Busy, Busy, Busy

Tuesday, March 28th, 2006

As the dozen or so of you that frequent my humble establishment here have noticed, I haven’t posted much in the last month or so. Unfortunately, real life does get in the way of baseball sometimes and I have been incredibly busy at work finishing up a project. Thankfully, it will all end […]

Site Issues

Monday, January 2nd, 2006

In trying to update to Wordpress 2.0 yesterday, I managed to completely destroy all the previous entries on my site.  Luckily, I had backed-up everything at the end of October.  Thanks to the back-up and Google’s caching of most of my recent posts, I have been able to resurrect my site.  A few posts from […]

Site Updates

Monday, December 19th, 2005

Over the last few months, those of you dropping by this site have been seeing a graphic at the top of the right sidebar. I had finally figured out a way to make this a randomly rotating pic when I got the bright idea of making rollover comments about each one and a link to […]

They are also […]

As the Cubs barrel their way to an 81-81 season, I havn’t been moved to write much about thier exploits. It seems so far a redux of last season. Days of strong pitching but no hitting followed by days of solid hitting and weaks starts or bulpen blowups. An occasinal day or […]

Old Posts

Monday, March 7th, 2005

Over the course of the next few days, I’m going to be adding to this blog all of my posts from my previous site, Only The Game Matters. The site is set to expire soon and I wanted to keep it in circulation, basically for my own vain reasons, but someone else out there may […]

“He couldn’t tell the color of the pitch that came at him. All he could think of was that he was sick to death of waiting, and tongue-out thirsty to begin. The ball was now a dew drop staring him in the eye so he stepped back and swung from the toes.”
-The Natural […]
