2nd worst day of my life…..

Austin Kearns has been traded to the Yankees.  The only thing in my life that has sucked more is when the Reds traded him for Bill Bray, Royce Clayton, and Gary Majewski.  I am sure the Indians got the Yankees’ top 4 prospects in return but that doesn’t soften the blow.

My idol, my hero, and my favorite player now dons pinstripes.  I don’t know what to do…..

Strasburg hurt…..already

Stephen Strasburg has already inched his way closer to becoming Mark Prior part II, as he was scratched from tonight’s game.  The Nats manager says it was precautionary, and the MRI revealed no structural damage but some inflammation.  If the Nationals are smart, they shut him down for a little while with a DL stint, and then hire Dusty Baker to be their manager next season.

Dark day for baseball fans

"That's the guy over there who hooks me up with my shit. Who do you go through?"

With Manny now getting busted, 2 of the best hitters of our generation, hell, of all time, are dirty.  Fertility drug my ass.  I swear if Austin Kearns or Albert Pujols test positive I will give up on baseball forever.

Who will draft Stephen Strasburg?

Strasburg will without a doubt be the hottest commodity to ever come out of college baseball.  There have been some rumblings that the Nationals, who have the first pick in this year’s draft, won’t be able to afford the $50 million price tag Boras is going to put on the young pitcher.  There have also been some articles saying that some teams are willing to part with all of their draft picks to be able to have that top pick so they can take Strasburg.  Let me go ahead and kill that rumor, because you aren’t allowed to trade draft picks according to MLB rules.

All of this blabbering was to get to this article, in which former Nationals GM lets everyone know if the Nats will take Strasburg or not.

Zack Greinke

This is a good story for all you baseball fans out there.  The writer of this article rants about how Kansas City Royals pitcher, Zack Greinke should be getting more  heroic praise than the former coke head, Josh Hamilton.  So far in this young season, Greinke hasn’t given up a run while dominating hitters with his high 90’s gas and slow looping curve that he has thrown as slow as 50 mph.

What he writes about in this story is similar to what Dontrelle Willis is going through.  Hopefully he returns to fulfill his abilities the way Greinke has.

The Marlins Secret

We all know that my Marlins are off to the best start in baseball, but do we know why?  Other than them having the best young pitching staff in baseball, arguably the best player in baseball, and a bunch of no name studs; there is another reason.  So what if chewing tobacco causes throat and oral cancer; it also helps you win baseball games, and in the long run, that’s what really counts right?  Here is the article.

Washington Natinals

Someone needs to do a “This is Why You Suck” song for this sorry franchise.  Not only have they just won 2 games on the season, but their uniforms a couple days ago had Nationals spelled wrong.  It reminds me of when Joe Carter’s jersey had Torotno instead of Toronto on it.
