    I feel simultaneously jealous/bad for Oakland A's fans.


    Damn I had so many happy memories watching Manny Play:

    I went through my rookie card collection not to long ago, to see how many of them that I have that are tainted by the steroids era is a damn shame.

    I'm happy they are trying to be original... but damn I hope that can handle a ball/bat/intense blazing heat/sunlight.

    Chipper Jones has announced that this season will be his last. First-ballot HOFer? I think so.

    As an aside, Chipper stopped by my office many years ago to sign baseballs and take pictures. (He was a hunting buddy of a friend of my then-boss.) Like most professional athletes, he is much bigger in person than he appears on television.

    yeah Jones is a first ballot HOFer. honestly about 2 good seasons from 3000 hits and 500 HRs.

    Any seamheads that get a chance should read this week's ESPN the magazine. There is a DEAD ON article on the new Marlin's stadium (blocks from the apartment) that really nails many of the issues with this piece of shit. There's also a great article on pitching biomechanics and its reluctance to be accepted into baseball.

    I really hope Chone Figgins doesn't suck this year.

    Bold prediction: It will be well into April before...

    1) The Mariners lose a game.
    B) Oakland wins a game.
    III) A regular season game gets wrapped up in 9 innings.

    The Marlins stadium looks like that big ship in District 9 surrounded by these shoddy homes.

    Mariners-Athletics games are incredibly boring. I'm pretty sure there were a couple A's-M's series last year where less than 10 runs were scored combined over the entire series. Given that the two teams play one another over a dozen times a season, and usually those games are incredibly close, I'm sure we're in the running for one of the boringest rivalries in pro sports.

    fuck the a's. still wondering why money ball was a phenomenon. it's like writing a book/producing a movie about the houston rockets
