Hot damn.

Watch out for the Cards.

The only thing more boring than baseball is basketball. Thank God at least one of them is almost over.

Oh, I forgot about Bowling.

The 4 B's. Bowling, Basketball, Baseball, and...

Havn't paid attention Peter. Did my Angels pick up a (read 4!) pitcher? Need to check with Flint on this stuff. He's the pro.

baseball more boring than golf? naahhhh

As Samuel Johnson said about London, he who is tired of baseball is tired of life.

Is the stadium where the Cards play nicknamed The House Of Cards?

-- Little Nipper (, March 27, 2002.


It's Busch Stadium, and teams that go in there expecting to do well will depart sadder Budweiser.

This is the season I really envy Anita, who can practically walk to Ranger games. I don't even get to see them unless they happen to be on the weekly Yankee Game Of National Interest. At least they're in the American league! Used to be, National League teams could never be part of the Yankee Game Of National Interest.

And sadly, the Rangers don't look particularly promising this year either. Chan Ho Park has never been even as good as mediocre outside Dodger Stadium, and the rest of the staff looks like a cast of clowns. Rocker is the closer? Sigh.

So once again, but even moreso by their past records, the Rangers should set alltime records for most runs scored and most runs allowed, with the latter outnumbering the former. And the team is hard to follow from here. Wherever you happen to go in this wonderful country, you can follow the local team and the Yankees (because the media consider the Yankees the local team), but that's all. The local team where I am is the Braves, and they never play the Rangers.

Still, the opening of the baseball season is like the sun rising after a long night. The Stupid Season (basketball and little else) seems to last forever. I'll have to dust off my TV and see if it still works...

Baseball sucks.

Cubs season again. Wait till next year.

Flint, I believe the Ranger’s will get to the American League Championship series against…… guessed it……DA BUMS!!


The Braves chuckers are one season away from Medicare and they will be lucky to make the playoffs. The Cards should be very competitive but the Snakes are the class of the NL.

World Series this year….same deal as last year.

"chuckers" is a tipoff. U would know bout my Angels' chuckers chances. And, relax, your identity is safe w/ me!

Where's that Deano asshole? He's living proof that all baseball players are fags.

Angels chances this year………same deal as last year.

As if the Angel’s aren’t bad enough ‘on’ the field, one of their ex- legends got his ass whipped by his wife two days ago. Currently a Cleveland Indian, Chuck Finley is back in Southern California for a season opening series against his old team. While returning to his Newport Beach Estate with his wife Tawny, Finley was repeatedly assaulted with her high heels while driving and the fracas continued when they got home. According to news reports, a third party called 911 and Tawny spent two days in the Orange County Jail and has been charged with spousal abuse. Tawny is a former ‘jock’ groupie with prior ‘anger management’ issues and run-ins with the law. She is due in court soon for ‘keying-up’ a Suburban over a parking spot dispute. A few months of incarceration with the bull dykes might calm her down a little.

Chucky will be unmercifully ragged by all of baseball.

The Angels should be unmercifully ragged by all of baseball.

Ya think Barry Bonds is out to ‘prove’ something this year? Like, maybe being the greatest baseball player of all time?

More proof that baseball fans are fags. "Send mo money" spends his days drooling over the details of Chuck Finley's love life. He's really jealous that Tawny gets to polish Chuck's doorknob, not him.

As any baseball fan will tell you, something incredible has just occurred. The Cards beat the Brewers three times in three days, by identical 6-5 scores! Stop and consider that happening by chance.
Very same two teams.
Very same ballpark.
Very same score.

Now happening twice in a row, OK it could be dismissed as one of those wacky weird coincidences which happen, though rarely. But three times in a row? I don't think so. I think we are talking about something other-worldly.

It's like an other-worldly message was trying to get through. But what message? Other-worldly messages are hard to figure out. Put your money on the Cards, boys, is my best guess.

-- Peter Errington (, April 12, 2002.

Mariners and Diamonbacks in the World Series. If 911 had not put a screaching halt to normal life, the M's would have knocked out the Yanks and played against Randy in the world series last year.

Alex who???? Money doesn't buy everything, especially fan support.
