Dumber Than a Bag of Hammers

What scares me is that Brandon League and Brian Wilson are toast.  I know it’s early, but I felt what Brian Wilson accomplished last year was “smoke and mirrors” induced (I know someone will produce some statistics that say otherwise, but he was flat-out lucky at times), and I was against re-signing him… especially at [...]

Memo to Ned:

Donnie is Outta’ his League
