    JDFIII got a reaction from Goober Pyle in One more time...more prayers needed   
    I have prayed for your peace, and your wife's recovery. I have also prayed for wisdom and understanding of the staff in charge.

    Hey my Falcons family. Ol' Goober needs your prayers, good thoughts, and just some good, positive vibes....more importantly, Mrs. Goober needs them.
    Today is the BIG surgery day, her reconstruction. It's a 10-12 hour surgery, with a 3 day hospital stay afterwards...including a night (possibly 2) in the ICU.
    I know she's in good hands...both the Father's and, by extension, the surgeon's as well. Never hurts to have prayers and positivity flowing your way, though.
    Thanks in advance! I'll update once I have the info....
    Love to all!!
    Goober

    Top 3 for me:
    1. Edwards - Could be a star given the right development. He has the physical attributes more so than anyone else in this draft. Also, the hightest bust factor of my top 3.
    2. Wiseman - Has the size and movement skills to be a great big man. Good feet too.
    3. Toppin - Ultra Athletic, and a 15 and 10 player as a floor.

    If it were to happen (which I hope we succeed and not fail), I hope that Morris becomes the interim head coach and becomes the official head coach after turning the team around

    I definitely won't miss seeing Folty look like a fawn learning to walk at the plate.

    JDFIII reacted to Iron Saint in Larry Warford anybody?   
    Honestly, I’m hoping that’s what we do with the $7.75M we got from releasing Warford.
    Ruiz is going to be our center, McCoy is going to slide over to RG.

    This would be a heaven send for all of us. I also think Baseball being the first to start up will bring in a new generation of fans. Here's to hoping.....

    JDFIII reacted to Goober Pyle in Prayers Requested   
    Hey guys!
    I debated with myself to even start this thread. Y'all know me as Goober here on the boards and a few know me in real life. I'm not one to usually share much of what's going on in my personal life...even with those I know off the boards. And the Lord knows the everyone has SOMETHING going on that affects them or their loved ones each day. With that said, even though I don't know many of you on here, I still feel like this is an online home away from home....almost like the bar in "Cheers". I come here many times during each day, checking for new threads and replies in current ones that I follow. To sum up....I feel welcome here. 
    My family got some bad news a few weeks ago that I didn't share with anyone. My wife has breast cancer. She found a lump in her left breast on a Sunday night and scheduled an appointment with her OB/GYN the very next day. After ultrasounds, 3D mammograms, and a biopsy, we got the news we dreaded. It wasn't completely unexpected as her mother is a breast cancer survivor, but it was still a bit of a shock. My wife is only 46 and we've been together for for 29 years...married for 24. She is without a doubt my very best friend and my soul mate. 
    Now, with that said, it's not all bleak. We caught this very early and we're told that it's the most treatable kind of breast cancer. She goes this Friday to have the port installed and chemo treatments start next week. She will have a total of 6 treatments that take place every 3 weeks. Once the chemo ends, she will have surgery. 
    Through all this, she has been an absolute rock. She refuses to get down and has said repeatedly that a positive attitude is a must. She will beat this.
    I'm coming to you guys asking for prayers for her and our family. If you don't pray, please send out some good thoughts and vibes our way.  
    I'll still be here. Goob's not going anywhere. 
     
    Much love to you all and thanks for being here.....

    JDFIII reacted to AUTiger7222 in Pray For Gritz   
    Everyone please say a small prayer for @GhostofGritz. I'm not gonna post the details on here, he's welcome to if he wishes. But let's just remember him and his family right now as they deal with a family tradegy. I know we all get on each other's nerves at times on here and we last out sometimes but at the end of the day we're one big family and we all lift each other up in times of hardship. I've experienced it and I've seen it happen with others on here. Gritz, we're praying for you brother!!

    If I've never mentioned it before, I stopped watching Folty's starts live last April. I find out the score and then skim through them later. My blood pressure has never been lower.

    I really doubt it. I suspect he purposely leaves some noted guys off to generate controversy. He left out Nick Madrigal too. 
    That said, I don't consider him the Kiper of baseball, I do think he's a pretty good evaluator when he actually goes and looks at the players. 
    That said, Pache really can be that good. He'd be in my top 10.

    So Schlenk appears to be adding veteran depth with an emphasis on defense to support his young developing team. Right now we have no bad contracts on our team and still have an opportunity get a top 5 pick and sign a max player.

    Manfred's proven that he isn't fit for the role of Commissioner. He needs to go.
