My Favorite Blogger

Sometimes some things just happen in life that you just never expect. One thing I never expected was looking towards Buster Olney's blogs everyday. Don't hold it against me. I know what I've said in the past about him, but I'm willing to bury the hatchet. Fact is, his two week hiatus is starting to make me look forward to his return to blogging. While this off-season has been slow, he has had a plethora of swell information for us to read. Now we just need him back before we are forced to read more Keith Law or Peter Gammons posts.

Speaking of our "favorite" things.
How about a nice article about one of our "favorite" players to mock and make fun during the summer of 2006.
2006 4th round draftee, John Holdzkom
Thats right kids, we drafted this guy instead of Dellin Betances.

Wait, you don't want more news on the Red Sox? Gammons should be known as ESPN's Boston correspondant. Olney's okay. I used to like Stark's articles, but now that blogs the word, there are less and less.

Would love to read the Holdzkom article but I don't have a subscription. Highlights?

I'm pretty sure Holdzkom starred as Napoleon Dynamite.

Who needs Betances when you have a guy named Holdzkum? Really, that is a necessity in any franchise.

Holdzkum did in fact start as Napoleon Dynamite...very little know fact and tasty tidbit.

Buster Olney? Bah! Did Buster ever make a banner for your blog?


Rob Neyer is a Red Sox lover too. It's because Theo is a stat head.

Sorry...no he didn't and that wasn't to slight any of our very own Mets bloggers, which is the best community of bloggers out of all the big league teams and maybe all of sports...but I was just merely stating that I now miss my once mortal enemy.

I think we can all agree that Wallace Matthews has supplanted everyone else in the media as our mortal enemy. Except maybe for Steve Phillips, if you can consider him a member of the media.

I consider Wallace Mathews more of a comedy act. The guy is outrageous, I don't even hate him or the things he says, I just consider it funny and laugh.

And how about we get some HoF talk in here?
Ripkin? in.
Gwynn? in.
McGwire? damn, who knows. To me I like to go by dominance and he did dominante... for a long time, but was he too one-dimensional?
I could care less about his embarassing congress hearing or the steroids "rumors".
And can Goose Gossage get in? please? I don't like talking about these older players because not only did I NOT see them play but I wasn't even alive when these guys played but when I look at Gossage's stats I see dominance.

Phillips is definitely not part of the media. I'm just hoping he gets another job. That would be entertainment.

Hmm...HoF talk...

I guess I can do a post about that one after we go over the prospects tomorrow...

Phillips is what we call a "personality" these days. Kind of like the Paris Hilton of baseball, thankfully without the sex tape...

I watched John Holdzkum knock someone's teeth out with the sole of his snakeskin boot!

(Okay, I didn't but it sounded good...)

Wallace Matthews is one scary looking dude. He should have been a reliever in the '70's with that bad ass stache! Course, maybe the problem is that he wasn't.

For whatever reason, Tyler Kepner gives me the willies. He's not offensive, but he just does. He used to cover the Mets right? I just don't like this bi sportwriting. That's like the ultimate sports treason.

Benny, you get me scared man! I was like three years old when I heard John Boccabella introduced to bat at Olympic Stadium, and I still cannot get the name out of my head. Gossage retired in 1994. You're not 12. Right?
