The Bedard Enigma

By Iron Chef Leftovers:


In today’s Seattle Times, Steve Kelley wrote about what the Mariners should do with Erik Bedard. He wrote this nugget:

Timing will be everything.

Bedard made his 15th start of the season Monday. In both 2008 and 2009, he broke down after 15 starts. Is he fixed, as healthy as […]

The Patrick Ianni

THE Patrick Ianni

The Sounders scored four goals last Thursday. This was a good thing for me, as 3 or more goals means everybody gets a free haircut, and I was due.

When my haircut was about done a woman came into the shop with two kids, about ages 8 and […]

San Giorgio Spaghetti

By Iron Chef Leftovers

For some reason tonight as I am washing the dishes after dinner, the San Giorgio spaghetti song pops into my head. I am pretty sure that the commercial only aired in the New York metro area based on the line: “So grab a fork, come on New York; New York loves […]

C’mon Rodg, Hit Him With Your Wallet

Lebron had this to say after the Heat were defeated by the Mavs in the NBA Finals:

[Wow, I Googled “Lebron James” to find the link and the autofill popped up “Lebron James Jokes” as the #1 search. There’s definitely some vitriol going on.]

Doesn’t Suck to be Them

By Blaidd Drwg

For those of you luck to be attending the Mariners – Phillies series in the middle of June, you don’t exactly get cheated on your pitching matchups (assuming the current rotations hold and there are no postponed games between then and now):

June 17th – Roy Oswalt squares off with Michael Pineda […]

The Erik Bedard Trade – Revisited

By Blaidd Drwg

Larry Stone of the Seattle Times wrote recently that Bedard’s recent pitching has been good enough to make it look like the trade the Mariners made for him back in 2008 wasn’t a complete bust. In case you don’t remember, the M’s traded 5 players – Tony Butler, Adam Jones, Kameron Mickolio, […]

Restart! Restart!

A funny Citibank commercial that had a brief moment in the sun:

Winning Ugly

By Blaidd Drwg

Last night, aided by 6 walks and 3 HR, the Mariners had one of the ugliest 7-0 victories I have ever seen against Tampa Bay. The Mariners actually only had 4 hits in the game, but because of the timeliness of the hitting and the fine pitching of Jason Vargas, it did […]

For the Baseball Fan Who has Everything…

All of the discomfort of sitting in Fenway with more leg room!

By Blaidd Drwg

The Red Sox are finally installing new seats in Fenway. Of course this means that they need to sell the old ones, and you can purchase them here. As the owner of several stadium seats, these do make […]
