Life continues past the months of June, July, and August and so must the counselors of Day Camp.

Baseball '05

Looks like the Athletics made a poor decision. Gator - you're letting us all down.


An excerpt:

"Rookie Dan Meyer and Japanese import Keiichi Yabu, two of the four top candidates for the two openings in Oakland's starting rotation, were less than stellar in their Cactus League debuts Friday, and both had similar theories on their struggles.

Meyer, who got the start against the visiting Brewers, made quick work of the first two batters he faced but gave up three runs with two outs. He also gave up three runs with two out in the second inning and finished with an unsightly [ed. - bold and italics my own] line of seven runs on six hits and a walk."

And this guy is supposedly fit to be our Day Camp Big Cheese? Puuuhhhllleeeezzzee - he can't even get a win against the BREWERS, a drunken team named after a drunken occupation from a drunken town. Bob Russell, we need to have a little talk.

Alright, wait a minute.... so the new guy points out that Dan Meyer is failing us...and yet I am the one to be censored. Oh, life is just so unfair for the nice guys.

Gator.... I KNEW the world was going to expect too much from you the reigning paperclip chain champion. sigh... your job never ends.
Maybe one day the MLB will understand the the speed that comes with clipping paperclips does not correlate with ERA.

chilly -

i would venture to say it ain't the mlb's fault - lookin' at the oakland athletics, who decided it would be a good thing to trade away 2/3 of the best rotation in baseball, i'm gonna' say the burden lies entirely on their shoulders. Only they would think to replace Mark Mulder and Tim Hudson w/ a math teacher.

Some dude asked me this weekend if I played for the A's. I'm pretty sure he was joking, but I wasn't laughing. I've been chasing Dan Meyer's Google PageRank since his days on the Brewers' farm team. I'm currently listed behind a cruddy pitcher, a Wisconsin assemblyman, and a thoracic surgeon. Creeping insecurities are creeping a little closer.
