    Are you kidding me? Smoke's gambling career here mirrors Brock's, except he actually knows/contributes less to SBR than his former mentor, if that's at all possible.

    Guys like Smoke are wet dreams to SBR.

    Dude, look at your posting career here. Yeah, you've hit a few bets in the past week. Wow. I'd love to see your overall record tallied up, but of course that's not going to happen.

    JJ knows that you are a cash cow to SBR.

    Defending Joe D = your stupidity in a nutshell.

    I don't have to hate on Dumars -- he does fine burning down the house all by himself, as he's done for eight straight years now. But hey, at least tickets are cheap now at The Palace and you can afford them. Maybe I'll go to a game next year and holler at you from across the arena -- I'm assuming you'll be the one in the XXXXXL Isiah jersey.

    At least you didn't beat the closer!

    Don't understand how the Indians weren't a good play here. You may dislike Kaz, but you have to dislike the Marlins bats a lot more, doesn't matter what lineup they post.

    Marlins are 27-24 in the past two months. Did you even know that?

    Do you know whose other mantra is "wait 'til next year"?

    How you can defend Dumars for what he's done to that franchise in recent years is beyond me, but whatever.

    People love the Knight trade, forgetting the fact that Joe D. was the one who took Knight ahead of guys like Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard in '11.

    Every single move Joe D made this offseason you criticized

    You need to relax

    And how about the drummond pick a year ago? I guess that was a terrible pick right?

    He made moves to cover up for stupid moves he's made in the past, which has become his M.O.

    My favorite Piston of all time, but the guy's a train wreck in the front office. Period.

    You need to grow up and put the man-sized jerseys away. You aren't 13 anymore.

    It's 2013 man. Get with the program. Dumars hasn't done anything right since bringing Rasheed to Detroit.

    Typical Michigander -- living in the past, getting shit on in the present, yet hoping someday, it'll all turn around. LOL.

    Why are you using wins and losses within two months? What's specifically significant about that number? Why not one month? Why not three months? Why not 1.5 months? Or 2.6?

    What? Umm, because it's the two most recent months of games?

    Sure, but what's significant about the most recent two months? Why not the most recent one month? Or the most recent three months? Is there an algorithm that tells you that two months of games, in this case 51 games, is the perfect sample size? Would adding one more to make it 52 make your evaluation less optimal?

    You made the observation that betting on a sub-par road pitcher and a sub-par road team as a favorite with many of their regulars resting against a ballclub that's played very well in recent months was somehow a good bet. That is all.

    I made the observation that the Marlins can't hit. The Marlins did not hit. "Very well in recent months" is extremely subjective. You've cherrypicked a time range of two months that makes them look better than they are. That is all.

    They're over .500 in the last 50 games. It's not like that's a small sample size. You made that observation when the game was past its midway point, but go ahead and pat yourself on the back for it anyway.

    Hey, I have an even bigger sample size. It'll totally blow your mind. The Miami Marlins were... get ready... 43-66 on the season going into this game. Crazy, right?
