How many GMs can say they snagged unknown stars like Alexei & Quentin, and starred in a movie with Han Solo?

While this Southside pessimist is still leery of putting all his eggs into the Sox playoff basket & have been hatin’ on Kenny Williams inability to snag another starting arm, nobody in the league made two more unexpected franchise altering acquisitions than the former Star Wars star.

CARLOS QUENTIN .293 35 HR 96 RBI
ALEXEI RAMIREZ .308 13 HR 51 RBI

Throw-in the confidence he had in his pitching coaches to rejuvenate the careers of John Danks & Gavin Floyd, & Kenny deserves the rose pedals that covered MENA SUVARI thrown at his feet!

As for the Olympics, while Russian Pole Vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva was remarkable in winning the gold last night, in my opinion her form will always be considered 2nd best when it comes to the Stokke’inator...

Back to baseball and Maddux’s (6-9, 3.99) move to LA...

I think people might be a little too excited on what he has left. Considering PETCO might be the most pitcher friendly-park in the majors, Dodger fan might be surprised at how Mad Dog looks when their not playing in San Diego (Home: 2.62 – Away: 5.75).

Brittney%20Skye.jpg
Only Greggy G can compare a Bear quote to cinematic star Brittney Skye...btw, her best work was JIGGLE in 2006!

As for the Quote of the Day, when Kyle Orton was asked about the O-Line problems, he responded: “I’ll take our guys over any in the league” I know he’s trying to win-over a group of vets, but that’s like Ron Jeremy telling his fans he selected BRITTNEY SKYE for the thriller More Than a Handful 13 because of her charming personality.

Alexis%20Amore.jpg
For some reason...she has me thinking Twins!

OAKLAND ATHLETICS @ MINNESOTA TWINS (-1.5 runs) (even)
I know the Twinkies were asleep for the first 7 inning yesterday...

A%27s.jpg
While she's sporting some green & yellow like the A's, the difference is she's not ranking last in some of the most important offensive catagories!

OAKLAND ATHLETICS @ MINNESOTA TWINS (-1.5 runs) (even)
I know the Twinkies were asleep for the first 7 inning yesterday before losing by one and starting-off my week on the downside, but I expect them to rebound like Jayson Williams (before he shot his limo-driver) and crush the weak-hitting A’s. Honestly, after traveling from Oakland Sunday and partying like the late-Kirby Puckett in Minneapolis after pulling an upset yesterday, I expect the Twins to jump out early on the “Season-is-Ova and Billy Beane treats us like cattle”-A’s. Former Cub Sean Gallagher hits the mound tonight, but he’s been struggling with some shoulder problems of late and is still trying to adjust to life in the American League (last 4 starts: 17 innings, 22 hits, 16 runs). Not a good combo with Oakland’s pen absolutely gassed after being shelled by Chicago this weekend and starter Justin Duchscherer leaving in the 3rd inning with an injury yesterday As for Minnesota’s pitcher, they send Kevin Slowey (3.94, 9-8), one of their hottest pitchers of late (last 4 starts: 3-1, 2.36), up against the worst hitting team in the American League…Twins by 3 to 5 runs

If I lose on the Twins again today, I'll be turning my back on those bastards...at least until tomorrow!
