Why do radio stations that play Chirstmas music insist on playing the same songs by the same artists, over and over and over and over, year after year after year?  Hasn't everyone heard Feliz Navidad about 500 times in their lives already?

Scrooge out.

Attention Rick Schlesinger and Mark Attnasio:

Follow the Minnesota Twins lead. Add free Wi-Fi to all of Miller Park.  For the fans who wish to use a handheld device to keep track of other games, look up a player's stats, check their bank accounts so they can buy a few extra souvenirs - maybe even tickets to a future game, figure out where to go after the game, e-mail their friends to let them know where they'll be, post to their facebook page about the game, blog, tweet... you name it.  There are few things that would enhance the fan experience more.


A report in the New York Daily News on Monday mentions the Brewers as a possible suitor for Cliff Lee.  I'm not sure why the local media isn't picking up on this (well, actually I do know why...) or why there hasn't been more talk of it.  With Jeff Suppan and Bill Hall's salaries finally clearing the books it seems that the Brewers would be in a position financially to at least throw their hat in the ring.

I know - Jeff Suppan, Randy Wolf, Doug Davis...  Yes, free agent pitchers are risky and a lot of the big signings don't work out.  But some of them do.  No team needs a top caliber starter right now more than the Brewers.  Signing Cliff Lee would immediately make them a top contender in the NL Central.  Do they want to win or are they afraid to lose?

This turning back of the clocks sucks. For the next three months we all get to drive home from work in the dark. And for what?  So it can get light out at 6:00 in the morning?  Who cares?

Steve Garczynski on Bernie's Crew Blog:

In-Between Hops likes the choice of Bobby Valentine since he’s the Anti-Macha. A lot was made this year that 60-year-old Ken Macha was too slow and conservative for this team, so it makes sense to replace the old man with the energetic 60-year-old Valentine.
I would point out to Mr. Garczynski that Chuck Norris and Congressman Barney Frank are also the same age. Similar personalities too.  Probably wouldn't even be that much difference in how they would run a baseball team.
