    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.

    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.
