The Old Ballgame

Brian Sabean, Giants imbecilic GM, does a Flowers for Algernon this year and blossoms into a genius. Goes all KW and overpays for grindy, over the hill vets and abracadrabra is one game from the WS.

fyi It's spring training, time to work on your Wire references . HBO has The Wire On Demand right now starting with Season 1, Episode 1. For those who've been too cheap to buy the DVD, or too stupid/righteous to download the torrentz nowz your chantz. As riveting as the hours leading up Jim Thome's signing with the Twins. As compelling as Frank Thomas's retirement announcement. I haven't seen it for a few years, I might actually try to watch from A - Z. There's nothing else on TV drawing my interest right now. Mad Men has also been rotating through from Season 1 again.

Here he is, the man you've been waiting for, Erstad the Punter. Some fanboy put this up on youtube, highlights of Erstad punting his heart out for the Huskers during the Orange Bowl. But wait, there's more - did you know HE ALSO KICKS OFF?!?! I kid y

Here he is, the man you've been waiting for, Erstad the Punter. Some fanboy put this up on youtube, highlights of Erstad punting his heart out for the Huskers during the Orange Bowl. But wait, there's more - did you know HE ALSO KICKS OFF?!?! I kid you not. WTF Hawk, you never told me he kicked off. Not only that, he TACKLES. Starting at 1:35 he kicks off and tries to get in on the tackle, and a blocker just absolutely obliterates him - it's cleverly edited to cut out the part where he falls backwards on his ass.

Is it asking too much to see major leaguers?

It's become a running joke whenever the day's lineups are posted, but that's what it is - a joke.  Watching a steady parade of Ersucks, Pods, Cintron, Jesse, Toby and AGonz  (pardon me if I've...
