Uh Hideki…?

Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui annouced his marriage today at a press conference, his wife didn’t show up so he did the apparently next best thing, by drawing a picture and holding it up next to him. Supposedly his new wife is a 25 year old woman, but I think it is just as likely she is a graphic novel character. That honeymoon is going to be epic. I for one do not want to be vacationing anywhere near it…

“Barry Who? Never Heard of Him…”

The San Francisco Giants have purified their stadium and removed all images and remnants of Barry Bonds from the premises. Certainly now no one will ever associate the two together again.

As Barry slowly approaches trial for perjury it seems that the team wants no negative connotations to overwhelm what should be the worst or second worst team in all of baseball. It is not like, without Barry Bonds, that incredible stadium of theirs wouldn’t exist right? Or that the only reason that the team got any coverage in the last few years was because of Barry.

I Can Do Tricks With My Balls Too…

Check out these ridiculous moves done by some kids in Mexico, even if you don’t like soccer, they’re pretty amazing.

You should see me with a Ping-Pong Paddle, I can totally bounce it for like 80 times in a row, so that’s similar…

Annual Rite of the MLB Season #42

Today, the San Diego Padres as expected placed Mark Prior on the 60-day DL while he rehabs from shoulder surgery. For Prior this is a return to a place he knows best, having been on the DL at some point every year since 2003 and hasn’t pitched a full season since Dusty Baker destroyed his career and future that same year.

I for one hope that he comes back. I’ve always like Prior because his curve ball is sick, his mechanics are flawless and because I drafted him in the first round of a fantasy draft like an idiot in 2004. Also, I drafted him this year in one of my fantasy leagues as my final pick, and think that, if he can be healthy, we could see maybe 8-11 wins and 130 Ks from June forward. Maybe.

Possibly.

A-Rod Simply “Not Bright Enough”

In today’s NY Post there is an interview with former bullpen catcher Mike Borzello of the Yankees about Jose Canseco’s most recent steroid allegations against Alex Rodriguez. According to Borzello, who says that “nobody in the last four years, including his wife because she wasn’t on the road, spent more time with Alex than I did,” and that there is simply no way that A-Rod did any illegal performance enhancing drugs.

During the period that Canseco details Borzello didn’t know A-Rod but he claims that Rodriguez might have an occasional beer, but otherwise is “afraid of drugs and alcohol.” Therefore, to Borzello’s mind, there is simply no way that Canseco can be telling the truth.

“In four years I was with him 24 hours a day, and not one time did I ever hear, see or get wind of anything having to do with performance enhancing drugs, steroids, HGH, anything. No way, with as much as this guy trusted me, would he have kept that part of his life secret from me. He trusted me with everything, and I was with him every day all day long. It would have been impossible to show me everything behind the curtain except for this. He is not that bright to be able to pull that off.” [emphasis added]

We’re All Gonna Die!

Scientists have announced that a giant 1500 year old block of ice broke off from the Wilikens ice shelf in Antarctica. The block of ice–9 times the size of Manhattan–itself is no great danger to humans, but is a disturbing sign of things to come and portends to rises in the ocean levels that would cause massive disaster zones.

I’m trying to do my part and am going to start sharing rides in my whip from now on.

Carpool lane!
