Just as Fidel passed on the duties to governance to his brother Raul, my brother Fernando has passed on the administration of this blog to me, Roberto. (are the same first initials a coincidence? I think not!). There will be many reforms that will last for the next week. They are as follows:
Those who can afford them will now be allowed to purchase dvd players, computers, and other household electronics.
when posting links in the comments we use the following code:
< a href="">some word to click on< /a>
Note: there should be no space between the "<" and the first "a" or the "/". I had to do it that way or the text editor would automatically encode it when I posted. Between the quotation marks place the website address you are linking to, otherwise there's a good chance the web link will get cut off if you just past it directly into your comment as opposed to creating a link.
All comments must begin with a paragraph praising my glorious management of the blog. Okay, just kidding, but it should be an interesting week. My brother really is the heart and soul of this blog and you probably miss him already. I'll try my best to stick to baseball but I cannot promise a lack of digressions into politics and monkey armies that control robots with their minds.
Mussina's pitching today for the Yanks, hoping for 6 innings, no more than 3 runs allowed, and that the offense shows up.
Also, I wanted to point out that former major leaguer Doug Glanville writes a regular column for the New York Times sports section on baseball. They're pretty interesting and I'm sure if you go nytimes.com and do a search for Doug Glanville that his columns will come up. He's a good writer. Granted, he went to an ivy league university so he damn well better be a good writer. The latest one was an insider's take on baseball brawls. It was pretty interesting and I recommend it.
