re: PM & The Mental Game - tirebiter
[quote]PM looks tired and uninterested.[/quote] Nah, he looked frustrated by a long stream of events over a 3 day series that could have ended differently with some better mental acuity and execution by the team. At that point grinding on guys served no purpose. ...

re: Where I Think CPM/Dunn Are Missing It - tirebiter
LSU doesn't have a 4th starter, can't remember, if ever, they had one. What they could use is 1-2 guys who can go long relief, ie 3-4 innings, then have some shut down go to guys beyond that. Easy to ask for, hard to find and apparently develop @ LSU. I mean, the team doesn't even have a designat...

re: Baseball Game 3: LSU 2, Ole Miss 8 | final - tirebiter
So what is the real deal with this team? Are they the most unclutch team ever? Has the pitching staff lost their minds? Since the team is not really inexperienced at this point is there a significant talent deficiency? I just shake my head about these games now because it's not worth getting worked...

re: Am I the only one burnt out since basketball and now with baseball? - tirebiter
[quote]Baseball had minimal expectations (lost 8 of 9 position starters) and we're in line for a regional host right now. [/quote] Isn't it really 7 of 8 position players, and a few who DH, and played multiple positions during the season like Foster and Chinea? Maybe it was the equivalent of los...

re: Getting bored with Mainieri - tirebiter
[quote]Did he? Wofford is a freshman that probably on 3-0 counts in high school last year got the green light and CPM was telling him to take two strikes before swinging which is the right thing to do in that situation. [/quote] He is in for his glove, do you really think nothing was said to him ...

re: Getting bored with Mainieri - tirebiter
[quote]Whose fault is that? He should have forseen guys leaving and recruited to that. That is Paul's fault. I don't blame injuries on him.[/quote] Yes, as Paul has unlimited roster spots and schollies to offer high level position player recruits who are willing to ride the pine and reject other ...

re: Physician's Office Logic - tirebiter
[quote]Wife has a good GP that she's been going to for 7 or 8 years. We've been pleased with their service and quality and so last year I decided to actually establish a GP and called their office to get appt. Here's how the conversation in October went: [/quote] I don't think it is much differe...

re: A List of (Potentially) Good MLPs to Invest In - tirebiter
[quote]It's quite a shock when someone thinks they have a 4K capital gain from selling ones of these... and in reality they have a 17K gain, most of which is ordinary. [/quote] About as much fun as selling rental property for a gain, then dealing with depreciation recapture and taxation, which is...

re: A List of (Potentially) Good MLPs to Invest In - tirebiter
[quote]Now, since MLPs pay out most of their profits as dividends[/quote] Most, if not all, of the companies listed in your post pay partnership distributions, not dividends, which may or may not be taxable to unit holders who will receive K-1's. I own SE (C-corp), APU, EPD, and MMP bought back ...

re: Roth IRA advice. - tirebiter
[quote]Vanguard is crap, by the way. Their customer service is the worst and their funds, while "low cost", perform in the middle at best. Fidelity is even worse.[/quote] No, not even close on returns plus many of Vanguard's managed funds have outperformed index funds due to low costs. If someon...

re: The 33 Best BBQ Joints in America? - tirebiter
I've had brisket twice at Heirloom Market BBQ and it was on the dry side, need to try again. My wife ordered the spicy Korean BBQ pork sandwich and it was killer, as is the spicy kimchi side. Not on the list but have had brisket at Sugarfire in St Louis recently, it was excellent. Had brisket...

re: 5 Guys is pricey for a fast food burger - tirebiter
I've eaten at one near home 4x and the fries are always very soggy, burgers were very average at the price point. Ate at one in VA awhile back and both the burger and fries were much better. 5G's is nothing special to me. Then again, price wise it is about the same as Chick-fil-a and I don't care...

re: SECN, SECN+, WatchESPN issues which need to be fixed - tirebiter
Like some others, have UVerse 50 MBs download with ethernet cable to a good desktop and TV downstairs with a Firestick and it is normally very good, Saturday double header no issues. Sunday tuned in around 4th inning on the computer, got audio and no video. Rebooted, same, rebooted, same. Went an...

re: Bottom line....it's the coaches responsibility - tirebiter
[quote]Jones probably needed to boot a couple of guys from the team a long time ago. [/quote] I even wonder what he is going to do with two bigs that aren't good enough to play major college ball and a thick "tweener" who has no position and is not effective when on the court. Those 3 have be...

re: How much do you care about LSU hoops and baseball vs football? - tirebiter
Football 55% Baseball 40% Basketball 5% Success tends to drive more interest in most sports but even during the fall off with Archer and in the Hallman era I still was big into football. My wife is a die hard LSU basketball fan. Multiple basketball games this season I left the room when the g...

re: Disgusting performance by LSU - tirebiter
[quote] quote: If Ben Simmons is the best player in the NCAA, why does he slap a guy's arm, who is already past him, in a lazy attempt at a steal when he has 2 fouls and just got into the game?? It's unfair to expect a kid to play at a higher level than the rest of the team, including...

re: When is one considered a "millionaire" ? - tirebiter
I recall reading he had 3 houses. Those are like a dollar to him. The comparison to Buffet isn't literal, just stating not all ultra wealthy people spend a ton of money compared to net worth. Seriously, someone shoots for 10M to retire and if they get to 8M and decide that's plenty people will in...
