Based on what I saw on the Weather Channel, Cleveland is expected to have a high of 49 and the chance of rain is 100%.
I am thinking this is a positive thing for the Romney campaign as it could discourage voting in that heavily blue area.

Newest rumor is that the A's Andrew Bailey has moved to the top of the Rangers wish list.
San Diego wants a lefty (Holland or Erlin (AA)) more than likely. That could stymie the deal for Bell.
I just know it's clear to everybody that their bullpen is a disaster right now and they need help if ...

What the frick, Ron? You're killing me. The Rangers are only one game out of the Wild Card despite your idiotic managerial choices. Case in point:
1) Tying run at the plate in the 8th. 2 out. Runner on first. You leave Andruw Jones in to hit even though he is batting less than .200 since like May....

So here it is. This is most definitely the Rangers season on the line. In my opinion, if the Rangers don't win this series, they are more than likely done this year.
The Rangers will send out the dependable Scott Feldman (10-4, 3.91 ERA) versus Joe Saunders (9-6,5.07 ERA).
I like the Rangers ...

The Tigers were the latest team to get "Hunterized". Big Tommy went 7, giving up a run. His ERA now stands at a nice round 2.00 ERA.
This guy is legit and he is really helping the Rangers make a push in the AL West.
I still think the Rangers need a bat though.

Gentlemen of the Money Talk Board, I have a question regarding real estate.
I'm interested in a place on the north side of Chicago. How do I figure out if it is a foreclosure/bank owned? Is there a way to do this?
Also, I am just curious about FHA loans. What are the qualifications?

Okay..so I got into Best Buy at $17.95. My thought process was that its main competitor was weakened to a point of no return and it was cheap on a forward P/E basis ($2.30/share was the low end of FY 2009 guidance, making for a P/E around 8 or so)
Well, Best Buy is $28.56 right now. That would me...
