    Anyone going to GnR Sunday? 
    Annoying that they are not telling us who the opener is.  Have great seats....last time I had decent seats but for a Football Game.  ;)  This will be a much better view/sound.

    GnR kicked ass...played for 3+ hours and brought a better set than last year, delivered @ Wells Fago vs. The Linc.  Much better overall show, although I was more excited to see them last year.

    Not at all. I have zero interest in it, but I'll still most likely get the blue ray. I enjoy myself some loud, live PJ on the tube/surround sound when I'm not doing anything on a Friday night and want to pound beers and smoke. I don't see any reason to buy all this other crap that comes with it. But, again, if there's a PJ video I'm probably buying it.

    PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies have stepped up their managerial search.

    On Wednesday, sources said the Phillies are interviewing three internal candidates this week. Juan Samuel interviewed Tuesday, Jorge Velandia interviewed Wednesday and Dusty Wathan will interview before the weekend. The Phillies are expected to begin meeting with external candidates next week.

    Samuel, 56, has been a Phillies coach since 2011, including serving as third-base coach since '16. He is highly regarded and served as interim manager of the Orioles for 51 games in 2010.

    Velandia, 42, is a special assistant to Phillies general manager Matt Klentak. He fits the mold of the young, energetic, analytically-inclined candidate the Phillies seem to be seeking.

    Wathan, 44, is the Triple-A Lehigh Valley manager. He is a rising star based on how he has developed most of the team's talented young players and prospects.

    It is unclear if the Phillies have finalized their list of external candidates, but names like former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, Red Sox bench coach Gary DiScarcina, Astros bench coach Alex Cora, former Mariners bench coach Tim Bogar, former catcher David Ross and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing have been discussed. Certainly there are many others.

    Orioles manager Buck Showalter remains the biggest name connected to the Phillies' managerial opening because of his history with Phillies president Andy MacPhail and Klentak, but sources said there is no chance of Showalter coming to Philadelphia. Showalter is under contract through 2018, and there is no hope Orioles owner Peter Angelos will let him out of his deal.

    Former Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and former bench coach Larry Bowa also are not candidates. While Amaro is regarded as a managerial candidate, he doesn't make sense for the Phillies. Bowa is expected to remain in the organization, but not as a member of the big league coaching staff.

    Mackanin on stepping down

    The Phillies have had no shortage of suitors since they announced on the final weekend of the season that former manager Pete Mackanin has been reassigned to a front-office role. Most in the industry see the Phillies as an organization on the rise with talented, up-and-coming players on the big league roster, a deep farm system and an owner that is ready to spend millions to fill the holes they cannot fill internally.

    MacPhail said last week that he hopes the Phillies find their manager before the GM meetings, which begin Nov. 13. But it is not out of the question the Phillies can find their man before the end of the month.

    You see that story over the summer about Popper and some random guy on twitter going at it? Not sure of all the details but Popper doxed him, gave out the guy's personal info and was relentlessly arguing with this guy. Was pretty weird.

    I did not see that but will look for it.

    Also set the DVR -- and set it to tape the few hours beyond in the event the Yankees game runs long.

    TLA VIP is nice.  Seat drink service, front row balcony.  Arrived 90 mins after the GA folks entered.  You also cannot drink out on the floor (fuck that)
