And yet again, John, you show your inability to make any kind of rational argument.

Like the hundred other times you destroyed him.

Don't trade Santander. Their outfield situation isn't so great. Hayes and Mullins have tailed off. Stowers shows promise but that's all at this point. McKenna's a fourth or fifth outfielder. Cowser's .192 at Norfolk. I think he'll be fine, but maybe not at the start of next season.Kjerstad's picking up at Aberdeen, but he's 2 yrs. away.

O's could sign an placeholder outfielder for a 2-year deal.If others start doing well and rapping on the door, you can trade him.

When we bring him up in the last 3 weeks of the season would that count for his ‘under control ‘ years?

It looks like we've reached our Reichstag moment.

the MAGA+FASCIST= JANUARY 6th phony equation now emanating from Joe Biden and his party -- even going to the obscene length of enlisting the recent solemn remembrance of the 9/11 nightmare -- oblige me to ask the reader’s indulgence while I tread upon my own rule.

The Dems comparisons of January 6th to 9/11 would be merely preposterous if it were not so morally disgusting; their strained attempts to make the D.C. riot of January 6, 2021 and the resulting trespasses upon the Capitol building into a seminal, earth-shaking event require them to take mendacity to new depths.

In fact, there is an historical event that’s somewhat closer to the mark, but it’s one that every Democrat would be loath to recognize: for purely naked political purposes Biden and many Democrats are trying to make January 6th into some poor facsimile of the Reichstag Fire.

On February 27, 1933, not quite a full month after Adolf Hitler was “legally” appointed Chancellor of Germany, the huge Reichstag building, home to the nation’s parliament, burned to the ground. While it’s never been proved conclusively, it’s strongly suspected that the Nazis themselves arranged the fire (Herman Goering in particular is thought to have been complicit) in order to create a crisis that would allow Hitler to justify a further and more complete seizure of power. German communists seeking to also ignite a coup were to blame for the fire according to the Nazis, and Hitler came down upon them like a ton of bricks. Ironically though, it was not a German, but a young Dutch communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, who was quickly apprehended, convicted and executed for the crime. His actual guilt has always been a matter of controversy, and Germany’s modern-day government saw fit to issue him a posthumous pardon.

Taking full advantage of the shock the fire caused upon the sensibilities of ordinary, order-loving Germans, emergency decrees were quickly issued by the Hitler and his cabinet. In March the resituated parliament, bullied and intimidated by the Nazis, passed the notorious Enabling Act, rubber-stamping the suspension of the right of assembly, press freedom, and the ability protests; effectively obliterating the Weimar Republic and clearing the way for absolute dictatorship.

Hastily built concentration camps were soon filled with German communists, along with other undesirables and perceived enemies of the Reich. We all know the succeeding chapters to that terrible story.

While we can rejoice in the fact that such extreme measures are presently unthinkable in America, Joe Biden, whether by his own design or adhering to a script fashioned by sharper minds, has chosen to employ the autocrat’s tactic of marginalization of large segments of the American population; an action which, as history shown again and again, can be the first step in a tragic spiral of violence and destruction.

There are clearly some within the Biden orbit who wish to provoke a violent response to something -- anything -- so long as it gives them the necessary excuse to invoke the powers of the state to suppress and intimidate opposition.

According to both current and former rank-and-file FBI agents, Joe Biden is so desperate to prove that White supremacists are a huge threat to America that he’s been pressuring agents to make up cases (something that may explain the FBI-inspired Gretchen Whitmer “kidnap plot” in Michigan). The whistleblowers are anonymous, so this story is still an allegation, but it’s certainly consistent with the administration’s There was that FBI chart labeling anyone with a Gadsden Flag or Betsy Ross flag, among other common symbols associated with America, as a potential White supremacist. Also, prominent people in the administration, from Biden on down, constantly insist that White supremacy is the worst threat to Americans’ safety and well-being. Here are just a few examples:

April 28, 2021: Biden says that “White supremacy is terrorism.”

May 12, 2021: Merrick Garland tells Congress that White supremacists are “the most dangerous threat to our democracy.”

June 15, 2021: The White House issues a “fact sheet” claiming that White supremacy is one of “the two most legal elements of today’s domestic terrorism threat....”

May 17, 2022: Biden blames White supremacy for a shooting in Buffalo, NY.

September 14, 2022: Biden says “White supremacy is the greatest terrorist threat to our Homeland today.”

The problem for Democrats is that, while there are always going to be fringe haters, some of whom do awful things, there is no White supremacist movement in America. The Democrats’ racist glory days in the 1920s, when they were able to gather as many as 50,000 Klansman (and women) to march on Washington D.C., are gone:racial obsessions, the dearth of actual White supremacists, and the endless list of leftist hoaxes to offset that dearth.

Rank-and-file FBI agents are accusing the Biden administration of exaggerating the threat of White supremacists and pressuring agents to cook up domestic terrorist cases involving racist extremists.

Current and former FBI agents told The Washington Times that the perceived White supremacist threat is overblown by the administration. They said top bureau officials are pressuring FBI agents to create domestic terrorist cases and tag people as White supremacists to meet internal metrics.

“The demand for White supremacy” coming from FBI headquarters “vastly outstrips the supply of White supremacy,” said one agent, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “We have more people assigned to investigate White supremacists than we can actually find.”

The fascist Biden regime is trying to manufacture violence so it can crack down on it, with the active assistance of Garland and the corrupt FBI. This is an old leftist tactic called bottom up top down. It's despicable, amoral, possibly illegal, and stnadard operating procedure for teh Democrat cult.

Didn't realize Denoyer had that good a numbers.Kjerstad's coming. If he does well in Az, you'll see him in Bowie some time next year.The guy's had a terrible time ot it since entering pro ball. Let's face it. I thought Prieto w/do a lot better than he has, considering that he was supposedly a top bat in Cuba.

I think bigger bases and limiting pitchers to two pickoff attempts is a bad idea. I really don't think bigger bases is about limiting injuries. I think they want to take baseball back to small ball because they think that's what younger fans want. It's like going back to pre Babe Ruth days. Stolen base records are going to be shattered. I don't like restricting the shift either. A manager should be able to position his fielders any way he wants to. I really hate the ghost runner thing also. Some of the most exciting games I have seen were extra inning games. Remember the Chris Davis game. Other issues I have is how horribly minor league players have been treated. Only because it became public did owners raise minor league pay. To make up for that, they eliminated many minor league teams, including our local team. They have actually discussed moving second base in, and moving the pitchers mound back. What a joke. What baseball needs is a commissioner that isn't a puppet of the owners. Manfra is nothing more than a spokesman for the owners. How about the committee that voted on the rules, six of the eleven voters are owners. That is a farce. They are changing the game and not for the good. It's 100% about money the greedy bastards.
