Crownking, you're boring us. Troll harder, and troll better. Spam images, attack other board members, do something to draw clicks to the thread. There's no point in trolling if you don't go all the way with it.

Just go away, A-Rod. Nobody cares enough for you to hold a press conference.

Also, speaking of ex-Mariners, Ichiro is one hit shy of 3k.

Stanton hit one 504 feet tonight, which was really far.

 

I caught one of his BP homers today and it hurt like a :censored:.

Well, the Giants had a good run. 3 championships and, for the most part, being in contention every year is something to be proud of.

Ichiro gets his 3000th hit on a triple.  Wonder if that's ever been done before.

Cudos to Ichiro. Glad it didn't happen against the Giants though.

Manny Machado of the Orioles hit 3 home runs in the first 3 innings today.  First time that has been done since 1930.

Ichiro might make my all time baseball roster.  Not starting, yet he'd be pretty near my final list.

Between seeing Griffey's number being retired (the first in Mariners' history), Ichiro getting to 3000 hits and the M's bringing the broom to the Angels, I say it's been a good weekend.

Even better than last weekend? :D

He hit a double that didn't even make it out of the infield!

Stealing home between your teammate's legs shielding the catcher's line of sight.  It's now a thing.

After a bit of a hiatus I'm happy to announce today that I will have another series of articles coming out over the next few months through the Hardball Times relating to an ongoing project I've been working on for over two years now, the first of which I think will be of particular interest to fans of the Baltimore Orioles.

 

While the concept I'm writing about isn't anything original and has been done plenty of times before, some of the twists I have thrown in as well as the sheer depth makes this unique from anything I have found written about this subject and I'm not just referring to similar articles on Bleacher Report.

 

This wasn't a two year project in the sense that it was two years between start and finish. This is a two year project in the sense that I've spent 2-3 hours a day, 4-5 days a week working on this for the past two years. Obsessive? Perhaps, but having this work published over not just one, but what will be a series of articles for a site that is as high profile and respected in the Sabermetric community as the Hardball Times gives me a great feeling of vindication for the amount of effort I put into this.

 

Unfortunately I don't have a date yet for when the first article in the series will be released. I'm lucky if I get 48 hours of notification before its actually published myself, but it has been submitted and I've already had some back and forth banter with the editor about it. Thus far I've been consistently blown away by the quality of the questions that both he and some of the other people I've shown this to have asked and when the audience you're trying to reach is asking the type of questions you hope they would ask without guidance, that's when you know you've done your job as an author.
