My good friend Connor O’neil, who you’ve seen in the comments section as Sox fan in hiding, took the time to layout a reason for why you should hate every team in baseball this year. Consider this a handy pocket guide while heckling at inter-league games. Keep in mind that it’s just for fun and not everything should be taken seriously. The Marlins aren’t gay and Pujols is probably worth every penny as much as the gross national debt…so don’t get your panties in a twist. Enjoy.

Jjaks swears he’s going to put up the TWIT for this week tonight so you can read that tomorrow. Also have something from a guest coming up soon. Until then…
Cuts! We have cuts today. Most are from the not surprising category. Reimold to re-slay AAA pitchers. Hendrickson is gone. Winn is gone. This is awesome by the way:
I’m sure most (some) of you expected me to cover twitter arguments in this weeks edition as yesterday was chock full o’ them. But I’m not going to beat a dead horse. Or a TV personality. Our last twitter exchange, the one before I was blocked, should pretty much put the nail in that coffin.
What we’ll focus on instead is the incessant repeating of Vlad Guerrero’s reputation for being “the best bad ball hitter” of all time, by everyone on TV or radio that utters his name. I think it’s been worse because it’s spring training and everyone needs to talk about the acquisitions this off season, but I don’t anticipate a big drop off once the season starts. In the last week or so I’ve heard Joe Angel, Fred Manfra, Gary Thorne, Mike Flanagan, John Kruk, Karl Ravech, Jon Hart and the rest of the 30 in 30 team at MLB Network talk about it.
TWIT is going to be an every Monday thing instead of an every Saturday thing from now on. Mark your calendars sheep.
Online forums can be a great source of information, community, and headache…all at the same time. The biggest issue is that it’s difficult for almost everyone to articulate their thoughts and feelings accurately in the written word, when so much of tone, body language, and sarcasm can’t be portrayed or at the very least, is difficult. Unless they made a sarcasm font, which I’ve repeatedly appealed to Steve and Bill to do.
So clearly you have the major issues like trolls and other idiots that are the equivalent of talking to brick walls. But, there are subtle annoyances in forums that everyone knows but are likely, too afraid or apathetic to say anything about. Well, I don’t care. I’m going to say it.
Through a series of unfortunate and untimely miscommunications, misreadings, or mistakes I, Kevin Lomax, will be missing spring training this year.
I’m not going to get into all the details but suffice it to say. I’m fucking bummed out.
So while I have this bit of frustration forming a little ball in my chest, I’d like to take a minute to address something that has been brought up in recent weeks; our penchant for cussing.
