Soylent Green is People: 8/9

Skip the fame and the glamour Gimme green with a rubber hammer

This kid throws noise.
This kid throws noise.

Well the AL Central race is done and dusted, but Soylent Green will march proudly on.

Nope. That will happen elsewhere. And I guarantee that it will happen.

Nope. It will actually happen right here, and is in fact doing so right now. You really Ockused that one up. This is the comforting junk food of Indians coverage; I'm a jilted girl with a pint of Haagen-Dazs right now.

Maybe there’s a connection.

Have a twinkie, Asdrubal.

No doubt that would make him feel better, but I doubt the Bartolo Colon eating plan is the way back into this one for our boys. Speaking of which, let's all pour one out for the our homies that are gone.

Low man on the totem pole and author of my favorite non-walkoff moment of the year. Sigh.

I'm not a huge fan of calling things epic, so I'll just settle for pointing out the fact that that is how a grown man pimps a home run.

Does he have plans tonight?

I think he’s free for dinner.

I think his calendar is fairly wide open at this point. Feel free to take a moment to mourn the passing of the Mark Reynolds you were hoping was going to carry us through September like he did in April, and then we'll move on.

You should really filter, like, one out of every ten comments. It would really improve your posting.

I filter a good deal more than that, actually. And I'm doing the best I can, thank you. I'm open to suggestions regarding how I could improve your experience with this piece.

That's just mean-spirited and probably not even a very practicable suggestion. I'm going to get to the green of the week and what-not here so I can go play with my kid.

Nah, he's coming up on a year.

If this is true, it has to be the green of the week. I'm choosing to believe it's true, as are at least four of you.

I just called the Cleveland Indians. Some lady named Kara spoke to me. I told her we want Kazmir re-signed to a 3 year contract and asked her if her employers were working on hammering something out with him. she said she has no idea then asked me what i thought of danny salazar.

That's great customer service. Here's the rest of your week in green.

I don’t want Pittsburgh to be able to celebrate another championship in any sport until after Cleveland does several times.

Smooth single on the way. Write it in stone.

If they were biased they’d be on suicide watch.

You’re a real class act chuck.

Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that Lukehart re-entered the country in the last few days?

I try not to be unfriendly or insulting. You seem to strive to be both.

Remember, just like us they too will grow old one day. And die.

With the two loses to Detroit and the Kluber injury I feel like I’ve just been kicked in the genitals. Extending Raburn is like an ice pack on said region. It helps, but I’m still hurting.

I felt good warming up, but Padua responded to a good argument. My points were a little blunt and you can’t make that kind of mistake with a commenter as good as Pads. I know I let the people wanting a fight down, but we’ve got another chance tomorrow. I wish I could take that post back, but I can’t, so I’ll tip my cap and move on.

"Just keep winning and let everything else sort itself out," he mused, hammering the refresh button on the standings page.

Bah. If you’re looking for an excuse not to care for this team, then you’re just pretending to be interested.

To allow the fear to build. It’s like when a girl tells you “we need to talk.” You know you are going to lose, you just get to dread it longer.

That's about it for me. I guess we're close to giving up on the season, right?

Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

Ooh, that's a really valid point. Never mind, darn the torpedoes Tigers, full steam ahead!
