Walk Off Walk asks the questions: Why haven't baseball players been invited to be on Dancing with the Stars? It's an interesting question seeing as how this season has Steve-O, Steve Jobs' sidekick (also known as Kathy Griffin's rich ex) and famous coke addict Lawrence Taylor. They could clearly use some fresh meat. So, why not baseball players? Famous people don't get anymore well spoken and elegant than Cal Ripken Jr, Robin Yount and Tony Gwynn. These guys would be a ratings bonanza.
Yet, Robin Yount isn't the Brewer I would most like to see on the show. Nor is he the baseball player I think could do more for this show in the long run. No, that player is.... well, do you really even have to ask?
But why stop at Dancing with the Stars? Why not get Gorman on every reality show? The Amazing Race, Survivor, Cheaters, Denise Richards: It's Complicated, The Principal's Office, everything. I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that Gorman Thomas would improve every single reality show on television. In fact, I will go so far as to say that he may be reality TV's only hope.
Make it happen ABC.

Who are the ad wizards that came up with this one?
As you should know by now, Eric Gagne was released by the Brewers this weekend and may miss the entire 20o9 season. In honor of this momentous moment in Brewers history (somewhere between the 82 World Series and Jeffrey Hammonds) we present to you....
Eric Gagne: A Photo Tribute
(Feel free to put on whatever semi-depressing song you like while reading this. We recommend Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb.) Read the rest of this entry »
TV on the Radio - Wolf Like Me
This song is awesome and it's awesomeness is only enhanced more by drinking. Therefore it should be perfect for games, but here's the thing: sometimes when I listen to this song I want to start a mosh pit with the nearest inanimate object I can find. Maybe even smash my head through a car's windshield (in a good way). Is that a good way to feel like in a parking lot of 30,000 people? Probably not.
Handle with care.
Cubs games now on Oxygen: I am not really sure what Micah Hoffpauir is doing nor do I want to.
Anthony Witrado continues to enjoy learning to write: Those plays are commonplace for Escobar, maybe the most exciting minor-league shortstop in the game, maybe the organization's most major-league-ready prospect, maybe the heir to J.J. Hardy's throne.
All Eric Gagne is dust in the wind: We'll miss you. We wanted to make fun of you more.
Do they even have birthdays in Latin America?: Vlad Guerrero is a year older, just like every other Latin American baseball player of all time.
Arroyo is no Viking: Bronson Arroyo throws a boat party with Pedro.
Maybe if you talk louder he will understand: Woman gets pissed at Jose Reyes for speaking Spanish. Personally, I'd be pissed about the whole "blowing it two years in a row" thing instead of the Spanish.
