DRT 6-20 Where the F is the Offense edition. - The Darrow Kid on 6/20/11 at 12:40 pmAfter looking like they turned the corner, the Reds shite the bed at home against the Canadians scoring only 4 runs all weekend. The yanks come into town after drawing the AL East in inter-league play. Hopefully the offense can help out Cueto who ERA is 1.68 but only has 4 W's to show for it. ...
DRT The WOW that was a turrible defensive performance edition - The Darrow Kid on 5/18/11 at 10:26 amArroyo vs Morton tonight.
Reds continue to win due to the cubbies being absolutely horrendous. Volq overcame his usual big first inning to k 9 batters and allow 1h thru 6 innings. All this winning makes Datdudebp wanna.......[img]http://www.gifsoup.com/view7/2505516/brandon-phillips-dugout-d...

Gardere Area - Pinnacle Entertainment - The Darrow Kid on 10/26/10 at 11:38 amI'm very interested in how this casino will effect the real estate value of the gardere area. With construction due to be finished by the end of 2011 the construction crews will need somewhere to live. Then the casino employees should take over from there. It would really be nice if that area was...

Capital Gains Tax on the Sale of My Home - The Darrow Kid on 9/1/10 at 3:31 pmI started construction on my home in January of 2009 and moved in in May 2009.
Now my question is when will the 24 months grace period be over? Jan or May?
Next how much (%) can I expect to fork over to uncle sam if its under 24 months? I'm expecting to only make around 30k....
DRT - Leake to the Pen/Owings DFA'd - The Darrow Kid on 8/17/10 at 7:17 pmFirst of 9 games on the West Coast
I'm really surprised that they DFA'd Owings instead of Danny Flatbill but neither would be huge losses. I like Leake moving to the pen. This will help limit his innings pl...

Javan Felix (BBALL New Orleans Fab 5) - The Darrow Kid on 2/15/10 at 2:49 pmI know he's only a soph but wondering how he's been doing this year and if he's leaning anywhere. I watched his AAU team (panthers i believe) play two years ago and the kid was amazing....
Breast Milk - The Darrow Kid on 11/11/09 at 4:10 pmWhat does it taste like? I've heard it taste like regular milk but sweeter.
The reason I ask is once my wife starts breast feeding can I kill two birds with one stone and put it in my coffee and replace the sugar and cream. This tough economy has got me thinking on new ways to be resourceful....
GF being a shot girl. - The Darrow Kid on 10/22/09 at 12:38 pmSo we have this guy who works in our office and his fiance is a shot girl for a promotions company. He says that it's no big deal and he has nothing to worry about. What does the OT think?...
Baseball's unwritten rules. - The Darrow Kid on 10/1/09 at 9:44 amWatching the reds and cardinal lastnight got me thinking about how dumb some of these unwritten rules are. Last night Stubbs stole second while the Reds were up six runs. Smoltz became agitated and Dusty proceeded to throw up three fingers letting him know it was only the third inning.
Do you t...
