Getting There...

Okay, I've managed to get halfway though the process of exporting the old site and sent it on to Pixy. Who, hopefully, can make sense of it and get this new, extra frinkadelic site going. The plan will be to make some small posts this week, and fix it up all classy next weekend.

The best laid plans...

Anyway, the FILF is at full swing. I sat down to enjoy the M's and Angels tonight,the M's get out to a nice lead, and then the Baseball Gods realized I was watching. Ben (I'm beginning to hate this entire family) Molina hits a game tying HR. The M's lose 7-5.

Augh...For those paying attention, the FILF is still at 100%

Barry Bonds passes Willie Mays for 3rd all time in HR tonight, and very few care. Rob Neyer had a nice piece on ESPN about this, but I think he misses one point: Barry Bonds is a jerk, and no one likes him.

Slate has a rundown on the baseball blogosphere. Nice to see USS Mariner get a shout out. They certainly deserve it, and not just because I think I went to Jr. High with Derek Zumsteg.

Nice link at the Slate site! Thanks!!

I'll have to re-do my blogroll and include a lot of these sites.

Bonds is a dickhead... I wonder how much attention will be paid to him as he zeroes in on Ruth late this year or early next next... sure the press will be all over it... but, will anybody care?... I doubt it.

Well, I seem to have a way to go on making my posts look as nifty as before, but I'll get there. Just a question of getting used to MT.
Hey, you mentioned the Missions.. somewhere I can't remember,but if you're a fan, check out marinerminors.blogspot.com. He focuses on the M's minor league teams.

Oh, and on bonds..check out ESPN.com's page 2 for a look at Bonds, the record, and racsism. I don't agree with most of the conclusions, but it's a must-read anyway. I'm planning on commenting on it later on.
