Funny thing is...”jumping the shark” expression has come to mean a last
wild desperate attempt to stay valid.

But after Fonzi's jump, it was like another 200 episodes to go. :)

Fuck. When is it baseball season again?

Even the lockout is boring. Not even baseball is even that fucking stupid to fuck it up so you know it will be over by February.

Bob Melvin knew 20 minutes into his interview he was going to hire 27 year old hitting coach Michael Brdar. I hope he knows what he’s doing here, it eerily reminds me when John Boy and Toiletsco hastily hired Mike McCoy.

ha ha.....yeah sounds like the spenii falling in love with mcnorb and rejecting any other candidates......something about mcnorb being so organized and with his briefcase or whatever he had that blew them away. brrrrrrrrrrrdrrrrrrrrrrr. Minor league hitting coordinator. Here's the difference....the gnats went out and stole the major front office guy that turned the dogs into a WS champion. The padres run out and hire a behind the scenes minor league 27yo hitting coach from the gnats. BRRRRRRRRRRRRDRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Cold.

Ex Padre Mark Kotsay is new A's baseball manager.

Looks like A's willing to go the no big league Head Manager expetience route.

i think you have to say the Padres made the right move on the HM
by the current GM.
