What would you name this thing?

“This thing,” of course, is the Thunder’s new mascot.  While you could certainly debate whether the team needs another mascot, that’s not the point.  The purists will hate it, but it’s actually a smart business decision.  The team can have another visible mascot when Boomer is elsewhere, and will likely increase merchandise revenue through new products featuring the new mascot.

Ahem…but as I said, that’s not the point.

The point is that you can name the mascot and win $500 worth of stuff.  For more information, head on over to

Santos to play in Orioles intersquad game

February 25, 2008

Omir Santos, the longtime Thunder backstop, will be replacing Ramon Hernandez in tomorrow’s Baltimore Orioles intersquad game.

Santos never really had a legitimate chance to make the big leagues while with the Yankees organization, and doesn’t seem to have much of a shot with Baltimore either.  In fact, he may be passed by someone you could very likely see with Bowie this season, super-prospect Matt Wieters.

TOMORROW: The first part of the All 15 Year Team positional breakdown will be unveiled, as will the special guest helping me out with it.  Also, I’ll catch up on the news from the past few days…

Breaking News: Snow In Canada

February 25, 2008

Shockingly, my trip to Canada was marred by a blizzard and cold temperatures.  Never would have seen that coming.

Anyways, I’m back from vacation and plan on catching up on some things tomorrow, so stay tuned…
