Striving for mediocrity
Total baseball snob since 1983.
I'm coming out of my self-imposed exile to say what the fuck.


There is no way that baseball should control the roof of any ballpark. As long as there is no standard for ballpark dimentions etc, this rule makes no sense. None. I mean, if we're just getting rid of home field advantage, why don't they play all of their games in someone else's ballpark?

Kay, I'm finished. Off to not post for 3 more months.

Why even attempt objectivity? It's not like that's your JOB or anything.

Let me make it clear that I do not want to talk about the situation. I don't want to discuss it. I don't want anyone to talk to me about it. I already feel like I'm going to throw up on a pretty regular basis. I already can't sleep. So please don't. Just. Don't. I don't ask that kind of thing often, but this is different.

I just want to say, UNRELATED TO THE SITUATION, that the Dallas media has been making me angry for its personal attacks and disgusting sense of entitlement for two years, and that's only because that's how long I've been paying attention.

ghostrunner is distressed.
If it's not one thing, it's another. Your life is a pitiful wreck, and it's all you ever write about. Why don't you at least make up a happy story for once. Your friends would appreciate that.

Okay. Here's a made up story.

Omg, so, like, the Rangers are doing great! They have totally locked up the AL West by beating the Angels by ten runs! Gerald Laird is up for MVP, and Joaquin Benoit is our ace starter! Kenny Rogers discovered the elixer of life and will be young and healthy forever. Ryan Drese and Ivan Rodriguez just came over and all we had to give up was Rod Barajas and a ball of string in a three team deal! Hicks sold the Rangers and Stars to someone who gives a shit.

Happy day!

Dear Kenny Rogers,

I realize that you and Kevin Brown were friends back in the day, and I still love you, but you did not have to break your hand on the water cooler after your FIRST BAD START OF THE SEASON. This was just a really bad time for that, baby.

Get well soon.

Your fan,


ETA2: I didn't mention this, but it was Kenny's right hand, not his pitching hand.

ETA3: Why did I kick my ass to finish my WP fic on time?

I hate baseball.

In case anyone was wondering why I'm not posting here lately.

[ETA] My horoscope for the day: All stability twists in the wind for the weekend.

Ha ha. Is it too much to ask that we make it to the WS with the Nats so that he can kick our ass?

These stats are as of the beginning of the day. Nothing that happened during the White Sox game is included.

Leader in walks (38) and OBP (.458) in the major leagues? That'd be David Dellucci.

Team with the longest current win streak? Texas Rangers with 6.

Texas Rangers pitchers have given up 32 homeruns. Texas Rangers hitters have 71 homeruns.

In 393.1 innings, SS Michael Young has 2 errors. In 412.1 innings, 3B Hank Blalock has 1 error. In 411.1 innings, 1B Mark Teixeira has 0 errors.

Hank Blalock just ended a 53 game errorless streak.

But we don't have pitching, right?

Kenny Rogers has the best ERA in the AL with a 1.69 ERA. Chris Young has the 10th best with 3.22.

Most saves? Francisco Cordero with 15.

Thank you for your time.

I know I'm supposed to be impressed by Jeter running into things and falling and hurting himself, but, dude.

I'm just not, okay? I'm not.

For one thing, the one where he fell into the stands? I've seen Tex make the SAME KIND OF PLAY SEVERAL TIMES on the other side of the field. The thing is? He doesn't FALL DOWN. Because he's graceful. And young.

He just ran into the other player. NOT. THAT. SPECIAL.

I like Jeter, but HOMG, HE'S NOT THAT SPECIAL. Deal.
