    You may have noticed a slight change in format. We run three daily features around these parts. Of course, by daily, we mean if we don’t drink too much the night before and are able to get our buts out of bed in a reasonable manner. Well, we are going […]

    Angels 9, Devil Rays 1. Don’t blame us. We said we wouldn’t be surprised if the Rays lost 10-1….We are never apologists for starting pitchers. We hate it when somebody says a pitcher threw a great game but just “made a couple of mistakes.” It is the biggest gop-out in […]

    The Return Of Jorge Cantu: Iwamura to DL

    Jorge Cantu is back. Akinori Iwamura was placed on the DL today with a strained oblique muscle and Cantu was recalled from Durham to take his place. Honestly we are a bit surprised that Cantu was the choice, although there really isn’t a lot of offensive talent at Durham right […]
