My new blog



I feel like there's some sort of unfair business practice action sprouting here against you, NTC. Using a blogspot blog to advertise your new wordpress blog; it seems like blogger would frown on actions like that. All kidding aside, was there some sort of non-competition click-wrap clause/contract you had to sign to become a Blogspot writer? I can't remember doing one myself but it wouldn't surprise me if one existed.


Oh also, I enjoy your site. Especially the part where you posted and wrote about stuff and things. You know that part? It was the best.

Dustin Pedoia won the AL MVP. Total BS [screw you, Eric]. How on earth did he win out over Quentin or Hamilton? I don't like. I don't agree with it. GOD! 16 first place votes! There were 16 people who thought Dustin Pedroia was the best, most valuable player in the majors?
What really grinds my gears is this AL MVP contrasted with 2006. If Jeter didn't win in '06 then Pedroia should not have won this season. I know you people will defend Pedroia but the whole in my heart has been made just that much bigger.


I was just talking about this with my roommate. The Boston bias in this league is unbelievable. Dustin Effing Pedroia? Are you kidding me? By what criteria did they decide this one? Gutsy-ness? Heart? He who most looks like a squirrel?? Let's look at the real numbers:


OBP (min 200 plate appearances):

PMLVr (min 200 PAs):

How does A-Rod or Tex not win this? A-Rod because his horrible team didn't make the playoffs? Tex because...?

Wednesday Night, 'round 9pm

I would just like to point out that, at this very moment (a few minutes before 9pm on a Wednesday night) I am simultaneously engaged in a text-conversation with Rob about soft and hard legal positivism, natural law legal theory versus natural law moral theory and the differences between Thomistic legal theory, Dworkin's jurisprudence and HLA Hart's positivism AND an email conversation with EJB about the inelasticity of income demand of beer.

Does this make me a cool person or THE coolest person?
I leave that to you.
