Man I Miss These Guys…

If there is 1 thing I have remained consistent with since my youth it’s checking the box scores on a daily basis.  Even with them being accessible in a more timely manner via the Internet and other digital media, I still prefer the good old newspaper.

As a kid I learned how to read the box scores so I could follow Wade Boggs as I considered him to be the best hitter in the game in the 1980’s.  And now some 20+ years later I still love reading the box scores on a daily basis but now I find that my emphasis has leaned towards following former Florida Marlins players still active around the league.

I thought it would be fun to build my own team made up of former Marlins players that are sill playing in the big leagues.  Here we go:

1st Base – Derrek Lee

2nd Base – Luis Castillo

3rd Base – Mike Lowell

 

Shortstop – Edgar Rentaria

 

Center Field – Juan Pierre

 

Left Field – Gary Sheffield

Right Field – Josh Willingham

 

Catcher – Pudge Rodriguez

 

Starting Pitcher – Josh Beckett

 

Relief Pitcher – Trevor Hoffman

 

Man, the Marlins have let go of some amazingly talented guys over the years huh???

Enough Already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fine.  Most of us expected this.  But, the New York Post has gone too far.

How did someone get approval to make this headline and have it get distributed???  There are way too many kids seeing this and it’s not right.  Call him anything you want in private, use all of the clever steroid related nicknames you can find, but The New York Post should be reprimanded and someone should lose their job for publishing this.

I am all for freedom of speech but where is the line drawn??  Why does this newspaper not have a parental advisory sticker on it?  Album covers, classic literature, and film get censored constantly.  Who gave the New York Post a free pass???

Think I’m overreacting?  Have a child call you an ‘A-Hole’ and then tell you that he saw it on the cover of ‘The Post’….    It’s no different than him/her dropping an ‘F-Bomb’ and saying that he heard it on his IPod.
