Thanks for the Gonzalez tip. Put me in the money last night. Where do I send your cheque?

Love the Seinfeld reference in the first paragraph. If I'm not mistaken, that's the episode I appear as the intern.

I definitely now won't do with Norris what I did with Corbin last year in Scoresheet. Great debut article Craig. Imagine if there was a de-butt article? That would be about taking off your butt.

This series keeps getting better. The bar was just raised. Keep doing them after the deadline.

You are gifted, talented and write concisely and to the point without droning on and on. Here are some other fun baseball skills to try that many of us couldn't do: 1. Run as fast as you can then slide into the grass without spraining something or winding yourself from the running. That's just the grass, not even the dirt! 2. Have someone drop a ball from a four story building. Try to catch it on a sunny day. A cloudy day. In a drizzle. In the dusk. 3. Place two friends twenty feet apart. Run from one to the other five times. This is called a rundown and it's way harder than it looks. 4. Bunt. Chances are, your bunt is in the sink. Baseball is really, really hard.

Eleven cents a day, eleven or so pieces to read today. What does that work out to per article? Make sure it goes directly on your electric bill Kevin.

I thought the Harrison Beastie Boy lyric was a comment on the cleaning skills of Saved by the Bell's Screech. What is Dustin Diamond's ceiling? Is it a poor man's Pauly Shore?

I really enjoyed this, as well as the Game of the Week story. It sounds daunting, but if something like this was done for every post-season game and put together with maybe 10 or 20 regular season games, it'd make an amazing recap of the 2012 season. It's great to buy the Annual every year, but I'd buy a recap like this in a heartbeat.

I suppose it does. I think it was more focused on putting the ball where you want it, rather than making the ball do what you want.

When I was a kid, a coach I had defined control as being able to hit a garbage can from the mound, and command as hitting a Coke can. We actually had a drill with a strike zone sized garbage can on legs, and a Coke can on a tee.

"Dip into its golden loins" has got to be the middle line of a haiku.

I'm excited to see if the Royals start him on three days rest once or twice to see if they can get him another win. Maybe see if they could get him a couple saves too. Maybe they could use him out of the pen on days he doesn't start. Maybe he could vulture a couple.

I can\'t see the screen through the tears of joy streaming down my face. I\'ll be screaming \"Puck Prospectus\" from section 215 of Rexall Place tonight. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

When\'s the other book going to be ready? If I order them together, I get free shipping. Free shipping! Who is Keith Olbermann? Do you mean Ken Oberkfell?
