Now that I’m prime time, I have to censor you guys. Starting tomorrow, all comments will be moderated by me before showing up. Any commentor who curses will be warned and then subsequently banned after a second infraction. Excessive negative commentary will be banned. Anyone bashing race, women, religion, etc will be banned immediately.

Some more bad news: since the donation model isn’t working, angrybeavs is resorting to ads starting May 1st. I have a deal in place with an ad service. The ads will be obtrusive [so you click on them]. Also starting in May, there will be a premium section that’s behind a paywall, and that will cost $200 per year.

Go Beavs.

        Wait.

        If I give someone money does that mean I can curse?

        And what is a curse word or bashing? Obviously, writing fuck (and all derivations) about some pasty, self-righteous Christian pussy creep should be against the rules. But what if I copied and pasted Mencken? He essentially does the same thing without specifically doing the same thing.

        We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.

    Regarding the premium section: can you make a deal with a company that sells poorly designed and overpriced beaver swag and give us back a $100 credit for said crap? And does it come with a pair of Hip Hop Hooray socks? Or maybe an “Angrys Great? #damstraight” t shirt?

    Just in case you didn’t see this yesterday

    @ Angry – re Ghostery & Youtube: Ghostery has added a new category called Customer Interaction which has what I’m calling a subcategory called YouTube. If you unblock that you’ll be O.K. with YouTube.

    To be clear, Youtube works for me with Customer Interaction blocked and Youtube allowed.

    I don’t use facebook so I don’t know about that one.

    Now, will those credentials permit you inside the WBB locker room? With camera?

    Oh yeah, please send me a dozen of the “Angry’s Great! #Damn Straight!” shirts. And a pack of the “Lindsay’s Angry Beav” maple bars. Just love the new Shopping area on the revised site.

    I use Ghostery & AdBlock while using YouTube and I have had no problems at all. The only real problem is that I’ve asked angry 4 times to let me on the site without having to go through the spam filter…either he’s ignoring me or has missed the emails. I’m making the fifth request public.

          I think this is part of your problem here AA: reading comprehension. You don’t read statements all the way and/or ignore important punctuation, and then jump to your own conclusions without actually digesting what’s been said.

          You also take statements out of context and then apply them to separate topics down the line, as well as take comments people make pertaining to minor specific things and then generalize ie;

          Angry “I hate how Casey has them bunt with a runner on first, historically it’s such a low probability tactic.”

          Angry@Angry interpretation “Pat Casey is a horrible coach who the game has passed by, and needs to be replaced”

          You make so many leaps and stretches, I think you’ve missed your calling as a Fox News Anchor.

            Take a dose of your own medicine. Where did I ever say angry says Casey is a horrible coach who’s been passed by? My only point about Casey is he’s the best coach the schools ever had in any sport. Complaining about him is pointless.

            “Casey has warts” “Casey is slow to change, like Riley”.

            Generally, let’s vote, do people agree with you that Casey has weaknesses, or do they agree with me that he’s the greatest coach in school history, and criticizing him is pointless.

            I’ve been to hundreds of baseball games at Goss. I’m pretty confident in my beliefs in Casey, and very confident that Beaver Nation as a whole sides with me.

            Well then I won’t 100% guarantee that he won’t start even though others have reasoned with me that this style of offense combined with implementation and a vast swath of inexperience would cause attrition that would certainly place him in that position. Because I know we’re only a snap or two away from him playing at any given moment.

            Or I can put it in terms you might understand.

            Nuh uh! Gary Andersen knows more about football than you do. Therefore, if he makes him run backward for a safety, it’s the right call. You don’t get to question GA because I believe an appeal to authority is a valid form of discussion. But beyond that, discuss away.

            Dude I’m just gonna say this. If you can’t question Casey even in your own mind for batting Gabe Clark in the clean up spot then you’ve lost any shred of credibility whatsoever. Do you even watch baseball without orange colored glasses? I’m not gonna get into the bunting with a runner on 1st and 1 out. To me that depends on the situation.

            Whiskey…. Gave Clark is not Ellsbury, he’ll Dallas Buck probably could’ve hit better than Clark. My point about Casey, and the entire staff is this… I’ve played for one of the staff members, and he knows more about baseball than you could ever imagine. Trying to criticize the staff, or point out “warts” and “weaknesses”, is pointless. It’s most likely the best coaching staff in the country. Casey is the best coach in school history. So what is the point of trying to point out weaknesses? There really isn’t one.

            So what you are telling me is that EVERY move the baseball teams coaching staff makes is not to be questioned? Every move, judgment or call they make is perfect? Is that the message you’re trying to convey?

            Angry is right. He has flaws. We ALL do. I’m certain Pat Casey would be the first person to tell you he isn’t perfect.

            I’m not going to argue with you that the coaching staff isn’t top notch (although I may concerning Yeskie). But to argue that they can’t be questioned on moves they make or don’t make is completely asinine. Do you do your job perfectly? Never made a mistake? No one has ever questioned any of your decisions?

            Umm… no. Games are finite. That’s why you can apply probability to them and be correct most of the time. Putting the players in the position to execute the probabilities correctly is what the coach does. If you can’t see the numbers, that’s not because we can’t imagine them. That’s a you thing.

            I guess we can add mind projection to your large stack of fallacies. You’re not going to get above the Mendoza line with that bat.

        Agreed.

        What happens if they don’t win? Or maybe UCONN gets this all the time, and it doesn’t bother them. Or maybe they never get it, and it might be a distraction.

        I think she’s earned the right to go out the way she wants.

        Meanwhile, it’s the front court that will have to do most of the work. Give them confidence enough to go out there and give what they’re surely going to take.

        Live by the three!

      I thought you were doing an “April Fool’s”, but I saw the highlights on You Tube. Crushed them 10-1, good to get back over .500 in league. They need to stay there.

        10-1 is nice alright, but Eckert going down after the Rasmussen news is nothin’ to joke about. We all realize this team was thin on pitching before April 1; but now??

        Who is gonna come out of the woodwork to help these guys get to even Angry’s 12th to 20th? I suppose my top candidates, in no particular order, are: Church, Fehmel, Britton, and Heimlich. If Eckert is out for an extended time, will Casey see Jake as the Friday night guy……ugh.

        I don’t have much hope for Pomeroy, big disappointment so far. I had high hopes for that big lug. The rest of the staff is pretty much unknown, at least to me. That is assuming Engelbrekt and Hickey are needed as relief/closer.

    With Drew getting tommy john, that’s 4 guys now? Tweedt, Martinek, Cary and Drew.

    It’s an epidemic with young pitchers these days and in pro ball. Recent stats have 25% of active mlb pitchers have had tommy john.

    I really think it’s pitchers throwing too much at a young age combined with throwing breaking balls. Some kids can throw breaking balls but my issue is that coaches keep kids out there for far too long. When a kid’s tired, there’s no form and they’ll torque their elbows even more to get the ball to break( also many dad coaches don’t know how to teach a proper curveball either). Then when they get older and are able to throw harder, the ucl’s already frayed and it eventually tears. Not much a college coach can do since the kid was already well down that path. Just a matter of time.

      I have a nine year old who switched to Junior Baseball from Little League. I was stunned to find out this is the first year Junior Baseball is going to pitch counts, they used to just count inninings, which seems useless considering how many walks there are at that age.

      Agreed. Every HS pitcher should be a fastball/changeup pitcher. That’s all that’s needed. Learn the other stuff later when the arm is fully developed.

        No kidding, “that’s all that’s needed”
        Learn to control those two pitches, I mean control as in paint the black, and you are set for HS and have a foundation for College.

    Pyrrhic victory last night. Drew’s injury is devastating. The one spot with no real depth. If Eckhert is seriously hurt, this could be a long season.
    TM with another throwing error. He looks a lot bigger this year. Has the increased muscle tightened his natural throwing motion? He was money with his throws his first two years.
    Martinek now becomes the huge X factor. Can he pitch extended innings?

    The BuildingTheDam report from today’s open practice sure doesnt do much to get me excited for the upcoming football season. Sounds like Baldwin is still in the OC role, Garretson didnt impress (almost nobody impressed except maybe Tim Cook and Nall at RB. Still sounds like the GA run team is working on finding an identity….
