Spring training is finally here! Yes! Baseball is back!!
The games have arrived and now there will be more action before! This will be a season filled with excitement and surprise.
Will the Phillies repeat? Will the Yankees win it all? Will the Mets suffer another collapse? You never know in the game of baseball. One thing I do know though is that the Yankees played a great game today. Our pitching was phenomenal and A-Rod crushed the ball into the stands.
Today the Rays unfortunately got shut out by the Reds 7-0 but they still played hard and are destined to have another spectacular season. Especially since my man Longoria is on the squad.
Along with the games beginning I would like to make two announcements.
1. I will be holding a mock draft with MLBloggers on either March 14th or 15th at about 7:00. So far bloggers such as cube, cheeky, and King of Cali have signed up and there are only 8 spots remaining. Let me know if you want to join in on the action.
2. I would like to say that my 100th comment has been left and it was from… me! So, I’m going to give a shout out to the person who left me my 101st comment…
The King of Cali!

I would like to try your fantasy draft. What day and time are you planning on doing it?

Long live baseball!
Imagine, you’re 31, and you are gifted at the game of baseball. So gifted you are playing in the big leagues and you’re so good you want 15 million dollars, a year for 3 years to play on a team. You feel you are such a good player with all of your gold gloves, any team would want you on their squad. Once you file for something called free agency you think that everything you want is in the bag. Now, after waiting for someone to sign you for 4 months, you realize there is one tiny thing in the way of your goal. Something called the… um… economic depression, was it?
I guess you forgot about that.
Now you are wondering, what do I do? My two favorite teams don’t want you.
Your money’s going down the drain.
You’re even suffering from panic attacks.
So, what is the solution to all your problems?
All I have to say is, peace out O-Dawg, The Manoman
