Thread: Tim Tebow

    I think God did Cardinals fans a solid on this one. They'll wind up better off. A full year of Wainwright, plus an everyday spot opening up for Allen Craig, and a full season of Freese. And that's before the additions they'll be able to make without that albatross of a 10-year $220 million contract that'll be dead money in five years. I would not be surprised if Cardinals brass was secretly happy to have made a credible offer and been outbid.

    That's a rather silly standard. Attractive people can be as bad as anyone else. (not saying Tim Tebow is)

    I tend to disagree with his whole Focus on the Family political ideas (and was pretty annoyed when they played his ad for that group but refused to play an ad for a gay dating site during the Superbowl... what was it, last year?), but other than that I don't have much opinion on the guy. I live in Denver, so I do get really tired of people talking about him every six seconds.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    It's only silly if you think about it too hard with your other head

    So the Eagles must be experiencing God's wrath.

    Almost all Cardinals fans that I know agree with you here. Cardinals fans are angry mostly for emotional reasons. It's like a breakup. There are hurt feelings. But from a baseball perspective, most know that this is probably best for the franchise. If Pujol$ signed, Wainwright probably walks in a couple years, and honestly, Wainwright is going to be the better player for most of this next decade, even if Pujol$' decline slows down (his OBP dropped by almost 50 points last season).

    If the Cardinals are able to land Beltran, Cuddyer, or Cespedes, they'll probably be better than they were last season.

    It will be gratifying when Pujol$ is watching the Cardinals in the playoffs from his million dollar couch that God told him to buy. Maybe Nyjer Morgan can join him.

    I like this quote by Dan Haren:

    "I've never been this excited for a baseball season to start," Angels right-hander Dan Haren said. "I've never felt this way about a baseball season in December."
    This is probably true. Winning 105 games and going to the World Series with the Cardinals in 2004 must have been pretty dull.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Then again, if he knew that was all going to happen in December of 2003, he'd be some sort of prophet.

    Like Tebow.

    If the Angels had Tebow, they'd probably win 105 games. Without him, they won't even win their own division.

That being said, I've been an Angels fan my whole life, and I've never seen or felt such excitement for an upcoming season. These two signings put us in serious World Series contention for the next 4-5 years. And the most important thing to realize is how this fits into Arte Moreno's and the Angels' long-term goals. They want to dethrone the Dodgers as the team of the Los Angeles area (all the way from Ventura to San Bernardino/Riverside to Orange County). They also want to capture the Latino market, both within and outside the United States, and this signing, combined with many other things about the team, will only help accomplish this.

    Nah.

    But you do sleep in the bed you make.

    As I believe it says in the Bible (just checked -- interestingly, it does not; but I don't care): "God helps the man who helps himself."

    If you don't think faith, hard work, a positive attitude, et al, will help you succeed in life, then, well, best of luck to you.

    And Tebow agrees.

    He's said repeatedly that God doesn't care what team wins a game.

    It's this kind of shallow mocking, with just a bit of actual venom attached, that does nothing to improve our national discourse.
