On The Bright Side…

I am a Red’s fan. Ryan is a Giants fan. We obviously want those two teams to win the World Series. If not the Reds then I hope the Giants win. If not the Giants he better hope the Reds win. If neither of these teams win, well someone else will. And of course on one level that will suck. But more than a Reds fan, I’m a baseball fan and here are some positives that would come from each of the other teams winning it all.

I’m putting these in the order I’d like them to win (following of course the Reds and Giants.)

Jason Heyward’s First At-Bat in Perspective

Jason Heyward made his anticipated Major League debut today and he hit a home-run in his first Major League at-bat. That’s really exciting for Atlants Braves fans. However, to keep things in perspective I compiled this list of St. Louis Cardinals Pitchers who hit a home run in their first major league at-bat, since the year 2001.

Mark Worrell 06-05-2008
Adam Wainwright 05-24-2006

UPDATED: NRI List

Just a quick note. I made some major updates to the consolidated non-roster invitee list. These updates primarily involved the Colorado Rockies, San Diego Padres, New York Yankees, New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Rays.

I hate the fact this “quick note” will get a Yankees tag, which will cause it to increase in size and might draw your attention to the fact that amidst my complaining of the media focusing too heavily on Boston and New York, I too write about them disproportionately.

And to make this more interesting. A video.

2010 Consolidated List of Non-roster Invitees

Below you’ll find a comprehensive list of the 2010 MLB Spring Training Non-roster invitees for all Major League teams, as of February 8, 2010. This information is easy to obtain, but not as easy to compile and format, into one master list so I ask that if you want to take the entire list for whatever purpose you at least cite your source. I’ll cite mine. MLB.com To make things more interesting I also add links to unofficial team blogs for each of the Major League baseball teams and on some players I added links to random blogs pertaining to the player.

Eric Lands a White Whale

I won my first “true” 1/1 on eBay yesterday. The card is a 2008 Topps Triple Threads Josh Anderson with an autograph, 2 games used jersey swatches and a patch piece. Serial numbered 1/1 of course. I just recently started my Josh Anderson PC and it has been growing pretty quickly. I haven’t found a lot of competition and was surprised that I was forced to pay $32 for this card. (more…)
