Baseball, how sweet it is!!!

PLAY BALL!! Pitchers and Catcher reported to spring training last week! On a side note. I wonder which position the wet-behind-the-ears kid takes, pitcher or catcher? Or maybe he just blocks punts! Back to the game of baseball! By far the greatest sport ever created!! I think there was someone or something supernatural inspiring the creator of this game. Our National Pastime! What in the world does that mean?! I just love this game! From the smell of leather glove, the crack of the bat (I'm old school so that would be a wooden bat), the smell of the dirt and grass! I love walking through the tunnel in the stadium with all the concrete and steel around you. Everything is gray in color then you come to the end of the tunnel and WHAMO! Beautiful green and brown colors! How green the grass looks in the lights at a night game! I get a thrill everytime I see that. Have you ever thought about this game. The length between bases? How that if 1st base was 1 foot closer to home plate a batter could out run a routine ground ball? If the base was 1 foot farther away, the batter would probably not beable to beat out any ground balls. The distance from 1st to 2nd is 90 ft. If it was any closer, catchers wouldn't throw out near as many runners! It would be to easy for the runner. If they were a foot longer, there wouldn't be any chance of stealing a base! Isn't this game grand!!

Man, I love this game, and it really steams me that some players took it upon themselves to "bulk" up with steroids. And I even fell for the old "No, it's the creatine and steaks I eat that help me bulk up". Pluuuueeeease!! Give me a break!! When 2nd baseman and shortstops start looking like linebackers and hitting home runs with the greatest of ease!! Something is wrong. I guess I am what they call a baseball purists! Pete Rose, the sleaze that he is. never hurt this game like these so called super stars have! And what is with Barry Bonds!! Why does he get a free pass! He doesn't get called to Washington to go through the senate hearings!! What does he have something on the senators!! Get rid of the DH too! Make the pitchers hit! Just as the National league! It gives a total different feel to the game! Anyways, The best sport in the world is about to begin!! PLAY BALL!!!

I prefer badmiton. Have you ever considered the size of the birdie in relation to the racket. If the birdie was any smaller, it would be harder to hit, but easier because of its relation in size to the racket. Or how about the size of the holes in the racket. What if they were bigger, it would make the game so much more dificult harder to play. I do think they should lower the net, then I could play by myself. I would always win. Eh Eh Eh Eh! Running back and forth, Oh what fun it would be. OF course if I get tired of that i could take up Curling. Pppppppplllllllllaaaaaaayyyyyyyy Bbbbbbbbbbbbiiiiiiirrrrrrrrddddiiiieeee!!!!

Roger Clemens can really hit...Mike Piazza, but anywho, I'm ready for the pinstripes to clean up this year. They're due.

Let me ask you a question, Ssssteve. What do you think of people who say "you can't keep Bonds outta the HOF based on speculation of steroids. You will never be able to know how much of his stats were produced by steroids" when Pete Rose was kept out even though it can never be figgured how much his betting on baseball affected his team's performance?

Pinhead, get some sleep!!

Fmragtops, Yanks should always do good with that lineup. I am sick of the bandwagon "red sox nation"!! I think I just puked a little bit in my mouth! The Bonds issue needs more space than this but I think he should get in. Maybe they will have a corner for the b-holes in baseball, he could be in there!!

I am glad there are good sports like football and what was that sport pinhead was talking about.... badmiton!!! I actully prefer tennis to badmiton though pinhead. LOL

Glad all is going good on the business trip pinhead!

I'd rather watch the women's curling, but I hope you fans have an enjoyable baseball season!

I like sports. But baseball's not an actual sport any more than chess is a sport. I'm with Jimmy. I'll take women's curling over baseball.

Have you been to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown? I have and I like baseball. I'm not nuts over any sports, but I like it.

Ssssteve,
Could you please explain to me how, in your right mind you could say Barry Bonds belongs in the HOF?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!
The HOF is for "HALL OF FAMERS"!!!!
You get into Cooperstown by being one of the greats in baseball. By doing great things in baseball. By being a player who accomplished greatness with your GOD given talent!!! Not by something that the boy's at Balco brewed up for you. Please tell me you typed that in a hurry because you heard Pinhead coming out to the warehouse and you had to finish your comments.
I still love you even though you ARE mistaken. :)

Linda, Hey just because your mad at Wyatt doesn't mean you can quit coming by here. Long time no hear!!

JC, Your a moron! Go to www.baseball-almanac.com and check out his stats. He wasn't on the juice his whole career! Stats don't lie. Hey I dislike him as much as you do, but he deserves to be there!! And for the other comments... BITE ME!! You are going down at PGA West!!

Linda, I was thinking if you get your own blog site then you can post the prime rib any time you want and nice juicy steak.

baseball is the greatest game ever invented. Period. The symetry, the rules, the illogical logic of it all. The sights the sounds, the smells of baseball. It is the same from your local little league to the majors.

NC, you are too now Thanks!!

Linda and Lori, maybe you two could start e-mailing each other!! Ha ha Oh wait, never mind I need the hits!!

GN, YUCK!

HB, No doubt about it!! Going to the World baseball classic!! Looks like fun!!

Lori--I just don't feel motivated to do it at the present time, but yes, there would be prime rib! There are so many blogs and I already feel like I'm on the computer too much!

Ssssteve--I wanted to clarify the comment I made about being into men in a major way! I'm not sure that sounds like I meant it! I just meant I was hetro and pics of pretty girls are not that interesting to me. Whereas guys are! You have to be careful what you type because it can be read to mean different things! I wouldn't want to give you the wrong impression!

Linda I understand what you meant on your comment about being into men in a major way. Men dont get it sometimes though and they think that we should just be happy looking at pics of pretty girls right along with them. I would rather look at pictures of good looking men any day as well since I am not into girls. That is just not my cup of tea. Just dont let these guys get to you.

You gotta know your audience. If Sssteve wants this to be a "Chics blog" where women swoon over some hot piece of man meat and bleate on incessently about their favorite recipes, then he should go ahead and do it.

If not, he should keep away from the man meat pics.

Just go right on ahead and put up those man meat pics, but be warned. I'll delink your blog when you do.

This is funny! Insecurity on display! And a blog bully! What are you, twelve? I hope you know there's a real world outside your front door!

Oh yeah, baseball! He steps up to the plate, the pitch is thrown, he swings, it connects! Up, up in the air,over the fence----it's a homerun!

Yo, Val let me get this straight. You're calling me a blog bully?! Where have I bullied anyone?! And which one of these posts shows that I am 12 years old?! Trust me you Ding Dong!! I know there is a real world out there, I'm in it everyday!!! And I respect those that go into it more than I do!! Guys like Captb and his Marines!! I trust you are talking about the "kid" that I was posting about earlier.
