I guessed what they were going to say before reading. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Mariano Rivera must be losing his nerve...all five pitches to Callaspo (L) to get the 3rd out were on the outside half.

Best quote from this excellent article: "Ron Paul...makes more sense than any crazy person to ever run for public office..."

http://www.cnn.com/2011/OPINION/08/11/moore.perry.candidate/index.html
As a resident of Texas for 36 years, I keep wondering why the rest of the nation pays any attention to our political and cultural absurdities and yet still chooses Texans as presidents. Our most rever...

Quote about Michele Bachmann from Maureen Dowd column:

“The power behind our campaign is hope and a future,” she (M.Bachmann) chirped to a sparse crowd Monday in Atlantic, Iowa. “That’s all I believe in.” That and making America safe for old-fashioned light bulbs and not those weird curly ones.

Top ten reasons to keep going to Citi Field (from NYTs):

No. 10. For the remainder of the season, fans will be selected at random to play second base.
No. 9. Beautiful sunset view over Manhattan from the Pepsi Porch.
No. 8. You’re safe from getting hit by a home run.
No. 7. To find a date. (If any person is able to handle all that disappointment and still keep showing up, you’ve found a person who will stick with you through the tough times.)
No. 6. The apple will now pop up whenever Jason Bay gets an extra-base hit.
No. 5. They have started using real batting helmets for Carvel ice cream sundaes.
No. 4. Great parking for the U.S. Open.
No. 3. Thanks to the New York State Senate, Mr. Met will finally be able to marry the San Diego Chicken in an on-field ceremony this September.
No. 2. Because when you call up to order tickets and ask them what time the game starts, the clerk says, “What time can you be here?”
No. 1. Ollie Perez won’t be pitching!

# 5 is the best!

Further notes on Larry Doby vs. Jackie Robinson (both great players, trail blazers and worthy of HOF):
Robinson was the first AA player in the majors, Doby started the same year, 6 weeks later and was the first AA in the American League
Robinson lead the league in key offensive categories 3 times (1 BA, 1 OBP, 1 SB), Doby led his league 7 times (2 HR, 1 RBI, 1 OBP, 1 Slugging, 1 OPS, 1 Runs)
Robinson lifetime stats .311 BA/137 HR/734 RBI/1518 H/.883 OPS/oWAR 52, Doby .283 BA/253 HR/871 RBI/1515 H/.876 OPS/oWAR 46
Robinson won 1 MVP, Doby was second in MVP voting once
Robinsom won Rookie of the Year in 1947 with .297 A/12 HR/870 OPS, Doby was not a regular in 1947 but his first full year as a regular was 1948 .301 A/14 HR/873 OPS
Robinson was the first AA to play in a WS (1947), Doby was the first AA to be on a WS winning team and the first to hit a WS HR (1948)
Robinson was the first AA Baseball announcer on TV, Doby was the second AA manager in MLB (White Sox)
Robinson was elected to the HOF in his first season of eligibility/has his number retired by every team in MLB/was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Doby waited 25 years after his first year of eligibilty and has his number retired by only the Clevelend Indians...WTF?
The Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Bill Livingston wrote, "The Larry Doby way of pioneering was the same as the Jackie Robinson way in the National League, only Doby's debut occurred six short weeks later and with almost no advance preparation by Doby or the Indians..[it was like being] the second man to invent the telephone."

My next HOF rant will be on the single season HR record holder, Roger Maris...

3rd base coach always gets blamed when runner is thrown out at the plate. Let's give Rob Thomson some creidt for catching Branderson's eye as he rounded 2nd, causing him to pick up the pace and score.

I wonder why we didn't send anything to the shark?


Frito-Lay shares snacks with Funyuns fan recovering from shark attack

Technical Manager Craig Hoffman from Frito-Lay's Perry, Ga., site recently helped share Frito-Lay snacks with a Fort Worth, Texas, boy recovering from a shark attack. The Victoria Advocate shared the story of 12-year-old Nicholas Vossler, who was bitten by a shark earlier this summer during a beach vacation with his family. While recovering in the hospital following surgery, Vossler asked for a bag of Funyuns. After hearing about this request, Craig arranged for Vossler to receive a gift package full of Funyuns and other Frito-Lay treats.
The Vossler family wrote to Frito-Lay to say, "Thank you so much for the bag of goodies. It definitely brightened Nicholas' day."
