  1. I see there is demand for these on the Jazz Messengers sale. I'll part with them to the first who PMs me, $12 each postage paid in the US. If someone from Yuropa wants them we'll figure out shipping cost to settle.
  2. Anyone else like the label Red Records?

    Sal Nistico's Empty Bed is a must-have IMHO. There were two Jim Snidero releases I've had for years and years, been a long time since I listened but I am sure they were very enjoyable. Awhile ago I bought a comp I think it was titled Hard Bop Today or something similar. It seemed the only way to hear the Stafford James Ensemble which included Frank Strozier and Harold Mabern in the band. That one still seems very hard to locate.

  4. Thanks for the heads up this sounds like a fun read. The one and only time I saw Frishberg was when he opened for the Ray Brown Trio - my first or second time seeing Gene Harris - at the Blue Note. I had no idea who he was but he certainly entertained and I went to Sally White's place the next weekend and picked up one of his Concord LPs.

    Another spring training, another injury for Jacoby Ellsbury: https://nypost.com/2019/02/13/yankees-wont-be-seeing-jacoby-ellsbury-for-a-while/ Plantar fasciitis this time. Will they at some point just release him?

    I fear you could be right but I think the best thing for the players would be shortening the time to free agency rather than fighting over a handful of players who go an extra year under team control than they should. Universal DH also creates a number of higher paying jobs. The fact that the luxury tax is biting in to elite salaries ... that was the whole idea so the players can't be surprised. I don't think there's any legit evidence of anything approaching 'collusion' when some high revenue teams pick a budget and stick to it.

    All minor league teams have rosters which consist of players under the control of the parent team. Is it that way in English "football"? Furthermore the very best AAA teams in a given year consist of a few guys who are on the cusp of actual major league careers, several who are past that point but hope springs eternal, and the rest will get no more than a cup of coffee in the big leagues because ... they really really aren't that good at all, compared to big league players. The jump is enormous between AAA and the majors. This is beyond apples to oranges its completely ludicrous.
  11. I think I've learned not to be surprised about any of it. People are complicated but I will say I don't think retroactive changing of statutes of limitation serve are particularly fair. They should be changed going forward, yes but this is mostly a gift to personal injury attorneys.
  12. (RIP) Is Jack Wilson (Atlantic & Blue Note 60s pianist) dead?

    This was discussed over a month ago.

    Yeah I was thinking about Reggie and this in particular as I wrote this, and yet ... check out the end of the clip. Reggie is in fact hauling ass around 2B, as much as he ever did. Nowadays there'd be an epic bat flip, stand at the plate, and 3:30 minute trot around the bases.

    And not least because hitters ran around the bases after a home run. no styling, no profiling (and I love Papi's trot still).
  16. The USPS SUCKS

    I know it can't just be me ... lately I've had the experience of items that don't get scanned until they suddenly show up, but this latest takes the cake. Order placed, Priority Mail, with Da Bastards Tuesday March 10th. Shipping confirmation received Wednesday March 11. See the attachment for how the USPS handled it since then. Yes, 11 days for it to be scanned at the main sort center in Chicago! And 13 days to arrive, and they have the temerity to call it "On-Time"!! Any other horror stories?

    Yeah I was just browsing a seller on discogs and every one I saw was at least $25 if not well more, including a 45!

    There is a huge performance difference between pinch hitters in the NL and DHs. There may be one pinch hitter on the bench who is a power threat. Maybe one other with a sort-of knack for getting a base hit? That doesn't remotely compare to what a league average DH does in the AL. And let's not forget that games that go long can end up with the bench used up and a relief pitcher having to swing the lumber. Or be strictly forbidden from swinging the lumber, as the case may be.
  19. 2018-19 Hot Stove League

    Shifts have existed forever. There should never be a rule saying that defenses cannot move anyone anywhere if that's where the hitter is likely to hit it. Teach hitters to bunt, hit it the other way, or hit it out of the park where no one can be stationed.

    Do PEDs make receivers extra slippery and impossible to cover one on one? Because, you know, that's basically Edelman's skill set right?
  21. 2018-19 Hot Stove League

    I think it's the latter. Just because players think they should get record-setting contracts and aren't doesn't mean owners are colluding in any way. It takes at least two to tango and the players aren't jumping at what they do get offered, you end up with major talent sitting around while their friends are reporting to camp. It will be interesting to see whether the next negotiation with the player's association is ugly or leads to a work stoppage of some sort. It took a while but the ideas they agreed to with a sort of soft salary cap is finally biting into the salaries at the very top of the market.

    Here's a trade rumor the Yankees should f-ing jump at: Per Buster Olney, the Giants need outfield help desperately and might take Ellsbury off the Yanks hands in exchange for SP Johnny Cueto. Cueto just had TJ surgery is out for 2019, owed $68 mil, and Ellsbury has two years plus a contractual buyout for about $45 million. You know if they both equally sucked it would be a fine trade but Cueto has made 292 starts pitching to a 1.19 career WHIP. He'd be 33 making his return from TJ surgery. Ellsbury is, at best, replacement-level right now. I have to ardently hope this is purely Olney making shit up.

    Am I totally off or wasn't it "out of bounds, clock stops to next snap" regardless of time of game?
  24. 2017 NFL Season

    And what precisely was the rationale stated? Games that only have sixty minutes of "action" should have as little action as possible so we can get them over with? Does anyone doubt that there would be more scores at the end of a half or opportunities for such if the old rules were kept? The least they could have done is made the rules the same for both halfs and have the clock stop with five minutes left, period.
