Why would anyone in San Diego be blaming Jayce Tingler for the Padres late season collapse.

You can put a scarecrow in a lot MLB dugouts these days and call it a manager—Are we really going to believe that ANY important decision-making is being left to Tingler?

I don’t…
The Padres collapse is resulting from:

-Bad Luck…Injuries to the pitching staff, and key position players.
-An astronomical miscalculation at the trade deadline.
-Poor performance…Rich contracts netting poor results.

Jayce Tingler is being scapegoated.
Just like Andy Green, Tingler will most likely find himself a causality of finger pointing.

Maybe Preller needs to buy a new manager…maybe…or maybe mirror, they’re cheaper.

Watching Andrew Luck's retirement press conference brought back a lot of memories. My "last day" was Tuesday, October 13th, 2015... my decision was made at a hotel lobby bar in Detroit after a group tryout with the Lions. Here's my story...
My final season was 2014, I was playing for the Chargers and I was a MESS. I had been dealing with severe back pain for 2 years, and it was coming to a head. I became the starting center during a Week 1 game in Arizona, by Week 3 in Buffalo I was very debilitated.
My mornings began at 4:30AM crawling from my bed to the bathtub, my pregnant wife would help me get in the tub, and I would soak & stretch until I was able to walk. I'd then go to the facility and do exercises to strengthen my back, but the pain was unrelenting.

More on the #AAF collapse:

+Players in Memphis came back to their hotels after news came down, and had their personal items waiting in the lobby. Kicked out of their lodgings.

+Amount of money owed to vendors, venues, etc. in San Antonio for training camp is over $4 Million
+Reserve/Injured players, “will be left in the cold.” They will be paying for their own rehab/medical expenses.

+High level staff at the team level received email from “The Board” no one received a termination notice from an actual person.
+Team level staff members were asked to stay behind in markets to clean out office spaces (without pay)... and handle “refunds” ...no clarity who will be receiving those refunds.

This is a complete mess...

Tom Brady chugging beer story...

Day after Christmas 2010, week 16, we absolutely smoked the Bills and clinched the AFC East. This was one of the rare occasions while I was with the Patriots where I got playing time (starters benched in the 4th, we lead by 31)...
While celebrating the win (of the game and division) in the locker room, we were informed we couldn’t take off/land due to a blizzard slamming the Boston area. Also, with the influx of game day visitors, hotel shortages forced us to seek accomodations in Rochester, NY...
Matt Light (OT/instigator/social butterfly) rallied the troops as soon as we arrived in Rochester, and the offensive line descended on a BBQ joint named “Dinosaur B-B-Que”. We ordered some ribs, wings, meat, and beer...
