Snarkless morning note

Day game today, remember. I’m headed there, as I love day games. I will not be wearing the traditional Doyle jersey as I’ll be arriving from work, though.

I wanted to point out that despite the team’s awful record, Bavasi has not handed extensions to either Ibanez or Bloomquist, which would certainly garner the team some distracting positive publicity for a news cycle. That’s good, and I hope this means both that they’re not going to get one and that he’s not going to make decisions like that where placation comes at the cost of long-term harm to the team.

Now watch, just before the game they’ll announce they’ve both been extended and I won’t find out until I arrive at the park.

    49 – Mario Kart Wii (w/ wheel) is the best game I’ve played since both Versions of Ken Griffey Junior baseball (SNES and 64).

    “I will not be wearing the traditional Doyle jersey . . .”

    OK, but you can pick up a paper bag with two eye holes for a buck on the way into the park. I’m just sayin’ . . .

    Is a daytime loss more entertaining than a night one?

    I’m not sure about snarkless, more like less snark.

    Ah ha! It just doesn’t do that on the Wii then.

    Mario Super Sluggers comes out this year. I saw the Japanese trailer this morning and it looks awesome. Chomp Chomps can come out of the outfield grass and eat the left fielder… I have dreams like that.

    So I see that Vidro is in the lineup again – not good sign.

    again on MLB 08: The Show, Hud is annoying…the M’s hit a lot of singles so you often hear from him “7 hits in the ballgame for them, all singles..someone didn’t eat their spinach…aagga(insert very baYed popeye imitation here). Yeah, there are a lot of passed balls in the game with runners on, they charge them as wild pitches though. The announcers do catch on if you make a strange move, for instance, I have used Rhodes as a pinch-hitter and have I have inserted Washburn as pinch runner, I think they say “well this moves makes you scratch your head”.
