Random Junk

Okay it is really not junk.

1. Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day everyone. I think it is fitting to have Barack Obama go in to office the day after Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I must say I supported John McCain, but we must congratulate Mr. Obama on his historical achievement. We also must support him on being the next president of the U.S.A. So congrats Mr. Obama I hope you do well.

2. The teams for the Super Bowl are set. Yesterday the Arizona Cardinals upset the Philadelphia Eagles 32-25. The Cardinals were 9-7 in the regular season while the Eagles were 9-6-1. My Patriots were 11-5 and didn’t make the playoffs. The other team that got in was the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-14. A while back I said the Steelers would beat the Giants in the Super Bowl. I still think the Steelers will win it all. I can’t wait for the Super Bowl and the commercials!


3. The Chicago Cubs traded outfielder, Felix Pie to the Orioles. In exchange the Cubs got Garrett Olson and prospect Henry Williamson. I think the Orioles got the better of the deal. Last season Pie hit .241, with one home run, ten RBI’s, and stole three bases. Olson had a record of nine-ten, with a 6.65 ERA, and 83 strike outs. Williamson in A ball had a record of zero-one, an ERA of 3.72, with three saves, and 42 strikeouts. Olson could compete with Sean Marshall for the fifth spot in the rotation.


4. The World Baseball Classic Rosters will be announced this evening. Some players who will play for team U.S.A. are Dustin Pedroia, Derek Jeter, Roy Oswalt, Jake Peavy,  Brad Hawpe, Grady Sizemore, Ryan Braun, and David Wright. For team Canada Justin Morneau will play. I think Jason Bay will play for team Canada too. For team Dominican Republic  Alex Rodriguez will play and David Ortiz will try to play. For team Japan Dice-K and Ichiro will play. The classic looks like a good one. I think team U.S.A. will win though.

5. Today in the NBA America will find out who will be the forth dunker in the 2009 Sprite Slam Dunk challenge. For the first time ever America got to vote for who should be the forth dunker, Joe Alexander, Rudy Fernandez, or Russell Westbrook. I voted for Russell Westbrook because I think Alexander needs to work on just being a better player than a better dunker. Fernandez plays on the Portland Trail Blazers and I don’t like the Trail Blazers that much. Another reason I voted for Westbrook is because the team he plays on, the Oklahoma City Thunder, as of January 19th has a record of eight-34. I think it could make the Oklahoma City Thunder feel a lot better. The winner will face off against Rudy Gay, Nate Robinson, and defending dunk champion “Superman” Dwight Howard.


Not Bad For An 11 Year Old

Tonight I went to mlblogs and saw that mlblogosphere was under most recent activity. I clicked wondering what was new on it. I noticed the cool profile picture. 

I then noticed that it was a new latest leader’s list. I then started scrolling down and praying that Eat, Sleep, Baseball would be on there and I was so excited to see this.


I was so happy! It was the first time I’ve been on the latest leader list. I have been working so hard lately. Yesterday I did eight entries in a day! Here is the whole list.

Congrats Julia, Ben, Mark, Kaybee, Baby Paul, Elizabeth, Amazin86er, and others on making the list. Thanks to all readers and commenters.

On January, 12, 2009 at 6:53 I got my 100th comment! Thanks all commenters and readers (again) for 100 comments and 28th on the latest leader list. So today I got 100 comments, was 28th on the latest leader list, and got on the front page of mlblogs for doing eight entries in one day about the baseball hall of fame. Not bad for an eleven year old. Also Mike Schmidt will coach team USA in the World baseball Classic. 


Team U.S.A.

Davey Johnson will lead team U.S.A. as their manager in the World Baseball Classic. This team has rival players as well as friends. Derek Jeter’s double play partner will be no other then Dustin Pedoria. Maybe they can get together and stop all these fights and pitches at heads and spiking guys on the base paths . . . just kidding. John Lackey the right hander for the Angels will be one of the starters. Maybe even face off against Dice-K in the championship. The Braves will have to players on the roster Chipper Jones and Brian McCann. I like Chipper on the team McCann I guess. Ryan Braun the young, slugger, for the Brew Crew joined Friday. Today Grady Sizemore joined as the center fielder. This team is young (with the exception of Chipper) and great (with the exception of Jeter). The classic is almost as good as baseball in the olympics, well not really. The Classic brings Red Sox and Yankees together, like me and my dad. Yes, my dad is a Yankee fan. It brings Cubbies and White Sox together and Dodgers and Angels. Look for team U.S.A. to go all the way and maybe win it all unless they get bad bench players and bad players to fill in the rest of the positions.

Prediction 
Win it all against Japan.
I so wish that Lester or Beckett face off in the championship against Dice-K!
