Let him have his day. After this year he will be back back back back back back back back GONE!
Do you know that or are you just thread-joshing? The old boy doesn't bother me, at least in the HRD. Game calling is another story, but he only does a rare one.

NESN said Mookie was asked if he was interested in this shindig and he said no. Anybody else hear that?

On the radio they said the same thing. Mookie was Player of the Game, and they asked him about it, He said that while he hits home runs, he's not a home run hitter, and (paraphrasing) rejected the invitation out of hand because he didn't want to mess up his swing.

Berman is supposedly "retiring" put out to pasture. Unfortunately that pasture is here on Maui. The whole schtick just gets old after about 15 minutes and then when he loses his voice it just becomes even worse. I will just have to "self medicate" and try to appreciate one last time until they hand the reins over to Harold Reynolds next year.

Berman was on local radio here in SD the other day and strongly intimated that this would be his last year and that it wasn't necessarily all his decision.

Nice piece on Gwynn.

I do wonder how much Dallas Braden interacted with Gwynn to tell us that Gwynn "just got it".

What's wrong with Jessica?

She's the best thing here considering you have the presence of Berman, those uniforms, a Dj and Robinson Cano
Our fantasy league has owners throw $1 (fantasy) in the pot and we get assigned someone. I got Cano. Sigh.

Are they really asking about strategy in a competition that has one goal?

I'm not a fan, but at least she's better at what she does than Fall Out Boy is at being a band. Can't believe ESPN inflicted their shitty "Centuries" piece of garbage on their TV audience after already having had to endure it during the entire CFB season.

Do they juice these balls or are we using the regular season (still juiced) ball?
