But not just any pirate, you are the guy that finishes the job, their savior…


and then, they give you the axe

So what do you do? You move on of course… but to where?

Do you want to be in the Nation’s Capital?

or become a Cub?

Yeah, I think the answer is pretty obvious at this point which is why Matt Capps is now the closer of the guys in D.C.!

Washington Nationals own ...

(Yes, even the owl is going crazy)

Now onto my exclusive interview with the Athletics Spokes”man”: the A-Gnome!

Would you want a box of Coco Crisp?

BOSTON at Seattle, Saturday ...

“I would! How much is it?”

Sir it is 5 million dollars but in it comes with your very own Coco Crisp action figure that can play centerfield and run very fast!

“It’s a done deal!”

  7. I too am upset about the Pirates front office giving away Matt Capps. Last season was terrbile for him, but it is still no need to give up on him just like that. Our bullpen is going to be terrible this year.

  8. hey. Remember me? I just want to tell you. my dad died. I am only 14 though. He was 52. email me at
