The Fade to Blackberry image is my desktop background. Very cool. Kudos to the guy who created that bit of genius.

So…stealing the Ride The Lightning cover for Fade to Blackberry? AWESOME. Great idea, I really like it. Its the raw chat, which I enjoy.

Thanks for a great show, awesome graphic.

5 coconuts to the 3S’es and the work you put in for the world of Fantasy Baseball at MLB.TV. Participating has helped me remember the date, so I never have to look at my watch. But its taking some time from the WIFUS — and the the props from the diamonds, and Viva Blue are starting to wear off. She has been suggesting I cook more. I suggest for your Fab 5 you do your 5 recipes dat soothes the Wifus. Woops, Sternsey can do 5 that brings the fly to the spider. Again thanks.

ALoha, Kimo the Kahuna – the slowest rightfielder in the history of baseball.

Hey guys,
Loved the second ed. of the crackberry chat. Siano is an absolute beast with the one liners! As always, the material/perspective/wit you guys have is the best in the business.

Also, personal POD update.
Year to date, I am now at: 3.80 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 5 Wins, 1 Save, 39 K in 47.3 IP … special thanks to J. Washburn (at home vs. KC), Leo Nunez (away vs. Anaheim) and Todd “Back to the” Wellemeyer (at home vs. San Fran) for getting my ERA and WHIP into a delightfully healthy range. Love it! Took Wellemeyer over Niemann yesterday, and got lucky with that decision. Up next I’m targetting Wandy Rodriguez (at home Saturday again Colorado). I will probably grab a bottom rung POD closer for Monday, then do some digging for my next target guy. For guys I will be sitting, I plan on sitting Chris “Cy” Young (elbow issues) today as well as Yovani Gallardo on Sunday. Gallardo got knocked around in the minors, so let’s see him put together once nice start before going “full time” on him…well, full time other than at Coors. And I try to not pitch guys with health issues…just too much at stake, and I’ve seen the bottom drop out far too many times. As someone else said in another thread about C.C. Sabathia, I’d rather miss a complete game shutout than pitch a guy who gives up 6 earnies in 4 IP.

Props to uber-producer Tom Spota for the Fade to Blackberry graphic. Didn’t think he could top his star turn in the Baby Ruth commercial but he just keeps outdoing himself!
