Maybe I’ve been drinking too much sherry on a school night, but I have a desire to ramble, and maybe some of this will have something to do with baseball. No promises, folks.
- Generally unknown Jim Ward is my latest musical musing. Check him out here at Tembloroso.
One of the biggest surprise players this year is easily Melky Cabrera. His name is funny because my girlfriend says I pronounce “milk” as “melk”. Anyway, Cabrera was ranked 369 by Yahoo! in the preseason. Before the start of Sunday’s games, he was ranked 17th on the season! He’s got a 15/16 season going so far, while hitting .312. Bet the Braves wish they had this production from him last season. One of the reasons I wanted to talk about the Melk Man was because I’ve recently tried trading him in my keeper league, and NOBODY wants him, not as a keeper, not even as a solid option for the playoff push. I guess it’s fine, I’ll ride him out the rest of the season. He’s not going to stop hitting. And he’s going to help me win a championship.
