For the World Series this year, MLB is partnering with a different charity for each game, and the first game is partnered with Stand Up 2 Cancer. Not as well known in the UK until last Friday, but I wrote… Continue Reading →

Player love or Team Pride?

It’s been a while since I posted about baseball, so if you’ve started following my blog recently and are expecting back to back book reviews, I’m sorry! It’s not been the best season so far for the White Sox, but… Continue Reading →

Review: Dirk Hayhurst – Out of My League

It’s been a while since I posted a review, not been feeling great the last few days so had a break from the laptop. But this book was awesome! I kind of knew what to expect from the book after… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Dirk Hayhurst – Out of My League

I’ve been waiting for this book since I pre-ordered it in October, so I’m very glad that it finally arrived, especially when I started seeing a lot of tweets about people in America reading the book when I still had… Continue Reading →

Ultimate Batting Practice? Maybe Not…

The MLB Fan Cave tweeted a link to this video earlier this week. http://twitter.com/#!/MLBFanCave/status/101053302896214016 When I first watched it, I thought it was quite impressive, but now I’m 99% sure it’s fake. Even so, it’s a pretty good fake video,… Continue Reading →

600 Homers or 3000 Hits?

Last night, The MLB Fan Cave posed the following question on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/MLBFanCave/status/93080982881697792 (More impressive milestone: 3,000 hits or 600 home runs?). First of all, both milestones are pretty damn impressive. You have to be at the top of your… Continue Reading →

The Grubbs Effect

This week my website is ‘suffering’ from what I have now deemed ‘The Grubbs Effect’. Usually, my website gets between 50-150 views a week. After I went to the Wakey!Wakey! show last week, Mike Grubbs re-tweeted my website link: http://twitter.com/#!/WakeyWakey/status/81279347998199809… Continue Reading →

Lillibrilliant?!

I gave up on posting game recaps when the White Sox gave up on winning, but I had to write a post about Brent Lillibridge in last night’s game against the Yankees. Last night’s game didn’t start until midnight UK… Continue Reading →

The award for best spring training tweet goes to…

… Jim Margalus. Ozzie and Kenny decided to take both guys rather than some freaky mash-up, but it really made me laugh! http://twitter.com/#!/JimMargalus/status/51476034423488512

Don’t Worry, Be Happy!

I’ve always been quite a worrier, so when Michael Schlact put this quote on Twitter, it seemed perfect! Not much else to say really, other than follow him cos he’s a great guy! “Worrying is like a rocking chair: it gives… Continue Reading →
