Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
My previews for today's ALDS Games 2 are up on SI.com. Two lefty starters give the Rays-Chisox series a different look, while Daisuke Matsuzaka's stellar record belies his unimpressive pitching.
going to torture myself by watching the Sox beat the Angels in Game 2 this morning..hope someone is around the Banter to offer some consolation?
wow, pale hose getting squeezed by cb bucknor in the late innings.
i'd kinda like to see chicago beat the rays - we'd be in the playoffs if it weren't for tampa's exceptional year - but i think the devil fishes at least have a slightly better chance at beating the shit sox in the LCS...
amazingly, the Rays game is not on tv here this morning..Sox-LA in an hour though
did i tell you his son - grant green, jr - lives here in Atlanta now. sometimes he plays w/ the guy who bestowed the stage name "thelarmis" upon me. GG, Jr. came to a jazz gig of mine a few months back and had nice things to say about us (and our young, hotshot electric guitarist)... : )
i have a cool black/white photo of grant green hanging up at my studio - from a blue note calendar. it just dawned on me - i don't think i own Idle Moments. damn!
later on tonight, i'll finish up a cool book on Hank Mobley. grant green is mentioned a few times throughout the read...
so, i'm home sick. listening to music, w/ the game on mute...
"Idle Moments" by GG one of my top ten individual tunes ever, just sublime! you got to get it!!
yeah man, i need Idle Moments and a coupla Johnny Griffin blue note titles. i have sooo many damn cd's, it's hard to keep track of what i have and what i need. i used to have everything organized alphabetically & chronologically, but my collection has gotten pretty massive and i've run outta room. the only genre i keep track of with an online list, is my metal stuff...
oh, and WTF is up with the Cubs???!!
i really don't think I can take the Sox winning again this year...
