Loser. Good thing it doesn’t matter. Boyer allowed five baserunners in two innings, but no runs, which … Continue reading “Braves lose, doesn’t matter; tribute video!”
I’ve added a widget to the sidebar, under opposite the search box. You can revert to the previous look by selecting “Connections”, or you can choose another theme.

Anyway, the long-awaited (two days) sequel to “Mike Hampton Flies a Helicopter”! UPDATE: This is not my day. Give me a few minutes and I’ll have … Continue reading “I blame Hampton”
