Twitter!

I have a Twitter! Follow me: stephamie. I tweet about baseball sometimes (alienating most of my followers/friends). I’ll probably live-tweet whatever game I’m watching. I follow mostly comedians but there is some good baseball talk on there, too.

If you tweet here are some of my recommendations:

Onto more TV woes. Apparently I have access to SportSouth (Braves) and FSNAZ (Diamondbacks). My cable network loves to tease.

I watched as the Braves lost that 7-run lead to the Phillies in probably the worst way possible. I saw the whole thing happen in one inning and kind of wish I hadn’t. It hurt my Phillies-loathin’ heart to see the Braves’ bullpen fall apart like that. One walk at a time. Ouch.

Here is a photo of BFF activity between Manny and Ethier from Opening Day at Petco Park (from Dodgers.com).

I love the hiptag. Jump and bump. I don’t know what it’s really called but it’s adorable.

manny/wtf/walk-off HR? REALLY??

manny. i haven’t said anything about the manny thing until now because… well, i barely knew anything about the dude. all i knew was that he seemed “silly” (bad) and i wanted nothing to do with him.

but i’m pretty into it right now. i’m glad we got him for next to nothing. laroche, if you couldn’t already tell, i’m fine without. he and his brother can now revel together in being announced as “the laroche brothers.”

if they had traded away one of
my dudes i would’ve been livid. i probably would’ve deleted this blog and thrown out the cable
box. anyway, for what he’s contributing to the team he doesn’t seem so silly anymore. silly looking, maybe, yes.

the media sure got a little creepy with the whole “many mania”/”manny-wood”/”manny being manny” thing.

ethier. 😦

wtf. i don’t want to play these teams!? cardinals (63-52)? phillies (61-51)?? brewers (63-51)?? while the d-backs sit pretty and play the pirates (51-62)? braves (52-61)? astros (54-58)?

finally. how ’bout andruw’s homer? that was weird!

and how are you gonna bring in johnson instead of kuo??????????????

WALK-OFF HOMER.

WHY.
