First- I had written an entry about this but right before I left to see a movie it wouldn’t save and it vanished.

Second- Officially my godmother’s husband, Mark Neely became to Padres play by play announcer. Click here to learn more. Come on Mark, start an MLBlog.
Third- I found out my baseball team. It is the Angels. At first I was upset it wasn’t the Red Sox but at lest it is not the Yankees.
Forth- A lot of baseball news the past few days.
Magic 8 Ball
In case you don’t know Eat, Sleep, Baseball made number 8 on the latest leader list under fan blogs! I found out about this today because yesterday I had stuff. Like a basketball game that my team won 48-7! Last time was the first time I made the list as 28 and now I’m number 8! Before today my goal was to be 21 so I could put this on my blog.
Okay I out it in any way. This was a pretty good movie. Okay before I go on I would like to dedicate my number 8 to Carl Yastrzemski. Yaz played 23 seasons all with the Boston Red Sox. He was mostly a left fielder but also played third base and first base. He hit .285, with 452 home runs, 1,844 RBI’s, 1,816 runs scored, 168 stolen bases, and had 3,419 hits in 3,308 games. He made 14 all-star games, won seven golden gloves, and won one MVP. The year he won the 1967 A.L. MVP he won the batters triple crown batting .326, with 121 RBI’s, and 44 home runs. Yaz was one of the four great Red Sox left fielders joining Ted Williams, Jim Rice, and that Manny guy. hey Manny was Manny but he still did good playing with the Red Sox. Yaz was one of the greatest Red Sox players ever and one of the greatest players ever in the whole history of the MLB. In 1989 he made it in to the baseball hall of fame on his first try with 423 votes, 94.6%. That same year he had his number eight retired by the Red Sox.

    Even though you’re a Sox fan big congrats. I used to be on that list once upon a time, before I spent weeks in between posts.
    P.S. You shouldn’t be upset your team is the Angels. The Red Sox and Angels are both the same to the Yanks, lol.

    Okay – I’m feeling the pressure! Everyone is out to get me! I’ll have to work even harder! Glad to see you dedicate your ranking to Yaz – he was my favorite player playing growing up. 21 was a great movie. And don’t worry about being the Angels – when my oldest son was an Angel his baseball team won the championship in his division. Congrats on the B-Ball game and congrats on #8! I better get to work! And thanks for the shout out!

    C.O.B.F.- Thanks, when I’m the closer for the Red Sox I will explain it all. 🙂

    V- Thanks, your right I have a few friends on my team.

    Julia- Thanks, that helps a lot that your son won the championship as the Angels. I won it as the Mets. Your Welcome for the shout out.
