The Nephilim Are On The Earth in These Days: Cliff Lee and a Chat Thread

New, 1050 comments

So the big news of the past few days is, of course, Cliff Lee spurning the hated East Coast superpower Yankees' offers of riches beyond counting to accept the hated East Coast superpower Phillies' offer of slightly less -- though still not easily countable -- riches. For my part, I suppose it's at least interesting to see a player finally go somewhere other than New York or Boston, but that's rather cold comfort when contemplating seeing Philadelphia six times in the regular season. Or, worse yet, in a playoff series. Oh, well. I suppose the Cardinals would have to actually make the playoffs before that becomes a concern, and I'm not at all confident in their ability to do that. So, cart before the horse and all that.

I haven't done a chat in what seems like forever; my schedule has simply been too full this autumn and early winter to allow it. This afternoon, however, I find myself with a couple free hours, so rather than hammer away at the keys, trying to draw sense from the resultant mass, I'm just going to sit here with my laptop and let you all generate the content for me. How does it feel being used? Ha ha! And just look how little I care!

Anyway, unpleasantness aside, I'll be here until about three-ish. Topics can include, well, pretty much whatever. You've seen how these things work before. So ask away, and I'll do my very best to dance at the end of your string.
