Saturday, March 26, 2005

I don't have a clue what I'm doing up right now... or why I'm on a computer but I am. So, if you're reading this, I want to encourage you to head over to 'Only Baseball Matters.' The fine proprietor of that site, John Pericone has an excellent rant up about sports writers who are both beholden to their subjects, and a little too altruistic. Beware, its long... but its good.

I also was watching the Orioles Nationals game this afternoon. Here's hoping the Orioles don't get any pitching:

1. Dave Brian Roberts
2. Melvin Mora
3. Miguel Tejada
4. Sammy Sosa
5. Rafael Palmeiro
6. Javy Lopez

Well, they're in the AL East, so I don't really care what they do. More power to 'em if they get some arms to play with.

Nice lookin' lineup though. Too bad it doesn't matter up against the Beantowners and the Bronx.

But hey, I bet the Brewers wish they could get to third place sometime in the next couple of decades. Without Bud, things are looking up, I'm sure.

Dave Roberts plays for San Diego.

Brian Roberts is NO Dave Roberts.

Oops, you are absolutely correct. I even looked that up before I posted because I knew it wasn't Dave... That was stupid of me.

Brian Roberts: 2004 stats
641 AB
159 Games
107 Runs
175 Hits
50 Doubles
2 Triples
4 Dongs
241 Total Bases
53 RBI
71 Walks
95 Strikeouts
29 Steals
12 Caught Stealing
.273 Avg
.344 OBP
.376 SLG
.720 OPS

Leadoff hitter. Good enough for the O's to get rid of Jerry Hairston Jr.
