After a long vacation and off season I, Jjaks Clayton, return to blogging. If you don’t mind it would be appreciated if you hold your applause until the end of the show.
Spring training is under way and that means a lot of exciting times around the baseball universe. Aside from all the real baseball news happening we here at ESH have some things going on as well. You already know we will have a representative in Sarasota for spring training stretching his lungs for battle, but that’s not all…
Tom Ludlow and I will be reliving the joy of the 1977 Orioles season via a Strat-O-Matic reenactment as part of a blog called Play That Funky Baseball where they replay the games of the 1977 season “managed” by various baseball writers and bloggers around the country. Since none of us were even born back then, we were logical choices to head up the squad for the Orioles. Anyway, Jeff Polman runs the site and he obviously gets us. He sent this along to help motivate us, and it worked…big time. Go check it out and make sure to visit the sites of all the other bloggers/writers and let them know why we are better.
Now that you’ve had time to take that in, I’ll let you in on a couple other things going on. Some of us here in the ESH house have a “Who’s Your Boy?” board. It helps us keep track of who our boys are and also ensure no one else tries to take credit for one of your boys doing something great, like striking out 4 times in one game or hitting a game winning grand slam. I’ll explain why this is important in a separate post but until then let your imaginations run wild.
Also, spring training means that fantasy baseball season is almost upon us. We will help you out with all your fantasy needs, and we do mean ALL. We’ll have our own Eutaw Street Hooligans league (maybe we let a few readers in on the fun?) and make the results public with weekly blogs. Also we will answer any questions or problems you face in your own leagues, so send in your questions and be ready to be amazed by our baseball knowledge.
It’s good to be back.
