For some reason I like the Royals. I am from New Orleans. Who else am I gonna cheer for? The Astros?

I believe I'm 24. But one can never be too sure since the year changes constantly.

OT - Small excerpt of Posnanski's Paterno

27

"The full excerpt will be published ... on Monday, August 20." I ran across this, and thought I'd link it since there's been some discussion about this book and Posnanski on this site before. "I have spent my whole life trying to make that name mean something. And now it's gone."

Good news for Royals fans outside of the market, today seems to be the Royals for mlb.tv's free game of the day.

In discussing what we might call the blog form, ... it turns out a lot of the guys that are really good at it are already part of the sbnation network. I'm thinking particularly of Jeff Sullivan or Will McDonald who writes over there.

mlb.com talks to Hillman about mlb.com's favorite subject--the Yankees

Why is this a story on mlb.com? Is this reporter his friend trying to get him a job with the Yankees or something?

Huber sighting!

9

So I live in Japan now which means I'll get the same amount of coverage I've gotten of the Royals when I lived in New Orleans. None. Anyway, I was sitting and watching a Hiroshima Carp game and up comes someone named ヒューバー. That's Hyuubaa... Huber! Then he flew out. That was more Huber I saw than when he was on the Royals!

Vote Greinke for Pepsi Clutch Performer of April

3

I hate this award. I hate Pepsi. I hate the notion of clutch. I especially hate that this two-year-old award has nothing to do with even the traditional notion of clutch, as it has always just nominated the best players rather than about anything clutch. So, I guess on second thought it does in fact line up with my notion of clutch, since clutch is just the best player. Anyway, that's not the point. Vote for Greinke.

Yankee opening day. I guess MLBN is still a little biased.

Why are they introducing the Yankees with the Star Wars main theme? Is this their response to Baltimore introducing them with the Evil Empire theme? But why something so trite and boring? Why not something cool like Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 or Shostakovich's Leningrad? Also, can someone tell me what is so beautiful about a building like Yankee Stadium? Or do I have to be there? Citi Field looked cooler than this. All I've got is questions.

Selig the Hypocrite

I've never been more annoyed at this weasel of a man. And that's saying something. Mr. Power Trip wants to do everything to Alex Rodriguez to punishment. Oh by the way, he hates Bonds. Hey, guys, pleeeease remember me as the commissioner who hates steroids!

A-Rod destroys our national innoncence.

Is not even A-rod, the player who never had a controversy in his life, free from such mess?

Bank rethinking Mets deal

"Citigroup Inc. is exploring the possibility of backing out of a nearly $400 million marketing deal" ahahaha, you think so? Also: "It was the primary sponsor of the Rose Bowl last month, and is the sponsor of the 2010 BCS National Championship Game."

The new key to getting traded to a contender: be really, really bad at what you do so that you get run out of town.

As we've all commiserated with each other, Baseball Tonight is an awful experience if you don't want to sit through ten minutes of "analysis" after a Mets game highlight that consists of ex-players fumbling around trying to explain why firing a manager didn't actually change anything. It's especially bad for us Royals fans, so I've taken to watching MLB wraps on their website. Watch the first 30 seconds of yesterday's game. It seems the Royals even bores them.

The Amazin' Pitchers

"It's hard to explain," he said. "I think we're just getting everybody in the right frame of mind as far as how we're going to attack hitters. My first year of watching this, that wasn't even baseball. And the front office has done a great job of getting guys that throw strikes. Now we just teach them how to pitch." ... "I asked Mac, 'As a manager, am I monitoring the health of our arms good enough up to this point?'" Hillman said. "And that's a question I'm going to be asking him a lot, because the one thing that I have not done is manage this length of a season -- the 162-game season in six months I have not done."
