Goat Riders of the Apocalypse
A Hundred Next Years
Just Read 'em!
Before I begin this, I have had a reader request Mark Prior's calf size. If anyone knows how big Prior's calves are, could you shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)?
With only three days left before all-star voting is closed, I decided to wrap up my all-star voting series with a non-stats edition. I didn't look at any stats before voting, I just picked my favorite players, or guys who I know are having outstanding years. As a result, I chose not to vote for a few positions.
|Position||American League||National League|
|First Base||NO VOTE||Derrek Lee, CHC|
|Second Base||Brian Roberts, BAL||Luis Castillo, FLA|
|Third Base||Alex Rodriguez, NYY||Aramis Ramirez, CHI|
|Shortstop||Miguel Tejada, BAL||Cezar Izturis, LAD|
|Catcher||Ivan Rodriguez, DET||Michael Barrett, CHI|
|Outfielder||Ichiro!, SEA||Juan Pierre, FLA|
|Outfielder||Vladimir Guerrero, ANA||Miguel Cabrera, FLA|
|Outfielder||NO VOTE||Jeromy Burnitz, CHI|
|Designated Hitter||NO VOTE||Our pitchers hit|
You too can vote for the All-Star starting lineups. I just ask that you keep my man D-Lee in mind.
It appears that I have a weakness for speedy guys on the Marlins. I guess that 2003 NLCS has scarred me for life.
Chicago Cubs Media Guide Trivia Nugget of the Day:
Page 253-254: The Cubs have reached the World Series 10 times. They have played the Tigers 4 times (1907, 1908, 1935, and 1945).
