  1. I'm in if we can get it going in time
  2. Gov Moonbeam has actually done a decent job in my view - he's pledged not to increase taxes unless the people vote for it (hence prop 30). For now, the state democrats have agreed to this but time will tell. Brown who's 74 has no higher aspirations and can do whatever he wants - from that standpoint, he's beholden to no one since I doubt he'll run for another term. He actually did a decent job as the mayor of Oakland and has become more moderate as he gets older. He's actually balanced the budget with Prop 30 passing (something Davis and the Governator couldn't do) but also reiterated
  3. Make an offer on Justin Ruggiano OF Mia $1.00 RFA No Tier Aaron Hill 2B Ari $4.50 RFA Tier 1 Victor Martinez C/1B Det $2.75 RFA No Tier Tyler Moore 1B/OF Was $1 RFA No Tier Michael Saunders OF Sea $1 RFA No Tier Shane Victorino OF LAD $4.25
  4. Yup - if they thought there were more, why wouldn't they expand their effort to verify voting eligibility?
  5. Actually we get that the 3,903 met some test where their voting status was suspect and out of that #, only 141 were found ineligible. If any of the rest of the voters were suspect, they would have gotten a letter also asking for more information.
  6. Gessler is a Republican who is a true believer in rooting out voter fraud and he only found 141 illegals out of 3.5 million voters Similar stories in the other states - but it's a good way to fire up the base so we'll keep spending lots of $ to find all these illegal voters.
  7. So based on the BLS statistics Men 20 Years and older: 71% are employed Women 20 Years and older : 60% are employed That's for the civilian noninstitutional population - not sure if that excludes students and stay-at-home parents, but Romney's 47% obviously includes working folks who happen to be poor. This should be good for a week of entertainment
  8. Gore/Kerry wussed out - they deserved to lose the election Obama gets down into the mud with the Republicans - both sides are now really reaching with their ads - lots of "pants on fire" ads if you look at politifact. You don't win in politics if you don't go negative unfortunately
  9. Congrats Jeff! - it's about time and can't believe you still have that picCongrats Steve! - quite the good looking kid
  10. Yeah Margin call was excellent - Spacey was great in that movie.Also if you're in sales, you have to know " my loss is your gain"
  11. We don't know how exactly Zimmerman escalated in the situation. If he did in a way that Trayvon was scared for his life, then Trayvon could have tried to defend himself by attacking Zimmerman.Unfortunately we'll never know exactly what happened.during those few minutes
  12. Phoebe Cates for sureKirsten Dunst surprised me in Melancholia - they looked much better than I thought they wouldHad to google Thora Birch but now I remember
  13. Well since he's dead, they don't have a sample of Martin's voice. They do have a sample of Zimmerman's voice from his 911 call which is what the experts used to compare against the screams/cries.
  14. I'll do that trade Serge
  15. Thanks Adam for another great season as commish - I think that the playoffs are a crapshoot so I'll take the luck at the right time. My match with Ingmen was very close in the first round - we were tied up til the last game of the night. It was actually a very close game with RTM as well as I only won faceoffs by 7 and we were tied in assists. My goalies pitching two shutsouts basically helped me sweep the goalie categories to get me the win. I was actually camping this weekend so I knew I wouldn't be able to counteract the Saturday full replacement maneuver so I was sweating a bit on Sund
  16. This is my first year watching idol and the voice since the kids for the first time wanted to watch - I actually like both shows so I guess I've missed out.For idol, Phillip, Josh, Hollie and Jessica are my favorites although I think that Colton and Skylar have a better chance of winning (agree with LG's analysis). Heejun, Deandre and Elise will probably go next - the first two because they are overmatched and Elise because she gets put in the bottom three a lot (last week was the first time she didn't and only because she did a great job - one mediocre performance and she's back at the botto
  17. I'd be in for some transaction limit per week during the playoffs. During the regular season especially at the beginning, I think that it's fine to do a bunch of transactions if you drafted the wrong players.One issue with the playoff deadline for transactions (I'm assuming you mean frozen rosters) is how to deal with injuries (both dtd and dl) - it would stink not being able to replace an injured player.
  18. The actress that plays Lori was good in Prison Break - in the comic Lori has a lot of personality flaws (not likable at all) so from that standpoint, she's nailing the TV role.But yeah, I thought revulsion for sure and I couldn't figure out why since Rick explained that Shane went after him first. Remorse makes more sense but I'll agree that she didn't sell that at all.
  19. That's been a strategy that various owners have used in the past years in the playoffs - I picked up two guys yesterday for the same purpose since there were a bunch of close categories (hits, PIM) in my playoff match. We could vote on a maximum # of moves per week or something if we want to change the rules for next year or even the rest of the playoffs. However other things to consider would be injuries (not just the DL but the day to day) - I wouldn't hesitate to swap out an injured guy if I wasn't sure when he would return and wouldn't want to be constrained by a maximum # of moves hard
  20. Can't be much closer right now - three of the four matches are tied as the last games finish up. What is the tiebreaker if the teams tie?
