he's hitting .349 with 6 HR, 19 RBI and a 1.169 OPS. -Bryan Holaday went deep as part of a two-hit outing last night for Triple-A New Orleans (Marlins).
