So I’ve been providing some photos to a graphic designer in order to get some wallpapers and other various graphics for your enjoyment on here.

Josh Verb is his name, and you can check out his work here or download the initial Mark Melancon graphic here.

Keep an eye out for future downloads, and if you have any specific player requests, be sure to let Josh or myself know.

So a few people have e-mailed asking about my opinion on the whole A-Rod thing.

And really, outside of that very brief possibility of him rehabbing with the Thunder last season, there really isn’t too much I can say that would make it relevant to Trenton.

I will say that I think it’s sad that arguably the biggest name in baseball has been outed as a cheater.  Despite any “well, everyone else was doing it too” argument you may hear, that’s exactly what doing steroids is…cheating.

I don’t believe that he seems to have no idea of exactly what he took, and didn’t like the way he danced around where he got it.  And what’s to say he only did this while he was with the Rangers?

It’s just a bad situation…but the bright side is that it’s unlikely for it to get any worse.  And for anyone thinking this is going to have a long-term negative affect on baseballl, that’s unlikely too.  Ticket sales aren’t going down, fans aren’t going to stop coming and so on.
