Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

1. Seattle -- When people from the State of Washington say they are from Washington... Everybody assumes that they are from Washington DC and people from Seattle, Spokane and everywhere in between have just learned to roll with it and have stopped trying to correct it. There was a time when Seattle was known as collection of lumberjacks...

The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle
And the hills the greenest green, in Seattle
Like a beautiful child, growing up, free an' wild
Full of hopes an' full of fears, full of laughter, full of tears
Full of dreams to last the years, in Seattle . . . in Seattle

Have there been recent concerns regarding seismic activity?

My family moved away from Warshington the summer before St. Helens, but i was a wee tyke at the time, and don't remember very much...

That reads like the background to one of Ted Bundy's first murders.

So her real name was Bridget. I didn't remember that her name on the show was Candy until I looked at it just now. But I always identified with that red hair.

As you wish...

After much deliberation:

"Welcome to the pit of despair!"

(Runner up being "I don't mean to pry, but you don't by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?" which leads into the sword fight and relevant handedness as the original referent)

Most of these are Florimon. Colabello looks like the outlier and I don't know the two normal guys.

Yeah, the lyrics sort of struck me that way, and by the fact you gave your age away a few days ago, I am sure you are as striking as the day you were twenty.:)

I thought May's injury was minor and he was expected to be back before the futures game. What happened?

Guess its either Kris Johnson or Logan Darnell replacing Nolasco if he has to go on the DL. So excited....
