Failed Prospect #19: Dave Wainhouse
Wainhouse was one of those weird rookies that showed up in 1989 Bowman and confused the hell out of me (along with Johnny Ard and Royce Clayton, among others). I had no idea what to make of him, as he never really seemed to be a viable prospect, and his time in the majors showed it: he had a career 7.37 ERA with a 2-3 record, 1.819 WHIP, and 66 ERA+.

The basis of Ottoman rule in Albania was a feudalmilitary system of landed estates, called timars, which were awarded to military lords for loyalty and service to the empire. As Ottoman power began to decline in the 18th century, the central authority of the empire in Albania gave way to the local authority of autonomy-minded lords. The most successful of these lords were three generations of pashas of the Bushati family, who dominated most of northern Albania from 1757 to 1831, and Ali Pasa Tepelenë of Janina (now Ioánnina, Greece), a colourful Oriental-type despot who ruled over southern Albania and northern Greece from 1788 to 1822. These pashas created separate states within the Ottoman state until they were overthrown by the sultan.
After the fall of the pashas, in 1831 Turkey officially abolished the timar system. In the wake of its collapse, economic and social power passed from the feudal lords to private landowning beys and, in the northern highlands, to tribal chieftains called bajraktars, who presided over given territories with rigid patriarchal societies that were often torn by blood feuds. Peasants who were formerly serfs now worked on the estates of the beys as tenant farmers.
Ottoman rule in Albania remained backward and oppressive to the end. In these circumstances, many Albanians went abroad in search of careers and advancement within the empire, and an unusually large number of them, in proportion to Albania's population, ...
A derogatory term referring to anyone from the North Prospect region of Plymouth UK. North Prospect was orginally called Swilly but they changed the name to North Prospect in an attempt to give the area a second chance. It failed.
Swillyites secretly aspire to the dizzying heights of being a plain 'Janner' however anyone moving out of the area would be attacked if they were to return for having dis'd their fellow swillites. When they are not appearing on the Jeremy Kyle show (entitled "My mothers my sister" for example)they are typically robbing each others houses or violating their asbos.
"Look at that guy's bowlcut"
"Yeah, what a Swillyite!"
making lots of money out of people's misery. part of the burgeoning 'new professions class' of the late 20thC and usually a socialist, liberal or worse. social workers took over where the church left off. may know the difference between right and wrong but doesn't see why it should apply to them. a secular priest, monk or nun who enforces politically acceptable thought and behaviour on the hapless, helpless and hopeless. talks complete psychobabble with no scientific foundation whatsoever. often pilloried for taking children into care or leaving them to die; whichever the press find most distressing at the time. almost always an insecure individual who should be having therapy not giving it.
MALE of type tries to compensate for the low social status by talking complete bollocks at the pub.
FEMALE, usually a cat owner, likely to be crazy as a coot and in medieval times would have been burned as a witch.
SW MANAGER has generally failed even at this low level and so exacerbates the public's woes with incompetence in leadership.
most SWs try to avoid mentioning it at parties or face the prospect of further rejection. secretly support the British National Party.
social worker; 'As a social worker, I like to consider the full psycho-socio-sexual-ethnic dynamic in operation in any given situation or mele before drawing a tentative conclusion or proposal. I mean, I may not even go so far as to reach a conclusion, perhaps only hinting at a possible resolution, if that's ok with you?, which may in fact or actually not even be so certain as that. Is that wrong d'ya think?? I believe people should be allowed to live their own lives without interference from the state until we interfere. Failure is a negative concept and I don't like to use that word. However, the true answer may only ever be 'Yes'...or...'No' or...'Maybe'.... and it's never absolutely cl..'
normal person; 'Sorry to interupt. I'm afraid it's too late, the child / old person has been battered into the next life!'
Albania, the country on the Adriatic coast of the Balkans.
country located in the western part of the Balkan Peninsula on the Strait of Otranto, the southern entrance to the Adriatic Sea. It encompasses an area of 11,100 square miles (28,748 square kilometres), with a maximum length from north to south of about 210 miles (340 kilometres) and a maximum width of about 95 miles. It is bounded to the northwest by Montenegro, to the northeast by the Kosovo region of Serbia, to the east by Macedonia, and to the southeast and south by Greece. To the west and southwest, Albania is bordered by the Adriatic and Ionian seas. Albania's immediate western neighbour, Italy, lies some 50 miles across the Adriatic. The capital city is Tiranë.
The origins of the Albanian people:more...
Data drawn from history and from linguistic, archaeological, and anthropological studies have led to the conclusion that Albanians are the direct descendants of the ancient Illyrians and that the latter were natives of the lands they inhabited. Similarly, the Albanian language derives from the language of the Illyrians, the transition from Illyrian to Albanian apparently occurring between the 4th and 6th centuries AD.
Illyrian culture is believed to have evolved from the Stone Age and to have manifested itself in the territory of Albania toward the beginning of the Bronze Age, about 2000 BC. The Illyrians were not a uniform body of people but a conglomeration of many tribes that inhabited the western part of the Balkans, from what is now Slovenia in the northwest to (and including) the region of Epirus, which extends about halfway down the mainland of modern Greece. In general, Illyrians in the highlands of Albania were more isolated than those in the lowlands, and their culture evolved more slowly—a distinction that persisted throughout Albania's history.
Authors of antiquity relate that the Illyrians were a sociable and hospitable people, renowned for their daring and bravery at war. Illyrian women were fairly equal in status to the men, even to the point of becoming heads of tribal federations. In matters of religion, Illyrians were pagans who believed in an afterlife and buried their dead along with arms and various articles inte...
Lives life in dark depressing areas such as schwag basements. To the common eye a Schwagendall or Kirkenschwag may appear as a normal person but after many failed attempts it is clear that the Schwagendall cannot obain pussy. His personal sexual orientation is not confirmed due to his multiple decades of repeated pussy futility. Enjoys the hobby of smoking herb, and by herb I mean other peoples herb of whom he is mooching off due to his persistent streak of being completely nugless and completely broke. BE WARNED although the Kirkenschwag house/schwagenbasement is always accessible there is rarely nug available to match and you will likely be smoking multiple coons down. (example listed below)In the schwagenhouse there are multiple 'creatures' or 'beings' that you must be aware of when entering for your own personal saftey and well being, they are as follows:more...
MONSTER-a large fat pot smoking kirk, has traits similar to ol' L Kirk himself such as mass percy videogamery and no pussy.
FAT BABY- a large fat baby... Plays a lot of videogames and eats a lot of food, occupies the KirkenTv (no cable) 24/7 or until removed by a fellow Schwagendall.
PFD- (Penis Face Dog)A large white dog. Of whom clearly wants to leave with you everytime you go, but also happens to shed more than life itself giving the Schwagenhouse a nice little white glimmer of allergic dog hair, to go along with the horrid stench of cat piss.
Schwagencar- Audible from 2 miles with its Hitchcock esque screech....
The Henchmen Motorcycle Club today is a California Non-Profit Corporation, their name and patch are copyrighted. It has had a history of chapters in various areas throughout the United States since the early 1970's, from Chicago and New Jersey to Southern California and Monterey. At one time over 300 members existed in Southern California with many members and chapters merging into the Hells Angels organization during their push to absorb other clubs during the late 70's. It has been due to this past "merging" that the club's size and areas of influence has varied through the years. At one time, the top and bottom "rockers" of their patch were red lettering on a white background. The clubs "colors" are what is called a "Three Piece" patch which have top and bottom "rockers" that have a combination of black and blue lettering on a grey background, with the center logo depicting a blue hooded executioner welding a double bladed axe.more...
