The Impossible?

I am simply amazed by what this guy has done. To see every possible baseball match up, home and away is just unreal! Congratulations to John Salvo and his accomplishments. I wish he was on this site to share his stories. See link below...

Been meaning to post this for a while. I got an email from Chuck that said he wanted to make a few changes to the schedule cause he hates having a day of vacation where he doesn't get to see a game/ball park and I fully agree! So below is our new schedule and a few stats about it...

Family's 30 MLB Ballpark tour benefits the Women’s Sports Foundation's GoGirlGo! Program



Family's 30 MLB Ballpark tour benefits the Women’s Sports Foundation's GoGirlGo! Program




Roberto Coquis and Judy Pino visited all 30 MLB ballparks this summer with 8-month old baby, Sofia Coquis, in tow. They dubbed their tour "30 Ballparks and a Baby" and created a website documenting their experiences. During the tour they collected baseball memorabilia from MLB teams and supporters to be auctioned off for charity and have partnered with the Women's Sports Foundation's… Continue

My Trip to ALCS Game #4

The Big A, a sea of red, rally monkey dolls, thundersticks, a monument to Nick Adenhart, bad umpiring calls, footlong italian sausages, Sabathia's strong 8 innings on 3 days rest, and more. We went to last night's ALCS game and it totally rocked! There were so many of us NY fans throughout the stadium, cheering on Jeter and the boys. The best was seeing most of the depressed Anaheim fans with their annoying thundersticks leave in the 7th inning when the score was 5-1. No rally monkey sightings… Continue

Just because I am a Yankees fan

Doesnt mean that I agree with how the economics of baseball are way out of whack. I was talking with a few other Canadians about the MLB and thought of a radical new change in division re-alignment that may finally end the disparity between all ball clubs having a chance to make the playoffs each year. Much like soccer it would kind of be a tier system. Scheduling and travel wise it makes a lot more sense. For those hardcore fans I would also make each team play at least 2 games against every… Continue

I decided to forego the doubleheaders scenario for now to concentrate on the streaks. I will also save the pre-streak writing for the actual novel itself.. Let us get right to the streak chasing because it has the juiciest content by far....

Adventures in the Astrodome -- a sneak peek into the fabled yard

The Eighth Wonder of the World still stands, though it has seen better days.



The Astros moved downtown and the Texans football team have massive Reliant Stadium, which towers over the first-ever domed stadium.



There’s a lot of Mets history in that dome, including what one author called “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” Game 6 of the 1986 National League playoffs.



So I figured I’d head over and just walk around the outside, taking some photos. The Texans wanted $8… Continue

Silly Metrodome Similies

The dome is like your girlfriend's cat, it's really scratchy but it you have to deal with it.





The dome is like your favorite brand of beer - it tastes great but no one else will even try it.





The dome is like Tim Pawlenty - full of hot air and totally out of work in 2012.





The dome is like your old couch - had some great effing times but now it smells.





The dome is like Kevin Costner - really horrible but associated with baseball… Continue

Playoff predictions

Time to go on the record with my playoff predictions. I'm kind of rooting for a Dodgers-Angels freeway series but I think we're heading for a Yankees-Cards W.S. and I'm not a fan of either of these teams.

NLDS
Cards over Dodgers in 4
Phillies over Rockies in 5

ALDS
Yankees over Twins in 4
Angels over Red Sox in 5

Cards over Phillies in 7
Yankees over Angels 7

Yankees over Cards in 6

DOUBLE HEADER SCENARIOS FOR BOS, NYY, TB AND BAL CHAPTER 3 CONT'D

REMEMBER THESE ARE BASED MOSTLY ON SEEING EVERY PITCH-BUT I HAVE ADDED SOME CLOSE CALLS THAT THOSE NOT LOOKING TO SEE EVERY PITCH BUT KNOCK OFF A STADIUM 2 TIMES PER DAY CAN DO. THESE ARE DOUBLEHEADER POSSIBILITIES I HAVE RESEARCHED. SMALLER AIRPORTS IN A FEW OF THESE DOUBLEHEADERS ARE GOOD BECAUSE SECURITY IS QUICKER IN TINY AIRPORTS WITH ONE OR TWO JETWAYS!!



BOSTON DOUBLE HEADERS PARTNERS ARE: NEW YORK YANKS, METS, BALT, PHILLY



SUNDAY

NIGHT GM

BOSTON 1:05… Continue
