Nice selection in dogs -- Westies rule!

Brandon McCarthy is indeed pretty cool. I'm bummed that he's not with the A's anymore, but mostly I'm happy he's okay after getting his skull cracked in and that he got a really good deal from the D-Backs.

He was funny in spurts, but it got old quick.

McCarthy will literally converse with anyone online throughout the course of a Liverpool game. He doesn't try; he just is a nice and funny guy.

Another guy close to the top is Mat Latos, who has a cat named Cat Latos

Also, I feel compelled to point out that this was a Buzzfeed article that wasn't a giant, steaming pile of shiat. I'm going to go get a giant mouthful of water so I can do a spit-take.

I loled.

Conversely, I'm so glad we got him down here. I don't know if I would've paid him that much money, but I hope he makes me feel a bit foolish for thinking that. And the stuff he said about interacting with fans fits him in very well with the Dbacks organization, who are big on fan interaction with players.

Agree 100%

Here is a link for you that my family has been laughing at for a week:
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/videogallery/72379629/News/Villages-r es ident-tells-tale-of-saving-his-dog-from-an-alligator-attackOur current Westie has the face of an angel and the heart of a pro wresting heel, it is my opinion that the gator was minding his own business trying to sleep and "bounce" was harassing him. The fact that is shot like a scene from best in show makes it even funnier to me.

This is a guy whose Twitter avatar is a picture of him laying down on the mound immediately after being hit in the head by the ball that caused his injuries, with a caption that says "Paint me like one of your French girls." I mean, holy shiat.

He had one that had me laughing recently. I guess people were giving him shiat about the paleness of his legs, because he tweeted "IF I DON'T WEAR SHORTS HOW WILL I GET THE COLOR YOU SO OBVIOUSLY DEMAND???"

Just checked - CJ Wilson is still with the halos.
 
2013-03-29 05:07:33 PM
I'm glad he's recovered. Hoping it's a full recovery.

Very nice.  Very nice indeed.  We have two Westies, male and female, and both of them are temperamentally like night and day.  The male will just lay up on the couch like he's too pooped to pop and then, when any animal appears on the wide screen TV, he's all jumping up and down, barking at the intruder. Then he'll cap his routine by looking behind the TV to see where the animal came from.  The female could care less about the TV and any geckos or horses that appear on screen.  She's all about keeping the back yard safe from the occasional squirrel that wanders in the yard.  By now the squirrels have her figured out and will jump up on a tree just a foot or so above her ability to jump.  Squirrels -- trolls with bushy tails.

-FTFY

You'll soon tire of his lame-ass "Chris Chris" schtick, too.

The Diamondbacks definitely have the best signature band in Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers.

I was really hoping the Mariners would make an attempt at signing him, especially with Jeff Sullivan trying to influence Brandon's decision. http://www.lookoutlanding.com/2012/12/7/3742226/brandon-mccarthy-seat t le-mariners-study-arizona-diamondbacks

/I miss Jeff at LL already :(

Somehow knew this would be about McCarthy. I too am sad that the A's didn't keep him, happy that he's apparently recovered fully.

JayCab: Somehow knew this would be about McCarthy.


Most likely because signing McCarthy was the only Diamondbacks offseason move that wasn't completely insane.

Diamondbacks TV team is the best too, Mark Grace and other guy are hilarious. Yankees are my team, but loving catching Arizona games whenever poss.

Ummm... hate to break it to you, but they're both gone. Grace was booted for getting his 2nd DUI (but they've brought him in as a roving instructor for the minor leaguers since he's been a man about it and is working to get over his issues) and the other guy, Sutton, was booted for being an all around dick and refusing to listen to his bosses.

The new guys are the guy who used to be the backup host for ESPN Baseball Tonight and the guy who managed the Dbacks to the 2001 World Series win, Bob Brenly (who was in the Dbacks booth from 1998-2000).

I miss having Gracie in the booth, he was awesome as an announcer. I hope he keeps his shiat together this time.

Nooooooo! My heart is broken. They were god damn excellent, regardless of whatever personal shortcomings they may have.

Just want to post an example of McCarthy's genius. He posted this about SNL tonight:

"can anyone explain the allure of The Californians as a recurring SNL skit? I like a lot of different comedy but jesus those are hot garbage "

One of the replies he retweeted with his response:

"it's a comedy sketch not a prison shower RT @RobH_MLB I think its one of those things you need to open yourself up to and don't fight it"
