Open Season On Pitchers


Looks like every day this spring training you’ve seen a pitcher go down for  an extended period of time or the    whole season due to injury:


The Braves   Have lost %40 of their starting rotation, As both Kris Medlan and Brandon Beachy will miss the whole season due to each having to undergo Tommy John surgery on their elbows for the second time in their careers.


Patrick Corbin of the Diamondbacks, a 2013 All Star, will also miss the season due to Tommy John Surgery., As will the A’s Jarrod Parker.


The Red’s Aroldis Chapman, he of the 105 MPH Fastball, will miss a month after needing surgery after getting hit in the face with a line drive.

Perhaps this is a hint that the human elbow is not built to throw at a high velocity.

The Sad Shape Of Things


This article about a Michigan woman who died in the back of her car and wasn’t discovered for 6 months shows how perhaps we have become an uncaring society.  Even if she had her bills auto payed, even if she traveled for her job, even if she had her mail put on hold, don’t you think one of her neighbors would have come over one day just to look and say hi, look to see if everything was OK?  None of her family didn’t care that she never called or anything?  Sad……

Farewell Katherine!





We’ll Miss you!  Your 500 years of running, and causing trouble have come to an end! It’s too bad you can’t be with Nadia on the Other Side.  The mother-daughter reunion was way to short!

More Turmoil In The World….


Do you think that the US should do anything about the Russia/Ukraine crisis? Sanctions?  Diplomatic intervention? Peacekeeping forces? Or do nothing and let the chips fall where they may?
