    Let's keep the party going. This might be the highlight of the entire off-season.

    There will be a Nepo Bump. The Verlander Traded to Astros thread was revived years later.

    This thread is sad AF. Some of you guys sound like you’re still crying over an ex girlfriend. It’s over, she’s gone. Sack up, and move on.

    HELL yeah. I know I am. I was afraid they were going to keep him and then fire him 3 years down the road and then the MLB will drag Houston across the coals for firing him.

    We'd have Maldonado catching in a wheelchair...

    I doubt he cares anymore. He certainly didn't seem to leave on a good note here. Oh well. Thankfully he's gone. Your thread bump scared me. I thought that he had been added as an advisor or something.

    "necro bump", Riceboy, "necro bump"

    I'm sure it will involve Bagwell as GM, the 4th Verlander trade, Dusty as Manager, Wayne Graham destroying pitchers, and the reasons Lance Berkman never got to coach at Rice

    Why did I click on this?
    It's like a phishing e mail sitting in my inbox.

    Why did I reply to this? It's like screaming at the robocall for being a robot caller.

    I replied to this because I’m oh so happy he’s not the skipper anymore.

    Lance is a complete douchebag, Verlander is who is. Dusty is trash. I like Bagwell but he doesn't deserve blame nor does Graham

    I have a couple of stories about when he and Pettitte were briefly the coaches at Second Baptist.
