Don’t Cry For Me, Miguel Batista

By Blaidd Drwg

Batista has been around so long, that he pitched for the Montreal Expos when they were still playing in Montreal.

Miguel Batista was recently released by the Mets and it appears his career is over. He will be “best” remembered around these parts as one of the worst free agent signings […]

Avocado Yogurt Dressing

By Iron Chef Leftovers

It is summer and it is hot out, so you probably don’t feel like cooking anything in the kitchen and you don’t always have veggies that can be grilled easily. I tend to eat a lot of salad in the summer – they are quick and easy, refreshing and tasty salad […]

Beer And Honey Bread

by A.J. Coltrane

I thought this bread compared not unfavorably to the No Knead bread we’ve all been enjoying.

To back up a bit, I was looking to make a bread with the following characteristics:

1. It needed to be out of the oven within two hours of when I got home from work.

2. […]

Beer of the Week: Fort George Spruce Budd Ale

By Iron Chef Leftovers

I like beers that are different. I have a ton of them stocked in the beer cellar right now that will keep me writing beer reviews well into 2013 (assuming the Mayans were not right). Recently, I saw an update to Chuck’s Hop Shop tap list that Fort George Spruce Budd […]

Nearly Award Winning Chickpea Salad

Bench Him Like Beckham?

By Blaidd Drwg

Ichiro Traded!!!!!1!!1!!!!

by A.J. Coltrane

Is that enough exclamation points?!!??

Seriously though, I’m floored. Imagine that Somebodies such as Tony Gwynn or Barry Larkin had experienced a late career trade — I was absolutely convinced Ichiro would retire, from American Baseball at least, as a Mariner. I’m about equally as surprised that Ichiro requested the trade himself, and that it was months ago.

Mashiko on July 3rd

By Iron Chef Leftovers

From the Mashiko Facebook page on why you should have come into the restaurant for sushi on July 3rd:

Get your sustainable sushi on tonight! We won’t be here tomorrow ’cause we’ll be busy blowing stuff up.

The Mariners and Royals

By Blaidd Drwg

Before you get too excited about the Mariners taking 3 out of 4 against the Royals and putting up 31 runs in the process, the Royals probably have the worst starting rotation in the majors. Let’s take a look at the guys who the Mariners faced in the 4 game series:

Game […]
