David Wright plays 3rd base when he is not on the DL

Why do I know this nonsense now?

What a weird name.

234 years ... 3 months and 28 days.  Let's not shortchange the man.

It also listed a 3rd baseman as a pitcher.

Who would ask this?  Who would care?

Thrash Master Flash: David Wright plays 3rd base when he is not on the DL


Allegedly. He's not been observed in the wild in some time.

This is neither news nor is it amusing.  Thanks for telling me this stupid information.

Well, it's always nice to be able to identify the people with no sense of humor and an inexplicable urge to ensure everyone knows it.

This headline made me chortle.  Thanks.

Okay Mr. Grumpypants, let me explain why this is interesting and news worthy.  Basically people are buying these stupid Alexas like they got farking Majel Barrett-Roddenberry on their farking coffee table, and people wonder how they work, hence, an article.  It's almost like the media's job is to inform.  I know that's a hard concept to understand given the fact that that's never been the case in recent memory.

Alexa is a stupid invention and you should feel bad for defending it.  I don't need to talk to a device when I am at home to find out stupid information like how old a baseball player is

I have a fantastic sense of humor and my mother assures me that I am in fact a nice person.
