Freddy Galvis could soon be out of hospital

+

Couple notes here, but the big one is that Galvis could be out of the hospital "As soon as Monday". Still no timetable on his return, of course, but it's great to hear he's recovering well.

I'd love it so much more if somehow it had actual bacon on it, but I definitely will be buying one of these hats

My whole world is crumbling around me.

Phils still in running for Burnett as of 2/10/14 10PM

Phils still in running as of tonight per Zolecki, against what Salisbury said Friday. IMO this is a game-changer if it happens (though not "likely" yet).

2014 Projections from Clay Davenport

3

Clay Davenport (who I hadn't heard of, to be honest, but is the co-founder of Baseball Prospectus), released his 2014 projections last week. He has the Phils at a pitiful 70-92 record. A couple of things jump out about his projections: Position players' WARP totals 16, which is reasonable, except that it includes Cesar Hernandez at minus 3.1. I have to think there must be an error somewhere. Pitchers WARP totals 18, for a total of 34 for all players, but 34+48 (replacement) would be 82 wins, not 72, so he must be assuming a different replacement level than what Fangraphs and Baseball Reference use.

Chipper Jones Sets Woods Ablaze By Sheer Force of Ignorance

10

Chipper Jones, dumbest of fucks, sets the woods near his house on fire because he doesn't know how to get rid of ashes safely. No, I am not making this up. I have heated with wood for, oh, about 30 years of my life, spending most of those years in the midst of roughly 25,000 acres of forest. I have never once set the woods on fire because...I don't throw wood ashes into the woods. What he did is indescribably stupid and dangerous. Thankfully, the blaze was quickly contained by the local fire department. By all rights, they should have tied him naked to their trucks and turned the hoses on him to teach him a lesson. Thankfully, nobody was hurt.
