An anthropomorphic satire of mathematics, because Lewis Carroll was a math professor named Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson who thought that abstract math (that is now taught in schools everywhere) is total bullshit, and as an Anglican deacon, thought it was Satan’s creation.
Thus, this makes every math-hating artist’s loving depiction of Alice and her friends hilariously ironic.
This past weekend we found out that Arrested Development will return to television in a nine- or ten-episode limited-run series, set to film next summer, with each episode focusing on a single member of the Bluth clan. And series creator Mitchell Hurwitz said that he is halfway through the…
It’s time for a fresh start. With the departure of Francona and Epstein, Ortiz’s contract expiration, and a handful of big money free agent failures, it’s time to reboot. It was a good run - the best run the Sox have ever seen from a GM/Manager combo. Tito and Theo are first ballot hall of famers…
I agree with some points, but disagree with others. a few of my issues, briefly:
1) We say Ortiz is old every year, but then he comes back and hits 30+ HRs. I’d say (unpopular opinion) he’s still contributing. Are there guys that could contribute more than him? Maybe. But I think that he’s good for 30 dingers for another year or two. Also, neither Varitek nor David Ortiz are known for being injured more than many other players.
2) Flops: I agree with all but Crawford. I think he was overhyped and we expected too much of him. That’s not to say I don’t expect more from a 14 million dollar contract, but I think one season is too soon to give up on him. Give him another season or two. He may go J.D. Drew on us, but he also might have a Josh Beckett-esque rebound.
3) I agree we need young talent. Pedroia is already a star for the Sox, as is Ellsbury. Nava is a fluke. I’d love him to prove me wrong, but I don’t see anything there but a bartering chip. Iglesias Should be brought up as soon as he’s ready, along with Will Middlebrooks. This leads me to Kevin Youkilis: (Massively unpopular opinion, even to myself) Youk belings in the category of aging, frequently injured players. He’s injured more than all of the players you mentioned in that category, and we have a lot of talent at 3rd base in the minors. I don’t like it, but we may be able to get someone good for him. I really hope Im wrong on this one.
