    Quote from max.patch: “stat of the day. joey votto made his major league debut in 2007. he has played in 1,592 games. he has had 6,828 plate appearances. last night he popped out to first for the FIRST TIME.

    Quote from Trillium: “Tragic story: College student dies on class trip to Hawksbill Crag Astro, have you ever hiked to Hawksbill Crag? The picture on the article put me in mind of MacAfee Knob. ” Not yet, but I have seen pictures and will probably not be that far away as I do the Ozark Highland Trail. Believe we when I do get there am I not one for getting closer to the edge than I need to.

    We were finally having baseball weather the past few weeks , but unfortunately looks we will be rained out tonight. Shame because it was going to be Military appreciation day with University ROTC color guard, chorus (including son's girlfriend) was going to sing National Anthem, and honoring a few military individuals.

And when I'm working on the trail and you looney birds come running down the rocky trail....OMG, all I can think of is my ankles turning every 10 yards! ” Yeah, but I bet you are still pretty good on a pair of ice skates.

Walked over 26 miles a couple years ago, but I definitely was NOT sprinting at the end.

Even though he is being paid $161 Million to do what most of us dreamed of being able to do for a living, at some point you just had to feel for him. Porcello has had a roller coaster career, so maybe this will just be one of the off years.

    Quote from chief: “back in the day camden yards was a rat infested warehouse district and it was easy to be an orioles fan. these days oriole fans should be booed and camden yards is still rat infested. ” The ballpark itself was in good shape two years ago when my son and I caught the Astros in a couple of games there. I liked the statues of the Robinson's and Earl Weaver. Probably also one of Eddie Muarry.
