Random thoughts...

I could discuss the double loss by the Royals, but nahhhh..... although it sucks TWICE as bad when you lose twice in one night.

Random facts I learned today.

Adam Vinatieri and Evel Knievel were cousins.

The chick who plays Sweet D and the guy who plays Mac on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are married in real life.

And rumor mill of the day is saying now that J-simpson and Romo the Homo have parted ways, she met Tim Tebow at the ESPY's and is all up on that now. Interesting.

Sometimes you win....

sometimes you lose, and sometimes it rains....think about it.

Royals rained out yesterday, double header today....Ponson gets a turn first and then Chen. Chen is freaking due, hopefully if nothing else we can go 1-1. Even more fun is figuring out where Skip might place everyone today. More on that HERE. Injuries have not been our friend this season.....
11 and a half games back...I feel a streak coming on. Hope it is the winning kind not the losing.

Phils are hot as fuck right now. I am following this Halliday thing more closely now, as I just have a feeling he is gonna be the newest addition to their arsenal.

And I thought NOTHING good ever came about from reality TV. Leave it to that wacky Irvin.

THIS aired last night, and I hate to admit but I had to DVR it jus to see. I love to hate the man...

The Heartbreak Kids....

I really and truly hoped that we could come back from the All-Star break with a renewed sense of hope. Half the season done, and we have a chance to still be a .500 ball club. Greinke is still shining, and some new acquisitions have made some positive shifts, and now A. Gord back on the field.

Wrong again, toots, wrong again.

Drop our first series after the break, but not only lose, we made it a freaking art form. Leading late in games with leads, our pen just can NOT get it done. We are making errors and no matter how well we are hitting, our late pitching and infield ball handling are killing us. Game recaps HERE.
Meche and the dreaded back spasms again have brought Ponson up. Ponson is one of those guys you never know what your gonna get.

Hall of Fame opened Friday night, and I missed it, but wanted to share THIS tribute video. Great coach, great man....Angels in town for a home stand. I hope we can get it together a lil bit more. Can't wait till Gordon starts swinging the bat well again.

In other news, Vick finally released today....ready to hear some speculation as to who might be interested in him. There are some definite teams who could use him. I think the man has served his time, reinstate the guy.....

Naked Erin Andrews has been all over the net this morning. I think it sucks she got her privacy jenkied, if that is truly what happened. Sporty 14 year old boys across the country probably have starched tube socks and sore wrists today. Had it been Bonnie B, I would have been first in line to download it! :)

Pokin my head in....

Just to throw THIS up. So, we decide to pay the proven bench warmer now, rather than later. I don't understand it, but I guess there could have been some pressure from Cassel's agent for the deal. We have the money now, but we would have had it later, and honestly if Cassel could go out and prove himself for a year, he would have pocketed a bigger deal I am fairly sure. Is a gamble. Pay him now and keep your fingers crossed I guess.

I really hope he can step up and prove all the critics wrong.

Sorry for the lack of posting...All-Star breakdown and Winter Classic updates are owed, I promise.

Welcome Farney!!

R's pick up Ryan Freel and waste NO time putting him into action last night for our clusterfuck loss.
Fast and acrobatic, hopefully he can fill some of the spots we got due to injuries, you half our team. But most notably...Freel is nuts. Hey, we straightened Greinke out, so maybe there is hope. We are like the psyche ward of the MLB. I say Freel could be a lil off his rocker?

Meet Farney...Freel gained some notoriety in August of 2006 when The Dayton Daily News reported that Freel talks to an imaginary voice in his head named Farney. Said Freel: "He's a little guy who lives in my head who talks to me and I talk to him. That little midget in my head said, 'That was a great catch, Ryan,' I said, 'Hey, Farney, I don't know if that was you who really caught that ball, but that was pretty good if it was.' Everybody thinks I talk to myself, so I tell 'em I'm talking to Farney." Freel later said that Farney's name arose from a conversation with Reds trainer Mark Mann: "He actually made a comment like, 'How are the voices in your head?' We'd play around and finally this year he said, 'What's the guy's name?' I said, 'Let's call him Farney.' So now every body's like, 'Run, Farney, run' or 'Let Farney hit today. You're not hitting very well.'" (makes finger around ear circle coo-coo motion)

Chen pitched ugly last night and even though our bats were there, him giving up some serious bombs makes up come up short. Verlander is always tough on us, and so I think we hit good, just got out hit. Greinke up tonight. I'm ready to see something absolutely dynamic out of him again!

First off, a lil side by side fun....inspired by my cartoon watching ass and the fact I got to see Skip Lou come out of the dugout this weekend...

I have been watching a lot of round ball, I just have not been emoting it to you all. Sorry...yeah, I know I suck.

Royals...well...we seem to be on a roller coaster ride. BUT, OMG ZACK GREINKE...our own lil All-Star treasure. Also with his schedule, he should be the starting pitcher...EXCITING!!
