The Filibuster

Hey guys! This offseason left a lot of older free agents without work.
Jermaine Dye still doesn’t have a job.  Joe Crede, Hank
Blalock and many others still don’t have jobs either. Would you blame
this on the poor economy or do you think there’s a stronger emphasis on
youth in today’s game? Nice to see the Filibuster come back!

elway_autonation.jpgJermaine Dye doesn’t have a job?  Neither does Joe Crede or Hank Blalock?  You know what I have to say to that?  La di freakin’ da.  Who cares?  If they were worth anything, they’d have found a new team.  Cream always rises to the top and since they haven’t been skimmed off, well, I guess that tells all you need to know about them.

You want to hear about tragedy, I’ll give you tragedy.  Somehow RSBS is still not getting paid.  Yeah, the adoration of millions is nice and all but where’s the money?  However, even that’s nothing compared to the picture I’m about to paint for you.

Imagine a man, a man who has one thing in the world he truly loves.  And now imagine what happens to this man when that one thing is torn away from him.  Not only does this rending cause physical and psychological torture beyond all understanding, it also fundamentally alters the core of his being. 

Yes, I’m talking about the fact that Jim Leyland will not be allowed to smoke at Comerica Park.

Trust me, Jared, I’m as horrified at the thought as you are.  Leyland without a cigarette is like a Frenchman without a beret.  Exactly.  It boggles the mind.  It’s inconceivable.  It’s ludicrous.

Joe Crede without a job?  That’s just natural selection.  Good luck in baseball’s Darwinian afterlife, my friend.  Maybe you can do like Elway and open a car lot.



Something on your mind?  Want to see Jeff and Al sweat (separately, not together, eww)?  Think you got a real stumper?  Send us your Filibuster question(s) by commenting or emailing them to us at 

***Your snarky comments regarding Elway in pleats also welcome.

    Know how they saw baseball mirrors life and life mirrors baseball? Jermaine Dye doesn’t have a job because:
    This is the natural evolution of the Marvin Miller Era. The same way Capitalism/Democracy/Republicanism has evolved into it’s present day mess, and is steadily eliminating the middle class, so goes it in baseball. The baseball middle class and “kling-ons” are being ‘disappeared’ by the baseball GovernMinds. They (the union) can’t call it collusion this time! Johnny Damon was lucky to have dodged the asteroid in Detroit. He will prove to be the exception and a mistake by Dombrowski. There will only be rich and minimum salaried players soon. Middle class baseball dinosaurs beware, the asteroid is coming. Our next collective bargaining session will be the mother of all collective bargaining sessions.
    I wrapped it…duct-taped it…tied it to the tracks….And now this TROLLEY is about to steel wheel my way over this Filibuster. Where’s “MY HERO” now…huh?
    Outta my way B’s!
