baby-lobster.jpgHey kids (clap clap), hey kids (clap clap).

  • WILL the Dodgers pull off an impressive four game sweep of the Phillies?

  • HOW about the Red Sox and the Rangers? Less impressive but still broomy.

  • CAN Florida salvage a split against the Cards?

  • WHY would anyone ever doubt Lobster Baby's supremacy? The entire ocean is his pillow fort.

Then stop by tomorrow for all the answers. Same WoW time, same WoW channel.

Take that Honeynut

Lobster baby is even cuter than that little Chinese girl that pretended to sing the other night. The snaggle toothed girl that actually sang that night is scarier than Zombie boy

How long will Glavine last in his return from the deeeeeel

Fort Fun Kids >>> Lobster baby >>> Zombie Little Leaguer >>> Anything Featuring Dusty Baker

No way, Honeynut. We are all powerless in the face of Lobster Baby's impossible cuteness.

Can the Rays-A's series manage to keep me up past midnight after I slept all day? Signs point to YES.

Brad Zeigler is not human.

Also, you absolutely must incorporate blankets to fortify any pillow fort.

Sleepy kitty gets no respect

And Lance Broadway: BiCurious Detective gets his second major league win over the Royals, thanks to back to back ... to back ... to back tots.

Something tells me Varitek has been unsteady at the plate for a reason

Ahhhhhhh, yes. Finally coming to terms with one's homosexuality can create slumpage at the plate.

Massive draft pick news: Posey signs.

@Rob
That's huge. SF is going to be scary good in a couple of years.

How many saves will Trevor Hoffman get before finally retiring?

When will Sheets get out of his funk (only one 1 win in all of his starts since CC came) and start picking up his end of the 1-2 punch?

I may be a Brewers fan and be upset at the loss, but still, big congrats on Trevor Hoffman's 550th save today.

what makes you think that the entire ocean is HIS fort and not HER fort?

EMPTY BENCHES IN ATLANTA

FUCK YOU LILLY

@GeorgeForeman*: G, I don't know about scary good (well, maybe in relation to the rest of the NL West), but should be an improved club.

Lobster baby's sex is still indiscriminate, so i should have used a neutral pronoun.

THE RANGERS SUCK.

Mark Kotsay hits for the cycle. First since 1987 Albert Hall, and only the 2nd Atlanta Brave to do it ever.

@phillas
That sounds about right, as far as relative to the rest of the NL West. They have good young pitching now and plenty of top-tier position player prospect who'll be ready in a year or two.

I know that, eventually, horrible franchises become powers and vice-versa. But I'm really doubting whether the Rangers will ever have decent pitching.

Cash catching now for Boston. Guess Jason is having problems behind the plate too.

The Rangers pitching has almost regressed. Their best hope is still trying to wait on Brandon McCarthy to become good. And they traded Danks and Massett for him.

SABEAN WILL TRADE ALL THE GOOD PROSPECTS TO BILLY BEANE FOR AGING VETS. BEANE WILL THEN TRADE THEM TO SOMEONE ELSE JUST AS THEY GET GOOD FOR MORE YOUNGSTERS. THEN SAID TEAM WILL SEND THEM BACK TO SABEAN AS THEY GET OLD. HE WILL THEN SIGN BARRY ZITO TO AN EXTENSION.

@matt_t: Kotsay may have had a good day at the plate, but that ball that dropped in front of him is still hilarious.

Farthammer has the circle of life pretty well established.

I think Farthammer sits atop a mountain, nestled in a yellow-and-green beanbag. He exclaims his comments to a battery of monks, who then run down the mountain and type everything at a Bay Area FedEx Kinkos.

I also fucking own both the Shift and Caps Lock keys.

Zeigler is human, by the way.

I think Farthammer is actually Carney Lansford.

In uplifting Mariners news, SI reports that the M's failed to reach waiver deals on both Ibanez and Washburn. This would mark the second time a team is willing to take that suck-ass pitcher and his ridiculous salary and the second time the M's front office whiffs. This is the worst organization in baseball.

Someone go get Geoff Baker's shoelaces.

Raul Ibanez looks like Tom Morello and is good at hitting.

Ibanez is a good hitter, but he and Tom Morello share similar zone ratings. Watching him play left, especially at Safeco, is painful/hilarious. Keeping him is defensible, since his contract runs out at the end of the season (and, considering his RBI total, he'll likely be a Type A free agent, so the M's will reap some draft pick rewards--which, by the way, they will fuck up spectacularly).

As for Washburn, he is a dreadful stiff.
