HAHA on MLB.com front page, the headline is:

"Star Wars, Episode 76: Revenge of the NL?"

Possibly the dumbest tagline ever conceived?  I think so :lol:

The best way to get columns,is to use the CODE option. It uses mono spaced text, meaning you need to convert all tabs to spaces., like this:
Code: [Select]
        Column 1  Column 2  Column 3  Column 4  Column 5
Line 1     blah      blah      blah      blah      blah
Line 2     blah      blah      blah      blah      blah
Line 3     blah      blah      blah      blah      blah
Line 4     blah      blah      blah      blah      blah
Line 5     blah      blah      blah      blah      blah
Line 6     blah      blah      blah      blah      blah
You first create the mono spaced text, past it in here, then highlight the entire block of text and click on the Code button

Wow did anyone see Tejada just smoke that second pitch off of Smoltz?  That thing was so high and so deep it looked like some of the homers from last night's derby  :shock:

that ball was mashed...

for all the criticism heaped upon O's management, they do deserve major props for signing Tejada. Not only is he one of the 5 or 6 best players ability-wise, he is a winner and a leader.

LOL I know there are plenty of reasons and excuses, but watching an "All-Star" 1st baseman let a pickoff attempt get away from him just makes me laugh.  Even supermen make rookie mistakes.

I used to love Vlad Guerrero, but now after the whole Anaheim thing I just feel like he's a sellout.  Too bad he couldn't have been a part of DC with the rest of the old-timers :(

Quite simply, Tejada is the most valuable player in baseball from any league.  When you look at what he brings in term of offense, amazing defense, and truly remarkable leadership, the fact that (even still) he's only hovering on the cusp "top tier" of superstars in terms of popular recognition is a travesty.

2-run homer off of Willis, 7-0 AL.  Looks like it's gonna be another blowout.

Excellent job indeed.  

How can you not like this guy?  After reading those twin profiles of Chief in the WaPo and the WaTimes, it's obvious he's living The Baseball Dream right now: in his second year he's become the game's most dominant closer, he has a shot at the all-time save record this season, he's pitching in the All-Star Game...and he's still a goofy, happy-go-lucky kid. (I swear to god he looks like a Peanuts character on the sandlot with his hat down on his head like that.)

7-5, two out, bottom of the ninth.  Rivera coming in.  No way we pull this off.

     This mornings paper says that Evans laughed when Selig predicted that an owner would be selected by August.
