Thursday, October 21st, 2004

Cards win! Cards win!. The Cardinals won game 7 of the NLCS over the Astros 5-2. This was one of the greatest LCS (both of them) to ever fall into place before our eyes. I will go in to more of that tomorrow, by doing a ...

Is Scott Rolen funny?

Thursday, October 14th, 2004

As you might be able to pick up from just a couple of times visiting this site, I'm a baseball fan. I'm not one of those guys that can tell you who played 2nd base and what batting average he had against left-handed relivers on tuesdays playing on astroturf, ...

Saturday, July 31st, 2004

Yes, I'm going into "baseball mode"...prepare yourselves! First off, if you missed any of the big trades, Jason Stark has a good article where he sums up the winners and losers of the trade deadline and kind of goes through what happened. Check it. So what are the biggest impact trades that ...

Happy 4,000th Randy Johnson!

Tuesday, June 29th, 2004

Randy Johnson just threw his 4,000th strikeout! That makes him just the fourth pitcher in Major League Baseball history to get to 4,000. Not only that, but Johnson is also the fastest pitcher ever to get to 4,000, and in my opinion, he could easily move up to ...

The Pistons Win The Finals 4 games to 1 I don't even like basketball, but this was pretty fun to watch. Thats all. I told you I don't like basketball, so I really don't have much to say about it.

Welcome to a new level of crappiness

Wednesday, May 5th, 2004

As part of a marketing alliance between Major League Baseball Properties, Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, webbed logos of the upcoming film "Spider-Man 2" ...

Tuesday, March 30th, 2004

Well if anyone has nothing to do this morning at 4 AM (CST) then switch on ESPN to see Major League Baseball's 2004 Opening Day! Are some of you thinking: "Why the hell would the first offical pitch of the MLB season be on at 4 AM?" Good ...

Mike’s Baseball Pics

Friday, March 5th, 2004

American League: EAST- 1. Boston: "Their line up, lacks slightly compared to New York, but they have a dynamite rotation." 2. New York: "A-Rod + same dominate line-up + better bullpen - Left-handed Starting pitching = Wild Card, but NOT the division over Boston." 3. Toronto: "A lot of people discount Toronto...you won't find one in me." 4. ...
