Go vote for "The Sponge" Lew Ford of the Minnesota Twins to claim the final AL All-Star spot...and while you're voting for him, might I suggest Aramis Ramirez of the Cubs for the Final NL spot.

On second thought....for the NL vote, while Ramirez is a Cub and certainly deserving of an All-Star nod, Bobby Abreu is a very underrated player and has been snubbed for many years in a row now, so give him some consideration as well.

Overbay get's respect.

I think Overbay deserved to go, but look at the depth at first base. Thome has 27 homeruns, Casey might be just a smidge better than O, and Helton is Helton (and the Rockies need someone on the team). Overbay could have gone if he were in the AL, but I won't complain. The Brewers got a couple deserving guys. I'm actually a little surprised Sheets was named. It seems that these days strikeouts and era mean nothing and wins mean everything, but justice was achieved in this case.

Does anyone else get sick to their stomach when they hear about or see a 13 year old girl singing about how her boyfriend, who she thought could be "the one", "cheated" on her and they broke up? You know how she found out? She found her friend's number on his cell phone. There are a million things wrong with this story already. Why do 13 year olds all have cell phones now? Why would any 13 year old (i was in 7th grade when I was 13) think that anyone could be "the one". Man, either I'm getting old, or kids are just getting dumber.

Who the hell are you talking about? When you're young every one is the one. I don't think having a cell phone when you're young is that big of a deal (it's probobly a Godsend for parents.)

Now...did she assume he was cheating because of the number, did she find the number and then do more investigating, or did she consider him even having the number "cheating".

When you're that young, you have crushes, you're not thinking about "the one." That's stupid Jeremiah. Relationships didn't last long enough for that person to be the one. Not that I would really know, since I was a loser, but um yea.
As for kids having cell phones, I find them extremely unnecessary. I don't have one now, and I'm doing just fine. Kids don't need cell phones because wherever they are, there are phones. Have your kids call if they're going to change locations and it's all good. Give'em some change for pay phones and all is well.
There. Word up.

Then what does it have to do with?

If kids can't be trusted to tell their parents where they are, then maybe they shouldn't be hanging out with their friends. Parents don't need to know what the kids are doing every second that they are gone. If I went over to a friend's house, I went over to a friends house. If we then went to the mall, we went to the mall. My parents just knew I was with with that friend and they were fine with that, because they knew I wouldn't being doing anything wrong.

I didn't get a cell phone until I went off to college. But then again, I was a loser in junior high and high school, or at least I did very little with my friends. But when I did, it wasn't hard to find a phone to call my parents and tell them where I was.

The Brew is only 2 games out of the wildcard, and will be 1 game back after tomorrow. They should make a move for another right-handed bat with some power. They've got enough depth in their farm system to give up somebody.

The Bucks are really trying to stock up on long-time Blazers. They just hired Jerome Kersey as an assistant coach who will rejoin Terry Porter, his Blazer teammate of 10 years. As exciting as that is, why are there no rumors of free agents in Milwaukee? Why why why?

Even though it was against the Royals, the Twins just pulled off an impressive feat. Brad Radke, Johan Santana and Kyle Lohse pitched 3 consecutive complete game shutouts as the Twins outscored the Royals 25 - 0 in their 3 game series.

I'll have you know that I didn't draft him, he was hurt for a long time, and now that he's heating up I was still able to pick him up on 3 out my 4 teams. Though on two of those I have Martinez from Cleveland and I can't just drop him, so I'm keeping two catchers right now which is not normal. S to the Swizzeep! Filthy Cubs fans best be in full retreat tonight. Brewers and Twins pitching has been good lately. Is it too soon to hope for a Series matchup?

"It was a very enjoyable ballgame from my office," said a smiling manager Ron Gardenhire, who was ejected in the second inning.

When doesn't this guy get ejected? Oh well, just thought it was a funny statement. Who's ready for bobblehead day tomorrow?

Well, the Bucks are finally involved in some offseason movement. They let Skinner go back to the 76ers. Probably a good idea because of what they're paying him. But he was pretty important to the Bucks last year and had his best season ever. Hopefully it was a fluke. I'm not sure what this means for the Bucks. They have about 5 real players on their roster now, and I don't know what Ford's condition is. Either it means they have their eye on a big man (Boozer is off the table, signed with Utah), they think Haislip is ready to start, or they think that Zaza guy is awesome.

The Packers took out the garbage today and traded Reynolds. The fact his he stunk so much that no one really cares about this move.

Bobblehead nights should be reserved for players currently on the team. I'm awarding the Brewers loss tonight (if they lose) to Wes Helms for not only making two errors in a row, but also for doing so without the proper technique. If you're going to miss a grounder, get your fat ### in front of the ball and at least keep it in the infield. It's what you're taught from day one. He's also 0 for 3. And I've never really liked him. Looks more like a DH then a 3rd baseman (and a DH that's hitting .261 with 2 HRs at that). I was just looking at the Brewers batting stats, and to my suprise Grieve has the second best batting average of the regulars. I was optomistic when the Brewers picked him up. His power is down from his best years, but his average and obp are up. He'll probably never be an all-star, but he's still a pretty good hitter. The Brewers need some bats to get hot or they're going to fail. Obermueller is hitting .381, maybe he can play some 3rd base.

I kinda feel bad for Helms, because from what I hear, he is one of the hardest workers on the team. Ben Grieve is getting better. His avg and obp is getting higher because he is getting more aggressive. He has always been accused of taking to many pitches, so a little touch of aggressiveness has helped him out. He still is a little shaky in right field. He won't necessarily make errors out there, but he is so slow and not very aggressive at all on defense. I think Podsednik and Jenkins are on the verge of getting hot. I hope anyway.

Another short rant....

This morning on ESPN Talk Radio, Mike and Mike, they were discussing 1st half Cy Young Pitchers....Here are the names of the NL guys they came up with: Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Jason Schmidt, Tom Glavine. That's it. Ben Sheets right now is 2nd in the majors in Strikeouts and 1st in all of baseball in ERA. He has a better Record than Glavine, in fact, Sheets has better stats in every category except for homeruns allowed, (sheets has 10, glavine has 7). Also, sheets has better stats than Schmidt except for Record and hits. Schmidt has 28 more walks than Sheets. Clemens is mentioned simply because of who he is, and Johnson is pretty much the same. They both have good records and have high strikeout totals, but in my semi-biased, but consciencious opinion, Ben Sheets is the best pitcher in the National League, maybe all of baseball.

Well, that sucked. I think I'll go down to the ballpark today and see if I can play a game or two for the Brewers because no one on the team seems to want to get hits.

The Heat seem prepared to make an offer for Shaq that the Lakers will take. Sounds like Odom, Grant, and a 1st round pick or Butler. Either way, it's a good deal for the Lakers. Grant isn't that good, but Odom is solid and Butler or a 1st round pick would be a good pick up as well. They would also move Shaq to the East. I'm not so sure it's a good deal for Miami though. I guess if the Bucks had the same players to offer I would want them to do it. But Shaq is at an age where almost every other Hall of Fame center started to fade away. Plus he's been injury prone. Ok, I just took a look at their roster. If they trade the three players, they will be down to 3 players that scored over 8 points a game last year, including Shaq. I don't think the Heat should do it.

Obermueller got sent down to the minors. I think he'll be back in the big show sometime, but he just wasn't getting the job done. He usually gave 4 good innings, but after that he got hammered pretty much all the time. He pitched a good game Thursday though. Then Helms had to blow it. If that hadn't happened Obbie probably gets through the 5th with the score 3-0 and who knows what happens then.

"Pedro's departure was a non-issue with Kevin Millar.

'Starting pitchers, once they pitch,' Millar said, 'you're better off sending them home anyway because they're the non-athletes on the team.'"

Millar always has something to say. I wondering if this was an attempt at humor or a knock on Pedro.

Shaq has given his blessing to the Miami trade. The only question now is will Miami do it, and will the third piece by Butler or a first-round pick. They need to keep Butler for a third scoring option I think. It's still a bit of a risky trade, but they probably become the third favorite in the East after Detroit and Indiana, depending on what the Nets do, and I suppose on what the Knicks do. Does anyone know what Houston's status is?.

FOX baseball is the worst. I hate that guy and that chick. I don't even know their names that's how bad they are. At least the fans booed for all the Yankees.

That would have been super lame. If this game never gets started I'm just going to watch the BET awards. Put Sheets in!!!!!!!

Kolb did his job. Too bad he doesn't get more strike outs. Then I could call him K-unit.

Is anything worse than watching Janet Jackson perform? I don't think she sang a single word, she was just dancing the whole time. You have to sing at least some of the words when you perform at an awards show. I mean Elephant Man could sing his part of the song. Although in all fairness I think Janet was already eating her hair the whole time without singing.
