Postseason Thoughts from a Fan Standing on the Outside: Year 2
September 29th, 2011 by slangon

Can I just start things off by saying that last night was one of the best baseball watching nights I’ve had in what seems like forever. My head was spinning trying to keep up with all the craziness that was happening. My television was on a constant loop from ESPN for the Boston/Baltimore game to […]

Hot Damn! What a Way to End It.
September 28th, 2011 by slangon

Turns out this last day of the season is so chock full of craziness, I almost don’t care that Mets are going out on a sour note and will end up with a losing record for the third year in a row. In case you missed it, one of the guys on this card went […]

I finished up with the Johnny Lattner autograph […]

Another Trade
