New Kids On The Block

No, no, no I'm not talking about that super group of talanted musicians. Although, if you check them out, they are kind of cute...

Oh yeah, where was I? That's right, new kids. The first new kid I want to introduce you to, is a new blog on the block. The guy in charge, Bryan is a Pirates fan. He also does great trades. We had one way back earlier in the year, and he wrote me yesterday to check out his new blog. Go see what kind of booty you can find in the Pirates Treasure Room. Show him and his team some love.

Also, my favorite new kid has got to be Casper Wells. This kid had gone 5 for 11 in his first three games witht the M's, including a homer, 4 RBI's, and a stolen base. I'm hoping he can keep up the hitting, and good defense in left field.

I also liked what I saw yesterday out of new starter, Charlie Furbush. The kid has a funky delivery, but has able to get through 5 innings the first time out and get the Mariners a win. I can help but giggle like a 12 year old boy eveytime I hear his last name though, Furbush(he he). He could be another piece to the puzzle of our rotation for the next years.


  1. Thanks for the link to the Pirates blogger. I feel like I am missing out on so many good blogs by not knowing they are around! I've seen NKOTB in concert by the way...3 times :-)

  2. A Pirates fan?!?!? Oh my God, they exist!!!!!!

  3. Thanks for the plug to my blog. I love free publicity. LOL! I still haven't seen another Topps Diamond Anniversary card like the Saunders I traded you earlier in the year. I wish that Topps had made all those cards like that. The team logo looks a lot nicer than the dumb design they chose. BTW...yes Pirates fans still exist.

  4. Enough with the Pirate cracks. At least until next year.
