One thing I thought about tonight was the tradeability (sp) of Wilkerson.  He's relatively low priced and he can should be able to be traded easier with the lower salary for a quality 3 or 4 pitcher the Rangers desperately need.  I just pray the Rangers don't go out and blow $20 million on Clemens.  Don't get me wrong, the Rocket is great, but he's not a long term player and that is what the Rangers need.  Like I said earlier, they need to throw the money at Matt Morris and Jarrod Washburn...that and take out that ******* Gold Club behind home plate that has turned the ballpark into a launching pad.

We all knew Soriano was gonna get dealt, but I'm surprised they got no big arm in return.

I have no faith in the Rangers front office.  They've done this time and time again, let a great player go and get nothing in return.  Most of us knew Soriano was going elsewhere, but I thought the focus wasgoing to be on picking up a new starter...hopefully Matt Morris or Washburn.

But there is a lot of off season left and truly there have been very few deals made yet (except for the Marlins garage sale).  I'm sure in January we'll see several deals made.

I was so hoping Texas would be able to pick up Pierre.  We need a CF like nobody's business.  I can't remember the last "real, solid" CF we had.

Thanks guys!!

My day included almost 5 extra hours or work at school because of a parent/student thing that I'm involved with.  I didn't get home until 9 last night.  My wife though took half the day off and spent it getting to watch me teach my semi-insance 13-14 year olds.  When I got home, my wife had bought Ep III for me.  I'm taking it to work today to watch during my conference period.

Not a bad day all in all, but I wish I could have spent more than an hour or so at home.

6 years ago today.  I puked on my 23rd birthday after mixing beer and hard liquor for a while. I was getting a send off before I left for basic and a birthday bash all rolled into one.   Matter of fact, that's the last time I got blasted.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Would you give up collecting for a woman?
« on: December 4, 2005, 03:57 PM »
In a life or death situation, yeah, I'd give it up.  Afterall, my hobby is really just bits and pieces of plastic and cardboard. ;D

My wife doesn't like Star Wars and my collecting drives her nuts.  That said, she gets the time with me she needs and she understands that I've been a fan all my life and was collecting for years before she and I met.  She understands that it's just part of me.  She also knows that there are numerous other hobbies I could have that would be detrimental to our marriage.

When I spend money on my hobby, she usually will spend money on her hobby.  All in all, it evens out...but I do know my wife is tired of SW and thinks I'm a nerd for chatting on message boards. ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: RS deletes accounts
« on: December 3, 2005, 04:26 PM »
I just contacted Joe Michael (33884 at RS) about some stuff he had bought from me.  He said the check was sending the check out a week ago, but just "picked it up today."  Whatever the **** that means.  He said he was waiting for me to contact him.  What???  I contacted him when we had agreed to a sale price on my stuff.

He said in his email the check was headed out to me today.  His typing, or grammar maybe, is absolutley terrible.  Does anybody have any other background info on him?

I may give him a few days and then if the check doesn't show, I'll tell him to **** off and I'll sell my stuff elsewhere.

Anyhow, sorry to bother the board with my rambling this Saturday afternoon.

The flex cuffs are actually from a website that specializes in 12" figures and their equipment. 

My wife rolled her eyes when I started working on this and told me to pick a hobby.  I'm ready to start another one.

I posted this in the Other Toy Lines forum, but would like to get a bit more exposure over here.

Being in the USAF Security Forces, I thought I'd make a bit of a tribute to the guys still on the far side of the world still fighting the good fight.  No politics intended here. 

Questions and comments are welcome.

I thought about getting into collecting GI Joe, but my wife says I need to pick one hobby and stay with it.  So I'm staying with Star Wars.  I may try to pick up a Flint or Dusty figure at some point.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Vintage vs Modern
« on: November 27, 2005, 08:21 AM »
Over the past year or so I've been selling off bits and pieces of my modern collection for the same purpose.  I was trying to get each basic figure MOC, but I got tired of doing that, so I sold off the boring Saga collection first.  That's the only full set I've sold, but I've also debated dumping my POTJ and POTF figures as well.  Now, I collect mainly vintage and don't get much of anything modern except for clones.

Go for the vintage.  It's a bit more expensive, but like you pointed out, there is no time crunch.  Also, part of the fun is getting a good deal on something.  If you loose out or decide not to pick up a figure, there is always another one that can be picked up later.
