I believe this is supposed to be a comprehensive review of Ichiro’s career:
Perhaps he should think about adopting the ankle-length blue hair seen in this video as his real-life hairstyle…but I have a feeling that if anyone’s going to do that, it’s going to be Brian Wilson.

I got a phone call today from the Angels selling season ticket plans. Despite the single-game tickets I’ve bought over the last decade-plus, this is the first time I’ve ever been called by a salesperson from any team — never the Angels previously, not the Dodgers, not any of the teams we’ve seen on the [...]

2010: We go on a baseball road trip, there are at least two perfect games during the season, and…?
Mark Buehrle’s perfect game today is the first to occur since a few months before our road trip, which I note is coming up on its 5th anniversary. Of course I’m sorry it came against the Rays, but we like Buehrle here at baseballrelated.com.
Those of you who know me know why I think this poster, now appearing on my living room wall, is totally awesome — it combines two of my interests.
It’s also a bit of a lie. There’s no regular “historic streetcar” service to AT&T Park right now; it’s only in the planning and occasional demonstration [...]
