A new TED talk on YouTube. I thought it was interesting that a lot of what he describes is stoicism but he never calls it that.

Saw this today. Don't know if anyone is into the primal living or paleo dieting, but looks like one of their big spokesman is promoting stoicism as well.

Any Gotham fans? The last episode they talked about Marcus Aurelius and how stoicism is a life philosophy. Kind of cool what it leads Bruce Wayne to find. I won't spoil it but check it out.

Brewer's Future

There is a lot of talk about rebuilding the Milwaukee Brewers. I don't trust a rebuild to actually work and not to take ten years. Regardless, I think there are a number of options to address some key holes right now if they start making smarter moves with their prospects and draft choices.

To begin with, let's look at where the holes are in the team. Personally, I would say left field, third base and first base are the 3 biggest issues facing the Brewers. Left Field its either Davis or Para both of whom don't hit well or are a streaky hitter in Davis's case, but Para definitely has the better defense out of the two by far. Start by trading Davis and make Para your full timer until Tyrone Taylor or Monte Harrison is ready to come up which should be in the very near future.

The rest of the outfield I think is good enough. They should try and sign Gomez when is contract comes due but not to some outrageous decade long deal like they did with Braun. Gomez brings a lot of excitement to the team, a decent bat, and good defense. He is worth keeping around if he wants to stay. If not, there are two outfield prospect coming up and Braun isn't going anywhere so they could replace both Davis and Gomez if necessary.

The next weakness was third base. Ramirez is a hall of famer who said he is retiring at the end of this year. Regardless of whether or not he does, he is done as a full time player and cannot be depended on to play every game and still make an impact. Those his defense is still stellar, his bat has slowed especially when he does not get time off. Here I would consider looking to make Orlando Arcia 3B. He is nearly ready for the big leagues and could fill this hole in a number of ways. He is listed as being able to play SS or 2B so if 3B is not an option for whatever reason, Segura or Gennett could move over. Segura definitely has the arm for 3B but I think his range at SS makes it his ideal position. I am not sure Gennett has the arm for 3B. Thus, Arcia is the more logical choice at 3B.

Lastly, 1B is the next hole and not because of Lind's ability but how long he will be in Milwaukee. Lind's been doing a great job so far and has brought a lively bat to the club, but alas, his contract is short and will probably be heading out after the year. The Brewers should look to try and secure him for an additional 2-3 years but not more. If they do secure him for a few more years, this would give time for Clint Coulter to make the move to the big leagues at catcher and then the Brewers can move Lucroy out to 1B permanently. 

Now the Brewers only have to worry about pitching which is a huge problem for them. The pitchers in their top ten prospects are pretty low on the list and several years out if they ever even make it. They can keep Peralta and Nelson with a possibility of Fiers staying long term but Garza and Lohse are near the end of productivity. Perhaps they will be able to acquire a pitching prospect for Davis in a trade that can break into the bigs in a few years, but I'm not sure Davis is worth that. Now is the time for them to try and pull an ace out of free agency.They need someone to anchor down the rotation. If they can find an ace and a half ways decent number 5 in free agency, they may just have a chance at still winning games while they "rebuild" using the draft and trading away players like Gomez, Braun, Lucroy and others as they reach the end of their peak instead of when they are reaching their peak.

But what do I know. I am just a fan who enjoys speculating and playing MLB on my Vita. Hey, this strategy works in my game, why not in real life ;-)

Leaked texts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement's “Intellectual Property” chapter confirm our worst fears: Big Content companies are pushing extreme copyright provisions in a secret trade deal that would put restrictive controls on the Internet.

The food here was exceptional! On our four day vacation we ate here twice because it was so good (and it didn't hurt it was right next to the hotel). The service was friendly and quick, the menu was diverse and unique, and the prices were not overly expensive. A very enjoyable experience.

I really enjoyed this place. It has a fun atmosphere and the burgers were pretty good. The beer selection is decent as well. What's better than burgers and beer?

Its a fun place to go hang out. The drinks are cheap and so is the food when they have it. Always look froward to hanging out with family when we visit Fargo at the Elks.

Its a very neat park and experience. The caves are amazing and wonderful to see. it is a tourist attraction, so expect some people and waiting; however, they have wonderful trails and gardens to explore until your tour begins. Tour guides could use a little work though; they are very mechanical.

A pretty decent buffet. Lots of different foods out there and not just Asian cuisine, but also american. They do have sushi which isn't half bad for being a buffet. Probably the best asian buffet in sioux city.
