My mac’s broke

And so is Kerry Wood. This article says he visited a hand specialist. Could it possibly be the world’s greatest hand model, J.P. Prewitt? They are a different breed, you know.

(lol, David Duchovny)

The All-Realistic NL Team of 2008

July 15, 2008

So we decided to make the best starters, and put the best backup players behind them. So basically, the best realistic team of 2008. For the backup and utility players, they have to be actual backups or platooners, like Augie Ojeda, or Ruben Gotay for example. No video game rosters here.

My lineup will consist of:

2 Catchers
1 First Baseman
1 First Baseman/Third Baseman
1 Second Baseman
1 Second Baseman/Shortstop
1 Third Baseman
1 Shortstops
4 Outfielders
1 Utility Player
12 pitchers, 7 RP, 5 SP

Catcher: Brian McCann – Atlanta Braves

I made a mistake when I chose Russell Martin based on him dating Alyssa Milano on one of my older articles. Brian McCann is having the better season indeed.

Cubs, Brewers both blow first game of the season

April 1, 2008

Eric Gagne and Kerry Wood were productive as usual in their first game of the season.

Not.

The Chicago Cubs-Milwaukee Brewers game yesterday was a thing of beauty, as Kerry Wood and Eric Gagne were their usual selves, shades of their former selves, by both blowing the game. After a 0-0 tie through the whole game in a heated Carlos Zambrano-Ben Sheets matchup, Kerry Wood got things started in the 9th by hitting Rickie Weeks, walked Prince Fielder, gave up an RBI single to Ryan Braun and gave up a two-run double to Corey Hart, giving the Brewers a 3-0 lead.

Eric Gagne imploded in similar fashion for the Brewers, giving up a single to Derrek Lee, walking Aramis Ramirez, and then getting Fukudowned by giving up a Fuks-K bomb to deep right center for the tie.

The Brewers won in the 10th with a Tony Gwynn Jr. sac fly, but the damage was done. The Cubs kicked off their 100th season of futility with this and the new and improved Milwaukee bullpen, the one that did not pay a little more money for Francisco Cordero, also blew a save.

Have fun this year guys!
