I dont see why the Phillies should throw money in the hopes that Doc figures things out. That's what teams on the bubble typically do and the Phillies arent even close to that in 2014.

As for fast food coffee...I think McDonald's coffee is solid.

This is one of the busier threads in the last few weeks...sadly.

If one were going with Tea, I'd prefer Irish Breakfast Tea with cream/sugar. Solid alternative to coffee...less heartburn too.

Supposedly the new "blonde" roast from Starbucks deals with the Charbucks reputation quite well but I've never tried it. As to gas station coffee...several gas stations I know have pretty decent coffee.

I'm drinking coffee right now. Also, starbucks actual coffee isn't expensive...its all the crazy moch type drinks that cost $5 a pop that are expensive.

As far as mass produced coffee providers go, I'd rate Tim Hortons above Dunkin or Starbucks. Wawa used to make good coffee too...when I lived in an area with Wawas...no idea how Wawa is these days though.

I never use the keurig at my office personally. I either just buy coffee or make it myself at home with my french press. I dont care for k-cups at all to be honest. I do think they're a step up from the average office coffee pot that is basically never cleaned and sits there most of the day.

It turns out that Mr. Amaro was paying a little bit too much for his coffee...$6200 a pound. Though I hear Lindo coffee is quite tasty.

What about those flying cockroaches they have in the South?

When I bought my current house, it had been vacant for a good 3 months. I put out traps the first week or so and caught something like 75 mice in the first 5 days. One time, I literally emptied a trap and reset it...as I got back downstairs, I heard the snap and went back up and there was another mouse in it. On several occasions, I got two mice in the same trap. I've since planted a bunch of mint around the border of the house and dont have any issues...I also dont store firewood in the garage and on the side of the house like the previous owner did.

There used to be a show in infestations on A&E back in the day...the two weirdest I ever saw were a house that had something like 50 raccoons living in the attic crawl space and a house out west where the groundwater was infested with thousands upon thousands of garter snakes. Basically their well water came out smelling funky (like snake piss apparently) so when they dug it up, there were thousands of snakes. Both were freaky but I have to say the snake one was worse. The raccoon one was funny though given that they went into the attic and there were just dozens of them running around.

Even a clean building/home can have mice...you have to be filthy to have coachroaches. So yes, the GARP rating is higher for roaches.

They do break pretty regularly but GMC is pretty good at replacing them quickly. Rube strikes me as a Sanka man. He's probably been told of the higher quality you'd get with a French Press and/or the speed efficiency of a Keurig but he simply doesn't buy it.

Wow...that's stupid. My office lets us all order our own boxes from Green Mountain Coffee...mind you, it helps that Green Mountain coffee is literally right down the road and we get the keurig machine for free from them as long as we keep buying the k-cups from them. GMC was very smart in that respect to simply lease out the machines free of cost...great business model. They replace them the same day whenever they break too.

Your offices dont have a Keurig machine? Wow...gotta get with the times, gentlemen.

I dont recall Ruf being that terrible defensively at 1B...certainly not as bad as Howard was this year.

***Cardinals took a big gamble on Beltran, who was 34 years old and injury wracked for 2 of the prior 3 years and it paid off handsomely*** The Cardinals almost always seem to win on those "gambles" that they take. Other than Wiggy, they have a great track record on reclamation projects. Maybe their scouting/baseball evaluation system is better than ours...

***Do people on here legitimately think Darin Ruf is an everyday starter in right field?*** No, I think he could be a platoon 1B who gets the occasional starts in LF/RF for his bat knowing full well his defense hurts us. Though when he's replacing Brown, the dropoff is pretty negliable so its less of a concern there. However, there is a misconception on this site that every other team has fantastic defensive players at the corner OF positions. Lots of very good offensive corner OFs are absolutely atrocious in the field...Cuddyer comes to mind as a great example of this. A team can take the hit if the bat is good enough. In Ruf's case, I dont think it is for an everyday role but in a smaller role where he likely gets around 300-400 PA between the 3 spots, he has a lot of value.

Somebody finally asked Rube about his RF comments...here's his response: It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I'm smart and I want respect!

You know I love the Bull, but Boog's at Camden Yards is better Pit Beef. There, I said it. Somebody had too. Posted by: jbird | Tuesday, October 01, 2013 at 11:05 AM I guess we finally figured out what the J stands for, eh Judas?

The Marlins just signed Greg Dobbs to a 1 year, $1.7 million deal for 2014. Okay then.
