  1. we needed to get rid of kemp, so im fine with this. But we're actually taking on more salary then if were just to dfa him. little confused by that part.
  2. Orioles Asking for Offers on Machado

    yea, that would never happen and is a ridiculous request.
  3. Atlanta Braves Mega Thread

    from what it sounds like, braves are gonna roll with the young kids at pitcher and not bring anyone in. my guess is fried is the favorite to land the last spot.

    well you absolutely do have something to lose if youre selling a house, agree to a sale price with someone then find out that they cant get the money. Thats a pretty big issue that has tangible repercussions. which is the reason why this was such an awful analogy for you to use.

    I understand, and yet still call bs. its not an auction, realtors dont go around saying i have an offer for 205, will you go 206. and the first question i would ask if i was the on they came back to would be if they had loan preapproval. if not, they can take my cheaper offer or i say good luck rolling teh idce. This isnt rocket science either any realtor with their commission knows this, i come across this stuff on a semi regular basis for my job. Its a bad analogy, theyre are probably decent ones out there but this is downright awful.

    Now i call BS. No realtor is going to recommend taking offers without a preapproval letter. You tried to put out a bad analogy, it backfired and now youre trying to bs your way out.

    you probably should, even if it worked out in 1-2 instances, it still doesnt make it smart. im surprised a realtor wouldnt strongly steer them away from that.
  8. Yankees, Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade, lulz Cards/Giants

    yea, thats not how house buying works. if youre smart, you wont even consider an offer unless it includes a preapproval sheet. so certainly not the best analogy here.

    we agree the best way would have been to keep in constant contact woth stanton amd his reps. but theres nothing pointing to that other than you saying thats the way it was. you also said its the only way a deal would get done. we saw two deals not get done. ill ask again, whose to say the marlins felt that stanton was their employee and they would tell him what they wanted to when they wanted to?

    that wasnt the question, were those things common sense? im pretty sure theres only one right/honest answer here. so youre arguing they arent displaying common sense in some areas but are in others. why is it wrong to assume that they feel stanton is there employee and they shouldnt be taking directive from him. Theyll negotiate with who they want to and let him know when theyre ready to let him know. That seems to be the approach theyre taking in other aspects of business.

    do you think its common sense to know that its extremely poor form to fire people recovering on hospital beds? is it common sense not to take a personal salary while trying to cut company costs and firing employees to do so? weird thing about common sense... not everyone has it.
  12. Yankees, Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade, lulz Cards/Giants

    is there anything pointing to the marlins keeping up to that level of communication? Everything ive read says stanton gave them a list, marlins negotiated deals with san fran and stl and then said oh btw, weve got deals with these guys. could you show me something saying otherwise?
  13. Yankees, Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade, lulz Cards/Giants

    not buying it at all, especially since the marlins themselves tried to strong arm him into accepting the trade. just bad business, let him know ahead of time and then figure out a plan from there. very much seems like they winged it.
  14. Yankees, Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade, lulz Cards/Giants

    so why agree to trades before stanton okayed them?
  15. Yankees, Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade, lulz Cards/Giants

    you left out the second part of my thoughts on that, they couldnt get stanton to agree to the trades. the communication was awful, that conversatiom has to be had before hand.
