< 50 words …. Tuesday, April 12th

April 12, 2011 |

I will begin today’s blog by promoting a WNST sponsor. Yesterday afternoon, I chewed some PLOW ON gum …. and 18 hours later, I’m still awake. That stuff works …..

Manny Being Manny
.

A short year ago, Orioles prized prospect Manny Machado was playing high school baseball, in Florida. Today, he’s enjoying an impressive start for the Delmarva Shorebirds, going 7-15 with 7 walks, to begin the season.

Let the hype begin …..
.

Burying Tampa?
.

On the heels of Manny Ramirez’s abrupt departure, I have heard the predictions of DOOM and GLOOM for the Rays. Count me among those who disagree. Pitching still wins ballgames, and Tampa has a very good starting staff.

They’ll win at least 75 games. And I will bet on it …..
.

End Of The Road?
.

It appears that Razor Ramon (ie: Scott Hall) has one foot in the mass grave of wrestlers who died way too young. In the last month, he’s been hospitalized for overdosing on prescription drugs and he recently staggered into an independent match; needing two guys to help him into the ring.
.

Call Me “Coach”
.

Just as Jose Canseco appears on the verge of fading into obscurity, he emerges with renewed relevance. Today, he adds BASEBALL MANAGER to his resume’. He’ll skipper the Yuma Scorpions of the independent North American League, this summer.

How long ’til Ozzie secretly subs for him? NEVER …. he’s assistant coach.
.

Money For Nothing
.

I have never watched an episode of Jersey Shore. And I’m pretty confident my streak of avoiding it will continue. But, somebody is watching this cast of meatheads and bimbos. The cast just got raises to the tune of $100,000 per episode.

That’s GREAT money for behaving like a nut sack.
.

.150
.

Yep, Albert Pujols is hitting a buck fifty thru the first ten games. No need to panic, he’ll likely hit .400 over the next dozen contests. But, can you imagine if this turned out to be a subpar season for the soon-to-be free agent?

Nah …. I can’t imagine it.
