A hearty cheer for another week of Soylent Green!
And when the gas runs out just rec it, you insured the thing.
Oh man. What a week to recap here on Soylent Green. I think, before I start in, I need to address some of the debates that have been going down in the comments lately.
Maybe you ought to sit that one out.
Yeah, you could have a point there. Maybe I'll revisit the issue in the offseason.
I will be drunk, sir, and in no fit condition.
Oh. Well if YDW is out, there's not much of a point, is there? Let's just let this weekly piece be about highly-rated comments.
Agreed. Well, probably. I'll run some suggestions for a format change by Jason when he gets back into town.
Someone cancel Lukehart’s passport, we can’t risk this.

Well, if you feel that strongly about it, I guess I'll just stick to doing my thing.
Wandering around trying to score an eighth?
You're thinking of Chris Perez' dog doing his thing. I assure, every part of my writing on this site is on the up and up (whatever the heck that means). My work here is, to paraphrase a quote attributed to Thomas Edison, 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.
Terry Francona causes both.
I... what? That's kind of gross and kind of creepy. Anywho, we're getting to the end of the structured portion of our program. I just wanted to say that this would have been green of the week...
Every day this week I have woken up, read my Twitter feed on my phone over breakfast, laughed aloud and said "The Hawk is in pain this morning". And now my wife thinks I’m a spy.
...because it's awesome, but this...
...stole my heart and won the day. The combination of the caption and the pure glee Carlos is demonstrating kind of gives a peek back at a time (that maybe I'm inventing) when he was just a kid playing for the pure fun of it, just because he loved baseball. We're all here because, at one point or another, before anything we've ever dreamed of arguing about entered our minds, we loved ball and loved the Tribe, and I think - I hope - we all still do. Here's the rest of your week in green.
This feels like Christmas when I was 9. I wanted a bike (Cliff Lee) and got some new underwear instead (Eye Chart). I guess I’ll hafta be satisfied with this.

I can’t believe we couldn’t get them to include Kozma.

"Sorry, Mr. Lukehart; your passport has expired."
Typical Cleveland offense against a brand new starter. Thankfully they got to beat up on the Sox pen.
The Tigers can go ahead and start losing any day now. I’d be ok with that.
Remember, this will be post TJ bionic Tomlin.
"Hoes and another piece"? Where the hell is Selig on this?!?
ELISHA OTIS DID NOTHING WRONG!
And it should be noted, that this is not personal. It was not a jab at you, personally, westbrook. not that you thought so, necessarily. that’s not an attack either.
They are, too. Super giant fatties.
I WILL NEVER DOUBT AGAIN.
Was at the game last night, 2-0 this year, and both walkoffs! I’m going again Monday so be sure to tune in late.
Texas bunts in 8th, gets 2 runs.
Tribe doesn’t bunt in 11th, gets 3.
Therefore, not bunting>bunting.
What the hell does her gender have to do with anything?
shoppin’ inquirin’ bout various sporting procedures
"boy is this a treat! the umpire is indicating balls and strikes"
Dude. You can’t appear until we call for you thrice.
I’m in Indianapolis to watch Chelsea with my wife as our anniversary getaway. So far we canceled a possible movie night to listen to the game last night, and now we are trying to watch this one on a laptop.
There it is, gang. I hope you all enjoyed it.
I'm calling that a win. Finally, I was hoping this one would get a third rec, but it never quite got there. I'm including it anyway. Have a great weekend, all.
I say, do what you feel.
I would however point out that the marginal cost of rec’ing is basically nothing. Like, I wouldn’t worry that you’re going to drag down the site’s standards by rec’ing a little too much, as opposed to depriving the world of a little more happiness by rec’ing too little. And it’s not as though it’s going to dilute the quality of the Soylent Green posts, either, because obviously Joel D is a hack.
