Found July 09, 2012 on Hall of Very Good:
People complain about airlines all the time.  Matter of fact, it's hard to go to a comedy club and not hear some hackneyed bit about flying.

But for a Major Leaguer to complain about the service...and for that Major Leaguer to be Omar Vizquel?  Something must've really happened to the mild mannered infielder for him to Hulk out on Twitter Sunday night.

That, or he learned a little something something after spending two seasons in Chicago with Ozzie Guillen.

The "whole world" Omar?  Really?!?

Now, I'm not going to doubt the Toronto Blue Jays infielder as dude will fly more in the next two months than I have in my entire life...but, man, that's harsh.

My guess is that this all stems from the future Hall of Famer's love affair with marsupials.  Thoughts?


Omar Vizquel Reminds Us Why The All Star Game Is Not Watchable

I’ve been getting this feeling that most MLB players are assholes of late. Here is Omar Vizquel doing his best impression of one over the weekend: American is the worst ******* airline in the whole world — Omar Vizquel (@VizquelOmar13) July 9, 2012 No ****. Next time I will RT @meganrad: @VizquelOmar13 Take a greyhound bus. — Omar Vizquel (@VizquelOmar13) July 9, 2012 Omar...

Arencibia: 248 at bats, 31 runs scored, 56 hits, 11 doubles, 13 home runs, and 41 RBIs.  Arencibia was also named...

Injuries make pitching a priority need for Blue Jays

The obvious need for the Toronto Blue Jays going into the second phase of the season is pitching. The Blue Jays lost three starters long-term to injuries in June. Kyle Drabek is out after Tommy John surgery. Drew Hutchison did not require surgery for his elbow injury but will be out until later in the season. Brandon Morrow is the most advanced in his rehabilitation for his strained...

Quality vs. Quantity: The Blue Jays’ Draft Strategy

Ever since the new collective bargaining agreement was announced in November 2011, people speculated as to how the newly-formulated signing bonus budgets for the MLB Draft would affect draft strategy. Signability became extremely important. Teams could not afford to fail to sign a pick because it caused them to forfeit their pick and the bonus money allotted for that pick, ultimately...

Fielder's 476-foot HR lands in fountain

Check out the video. The Detroit Tigers’ Prince Fielder knocked a 476-footer right into the fountain during the Home Run Derby. It was his longest homer of the night. It was just one of Fielder’s 28 homers as he went on to beat Toronto’s Jose Bautista in the Home Run Derby finals.

Blue Jays 11, White Sox 9

Colby Rasmus hit one of four Blue Jays homers and had three RBIs to help Toronto end the Chicago White Sox's five-game winning streak with an 11-9 victory Sunday. The first-place White Sox go to the All-Star break with a 47-38 record and a three-game lead in the AL Central. Chicago manager Robin Ventura was ejected in the top of the ninth after charging to the plate to heatedly...

There was no scoring until the bottom of the fifth inning when the White Sox scored three runs to take a 3-1 lead.  First, Alexei Ramirez drove in Dayan Viciedo with a single.  Gordon Beckham...

Life, the Universe, and Everything

One of the meme's of prospect focused baseball blogs is the progression to rank more and more prospects, just to be the one who listed the most names. I'm very guilty of that, having once mentioned as many as 70 (which is at least ten times as many as will ever actually be an impact major leaguer, on average). I've always wondered what would be the ideal number to rank...
