Fitting, but above the coupling.. So it's not just a case of adding some plumbers tape and tightening. Pretty sure the line needs replaced.

Not a huge deal.. Just a freaking cherry on top of a wonderful day!
Well at least it’s not the water heater lol. I hate plumbing. Those shark bite fittings are expensive but great for PVC and older copper lines, no glue or cleaner necessary

Yeah the heater itself is relatively new.. 3-4 years old.

Just that in top of the ants and foundation... Ugh... It was a lot for one day.

Life. It just keeps happening lol...

That’s the problem with how people view the players. I know a few players personally and I’ll give you a brief rundown on one specific players situation that I know the best

1) got 5k to sign out of college

2) spent 5 years in the minors making 1000-1500 a month living in apartments with 3-4 other players sleeping on the floor many times

3) got up to the big leagues last year for about 1/3 of the season and made under 200k.

4) should make the roster this year which would have made 550k but now that’s half at best and the owners want him to make less than half.

5) if he doesn’t perform his career is over after spending 7 years of his life making somewhere around 50k a year on average


The point is many many players are in situations like this and they don’t deserve to be talked about as being “greedy” “close to billionaires”
Eff them all

I Generally like you as a poster but that post doesn’t sit well.

I wish you knew the guys I know and knew how awful the financial situations are for a large majorly of professional baseball players. It truly is worse than minimum wage and I don’t think you’d have the “eff them all” response if you knew them personally

Btw Those owners in MLB many were defending this morning cut a **** load of minor league players today. They couldn’t handle the 400$ a week hefty salaries they were paying them
The owners are trying the players are the ones who need to step up. Wanting full salaries while the owners are already projected for losses in the billions. Give me a break. The players need to take their pay cut and play. And those players you talk about in your later posts I've seen it I know what happens I dont feel bad for them at all. They get room and board , food. Their laundry done. Gear and many other things from the team for cheap or at an extremely discounted rate. The players need to shut up and get on the field or don't and keep killing their sport because thats all theyre doing
