  1. Guarantee that we'll have our 2nd unanimous inductee next year in Jeter.
  2. Could the intention be to move on from Duvall and have Markakis fill that role as a platoon or rotational/rest and bench player. For the difference in salary, I'd rather have Markakis. If so, we would still be able to make another move. I agree with K26dp that this is a great deal for us. I guarantee that there are GM's out there kicking themselves for not making this deal happen for their team. He's not my first choice, or probably my 10th, but he brings stability and a veteran presence.
  3. He should have gotten the nod last year above Teheran. Fun fact about Teheran and opening day starts. He's tied for 4th with Rick Mahler for most Opening Day starts (5) in franchise history. Glavine and Smoltz are tied for 5th with 4 each.
  4. Had no clue or I would have. My son is in the midst of a SW phase/possible lifestyle.
  5. I could break out my old "El Oso Blanco" t-shirt.
  6. A few local shots Fall colors through rain drops on my truck's drivers side window.

  8. In October, we took a family vacation to Disney. On the way down, we stopped in St. Augustine to visit some family that we haven't seen in a few years. First two are from the St. Augustine area.

The Younglings got to battle either Darth Vader or Kylo Ren depending on which group they were in. My son drew Vader.

Turkey in Cades Cove Turkey by Jason, on Flickr "The Tree" in Cades Cove taken in early morning light as the fog burns off The Tree by Jason, on Flickr Challenger from the American Eagle Foundation. This is the bald eagle that flies at the Super Bowl, World Series, NASCAR events, National Championship games, Presidential inaugurations, and other major events. Pretty impressive to be a few feet from him. AEF - Bald Eagle - Challenger 1 by Jason, on Flickr Sunrise from Clingman's Dome in the GSMNP Clingmans Dome Sunrise 1 by Jason, on Flickr
  11. The past 6 months or so have been crazy so I haven't had a ton of time to get out and photograph as much as I'd like. I've also been pretty lazy in sharing pictures here, but here are some from my spring trip to the Smokies.

  12. So my son has quite a few items on his list that range from Transformers to a lantern to a bed for the cat. Back over the summer, I took advantage of Toys R Us going out of business and loaded up on about $400 worth of Star Wars toys when they were 60% off. My parents and I split them up for Christmas this year. Santa is bringing him some of what's on his list, but the big ticket item for him is a little robot that he's seen on TV.
  13. I especially like the possibility of Castellanos with the added flexibility he'd give us. His history at 3B would be great if Donaldson's recent injury history pops up. Even if it doesn't we could still spell Donaldson and Swanson/Albies on the same day. I think Castellanos makes a lot of sense if sacraficing some defense is in play. Just depends on the price.
  14. Thanks! Work and life has been pretty crazy the past 6 months or so and I haven't been on the boards much. We're in our winter break at work so hopefully things will settle down some.
  15. CarGo is a meh at best for me. I think he would still be serviceable as a 4th OF for someone, just not us though unless the OF market is just too pricey. A minor league offer with an invite to ST wouldn't upset me, but anything more than that is a no thanks.
