Way OT: Dear Stirrups...

If Stirrups gave relationship advice to the lovelorn - assuming he doesn't already - is this what it would look like? Regardless, I immediately thought of Stirrups when I saw this. May the flowchart be with you.

AN AVERAGE COMPARISON, 2009 VS. 2011

All HH'ers can see the Angels have fielded a pathetic offense this year. How pathetic? Here's a comparison to the glory days of 2009...or one specific glory day anyway.

There's so much more wrong with this photo than meets the eye. And no, I didn't engage in a gratuitous Photo Shop exercise. This was taken in the 2nd inning of Saturday's game at Goodyear Ballpark.

OT, Stan the Man Turns 90

5

So, here's my quirky off-season past of the year. On Sunday, 11/21, Stan Musial turned 90 years old. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch had this article on 90 reasons to love The Man. There are many to love. My favorites? #2, #6, and #12 are great, but the real testaments to his character are #74-76. A man above. A man apart. What's your favorite?

Accountability? Ask Joe West...or not

12

Joe West made 2 controversial calls in Saturday's game. How does he respond to questions? He doesn't...in fact, he left it to a security guard to respond with "no comment": "West did not comment after the game. A security guard stationed outside the umpires' dressing room informed West that a reporter was waiting outside, but the guard returned with a message from West that umpires won't be making any comments the rest of the season - and that all requests should be made through Major League Baseball."

Atkins Will Not Be The New Mighty Q

Why would any rational ballplayer willingly sign with the Orioles? Buried behind the Yanks, Sox and Rays. Signing to play for the lowest form of life on earth, a personal injury attorney (Peter Angelos). I hope Atkins doesn't expect crabcakes to taste like rockie mountain oysters...
