it's been decided
i’m going to watch the yin/yang psych episodes for 48 hours in a row. While watching Matt Moore pitch and trying not to get turned on of course because sweet jesus is his stuff good.
super brief playoff predictions
Before I make my official predictions, I’ll note that, to me, Texas and Philadelphia seem the two teams best suited for a World Series run, given the things that are important in the playoffs. That said, I’m going with this… LDS Phils over Cards in 3 Brewers over Dbacks in 4 Rays over Rangers in 5 Tigers over Yankees in 5 LCS Brewers over Phils in 7 Tigers over Rays in 6 ...

passthemike replied to your post: you are a complete asshole. who the fuck do you think you are? some of the things you said are just fucking ridiculous. stop assuming that you’re the only one who knows about baseball, because you just make yourself look like the fucking asshole you are. maybe it’s from Cuddyer man, if only. That would be my second blogger-athlete feud in 2 weeks. That’s a...
I keep forgetting to tell a Michael Cuddyer/magic tricks joke. But if you follow me on twitter you saw my Bill Self/Velvet Phog/Seinfeld joke, so 1 for 2 isn’t bad.

I just wrote somewhere around 4,000 words and made two tables about the Twins, the Jets, and college basketball. My head and neck hurt. The line for giving me massages starts over there ————->
passthemike replied to your post: I don’t know what this Cuddyer business is, but I’d love for Kubel to be in a Sox uniform next year. You can have J.D. Drew… I mean Kubel makes $5.25M. What will he get? 8-10M per year? I honestly have no idea what he will get. He’s a good hitter, but if he can’t go in the outfield he’s more like a replacement level DH. I probably...

I am honestly not saying this to be a contrarian
but college basketball is still better. As awesome as this night of baseball was (and it was), there is a night like this each and every March. College basketball is awesome and I love it and you should too. The end.
passthemike: interneting: Every time I talk to gym bro I start visible shaking. HOW AM I 21?! Shaking with nervousness every time someone pretty pays me the least bit of attention SHOULD NOT BE A THING after the age of like 14. If “gym bro” equals “an intellectual woman” and “21” equals “old”, yup. also, if you call someone gym bro unironically you are the worst human on earth.
So I was on the phone with an ex tonight
And when we were hanging up she (accidentally I hope) said love you. Alas, wrong ex
one person to discuss How I Met Your Mother on the reg with me so I can avoid calling the person I usually discuss it with.

YOUR HORRIBLE STAT ABOUT THE TWINS THAT MAKES ME...
everyone who started a game for the Twins in 2001 ahem, 2011 of course, a total of 9 pitchers: 10.7 fWAR Justin Verlander: 7 fWAR /cries
How quickly one can go from sympathetic figure to just the opposite. Sweet work, Wayne Simmonds. (via @twolinepass aka Ryan Lambert)
dudes and gals
quoting weepy song lyrics in your facebook status sucked in 8th grade, and it sure sucks now when i am in 18th grade. Stop it. Unless it is this song of course.
Your depressing baseball stat of the day
2011 Twins: 10 fWAR Jacoby Ellsbury: 8.8 fWAR Jose Bautista 8.5 fWAR or, as I like to call it, the 2011 Twins are your AL MVP!
I was wondering when it would happen
I saw a post a couple days ago where someone remarked it was the first one of “those” deaths where it was someone you knew. Well that day was yesterday. A friend of mine from high school who I played baseball with. Fuck.
the first date is in the books, and meh
I’ll just say not being a good kisser is an automatic no and leave it at that
yeah this is going to just be me whining for a paragraph (edit: 2 paragraphs!) so feel free to skip: I have a date tomorrow. The girl is super cute. Short, which I love, curvy, which I love, has hair, which I am also a big fan of, etc. etc. She is also super nice, funny, accommodating (I have had to cancel dates twice now and she hasn’t cared. She also is the girl who was going to let me do...

Moneyball is not about OBP. Whew. That felt good to say. There is a prevailing thought that because OBP has gone mainstream, Moneyball is dead. Wrong. The book was never about OBP, or Jeremy Brown, or Chad Bradford. It is about, when faced with economic disadvantages, finding characteristics that your competition undervalues. Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus has said that Moneyball is...

Dating post disguised as HIMYM commentary
HOLY SHIT VICTORIA IS BACK speaking of long lost loves, today I saw the girl I had a date with who wouldn’t call me back*. Apparently she lives on the first floor of my building. I pussed out and didn’t say anything but I imagine I will run into her again given how I go by her apartment 4-5 times per day, and I certainly will then** * ok so not long lost loves. More like moderately...

A Jayhawk is a blue bird with a red head and a big yellow beak that wears boots....– Jill Jess (for the full story, read this). Bitch-slapping Missouri by telling them that not only do they suck but that Missouri State is on their level is an awesome response to their stupid (and racist) comments earlier this week.
