Cup of Coffee: November 22, 2023
A new manager in San Diego, a new bench coach in New York, another aging, back-of-the-rotation starter in St. Louis, "Rickey Bucks," Tell 'em Wash, Elon Musk's frivolous lawsuit, and guest posts
Good morning! And happy 60th anniversary to the dawn of the Age of Conspiracies!
There are a lotta baseball items today: the Padres have a new manager, the Yankees have a new bench coach, and the Cardinals seem to be cornering the market on aging, back-of-the-rotation starters. Also, the Rangers and Diamondbacks allocating postseason shares inspired me to coin the phrase “Rickey Bucks,” a famous movie scene’s veracity is confirmed, and a former MVP and Cy Young winner has passed away.
In Other Stuff I have some more codes, I take potshots at Elon Musk’s frivolous lawsuit against Media Matters, we have an update on a guest post from last week and a new guest post as well.
