Bye Bye Buddy!

boyerbartonIn a boring bit of baseball bartering, the Atlanta Braves bumped Blaine Boyer out of their bullpen — and beyond the borders of the Big Peach — in exchange for Brian Barton of the St. Louis Cardinals. The beer barons of Budweiser who built the basically brand-new ebullient Busch Stadium, believe Boyer will bolster their own beleaguered bullpen; Barton meanwhile will battle for ball-playing opportunities below the big leagues — in AAA.

Married to the Sea

One of my friends passed this link onto me today, these guys have been around for a while but their comics are pure gold, unlike last night’s Treasure Divers HD, where they found nothing. Sigh.

During this lovely spring break, we should all take time to really enjoy ourselves
