Michael Jack Says Crack Is Wack

We all remember "Operation Shutdown." Some of us may remember "Operation Crackpipe." Well, Derek bell is back in the news again.

Tampa police arrested Derek Bell, 39, Monday night on four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Arrest records show he lives in Valrico and is unemployed. Bell is being held at the Orient Road Jail on $2,500 bond.

When asked about his arrest, Bell stated, "Remember what the Bible says: He who is without sin, cast the first rock. And I shall smoketh it."

In situations like this, I often look down at my WWSD bracelet and think, "What would Michael Jack Schmidt have to say about this?"

He'd be good on Tim and Eric.

Hey, did you know cocaine is apparently a "big lie" and can kill you?

Bob D said...

Is any of this directed at me?

GM-Carson said...

Why do you ask Bob D, are you addicted to smack?

GM-Carson said...

Apparently the Phillies have offered Derek Lowe a contract...interesting.

GM-Carson said...

Crazy scenario- Phils sign Lowe. Blue Jays lose Burnett. Phils trade Myers to Toronto (whom they've always liked) for one of their righthanded batting outfielders (Rios or Wells, preferably Rios). Would probably have to kick in a prospect to sweeten the deal- Happ or Donald?

D Lowe... say yes

Larry said...

A word of caution to those who quickly offer up Donald's name as a sweetener for any deal...

Think about what we will all be screaming if we get into late May, struggling with Bruntlett taking the bulk of playing time at 2nd, while Utley slowly rehabs.

I'm not saying we would walk away from the deal proposed by Carson, but careful what you wish for...

GM-Carson said...

Larry, I do not wish for Donald to be traded unless it means landing a player like Rios. If Donald is traded, and possibly even if he's not, I see Rube signing a utility infielder to share the burden with Bruntlett (Damion Easley, Nick Punto, Mark Loretta).

Bob D said...

I really hope Donald is on the no trade list. I'd rather part with someone with a lower ceiling.

Rios or even Wells would be a positive addition. The team would still need one more OF'er to replace Taguchi, unless the extra Utility IF (Punto, Loretta, or Easley) would count against his spot as they would have Dobbs and Bruntlet who can play OF if needed.

GM-Carson said...

Jenkins, Stairs, Victorino, and Werth are already outfielders, while Dobbs and Bruntlett can play out there too. No need to replace So-Tag, only need to replace Burrell.

3 MVPs, 548 HR, lifetime .267 avg and 10 Gold Gloves CAN'T BE WRONG!!!!


And a long fly ball, Michael Jack Schmidt!


Where was I?

Dude, are you guys kidding? Hey, I respect most of what you write, but you are WAY off if you think Toronto would even sniff at that deal. I mean, come on. Myers got demoted last year into the minors. Rios is really, really good. So is wells, even if he maybe got signed to an overly-large contract.

I mean, I like the deal in theory for the Phils...but I also like the idea of trading Geoff Jenkins for Grady Sizemore, straight-up. Something tells me the Indians wouldn't, though...
