Some Stuff

I've been enjoying the World Baseball Classic more than I thought I would. I did see the last few innings of the Netherlands - Dominican Republic game. Wow! All I can say is "wow!" What a great finish to a great game. I've been catching other games as I can. And I've been heard hooting and hollering at various times. Baseball is fun.


I've seen the new Twins commercial featuring Joey and Nathanator. Good stuff. And I can totally relate with Mrs. Mauer. I have two boys, and that's something they totally would do. In fact, they probably have. Except when I scold them, they just blame each other and then start arguing. And then one of them gets mad and storms off, and then the other one will rant about how it sucks to be him and his brother is a piece of crap, blah, blah, blah...actually the whole thing kind of wears me out. Maybe Mrs. Mauer has better control of her kids and their friends than I do.


Speaking of Joey, I'm glad to hear that he only has some inflammation in his sacroiliac joint.

And it sounds like he only needs to up his meds for the time being.

If that doesn't work, we should all take him out for Happy Hour. Some Stellas and dancing should do the trick. And we could dance to this:


My nephew has a fantasy baseball league, and invited me to join. Is it weird that I'm the only adult in the league? Oh well. We had our draft last night (a little early if you ask me, but, again, oh well).

Here's my team. What do you think?

C Geovany Soto
1B Albert Pujols
2B Chase Utley
3B Garrett Atkins
SS Derek Jeter
OF Corey Hart
OF Brad Hawpe
OF Alfonso Soriano
DH Gary Sheffield
UTIL Mike Aviles
Bench Xavier Nady
Bench Jarrod Saltalamacchia
Bench Jason Giambi

SP Dan Haren
RP Jonathan Papelbon
Bench Josh Beckett
Bench Daisuke Matsuzaka

Although, I'd like to draft a "fantasy" fantasy baseball team, if you know what I mean. It would be totally based on good looks and maybe only a little on ability. Johan would be my starting pitcher. And I'd keep Mike Aviles.

LOL. Yeah, I know! Blech. But, I needed a SS. He was the best available. I panicked...time was running out (3O second picks!)...and I picked him.
