Is There Room For Blogs Anymore? Did Video Blogs Take The Space?

So I’m sitting on my couch, wrapped up in a Reds Snuggie my wife made me a few years back reflecting on the progress of technology and blogging. We lost our internet yesterday and AT&T can’t be bothered till Monday to come out and look at it. Guess Sunday’s still are a day of rest. So I started my first blog in the 90’s as a tribute to watching Doogie Howser MD. It wasn’t really a blog so much than a text document written and then posted on a BBS for any of the 100 people who belonged to it … Continue reading Is There Room For Blogs Anymore?

What Goes Into A Good Man Cave or Den?

So “I have a den” when I use the words “I have” and “den” this should be preference with the fact that I also have three kids, a wife, and two dogs and the den is on the main level, has no doors and has two main through fairs that attach it to the house being the living room and the dining room. So I use the term “I have a den” loosely…. What I really should say is I have a space in the house that has a wood finish about the size of a small bedroom with bookshelves … Continue reading What Goes Into A Good Man Cave or Den?

Spring Training Games Start Today!

Ahhh Spring training games. The most wonderful and most meaningless games in professional sports. I’m at complete odds with myself when it comes to these breaking the rules when it’s conveniet games that happen in late February and early March. It’s the sign that the winter is wrapping up, baseball season is really, really close, and I can finally get my routine back that I need so very badly to get through my day. However spring training is a farce…it’s like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny It’s a marketing tool used to get some ad sales, bring baseball to … Continue reading Spring Training Games Start Today!

Builders and Modelers… WTF…

Lessons learned on the difference between builders and modelers. So I’ve been playing DFS off and on since 2015. I say off and on because the cycle up until 2019 was start the baseball season, put $100 in, lose that $100 over 3 months playing daily and quit. Then have some random luck with a sporadic games in NFL that would give me enough money that I didn’t want to abandon it so I add more to get up to $100 and play baseball again. 2019 that changed, a couple buddies made a pact to play DFS on Draft kings … Continue reading Builders and Modelers… WTF…

Spring Training Is Here!

The boys have found the field in Arizona. The media teams are hard at work so I’m not going to rehash what you can find everywhere else. Those guys and gals do a great job covering the bases. I’ll focus on the Reds for the most part, as they are the team I watch and listen to regularly. That’s not to say I won’t throw in some details from other teams. If you have something you’d like to see more of or different I’m happy to modify so feel free to get in contact with me. While I’m still working … Continue reading Spring Training Is Here!

MLB.TV Best of the Best For Now

Sounds like the beginning of a mystery or blog post that’s going to bash mlb.tv for 500+ words. In both cases it is only partially true. I have been a paying member of the mlb.tv user base since year one. I bought in when it wasn’t cool and definitely buggy. Being an early adopter to tech and a lover of baseball I could look beyond that and see what it could be and where it was already bleeding edge. There was nothing more impressive to me in those first few years than watching a quad screen of games and having … Continue reading MLB.TV Best of the Best For Now

Signing of Nick Castellanos

So there will be tons of signings, trades, moves, downgrades and so on throughout the baseball season.  I don’t want to write the same article everyone else does.  Help me out, what is something new or different you want to see? I’m going to take a stab at it, you tell me in the comments what you want to see more or less of. Summary Nick made it to the big leagues with the Detroit Tigers in 2013 for only 11 games which from the stat line can only be assumed as a break in period to get him some … Continue reading Signing of Nick Castellanos
