My Morning in ExileThings I wrote while wondering why Greg Maddux never won a Nobel Peace Prize:
And if not Maddux, how about Picard? You gonna tell me that the guy who almost single-handedly put an end to the Klingon civil war isn't worthy? Politics, man. Freakin' politics.

Craig, when you start saying things that agree with Ian O’Conner, I begin to worry. The Yankees depth will more than compensate for Molina’s .212, and somehow he isn’t that bad to hit something unexpected once in a while. Jorge should be happy that George signs and gives money to players who are a little long-in-the-tooth. Watch what Jeter gets next year, the year when Jorge will do DH most of the time.

Hello, what about John Sheridan? He ended the Shadow War! Yes, there was the whole military coup thing that overthrew President Clark, but Clark was asking for it.

Do Dodger panties come in a variety of styles? Personally I’d go with the boxer briefs, though a nice set of boxer could work as well.
Would Mrs. Shyster like the thong version? Would it make a difference if you were the one to wear them?

One of the great things about baseball is that there is no clock and virtually unlimited extra innings if needed. There is nothing final until the game is over.

Do other teams have panties as well? Could I order some Cubs panties?
That comment really did brighten my day. I’m still smiling.

I’m sorry Craig didn’t win the Nobel peace prize for the blog. Howeverm he did win the First Annual Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence this summer.
Scatterbrain - Sometimes a team is down to its last strike/out and doesn’t know it - a double play, even a triple play (Mets) could result on the next pitch.

I hear you Bob, but in baseball you don’t know what is final until after the fact. So it’s misleading to say so before the fact.
Really I’m just tired of broadcasters trying to add drama when there’s already plenty.

Re TNT Billboards and Martin?? as the face of the Dodgers: Ethier would have been a better choice than Russell IMO but who is the “face” of the Dodgers other than the “evil” Manny?

You can’t have Cub panties, because Milton Bradley is still wearing them.
In other news, if Hendry manages to unload Bradley on the Rays, I will take back most of the bad things I’ve said about him.
Posted 10/09 at 01:56 PM
Yeah, I’d have gone with Ethier or Kemp before Martin, who’s been an All-Star, but isn’t necessarily more well known than those guys. I’m actually surprised it wasn’t Joe Torre. Isn’t he the guy in the Dodger version of the “This is Beyond Baseball” campaign?
Posted 10/09 at 02:26 PM
what!? He really did win the Nobel Peace Prize? Here I thought it was just an elaborate hoax, but apparently it is so elaborate that everyone is running with it.
next he’ll win the Nobel Prize for Economics too…

Will Allyssa Milano be modelling the Dodger panties?

Matt Holiday makes an error, his pitchers don’t pick him up, and in the off season he signs for X years at 100+ million dollars.
Steve Bartman makes an error, his pitchers can’t pick him up, and he has to move to Nepal.

“Will Allyssa Milano be modelling the Dodger panties?”
1000 thanks for the visual.
Posted 10/09 at 03:37 PM
What does the visual of Craig in Dodgers panties do for you?
Posted 10/09 at 03:44 PM
Over the pants, Moose. Over the pants.
Posted 10/09 at 04:05 PM
The Dodgers panties thread was priceless! I’ll probably laugh all weekend.
But see, anybody who knows anything at all about Craig knows that he only wears Braves panties.

for the sake of correctness, ‘dottering’ should be ‘doddering,’ craig…
