The Indians' equipment truck left for Arizona today.  Who cares about a groundhog?! ;D

February 10th for me. Good bye hunting season and good bye littering, loud, speeding, annoying drunken hunters!

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Sorry Robert, I've a hatred of the Indians ever since '97. That being said, things look terrible for the O's this season. Angelos is 93, there's no way he'll ever spend all of his millions before he croaks, he needs to just pay his players and get some pitching.

The O's not even being listed in the running for some of the free-agent starters in mind blowing.
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

Somehow spring training always seems to go the opposite of the regular season.  Your O's should kick butt there, enjoy it! I'm just wondering how many days into spring training before Kipnis goes on the DL for four months.  The new Brantley.

Phil, you really got in my head.  Ever since you mentioned '97, all day all I can think of is Jose Mesa.  #^([/;! %*&&@×?  Jose Mesa. (Never did hate Renteria or the Marlins, just Mesa.)

Dang! That's crazy! To be sure, I'm not opposed to Hunting just to hunter's slack appreciation for the wilderness. Shoot your deer, fine. Pick up your damn trash. And it wouldn't hurt you to climb that fat ass off that 4 wheeler and walk a few yards. ;)

At least the Indians have gotten to the world series recently, I wasn't even born when the O's made their last appearance.

Angelos is an example of the worst breed of owner. Happy to sit back and make money off the team (and the Nats TV deal), he doesn't care in investing in the team. Add an excellent stadium and loyal fanbase to the mix, and he doesn't have to do anything.

Yeah, we've had the good fortune of committed  ownership and top notch management for a long time.  But I know what you're up against Phil: similar story to the Browns.  Lucky for me I'm basically a baseball guy.

I really enjoyed Foles showing Brady how to catch a ball.

If you're a fan of both teams, their sharing a training facility would make for a doubly rewarding spring getaway!  I wonder what the beer scene is like in Goodyear?
