This decent into failure in life would be better if he had made a bit more ascent first.

descent. There is very little about this guy that I would call decent.

He's just asking to get pelted with coins at every game now. Well....if he ever plays.
 
2013-05-29 09:44:51 AM  
I didn't even read the story.  The picture alone told me he is a colossal douchecanoe.

The rays have a tendency to draft high ceiling assholes hoping they can fix the asshole part. That being said, he looks like he's only a drug conviction and a prison rape away from joining the Ayran Brotherhood.

Just the right amount of schadenfreude for a depressing Wednesday morning.  Thanks, subs!

The team's already got a rapist on it. I don't think they really care.

the guy's a meth-head.   while i will never excuse his actions,  the personal hell he is going to live in the coming years is...more than payback for his behavior now.

It appears that the Rays have duplicated history and drafted another Josh Hamilton. Can't wait to hear his redemption story either.

I didn't get him.

But yeah, Josh Lueke.

He's cute. His attitude also screams "I'm so super gay but I won't consciously accept it so I'm going to act like a mysoginist douche do people will think I'm cool."

No....I'm pretty sure he's just a misogynist douche.

What is it about the Devil Rays (yeah, I still call 'em that, so fark you) that they can't pass up every tattooed-up deadhead made available to them?

Those types of players are cheap.

It's actually fairly smart. Most teams don't want these guys because they could alienate the fans. But the Rays don't have any fans, thanks to the Bridge of Death. So they can get talented "character issue" guys somewhat cheap.

This douche came out of high school as a power bat with some potential downside in defense... but scouts were impressed with his maturity and attitude. Character was an asset... not an issue.

And cheap is relative... but where he was drafted woulda gotten him around $1.5m signing bonus. Not bad for a HS kid.

Elijah Dukes was Josh Hamilton 2.0. This guy is Josh Hamilton 2.01.

Sounds like the shiat my cousin used to pull. He was a great ball player and in high school MLB teams were checking him out. The night before a big game where a bunch of scouts were going to look at him he got trashed and shiat the bed the next day. Offers dried up and he had a nice trip to the bottom.

Honey, I love you, I think you're a terrific girl, but you have clothes like a farking dickhead.

If a bridge keeps fans away then they weren't fans. Florida just isn't a home for baseball fans... there aren't enough to support the teams they have.

Compare the reaction of fans there to the one you'd have in real baseball towns. Build a stadium across a bridge in Chicago or St. Louis and you'd better build one big-ass bridge- you'll have a massive horde of people driving across that sucker to get there.

Would the Cardinals sell out all the time if their stadium was at Scott AFB (and it was as ugly as Tropicana Field)?  Because that commute is about the same as the one from downtown Tampa to Tropicana Field.

Quite possibly. Getting to the heart of downtown can be a real pain in the ass.

The Cardinals fan base is a special case- the last two games were in Kansas City and the stadium there was at least half full of Cardinals fans. They'll drive anywhere.

Hah! It's my favorite front office story:

Press: 'Hey, this guy is a convicted rapist'

Mariners front office hacks: 'we, we did not know that. Really, no idea.'

Tacoma pitching coach: 'Yes you did know, because I asked you if it had all been cleared up or not'.

Couple folks got fired behind that shiat.

Well, technically, he's not, which is part of the problem. He plead down to a lesser charge that removed the sexual component (false imprisonment, IIRC).

I wasnt around here in 2008

but I wonder if it made the news here when  Julio Castillo was deported for throwing a ball at a fans head

Why can't he be both?

Its amazing how money and time away from your parents can change that character in a hurry.
 
2013-05-30 07:43:03 AM  
Yeah, there's just no way that this guy isn't going to spend life in jail for at least a year or two.
