The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Vacations, yeah, I remember them...  I missed the sweep of the Angels because of work, did not see one minute of play live.  Fuck work!  I am going to spend the entire afternoon and evening watching that series.

I wouldn't know, didn't have any.  They can't grill a steak worth a shit at the Biltmore though.  First time in my life I've had to send one back and ask for a new steak.  Grits and collard greens in Atlanta were terrible too.  All in all, it was not a good food trip.  Local wines weren't awful though.

Scenery was spectacular though.  And Asheville is wacky hippy town.  So the people watching was good.

And both Bregman and Teoscar Hernandez hitting homers today for Fresno

The 2 of them are currently a combined 10 for 17 with 2 doubles, triple, 3 homeruns, 2 walks, 3 Ks, 9 runs scored and 9 RBIs at AAA

T9:

Devenski in for the non-save...

Frazier pops out F4
Lawrie with a rule book double to RF
Avila walks
Garcia grounds into 5U-3 double play

Astros get the shutout...win 5-0!

Astros win and are officially ahead in the wild card standings.  Who back on May 22, at 17-28 had them as a wild card team on July 1st?

Most of us, we are a pretty optimistic bunch.

Oh wow, just saw Toronto lost in 19 innings

I watched that entire game. Tito Francona opted to bring in his next day starter to pitch, who ended up throwing 83 pitches over five innings for the W. Toronto, being managed by the bench coach since Gibbons got run in the second frame, opted to use position players to pitch. Two pitched. Carlos Santana hit a home run off of Darwin Barney for the winning run.

So Trevor Bauer went 5 plus innings. Does Francona move all his starters up a day, or do they have a spot starter they can slip in?

I would assume they've got a spot starter in the pen, someone like a Scott Feldman, or they'll bring someone up from AAA for one or two starts before the AS break.

Was more going for the pointing out of how many players were dramatically under performing and how this run is a result of the things correcting themselves.  HH was more trying to say that Correa was never going to perform to expectations.

Zach McAlister is in their bully and is listed as today's starter.

Good BBQ in Asheville?
North Carolina BBQ is an affront to God and man. Blobs of nondescript meat floating in a bucket of brownish liquid. Just horrendous. South Carolina BBQ, on the other hand, is really quite intriguing.

In what alternate universe did you experience NC BBQ?  Non-descript?  There is a very specific definition: pork, roasted directly over open coals.  Bucket of brown liquid?  Proper NC BBQ is picked directly off the roasting pig.  What you're saying is akin to saying Texas BBQ is non-descript meat boiled in a pot of ketchup on the stove.

A couple of years back I spent two months in Wilmington, NC helping to build a couple of power stations. I was treated to "the best BBQ in the state" by my clients and it was just as I described. Yes, it was pulled pork, but it was literally soaking in the brown liquid as were some ribs. Just awful. A few weeks later, I went to a different, trendier place hoping for better but ended up with the same fare. Perhaps in the western part of the state they do it differently, but I was assured at both places that this was "authentic NC BBQ".

S.C. is also mostly pulled pork, but slow roasted with a mustard based sauce that's very nice.

None of it compares to Texas BBQ which DOES NOT require any sauce, but it can be used provided it is not too sweet like that KC mess and has some kick. I had a BBQ pit made it Houston and shipped to CA because one couldn't find a good offset smoker in CA years ago. Now one can get BBQ in CA, but it mostly is the sweet KC style which I'm not fond of.

There is an enormous and quite contentious divide between eastern and western North Carolina barbecue.

NC style is ALWAYS pulled pork, typically with no "sauce".  You add some spicy vinegar over it once it's on your plate, but you NEVER sauce it beforehand.  If you got something out of a bucket of liquid, it was about as far from authentic NC BBQ as you can get.

Yes, I read what he wrote.  I was explaining why what he got was not typical.  Do you have a point other than nipping at my heels?
