Here are my thoughts on this issue

Friday, February 20th, 2004

Recently, The Clark & Addison Chronicle posted a “Comprehensive” Cub’s blog reaction to the Greg Maddux signing. It has sparked some controversy due to the absence of Rob’s (aka The Uncouth Sloth) opinion. This absence has sparked a big argument by the readers of the Cub’s Blog Army and I would like to weigh in on my opinions.

First, I link to a lot of people on my site. Some of them write a Cub’s Blog, some write about other teams, and some links are for good sites. Because this is MY site, I have chosen what sites I would like to link to. I have looked at all these sites and of course I have my favorites. I personally really enjoy reading The Big Red C, Forklift, & The Northside Lounge. None of these writers have asked me to link to them. I have chosen to. When I first started writing my site, I wanted to get my opinions out to as many readers as possible so I went out and asked as many writers as possible if they could link to my site. Because it was THEIR site, THEY could make the decision whether or not they wanted to. I try to maintain and link to sites that are interesting and who’s writers write fairly often.

Sloth is very upset at the fact that Jason does not link to his site. I sympathize with the sloth in the sense that it hurts when your opinion is not represented. Everyone likes to be heard. However, because Jason does not enjoy reading obscene language, he has chosen not to link to the sloth. Now this does not mean that Rob never has good things to say. It simply means that because of the cursing, Jason does not want to send his readers there. In my opinion, a good writer is someone who does not need to curse in their posts/articles. I look at great media people and they are not allowed to use those words to get their anger across. To me, as a blog writer, I feel like we are media people as well. Even though we are not paid and not widely known, because we are still on the internet we qualify as media. I am not saying that Sloth can’t swear in his posts, that is fine because it is HIS blog. But if someone who does not appreciate that language chooses not to link to you, it does not mean they don’t care what you have to say. It simply means they do not like the way you say it. Tell me what you think.

Also, I am still taking names for Fantasy Keeper baseball. Leave a comment with your e-mail if you’re interested!!!!!

The Evil Empire Strikes Back

Monday, February 16th, 2004

Pretty cheesy title huh? But I just couldn’t resist. As you have all heard by now, the Yankees have traded Soriano and a player to be named later for A-Rod. What a way to stick it to the Red Sox. I got a kick out of The Bambino’s Curse’s take on it. I don’t really care that much about this trade. A-Rod is awesome, but Soriano is no slouch himself. This leaves the Yankees with a hole at 2nd base. Maybe they would like to take Mark Grudzielanek off our hands. That sure would be nice because I am not looking forward to him and Walker splitting time. I really hope that is not what Dusty has in mind. Give one guy the job and let the other guy be a bench guy. Anyways, sorry about the lack of posts but like I have said before, I have just not had the time. I am working hard to get a second Head to Head Keeper league going for Baseball on yahoo. I have 8 people for the second league so I am looking for like 4 more. If you are interested, please leave me a comment on my site. For those of you who are already in, as soon as Yahoo opens the registration, our leagues will be registered and I will be sending out invitation e-mails. Until then, keep being patient and hope for Maddux.

Still Taking Names

Monday, February 16th, 2004

I have enough people signed up for a full 12 team fantasy Keeper Leage. I have since them gotten 2 more requests to join. So, I am still taking sign ups for people who are interested in a league. I will hopefully get 2 leagues going instead of one due to the demand. So, right now I have 4 teams in the second league. Sign up if you’re interested ASAP!!!!

Fantasy Baseball

Saturday, February 7th, 2004

The season is quickly approaching. I have 6 people already interested in doing a fantasy baseball head to head keeper league. If you are interested and you are reading this, do one of two things. 1) Leave your name and e-mail address in the comment section and you will receive an invite when the league opens. (It’s a free league on yahoo.) 2) E-mail me at jeavlc101100@yahoo.com for more information on the league. I want 12 teams total and we have 7 so far. So, sign up now so we can set a draft time and date.
