>Rays-Sox War

>Wow it must be the 21st century. The Red Sox have won two World Series and their heated rival in the AL East is the Tampa Rays!

Here’s a fun account of last night’s fight that I found:

And Coco had this to say:
“After that, people were trying to pull my hair like little girls. Instead of throwing some real punches or something like that..”

Little Girls? I gotta see that video! Oh…here it is:

>The Days Off Nonsense

>You are 25 years old working a full-time job. Sometimes you even have to work 20 days in a row. However, you are young energetic and make five million dollars a year.

Your gig? You have to come to the ballpark, usually late afternoon, sometimes late morning. You field some grounders, throw a few balls, and hang out in the batting cage You have some stress in your life from the press and idiotic arrogant bloggers.

When the baseball game starts you spend about 90 minutes standing newar one of the bases, and you get to bat usually 4 to 5 times a game. Shower, deal with more idiots, and go home. Extensive travel.

Sure maybe it becomes a daily grind – everyone has that whether you’re an astronaut, a farmer, a trucker or The Captain of the Mets.

What doesn’t make sense is your manager giving you a day off. You still have to show up early, work out before the game and deal with idiots. Sure you don’t have to stand in the sun (or lights) for 90 minutes and you don’t have to swing that heavy bat four or five times. A day off would be – stay home, hit the beach, we’ll see you tomorrow.

If my boss made me commute and sit at my desk but not use the compuer or phone – well that’s not a day off there boss-man. I’m here anyway, I might as well answer the phone.

So Willie, let Wright play. Let him play in 2500 straight games if he’s feeling fine. There’s no such thing as a “day off.” It’s a benching. Don’t bench the Captain.

>How To Manage A Major League Baseball Team

> Congratulations, you’ve been hired as a major league baseball manager.

Today we will learn about one of the tools you will use as a major league manager.

This is called a bullpen phone.

You may be asking yourself, what’s a phone doing in a dugout? Shouldn’t I be managing the game? I won’t have time to talk on the phone!

Your instincts are correct. However, a phone can come in quite handy during a baseball game.

As a major league manager you will be expected to make judgments such as “hmmm this pitcher doesn’t seem to have it today.” Now this can be a difficult decision to make, but luckily as a major league manager you will be provided with an assistant called a “pitching coach.” Also if you are fortunate enough to be playing at home, a “Howie Rose 40,000” fanbase will help you arrive at this conclusion.

So now you’ve decided that your pitcher isn’t pitching well. Perhaps he has walked three batters this innning.

At the first sense of trouble, say after two consecutive walks – you can pick up this phone and it will be answered by someone who works for you called a bullpen coach. You say to the bullpen coach “I think I may need another pitcher.” Your assistant will take care of the rest!

Then, when you finally decide that your pitcher doesn’t have it (at home the “Howie Rose 40,000” will help you) all you have to do is walk to the pitchers mound and ask the pitcher for the ball. Out of nowhere, another pitcher will arrive!

It’s so simple almost anyone could do it! Almost anyone.
