Adding New Meaning to Titmouse

Very interesting...

A complete, functioning breast has been grown from a single stem cell, by researchers in Australia. It was done in a mouse, but experts believe it won't be long before it happens in humans.

  • Quote machine David Wright:

    "My biggest thing is I want to experience playoff baseball in New York," Wright told The Post after a workout at the Mets' spring-training complex. "I want to experience playing in October. That's what's pushed me this off-season. Playing in October is something I want to experience year in and year out."

    Swell. Fucking swell. I hope there is October baseball for the Mets too so I can finally get to by some playoffs ticket as an added benefit of my season package. So far, it has yielded nothing but me drinking more and more beer at the games as the season progresses.

    "Our bullpen is second to none," said Wright, who batted .306 last year with 27 home runs and 102 RBIs. He pointed to the additions of Jorge Julio and Duaner Sanchez ("He's filthy," Wright gushed) that will shorten the game and make life easier for Pedro Martinez and Tom Glavine. "We have a couple of legitimate closers who are going to pitch the seventh and eighth innings and obviously if you get to the ninth inning, it's game over with Billy Wagner pitching.

    Umm...not so much. I'm pretty sure the Mets bullpen is second to quite a few. They may be good, but they are far from a sure thing. This may be a case of trying to tap into the power of positive thinking.

  • The Angels have put a deadline on Jeff Weaver.

    still on the clock
    Feb 14 - The Angels continue to have a deadline for Wednesday for free-agent right-hander Jeff Weaver to accept their contract offer.

    According to a report in the Los Angeles Daily News, the Angels have increased their offer to Weaver to a one-year deal with an option for a second year. The newspaper speculates the pitcher likely will command about $9 million per season.

    If Weaver joins the Angels he will become part of a starting rotation that already includes Bartolo Colon, John Lackey, Ervin Santana and Kelvim Escobar.


    You would think the Angels are sick of dealing with the combination of Boras and any Weaver. Weaver has seemingly no options and he is being offered a pretty good amount of dollars per year for his production.

  • The saga continues with the player that most exemplifies the meaning of teammate.

    Alfonso Soriano remains adamant about playing second base for the Nationals and remains opposed to moving to the outfield. The Nationals hope he changes his mind, Florida Today reports.

    "If [Jose] Vidro is healthy, Vidro is our second baseman," GM Jim Bowden told the newspaper. "Jose Vidro is not a player that has other places he can play and be as effective as he is at second, where we feel that Soriano is so talented that he could move to either center or left field and really help our team. ... We hope at some point that he agrees to play the outfield, because that's how our team is going to be best-structured."


    I cannot wait until Alfonso blows this up.

  • No Mets made the Baseball America Winter All-Stars, but Anderson Hernandez did get a special mention of sorts.

    Angels' shortstop Brandon Wood might have set an Arizona Fall League record with 14 homers, but Pirates utility man Yurendell De Caster came within two home runs shy of the Venezuelan League mark. While it was close between the two players--not to mention the postseason heroics of Mets' infielder Anderson Hernandez and the numbers White Sox outfielder Jerry Owens put up--De Caster is our Winter Player of the Year based on his numbers, as well as the level of competition he played against in the Venezuelan League.

    Will he take Kaz's spot in the Spring? Am I the only guy still pulling for Kaz?

    i think its great that they chose to grow a breast. if i had the option to grow any human body part on a mouse, i too would choose the female breast. I can see how this happend:

    scientist 1: should we grow a nose or an ear?

    scientist 2: what about a boob?
