I say: ”Blake DeWitt will be a solid 2B and has the power to hit 20-25 HR.”
You say: ”No way he does that – your’re crazy!”
I say: “James Loney will start showing some power and hit .300.”
You say: “You are always predicting career years for Dodger players.” (While we are on that one – tell me where I really missed it. Not when I said a guy would hit .300 and he only hit .287, but when I said a guy would hit .300 and he hit .235. Come on – I’m waiting).
I say” ”Clayton Kershaw will be our Ace and Chad Billingsley will return to form.”
You say: “There you go again, making unrealistic predictions.”
I say: “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
You say: “We have to bailout the banks and car companies.”
Here’s the deal: You have to let people fail… or succeed. Bailouts help no one. Let the American Spirit Soar. Don’t fence it in.
Sometimes you get amazing results.
An innocent man in prison can sit there an lament his plight.
An innocent man in prison can get to work and end his plight.
It’s a choice!
This is the greatest country in the world because people who live in abject poverty are forced to sink or swim.
Many chose to sink, but some swim (against all odds) and soar to success.
Only in America.
The Indianapolis Colts have the best winning percentage record of any team in any sport in a decade. In their locker room, they have a sign that says “Next man up.”
If someone gets hurt – it’s The Next Man Up! Just keep on Keepin’ on!
The Dodgers could sign Braden Looper. That’s safe (or stupid).
Or, they could let Stults, Elbert, Haeger and McDonald blaze the trail.
It’s Safe to Be Negative: After all, you can’t be disappointed. You already predicted failure!
It tough to be bold. You get criticized. You get made fun of. That’s why many people chose to be negative.
You can be negative, or you can be positive, and according to some people, it makes no difference.
But, it makes a difference to me. When I am positive I am happy. When I am negative, I am sad.
If the result is the same, why not be positive… and happy?
It’s easy to be negative. You may only see the forest, but I see the trees. Not because I’m better than you. It’s just that I’m bolder than you!
