Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it paramecium?


Yeah I know... It's leaves you Charleston West Virginia what the original intent of the Frank Robinson was.

Ha Ha... Good one!!!

You had to "Raid" the back sections of your mind for that one. No worries... It didn't "repel" anyone.


Yes, in"deet" i did... didn't know i had back sections, so it was worth the effort. Need a bit of a cleaning, though, so for the moment, i'll just throw down a roach motel, and trust to the spiders to keep the rest of the bugs out.

Anyway, game's on!

Intent, you say? Here is an interesting study that should have bearing on tonight's game against the Tigers:

Don't Stop Believing ... was the defacto 'theme song' of the 2005 White Sox. In fact, Journey came and sang at their victory parade/rally.

And during the 7th inning stretch ... I think it's the 7th inning, maybe they do it another inning ... the crowd at AT&T Park sings 'Lights.'


That ruined a perfectly good song too I might add.

I think they put all star ballots together in October

I'd say something about all star game being a complete joke, especially this early in April....

Something like that. Derek Jeter will probably be the starting SS on the 2015 AL team.

Stupid question for you Michigan, but what part of Michigan are you from? My wife's family is from all over the state so I'm up there quite often.

Today's reason why Cory Provos needs to be fired; in reference to Brian Dozier's .356 OBP, and I quote, "that's phenomenal for a leadoff hitter".

I have no words.

Colabello is becoming my favorite player but they may need to move him to DH for that to Sustain.

Colabello's error cost the team an extra run, but I guess we can forgive him considering he's an RBI machine.
