Crackberry Nation

blackberry.jpg

looking for a better name for this post which I’ll try to do as much as possible. Basically on a blackberry there is a messenger or IM feature that Cory and I talk over throughout a baseball night and were gonna let you guys in on the cleaned up convo ;-)

 

Cory Schwartz: Pierre over Kemp again tonight… I tried to warn people but they didn’t listen!

Siano: This is a phase. It will end.

Siano: U said same about loney guy gets a hit every day

Siano: Wish I was more optimistic about edwin

Siano: Gomes homer? Huh? Righty?

Siano: Ensberg, betemit and molina starting tonight.

Cory Schwartz: No, Jeter left w/ injury

Cory Schwartz: Dude our pitching in scoresheet has been unreal

Siano: What kind of injury?

Cory Schwartz: Check out Maddux today and Wandy tonight

Cory Schwartz: Don’t know yet

Siano: What was our record?

Siano: Yeah maddux was sick. Cain not so much.

Cory Schwartz: Didn’t see yet, prolly so-so, our offense was quiet

Cory Schwartz: We don’t have a catcher

Cory Schwartz: Jeter quad strain

Siano: Yep heard.

Siano: Moose looks very sharp.

Cory Schwartz: I picked up Floyd in listener lg and he got scratched, there’s a lesson here :-)

Siano: Ha. I wanted melvin mora and went belliard instead what was I thinking.

Cory Schwartz: I looked at Mora but took Floyd vs righty Cory Schwartz: I had Reynodls on Sunday in Coors tho :-)

Cory Schwartz: I have Wandy in nfbc too, oh baby!

Siano: Tremendous.

Siano: Tout I had gavin floys, livian, cliff lee but also d-cab and cc.

Cory Schwartz: Keep DCab away from me

Siano: Yeah its getting ugly. At least k’s.

Cory Schwartz: Awful

Cory Schwartz: We went 4-2 in kings this week with a 1.70 team era!

Siano: Nice

Siano: Dude bourn is unstoppable stealing 2nd. Him and gomez are gonna win the cat.

Siano: He has 6 already. Gomez has at least 5

Cory Schwartz: We’re gonna platoon them and bench Rowand

Siano: Do it

Cory Schwartz: We need a catcher, none of ours play

Siano: Trade gomez or bourn for russ martin.

Cory Schwartz: Your boy Ben has Martin, it would cost us Reyes, Harang, Broxton and god knows what else

Siano: Pass

Cory Schwartz: Valverde #$%^#

Siano: He blew the 3 run lead?

Cory Schwartz: Yep

Siano: Wow

Siano: Albert?

Cory Schwartz: Glaus and Ludwick with the rbi’s

Siano: I’m with you on saunders.

Siano: 92 mph inside fastball not too shabby

Cory Schwartz: Great sleeper

Siano: Who does he remind you of? Fatter pettitte?

Siano: Skinny wells?

Cory Schwartz: Hmmmm

Cory Schwartz: Stuff wise, maybe John Smiley but not as much

Siano: I can’t put a finger on it.

Cory Schwartz: Glavine with better heat but less polish

Siano: Smiley’s ancient history.

Cory Schwartz: Less deception

Siano: Yeah maybe.

Siano: He doesn’t scream anyone.

Siano: There’s goes fausto’s no no

Siano: Wellemeyer pitched some game.

Cory Schwartz: Cards SP’s are off the hizzo right now

Siano: Wandy was great too but u knew that.

Siano: U watching college hoops?

Cory Schwartz: No, baseball

Siano: This kid on memphis is insane.

Siano: Christian guzman 2 triples!!!!!

Siano: Glavine and cook were ridiculous

Cory Schwartz: Lots of scrub P’s coming out hot

Siano: Wild

Siano: Proves pod but we are making bad picks becuase they are all hot. Waddya gonna do.

Siano: I know

Siano: Don’t confuse outcome with decision

Cory Schwartz: Right

Siano: I’m out. Fausto and john adams. Two great americans.

One of the reasons this show works so well is that you guys: a) genuinely love this stuff, and b) would be doing the show whether or not the cameras and mikes are on.

OKay Mr Crackberry, after listening to you go on about the Crackberry I broke down and bought one. Love it, love the Opera Mini browser, and love being able to access my teams and scores all the time. I’ve got the MLB desktop link, and I’d like to know what else you use (baseball or otherwise) on the Crackberry that you would recommend. What app could you not live without. Thanks!

Russell Martin & Travis Hafner will be the death of me.. 0-7 today with about 4 K’s. They are each striking out about 33% of their at bats. I know its early, but man. My average is dead last by a mile (75-325, 0.231 BA). Special thanks to: Shane Victorino and BJ Upton as well. Sorry, had to vent!!

That was easily the most entertaining thing I’ve read all day. Especially this:

“Siano: Who does he remind you of? Fatter pettitte?

Siano: Skinny wells?”

Thanks guys.

Cory,

Nice rant about Torre today. It was almost as good as the Dusty rant. If this keeps up it may actually get there. The points you bring up a very valid. Torre may be stuck into wanting to play players a certain way, but isn’t thinking through how to actually do it. Perfect example is the way he handled Martin Tuesday. Made no sense, and I’m a Martin owner in all 8 of my leagues except for my AL only. I may be almost as big a fan of him as you are. Anyway, you three guys are doing a great job this season. Keep it up, and maybe could you add in a little more info on that scoresheet league. You always talk about the listener leagues, tout and NFBC, but some more info on that type of more exotic league would be cool. Thanks.

The best managers are those who adapt their style to their roster, and Torre simply ain’t doing it so far. There’s time for him to feel out the group and learn how to best use them, but isn’t that what spring training is for??
–CS

My proposed titles:
“Fade to Blackberry”
“Back in Blackberry”
“Crack(berry) of the Bat”
“Cheese and Crackberries”
“Some Peanuts and Crackberry”
That’s all I have for now.
