Josh Reddick and the Stockton Ports

By on Jun 2, 2013 in Baseball, Featured | 0 comments

This year has been a fairly new and exciting adventure with baseball. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a ton of great new people and finally got down to Banner Island Park to see the Stockton Ports play last Monday night. I’ve been to a few minor league parks and have to say that Banner Island is a great place to watch a game.  Most minor league parks are dumps, but they’ve certainly built themselves a beautiful place down there in Stockton.    When the news hit that Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick was going to be there for a rehab assignment, I jumped online and grabbed a couple of tickets. A lot of the Right Field crew seemed to make the trek out to Stockton after having spent the afternoon watching the A’s beat the Giants. And I’m certain that Josh felt “at home” with his banner hanging right next to the On Deck circle.   Reddick...

The A-Team and Ben Bernanke

  The A-Team movie is a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s not fine art by any stretch, but it’s great escapist fantasy. I always stop when I flip past it on the television.   The line from Lynch is the one that makes me laugh every time I hear him say it.   BILLIONS!!!

The one thing someone can say to drive me nuts, when they find out I play poker, is “So you like to gamble?”   It’s less that “I like to gamble” and more “I love finding situations with positive expected value (EV)”.   And this is one heck of a plus EV situation.   So a friend of mine, Megan Squires, recently released a book that she has written called Traced: Part One of The Outlier Chronicles.  I’m only a couple of chapters into it and, so far, it’s kind of a cross between 1984 and Twilight, except without the demeaning attitude towards women that Stephanie Meyers infuses into her writing.  And lame vampires. No lame, sparkly vampires in Traced either.   I should take this opportunity to let everyone know there’s a bit of exaggeration in my “picture review”. I have no idea if it’s true. I assume it to be true, but can’t prove it since I didn’t read the entire Twilight Saga. ...
