Well the Royals officially announced the signing of Jason Hammel today.  Nice pick up, but also a little bittersweet.

Don't you have a floundering Bruins season to worry about?  :P

The worrying is over. And I'm not drunk enough to start caring about the Red Sox.

Hah. I don't give rat's ass about baseball, but I'm happy to lord the Red Sox over fans of other loser teams.

Watching baseball is like watching grass grow...except with a baseball game in the way.

I read MLB is going to try out a new extra inning rule in the rookie league. If the games goes into extra innings each team will start their inning with a runner on 2nd.
If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken but Chuck Norris says its beef, then it's beef.
