For some reason, the site got really screwed up... I lost my draft posts (though the preview shows up in the archives, which is screwed up beond belief), which sorta sucks, and I'm really not gonna type the review over again... If I get them back, I'll let you know...

 
Another day, another column...

Super Line of the Day: Boston Red Sox hitters- Well, they scored 25 runs in one game. Scored 14 runs in the first inning. The first batter to get out was Nomar... the second time up! They had 11 straight hitters without an out. Johnny Damon singled, doubled, and tripled in the first inning. The team combined for 28 hits. But that means someone was giving those runs up

Not So Super Line of the Day- Carl Pavano/Michael Tejera, P's, Marlins- Not that I'm saying what any of the Marlins pitchers did should be considered a good performance, but neither of these guys got a guy out... in the first inning! They combined to give up 10 H, 11 ER, and 1 BB in 0 IP... the first pitcher to get someone out in the game was the third pitcher, Allen Levrault!

Link of the Day:
  • Villagers baffled by gnome attack

  • They should just be happy that it was an attack by garden gnomes and not an attack from the underpants gnomes...

    Damian Rolls Watch- 1-5 with a single yesterday, average down to .268

    One other thing of note is Kevin Olsen, Marlins pitcher... fourth pitcher in the game, got hit hard in the back of the head by a Todd Walker line drive up the middle... you just hope the guy isn't seriously hurt for life...

    That's all I got for now... and if you didn't get the one-liner joke after the link of the day... think South Park...

    Super Line of the Day: Brad Wilkerson, OF, Expos- 4-4, 1 HR, 4 RBI's. What's so special? He hit for the cycle... just beats out Nomar (5-5) and Kerry Wood (hit second HR of the year, plus good pitching performance) because hitting for the cycle is very rare.

    Not So Super Line of the Day: Al Leiter, SP, Mets- 5 2/3 IP, 8 R (7 ER), 8 H, 5 BB, 4 K in 8-4 loss to Florida... He has not been good all year, and his K/BB ratio is disgusting. Just beat out anyone who pitched in the Tampa Bay-Yankees game, especially Jeff Weaver... those are some bad lines.

    Link of the Day:
  • After four divorces, man prefers blow-up doll

  • You know, the dude might be on to something here...

    Juan Gone rejects deal: And I actually thought the dude had changed... Omar Minaya (Expos GM) going down to talk to him, but don't expect it to change his decision...

    Also, check out The Baron's Rants. He should throw up a new one at some point in the day, but you can read and enjoy the old ones if you go there before he puts up the new one.

    Other than that, there's nothing much going on. Look for the NBA Draft Preview/Rant tomorrow and until then, try to stay cool (It is way too hot now... but I guess its better than rain...)

    So right after I put the last post on, I go downstairs and flip on the TV... and I come upon the show that is going to sweep the nation. 100 mexicanos dijieron. And I mean it. I love this show. It's on Univision (Channel 17 up in my area) at 7 and 7:30 PM. It's the mexican version of Family Feud, only better. Its so entertaining figuring out the questions, plus how fast they talk, and the host is hilarious, or at least seems to be to the contestants who understand him (Like I actually understand any of the jokes, I just laugh cause he's laughing). If you've never watched this show, you're missing something special...

     
    I figured I'd start something that would go on this site daily, so I've come up with "Super Line of the Day" and "Not So Super Line of the Day" for last nights sporting events. Also throwing in some link(s) of the day...

    Super Line of the Day: Damian Rolls, Tampa Bay- 3-3, 2 HR's, 4 RBI's in 4-2 win over Yankees. He had all his team's RBI's. He hit as many homeruns in this game as he had in his career. He his the two homeruns in consecutive plate appearances off Roger Clemens. Only other two ever to do that are Robin Yount and Carlton Fisk. Guess this guy is gonna be a star. Well, I'll keep you posted on how he's doing cause I got my watch out on him.

    Not So Super Line of the Day: Brad Lidge, RP, Houston- Comes in with a 2-1 lead... then 2/3 IP, 5 ER, 2 H, 3 BB, 1 K... and the kicker for me... he's on my fantasy team... that means a lovely 67.50 ERA and 7.50 WHIP to start the week. I'm overjoyed.

    Link of the Day:
  • Swiss Police spend an hour catching a toy snake

  • You know, I guess if your a neutral country, you gotta let your violent side out somehow....

    And now to the short rants, which focus on baseball trades...

    Rumored deal of Jeff Weaver(NYY) for Brian Giles(PIT)- An outfield of Willaims/Giles/Matsui/Mondesi with one DHing... Giles in the middle of that lineup... If this deal happens, the baseball season no longer matters. The Yankees are champs, that's it, it's over, its done...

    Juan Gonzalez to the Expos- According to Peter Gammons, Juan Gonzalez has been traded to the Expos. Now, Juan has to agree to drop his no trade clause, which I think he will. The terms of the deal have not been released yet, but this becomes very important in a couple of senses...

    1) The value of the Expos rises if they are sold before the season ends and can be moved to their new loaction for next season.
    2) They become a very formidable team. Now, Juan has to play the field every day, but when Vlad Guerrero gets healthy, their lineup could be Wilkerson/Vidro/Guerrero/Gonzalez/Cabrera... that's a very very good lineup. Then to go with Livan Hernandez, Vazquez, Day, and this new kid Vargas, they could be a team to be reckoned with for the wild card, and hey who knows, the division (Down with the Braves!)

    It's too hot in the room I'm typing in to look for other interesting stories and stuff that doesn't have to do with sports... I'll attempt to do updates in the morning, but sometimes its not possible, so for now, goodbye.

    Final post of the day, I think. Just wanted to point out that I added my e-mail address and 3 links to the sidebar. Eventually, I'll probably add a bunch and seperate them into catergories and all that good stuff (and make it look a lot better), but I'm too lazy right now. Anyway, 3 links are...

    Baseball-reference.com- Has every baseball stat you could ask for. Amazing site, great for settling an argument.

    The Baron's Homepage- Buddy from the RP world. He has one of the funniest sites around, the weekly rant is hilarious. Roam around the page a little, and even if you don't get any of the inside jokes (I get about 20% of them), its still funny.

    Paulforpres's Site- A friend of mine, has interesting quizzes on it. He has a tendency not to update it, but nobody's perfect...

    Counter also added... whee...

     
    A few other things that I forgot to mention...

    Hornets hire that St. Bonnies coach: You know, the one that got fired, for, you know, only, letting his team quit! How does he get another job? That's just insane! But then again, the Hornets did hire Tim Floyd, who well, might not have won a game in Chicago and the Bonnies coach might fit in, cause most of the time it doesn't seem like NBA players are playing on the court...

    Jay Williams: It's just sad... Bobby Hurley, Grant Hill, Jay Williams... guys seem like they could have good careers and they get injured. Common thread: All dukies...

     
    I'm not gonna waste anytime getting into my ranting, so let's begin...

    Doggy Fizzle Televizzle: It was interesting and funny. Wasn't afraid to make fun of people. I'd say its a good show to watch for a laugh. Sunday nights, 10 PM on MTV. (Also, take a look at PTI (5:30 ESPN) and Baseball Tonight (10 PM and midnight on ESPN or ESPN2, very very good shows)

    Now on to the sports stuff...

    Lewis vs. Klitschko: In my opinion, Lewis got very lucky. I think Klitschko would have kept coming at him and won by decision. But that cut was nasty. If you saw the fight, it was insanely deep. Makes me realize why I'll never be a cut guy...

    Mets vs. Yankees: Benitez walked the same amount of guys in one inning then David Wells has all year. That's all I have to say about that... They really need to trade him and Alomar right away (Mets, Rangers, Jets, Nets, and Duke basketball fan... so I'll get into what the Mets and Rangers should do in longer form at some point... Duke and Jets, there is nothing much to say... The Nets I'll touch on Thursday when I look at the draft...)

    Moneyball: A must read for anyone with any type of interst in baseball. Its a fascinating way to look at scouting, plus the dynamic of Billy Beane makes how the A's go about getting players almost insane, but so logical at the same time. Whenever I watch a game, I think about it so differently, its scary.

    Hewitt goes down in Wimbledon: I'm happy about it, I don't like the guy. He's too much of a whiner.

    Well, I guess that's all I got for now. Not too funny, but I'm working on it... I'll eventually get into longer rants too (like favorite players in all sports... give you an idea where I'm coming from) and hopefully get funnier. I'll also try to update every day, if possible...
