Another Quick Dispatch, Done Half-Assed in Honour of Working People Everywhere

Another bullet point post, as a couple news items popped up today.
  • David Eckstein is now a Diamondback. I often referred to him as a weasel, which is similar to a mongoose. The mongoose is the natural enemy of the cobra, so this move will end badly. It has been written. Oh Davey, you shouldn't have been here in the first place. If you had to be here, if probably should have played sometimes. Either way, I'm sure his brief stay with the Jays will quickly fade from my memory.
  • Roy Halladay is still awesome. He beat the Yankees four times this year, something that says a lot about him, and a little about the Yankees.
  • Rocco went 3 for 3 yesterday, raising his OPS to 1.063. Make that paper Rocco.
  • Lady Andrea of Bugs & Cranks and Ladies... fame enlisted my help for a Ladies piece she did about Mancrushes. Check it out, please don't mind my awful spelling.
I don't know about you, but three-day weekends are pretty much the best. Work blows. If only there was a Jay game to attend, I'd be that much happier. The fluky Twins come into town to start the week, then a Rocco weekend! An outing is in the works.


  1. Lloyd, I was glancing through Wilner's blog and came across this comment that might interest you. It seems he's not really on the Rocco-Train.

    What do you think of the Blue Jays going after Rocco Baldelli and maybe trying to sign him to a minor league deal hoping he can acheive his potential?

    MW: I wouldn’t go near Rocco Baldelli with a ten-foot pole.

  2. Wilner has broken my heart. He and I will have words. Strong ones.

  3. No mancrushes on Doc or Johnny Mac? I'm disappointed. Heck, even Spencer worked in Doc into his.

  4. Follow the link in the Ladies story. My all man crush team! Johnny Mac & Halladay both included.
