Dodgers Continue To Impress

Dodgers Continue To Impress

No matter how deep, every major-league team can always use more starting pitching, and the Dodgers are no exception. Thus far, Chad Billingsley (5-2), Clayton Kershaw (4-2), Hiroki Kuroda (5-2), and John Ely (3-1), have done a solid job, but landing Roy Oswalt, who pitches for the Houston Astros, with a 2-6 record and a […]

Cabrera Knows How To Hit

When Miguel Cabrera was 16 years old, the Florida Marlins invited him to a workout, where they would watch him swing the bat, run the bases, and throw the ball. The first thing he did was field a grounder. Amazingly, the scouts had seen enough, and signed him on the spot. This would be the […]

City Council Clowns

Think of the smallest thing you can imagine. What would that be? Maybe the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel painted on the head of a pin. Maybe the lint from a gnat’s belly-button, or an atom in a speck of dust. For me, there’s no contest. The smallest thing I can imagine is the collective […]

Vancouver the Treasure Called Hollywood North

Things happen here that just don’t happen with the fluidity of frequency (hey, that was kind of poetic) that they would (technically- “would not”) in say Bobo, Alabama, Moosup, Connecticut or even in Beaver Crossing, Nebraska for that matter. Take the following […]
