I've been given to understand, that under the proper circumstances, with the appropriate application of heat and seasonings, the species Crotalus atrox does, indeed, taste like chicken.
Who's up for some vipère au vin?
I really hope you guys take it to the D-Backs!
I feel like such a toaster slut today!?! :o) LOL!
Does that just go down as a megadeal that just happened to work out for both sides? Do we not know until we see what Sanchez grows into? Is Boston the winner since Beckett has gotten them to the playoffs?
I think it worked out well for both teams & Beckett is just an absolute SICK stud. In the long run though, who time will tell.
And think of it, the whole feast... is Toast!
Except you don't have to wonder if your #12 seed pick is going to pull an upset.
Well, of course, the Rockies and Red Sox are now clear favorites, but I meant before the first games.
The bad news for Cubs fans, Brandon Webb pitches well both at home and against the Cubs, including this current group.
This video is beyond despcription. It's something you need to see in order to not believe.
Would you have rooted for the Padres against the Phillies...?
Short Chris Young CF
Drew the Younger SS
But I'm on the Cubs' wagon, if for no other reason than that the Snakes obviously do not belong in the playoffs and though underdogs are cute there has to be some justice in the world.
My NL West stalwartness does not extend to San Francisco.
Elijah Wood is the most frightening creature ever imagined.
Perhaps I should be nominally nonpartisan.
It's in the DNA. And possibly the RNA.
10. Trevor Hoffman's last two games.
9. Brady Clark's defensive skills.
8. Letting David Wells go.
7. They wore mustard uniforms in their past.
6. They didn't resign Dave Winfield.
5. Milton Bradley stepped on Cameron's hand.
4. Milton Bradley's evil twin Meltdown Badly was his ghost runner on first last weekend.
3. Milton Bradley infected the team with his mere presence.
2. Tomko started a must win game on the last day of the regular season.
1. I hate the Padres.
Toaster Sluts .... yum ..... like baseball-shaped Pop Tarts!
(A nutritious way to start your morning, or move you from Philly at 3pm to Arizona at 10pm)
8. Letting David Wells go.
Ironically, "Acquiring David Wells" is on the Top Ten Reasons the Dodgers are not in the playoffs.
A 1992 Cragganmore Distillers Edition
His record was 4-1.
He also did this:
5 HRs in 38.2 innings
I mean that's 710 years. Someone must have been putting in overtime.
but he also had 32 homers and 27 stolen bases .... (Soriano lite) ...
Don't worry about it man, with Zambrano pitching today (extra adrenaline & all) I'm sure they'll be alright.
This could be another quick game unless it's a day for Wild Zambrano.
When the Cubs are in L.A. or San Diego, there are always a lot of Cubs fans in the stands. Not a lot of White Sox fans show up in Anaheim however.
The guy who saw all of 2 pitches in his first PA.
the Alou brothers perhaps?
Young saw an average of 3.83 pitches per plate appearance this year.
By comparison, Soriano saw 3.67.
Every team's fans abound.
Young: 212 leadoff inning plate appearances
(but yeah, neither one of them should be batting leadoff) :-)
I think there a couple more, but those come to mind.
This really is going to be another fast game. Put them together (BOSLAA + ARICHI) and they add up to one Yankees-Orioles game.
agreed Dianagramr, he is more a 4 or 5 middle of the order type hitter.
102 I'll let John know.
"Irish" is one of the ethnic designations you can give someone as a nickname without getting people upset.
All the players in the Short Season Amish League are called "English."
or Jason Giambi .... or Jeremy Giambi
You mean its not AugieDoggie Ojeda?
... with little kids. It was Kids' Group day, or something.
I think it's the big fence in center.
it definitely has an up the middle BIG to it, in the corners, not so much...
Is Bob Brenly the worst manager to win a World Series?
if Hurdle or Manuel win the Series, then they would trump any other for that dishonor
If you read the Griddle, you would know the top three current players in terms of games without a postseason appearance are Damion Easley, Jose Vidro, and Tony Batista.
Although we need Jeff Cirillo to get in to get him off the #1 spot.
[scratching head, who should I feel bad for]
Off the top of my head, I'd say Joe Altobelli.
But he did play in two postseason series at the time.
oh man, LOL! (timely hits!)
That reminds me... the 2001 Dbacks: the greatest PVL team of all time?
Cubs won out. I'll be damned if I don't watch a game today.
He seemed to be very hesitant to call Reynolds ball a homer.
So much for the tie.
Seriously, how long has it been since Darling went to Anaheim?
I heard the announcers say he's pitching on short rest.
Carmona pitches pretty quickly too.
But when the games go back to New York and the Westbrooks, Mussinas, and Clemenses pitch ...
1. To distract the opposing pitcher.
2. To be, not just on television, but the center of attention on television.
Dennys Reyes gave up a home run to Mark Kotsay last year on October 4. Inside the park too.
I like the Cubs tomorrow too, but I wouldn't overlook Davis who can be solid. I predict a 5-4 Cubs win though.
