Fister Took Bullpen Assignment In Stride Wants To Start Again - RealGM Wiretap
Doug Fister began the season as a starter Cheap Air Max 1 Outlet , but the Washington Nationals moved him to the bullpen when they decided to move Joe Ross into the rotation.

Fister also dealt with forearm tightness and was taken off the disabled list on June 18th.

"Right about the time I went into the bullpen, I was starting to figure things out, getting healthy. Obviously, being in the bullpen has allowed me to have the time to figure things out," Fister said. "The last few outings, I have been getting into that groove of who I am, what I do and how I do it, whether it's mechanical or the mental side of the game. I had a lot of time to think and reassess where I am."

The 25-year-old hasn't thought much about free agency, but he does want to start again.

"I haven't really looked at it. As of right now, I'm still in this uniform," Fister said. "I'm a pitcher on this team. … I' haven't really looked into [free agency]. Someday Cheap Air Max 95 Outlet , I would like to be a starter again, whether it's here or somewhere else. How many days we have here? I will wear this uniform proudly and continue to do so."

Decency All of nature has rules. Although unwritten and unspoken, in a primitive and savage way, right and wrong still exist there. The alpha wolf decides what is right in the pack because it possesses the physical power to exert its will. A tree may dictate what is right by exuding allelopathic chemicals into the soil out to its root perimeter in order to extinguish competing plants. A lion takes prey from a hyena and a hyena takes it from a leopard because that is the order of things and therefore the right thing. Instinct and physical attributes decree this form of morality in nature. Humans also require rules. Society, the in-your-face conglomeration of masses of people possessing tools and weapons that can inflict damage far beyond that of mere fang and claw, requires lots of rules and lots of alpha enforcement. Otherwise the population would regress to a might-makes-right brutal anarchy. Aside from maintaining basic order and security, it is a necessary function of government to set rules of decency. Decency lies in that more abstract middle ground between overt violence and criminality on the one hand, and peace and security on the other. Because definitions are not crisp, debate will always rage over what is or is not decent. This is also thought of as a soft arena of behavior since it is hard to identify actual damage caused by such things as vulgarity, lewdness, debauchery Cheap Air Max 90 Outlet , indiscretion, nakedness, sex and language. Those fearing the decay of society will hold to more inclusive definitions and more strict standards. Others object to any controls over nonviolent behavior, feeling they are unnecessarily intrusive and invade personal rights and freedoms. Who芒鈧劉s right? Don't get me wrong with what follows. I'm no prude. Terrible things emerge from my lips at times without my mind even engaging. I can't help but laugh at some off-color jokes. But aren芒鈧劉t there lines we all sense that should not be erased. These lines may in fact create the emotional release from swearing and the humor of a dirty joke. So standards of decency may even psychologically benefit us by giving us forbidden zones to light heartedly poke at. (Seems like rather twisted logic to explain why swearing and dirty jokes work, but what other explanation do you have?) When I was young, Elvis's gyrating hips drove religious leaders and many parents crazy. It was the end of decency. Sodom and Gomorrah had returned. I scoffed. The old fogies just didn't get it. In my opinion, rock-n-roll was way too cool and certainly no more than innocent fun. I saw no danger because I had not lived enough life nor gained sufficient knowledge to understand that civilization survives only because of standards and order. Society was sensing a threat and that is why they reacted to rock-n-roll as they did. Maybe that's the way kids see the filthy language in rap, hip-hop and sexually explicit entertainment today. So I am trying hard to see the parallel and make every effort to be tolerant, not wanting to be like the adult mossbacks of my youth. But everything is a matter of degree. When is 芒鈧渨ith-it芒鈧劉 too far? Or is there no limit? Should the entertainment industry keep pushing the envelope until pornography is rated G and the evening news gives an update from live video cams mounted in bathrooms? Must children be exposed to what goes on under the covers of S&Mers, transvestites, man-boy couples Cheap Air Max Outlet , necrophiliacs, homosexuals and straight-sexers? When that gets boring do we go to live videos of rape, murder and torture? There are currently movies of this sort and they are justified as 芒鈧渁rtful free expression.芒鈧劉 Really. Is watching murder and torture what we should be doing with our minds and leisure? Is it valuable in any conceivable way? Might it not be numbing and create insensitivity, particularly in our impressionable children? Since children know that adults 芒鈧€?moms and dads 芒鈧€?create such entertainment, might they not feel that such behavior is validated? Should we bring back the Roman Coliseum to get some extra flavor of real, live performance? If we can afford the special front row seats, we could even enjoy the thrill of hearing bones break, getting sprayed with some real blood or having a lopped-off appendage land in our lap as a souvenir. The Romans worked hard to prevent boredom among the citizens. For over 400 years the cruelty and gore for man and beast in the arena took on every imaginable grotesque creative form in order to maintain the interest of audiences. Shall we go that route again? Why not? Why draw lines? Let's not lose audience attention or record, ticket or advertising dollars. Clear standards seem to be vanishing fast. There is now bare-fisted, no-hold.
