I wasn’t really watching tonight’s Italy / Puerto Rico WBC matchup, but now I wish I had, because Nick Punto… is… awesome.

Update on Operation Troll Buster:

I unfollowed Buster Olney a long while ago but for whatever reason it was concluded that I should really re-follow and troll him/ see how long it takes to get blocked.  

His tweet- something about how well ichiro is going to do this year due to his hot spring start

Me- "you know spring stats are really helpful/ meaningful, right?"

not minutes later, him:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FP0-XWHkTdc

I can't think of a player whose injury I couldn't care less about.

So if Sellers is injured at least we can maybe see a bit more Seager at SS in games where Sellers was goin to play...

@Disgruntled Goat @Mike Petriello Damn Mike that is good. Even if you wanted to argue with it by saying Stubbs is a strikeout machine. You can't because he does prevent runs with his defense. I guess you have to keep working the whole league so your appeal as a writer grows and grows. Which I fully expect it will faster than we want it to.

@EephusBlue @SCK Global Moderator I'M TRYING TO GET BUSTER TO BLOCK ME.  I AM OFF TO A GOOD START.  HE IS (NOT) VERY THICK-SKINNED AND FELT IT NECESSARY TO RESPOND TO MY FAIRLY INNOCUOUS TWEET.  I AM NOT GOING TO REPLY TO HIS VIDEO BUT THE TONE IS SET FOR OPERATION TROLL BUSTER.
