The Florida Marlins Come Through

The Marlins season is now officially over. The Marlins had a wonderful year, and despite not making it to the post season, I take pride in the fact that they exceeded everyone’s expectations and were able to come through in the very end. I’m not going to lie, I am slightly disappointed, but I look forward to coming in to my office Monday morning and seeing the looks on the faces of the handful of Mets fans.

I am not one to gloat or be boastful, but it will be a nice feeling to smile in the faces of those that tormented me everyday for 6 months for supporting my team. With each day that passed, I would sit humbly at my desk and pray that my Marlins continue to do well, as the “typical” Mets fan would walk around the office with their heads held high in arrogance. However, that didn’t start until the Mets got rid of their good for nothing manager and replaced him with Jerry Manuel, who did an excellent job as manager, but let’s not forget how poorly the Mets did at the start of the season.

To be fair, I will give the Mets credit for succeeding in possibly one of the greatest turn arounds. They worked very hard to climb back up to the top and while the team may have deserved to make it to the post season, their majority of unruly fans did not deserve that pleasure. I pity the Mets because it is a shame that a team with that much talent can still get booed for the smallest mistake at the drop of a dime. The Marlins may not have the strongest backing of fans, but I would rather have no one supporting me than a pack of wolves. And please understand, I know not all New York Mets fans behave in this way. I am just sick of people like this and this. The obnoxious troll like fans that have claimed to be “so much better” than me have now been silenced. For the genuine and sincere Mets fans, such as MetsManiacinNH, you have my sincere condolences. Better luck next year for your team and mine.

Watch Out For Logan Morrison!

I know what most of you are thinking. “Who the Hell is Logan Morrison?” You may be thinking that now, but by this time next year, Logan Morrison will probably be in the Majors and Mike Jacobs may very well be with out a job. Logan Morrison is the left handed 1st baseman for the single-A Jupiter Hammerheads. The young slugger is batting a strong .318 with 7 HR and 40 RBI. The Missouri native was named Florida State Player of the week for the week of June 9-15. Logan collected 9 hits in 15 at bats, which translates to a .600 BA. He hit one home run, four doubles, drove in 9 RBI, stole 3 bases, and scored 5 runs.
Logan stands tall at 6’2, weighs in at 215, and is merely 20 years old with an incredibly bright future ahead of him. I won’t call him the next Mickey Mantle or Babe Ruth because I don’t like to jinx people and ruin their lives, but I do believe that he will excel in his baseball career and be very successful.
Any collectors out there? Grab on to a few of this kid’s rookie cards and pay very close attention. He may just give you a run for your money!

Jeter Pull Brings The Infamous One To Tears!

Okay, not tears, but I did have this horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. The kind of feeling that you get when you find out that your significant other just slept with your sibling. That feeling of your heart sinking deep into your stomach, so far deep that it may just make you vomit. TMI? Sorry. But yeah… that feeling.
I’ll tell ya, I am really happy that Wax Breaker has this incredible luck, but I can’t help but be incredibly jealous of his pulls on 2008 UD Spectrum. Not all of them, just one. The one that REALLY counts, for me. A 2/2 Derek Jeter auto. MAN! Here comes that feeling again….
Congratulations, you lucky bastard! This card is beyond beautiful. This signature is pristine and perfectly centered on the card. RIGHT ON THE CARD. Which means my boy Jeter touched that card with his bare hands!
I just don’t know how Wax Breaker does it! What a lucky SOB! Well, like suggested, I think Wax Breaker should sell that baby. At least then I’ll have a chance at bidding on it! Well, assuming I have enough cash in the bank since I am heading over to Chicago, IL next month and just dropped $120 on Cubs tickets!
Once again, congrats and enjoy! Show Jeter some love for me?
