1. From Tom Chambers:

Maybe I was late to the pilots' bombing briefing, but I have never honestly heard this logic. These (fill in profanity here) owners have created a scenario where ANY eventuality is good!

If you win, great, you are successful.

If you lose - and the word tanking is never used by ANY team members and I'll bet organizational personnel are told not to - you are "rebuilding" and, lusting the superhuman players awaiting you at the end of the black rainbow, YOU are being successful. You've got fans CHEERING for their team to lose, and seeing it as a positive when they do!

What an absolute interplanetary quantum particle SCAM! Who invented that?! It's pure GENIUS!

Pre-, during, and post-playing career, Derek Jeter remains a jerk, calling his own fans stupid and informing them that no matter what happens they WILL enjoy it, at the same prices.

This is an extremely ballsy declaration of "We don't care, fans" about anything, or you. Go beef about it to Billy the Marlin, who's not allowed to talk. And enjoy the Miami-style food, even though you already live in Miami. Jeter had better be careful, or he's going to give tanking a bad name.

It's a COOKBOOK, Professor Chambers!
