    I'm sorry I don't have a link, but it was all over Twitter tonight, so...

    Hall of Famer Stan "The Man" Musial has passed away according to several sources. Including Jays Sportsnet host Jamie Campbell, so he would know about stuff happening in Baseball.

    My condolences to his fans, friends and Family. Rest in Peace Sir. :(

    One of the greatest Orioles managers of all time, Earl Weaver, also passed away this weekend. Ironically, he died the day before the Orioles hosted their annual Fanfest celebration (died Friday and the celebration was yesterday) so fans got a bit of a shock if they attended the event and didn't check social media or the news before they got there. Definitely one of the sadder weekends in the baseball world. RIP Mr. Weaver and RIP Mr. Musial. :(

    Oh, I hadn't heard that we lost Earl this weekend too. Thanks for letting us know Heather, as w/Cdns, NHL, the Aussie Open and NFL Playoffs all being on this weekend, I haven't seen a newscast since 6pm EST Friday night.

    Sigh...Nobody and I mean *nobody* could get into the face of an Ump for an argument like Earl Weaver could and did on several occasions. :) He will be missed and may he Rest In Peace. :(

    RIP Mr. Musial. My father was a die-hard Tigers fan but the ballplayer he spoke of with the most respect was Stan Musial. I had the pleasure of working with his nephew years ago when he was a student where I am employed.

    Giants pitchers and catchers report on Tuesday. :cheer2:

    eta: The Tigers would do better to sign some hotties. I noticed a distinct lack of hottness, which probably contributed to their poor showing in the World Series.

    WTF? She started dating him when he had long hair.

    Now he looks 12. That's not hot.

    The other word is that the Giants brass really like the influence this girl has on Timmy, no more In-n-Out animal style burgers by the bucket full for him!

    Maybe she got him to realize this isn't 1993? Or perhaps he got tired of people mistaking him as Shaggy from "Scooby Doo?" :p

    He did not look good with long hair; it looked stringy and was unflattering.

    After looking at recent pics, I think the problem isn't that it's short, just that it's not a very good haircut.

    When he was all sweaty, yes it was stringy. When he wasn't playing, it was :smokin:

    So I'm talking to myself in here. All righty then. :p

    The Giants have had three ties in spring training so far. Ties just seem so wrong in baseball.

    Happy: I'm going to two Giants spring training games over Spring Break. One of them I will be sitting in the front row. :cheer2:

    :wuzrobbed : Obviously, the Beard won't be there.

    I've been sick all week and my younger Reds players keep giving up leads and wins for my Reds so I haven't felt like posting too much. The regular starters are all looking pretty strong so far though and all the pitchers who should make the team this spring are looking good too. Those youngsters are the ones who need some work. ;)

    Joey Votto won the MLB Network Face of Baseball competition yesterday!!!! :D Reds fans might be a little insane and totally took over Twitter for the last few weeks but that's all right. I'll be insane for Joey! :swoon: I loved his answer when someone asked him what he got for winning this title, "I got to do a TV interview." LMAO :rofl: :lol:

    The Angels finally played their starters and kicked around the Dodgers yesterday.

    I'm still afraid of the new pitchers.

    I'm happy anytime the Dodgers get kicked around. :)

    I'm in Scottsdale. I caught a Giants/Mariners game yesterday, and today I saw the Giants play the Brewers.

    It ended in a 0-0 tie. After ten innings. :rolleyes:

    At least, I think it counts, even though Houston is kind of a AAA team these days...

    On my way to the Twins game!

    29 degrees, sunny, wind chill is 19 in Minneapolis today :cheer: And I can't wait!

    Hoping we can somehow score a runs vs. Verlander, we'll need them, with our pitching staff.
