    A dream of mine is to sit in the photo well at an MLB game. On Saturday I received last minute notification that our family was being invited into a dugout suite at Angel Stadium. This being the closest thing I've ever had to that opportunity I took my camera. We've been going through some brutal family stuff lately and this was a total godsend and a respite from the storm. I shot all of these from behind the screen with a good camera, it's no where near the quality that sports photographers use, but it still did a decent job (Canon 60D with the stock lens for camera nerds) I thought you guys would be able to enjoy these with me.

    Super nerds are killing baseball

    yah. I remember when people were stupid too. the current game isn't what it will be 10 year from now. 5 yrs from now. let it evolve. some players are in the wrong place at the wrong time. it boggles my mind that Jayson Werth has a complaint. A guy with a 117 ops+ and 29 WAR who made 136 million dollars. One hundred and thirty six million dollars. I don't care if he's right. close. your. mouth. douchebag.

    It’s almost like the PCL is a whole different level than the majors.

    good grief, have you all forgotten about what i regularly do around here? so let this serve as a gentle reminder that i'm having lunch with Trout on wednesday. i'll let you know what he has to say, if it's important. *sigh*

    McPherson didn't "fizzle out". . . He was a guy who could mash but also had a totally fucked up back that fell apart on him. There was no doubt McPherson was legit as a hitter. His body failed him. So the point is he doesn't belong in any conversation suggesting he was anything like Brandon Wood. One was a bust. One had a busted back. One was healthy and couldn't hit. One could hit and couldn't stay healthy. They are opposites, not similar.

    Gameday: 8/13. Angels @ Padres

    WTF!! Where is Ward? F'n Scioscia. If was a genius he would find a way to get Ward in the lineup even though he is not on the 40 man roster.

    In before... ....he goes 0-4 in his first start and AW calls him a bust. ....after hitting his first HR, Scioscia benches him the next day for Marte.

    It would be nice for Ward to do well. This season could use some positives.

    One thing you need to think about is in game roster construction. Cowart is the only real backup middle infielder (Fernandez can’t really play much 2B.) If Ward had Cowart’s spot today, when Simmons was scratched, then what? So whose spot does Ward take? It kind of has to be Marte, and in that case Fernandez and Cowart are the only 1Bs. When Pujols is DH because Ohtani isn’t playing, that is almost always going to be against a lefty, so you really don’t want Fernandez to play. That’s sort of Marte’s niche. And Cowart then leaves you with a below average hitter who also hasn’t played much of the position defensively. Also Marte is out of options. Maybe nobody claims him and if someone does, maybe you don’t care, but you’re still giving away a whole player for what? So Ward can play 6-7 weeks instead of 4 weeks when the games pretty much don’t matter? I thought Ward would be up after Valbuena got DFA’d, but since he’s not I’m guessing it’s for those reasons. On Sept 1, none of that is an issue anymore.

    D'Shawn Knowles is a badass. He's now hitting .441/.525/.735 in 9 games in Orem, .333/.418/.463 overall in 39 games. 17 years old.

    Super nerds are killing baseball

    I never get this argument. If he is right, then he is right. Whether he is a douchebag or not. Now I don't know if he is correct, but I am guessing there is some validity to his comments. Regardless, baseball is not as interesting as it has been in the past. Maybe it is for guys who love stats and fantasy baseball, but definitely not for the common fan. That is showing in ratings and attendance.
