MLB 2009
« on: April 09, 2009, 04:41:03 PM »
Well....stop the presses!  Take a snapshot!  My Texas Rangers are 3-0 and in first place (probably the only time in the entire year that they will be in first place) :rofl_2:

But in other news...sad news:

Adenhart mourned; game postponed
04/09/09 2:56 PM ET

The Angels game against the A's on Thursday night at Angel Stadium has been postponed, Major League Baseball announced as Commissioner Bud Selig reacted to the death of rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart.
"Major League Baseball is in mourning today upon the news of this tragedy that has taken Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others. Nick was just 22 years of age, with a wonderful life and career ahead of him," Selig said in a statement.

"On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my sincere sympathy to the families and friends of all three victims and to the entire Angels' organization. I send my deepest condolences to Nick's parents, Jim and Janet. The hearts of everyone in baseball are with them at this most difficult time."

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said the team will gather together tonight.


MLB postponments this decade in the wake of tragedies
Adenhart was a passenger in a car that police say was struck by a motorist who ran a red light early on Thursday morning. Two other people in the car also died and another was injured. Adenhart had started for Los Angeles just a few hours earlier, pitching six shutout innings in a game the A's won, coming back from a 4-0 deficit to win, 6-4.
The A's, who open their home schedule at the Coliseum in Oakland on Friday night against the Mariners, also released this statement:

"We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of Nick Adenhart and others involved in this morning's accident. Our hearts and prayers go out to their families, as well as the entire Los Angeles Angels organization. As he demonstrated only last night, Nick was a very gifted pitcher with a promising future. For that future to be cut short is not only a loss for the Angels but for all of Major League Baseball

The guy who hit and ran had a suspended license from prior DUI offenses.  Fry the SOB! :ranting:
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

I'm with you here.  That doesn't make sense!  He never should have been behind that wheel.  Some people need to be 'fried'! :mad1:

As for the Texas Rangers, my beloved Tribe was seen bending over, grabbing their ankles, and saying "Thank you sir may I have another?"  What a beating we took!  My NL team the Pirates are off to fantastic 2-2 start  :)~.  And for them, that is no joke.

Well, now the Rangers know what your Tribe felt like because they just took one today (15-2)!  Yep, 15 runs.  Now that's more like the 'real' Texas Rangers, unfortunately! :rofl_2:

Giants are headed to 2-2 trailing SD in the 6th. So far, the Big 3 (Cy Young winners Lincecum, Johnson and Zito) are off to a 0-1 start with a ND and Zito on the hook for tonight should they not come back.  :\

Well my Rangers won all their home games so far.  Unfortunately, they've lost all the road games! :rofl_2:  Typical Rangers!
