    Spanking new off topic thread, random thought:

    Miss baseball, but will enjoy weekend afternoon nap time.

    I remember a few years ago there being a “Rose Rule” in the RAB Guidelines. Anybody remember what that was all about? Totally forgot what it was but remember seeing it there and now it’s gone.

      I don’t remember exactly, but it could mean a few things.

      “Rose” was a poster who usually did nothing but hijack threads with non-Yankees, non-baseball related topics. Rose’s chief talking point was about how Ohio was not really a state of the union. Rose also had a tendency to post in a thread with a link to a different thread so that someone would pay attention to it.

      Basically, Rose did nothing but troll and demand people pay attention to him.

    A.J. Pierzynski signed with the Red Sox. The most unlikeable player in Major League Baseball on major league baseball’s most unlikeable team. Fantastic.

  4. I'm One says:

    Mariners appear to be major players for Cano. Guess we’ll find out if the Yankees hold the line they’ve drawn, find a creative way around it, or forget about it all together.

  5. Pinkie Pie says:

    Boone Logan just signed with the Rockies. If the Yank’s pen seemed thin before, it really does now.

    Here is an article about the death of the greatest fielding centerfielder of my lifetime. I didn’t know he won two WS rings with the Yanks before I read this article.

    I know it’s Gary Sheffield, but this is an interesting take on why Robinson Cano might have been wiser to stay in New York.

    Would Tanaka just sign with somebody already? I’m really fucking tired of this waiting game.

  9. Angelo says:

    Yankees to sign Tanaka according to MLBTR. 7 years $155M is a big commitment… Opt out after year 4.

  11. Tanuki Tanaka (Formerly Bob Buttons) says:

    Not that any cares but I for some reason thought there was 31 days in February for the past few days.

    These off-topic threads are a ghost town now a days

  13. Kevin G. says:

    I wonder how many times I can post before someone notices me. Like I could probably post nudity and shit, but it wouldn’t be caught for like 6 months.

  14. Kevin G. says:

    I’m so lonely here.
