  1. Per Chris Jaffe, today I'm exactly as old as Robert DeNiro was the day Raging Bull was released: 13,604 days.

  2. The A's have played 8 more games than the Twins so far.

    I am already dreading the summer when the Twins have 16 pitchers to deal with no off days

    1. They have 24 games in 25 days and 39 of the next 40 (two days off, but a double header on May 11) not counting rainouts.

  3. what kind of effed up head do you have to have to throw a 5-year old child off a third-floor balcony?

      1. Kinda related but not. I was in a mall in the Metro, many years ago, maybe 2nd or 3rd floor. A child had wandered over to the guard rail at the edge of the opening and had gotten his head stuck in between two of the bars, and started screaming.

        The mother was nowhere in sight, so I went over to help (natürlich), and held the kid's head firmly, pulling it out of the bars.

        It all turned out fine, but I can just imagine her showing up screaming What are you doing to my baby!

  4. WordPress hackery:

    Over the past three weeks, a trio of critical zeroday vulnerabilities in WordPress plugins has exposed 160,000 websites to attacks that allow criminal hackers to redirect unwitting visitors to malicious destinations. A self-proclaimed security provider who publicly disclosed the flaws before patches were available played a key role in the debacle, although delays by plugin developers and site administrators in publishing and installing patches have also contributed.

    Over the past week, zeroday vulnerabilities in both the Yuzo Related Posts and Yellow Pencil Visual Theme Customizer WordPress plugins, used by 60,000 and 30,000 websites respectively, have come under attack. Both plugins were removed from the WordPress plugin repository around the time the zeroday posts were published, leaving websites little choice than to remove the plugins. On Friday, Yellow Pencil issued a patch, three days after the vulnerability was disclosed. At the time this post was being reported Yuzo Related Posts remained closed with no patch available.

  5. In 2000, Sean Bergman was paid $1.2 mil to pitch for the Twins. he produce a -1.5 bWAR in 15 games. That is an impressive amount of stink.
