Angry Ward Thursday: Break Up the Mariners and Don’t Watch March Madness

1 Comment

NEW YORK, NY – This is getting ridiculous. Like everyone else, I’m tired of the pinch-hitting. You’ve read my repetitive garbage, not only should I not be playing both ends of a doubleheader, I should probably be posting only once a month at this point.

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – When bat last in the order, you have to be creative with what you talk about. Most major events have discussed to death, so you usually get previews and stuff that happened on Thursday or Friday. Occasionally, I scan the papers and use social media but I got lucky this […]

NEW YORK, NY – Plenty of column inches on this website have been devoted to Alex Rodriguez and his forced retirement from baseball by the Yankees this week, so I will try to keep the A-Rod talk short.

BRONX, NY – Banging this one out just before deadline on Tuesday. It’s my wife’s birthday, I’m holding off on dinner and my dog, Griffey, is doing everything in his power to get me to play fetch rather than slap together another lackluster column.

A long work week, too much Jim Beam, and a few litres (Canadian spelling) of beer at the Hofbrauhaus last night forced me to miss my deadline. The Germans strike again! Lets talk Baseball. The Yanks came from behind to beat the Canadian Bluebirds […]
