The almost last thing you will hear about the Pants Party

Here's where we stand, right now:

I announced we were having a party.

I tried to convince you to go with a list of the five people you'll meet at the party. It was kind of funny.

Then I tried to convince you with our excellent menu. This sort of worked.

I convinced my friend Larry of Wezen Ball to write a guest post for the party. He called it "What's So Great About the First Inning?" and it was really good.

Surprisingly, KLSnow of Brew Crew Ball took it upon himself to invite you to the party in the Frosty Mug. That was cool.

Then, for some reason in a greater surprise, Carson Cistulli of Fangraphs did the same. That was weird, but cool.

Finally, I had Tyler Maas do another guest post today about why you should attend. It was classic Tyler, good too.

Which brings us to now. I've only got a few tickets left and I can't think of anything else to say to convince you to go. We have beer. We have food. We have really cool people to talk to. We have math nerds to pick on. It's going to be a nice day (you hear that God? It's going to be a nice day motherf@*#$r!) and Sundays at Miller Park are the best. It's got a decent price and it's a bobblehead game. That's all there really is to it. I don't know what else to say about it that hasn't already been said.

I'm going to leave this link up for tonight and the rest of the weekend and I sincerely hope you buy a ticket. Not because I want to make money off of this (I'm putting every dime we make right back into the party. More money=more food, beer and prizes), but because I want you to have a good time. This blog has been one of the best things in my life for over a year now (right behind alcohol and hentai porn) and I want to give back to the people who like it. That's it. I want to party with you and if you do we are going to have a good time, even if it kills me (and by me, I mean my liver).

If we sell all our tickets, great. If we sell more than we have, we'll get more and that will also be great. If we don't sell any more, that's fine too. The people who come will have a tailgate to remember. They will love it. If you like this site, you should really consider coming to this event because it's going to rock. If you miss it, you will regret it later. Trust me. I've been wrong about a lot of things on this site (for instance I traded Corey Hart a month ago), but on this one I know that I'm right. We're going to have a lot of fun. Join us.

Have a good weekend.

Yovani Gallardo is bonafide

Yesterday Yovani Gallardo pitched in what was probably his 2nd or 3rd worst start of the season for the Milwaukee Brewers. Which is funny because I never for one second thought that the game was in doubt. When Yovani hits homeruns, the Brewers win. It's just that easy, but it's more than that too. When Yovani gets the ball, we expect to win. Something is happening here. Something amazing and every time Yovani Gallardo takes the mound for the Brewers is becoming must see TV. He is the Seinfeld of the Brewers TV lineup. (Randy Wolf? The Marriage Ref.)

How good has Yovani been? Well, including yesterday's start he's been the fourth most valuable player in the National League according to WAR (Wins Above Replacement). Not pitcher, player. Think about that for a second. All season long we have heard and talked about Hart's power surge or Casey McGehee's continued success at the plate, but we haven't heard much about Yovani Gallardo. He's not only been the team's ace, but he's been the team's MVP and put himself in the conversation for best pitcher in the National League. Seriously. Thus far this season Yovani has been better than Johan Santana, Roy Halladay (not by much, but still), Tim Hudson, Roy Oswalt, Tim Lincecum, Adam Wainwright and Chris Carpenter. This is really happening.

And to think just under two months ago Anthony Witrado said this about him: Continue reading →
