Last week's poll was a bit of a success for us. We had a total of 9 votes!! This is a record for the TBB blog. 66% of the votes went in favor of Mr. Met, though we suspect that if Laurie had been an option, she would've won. Since we will be at Wrigley Field next Friday, we're extending the time on the new poll from one week to two. This gives you ample time to vote, so...please vote. We're aiming to double our new record, so do not fail us. In celebration of the Subway Series coming up on 6/12-6/14, our poll will have a Mets/Yankees rivalry theme...sort of. In a sarcastic, typical TBB kind of way.
Today's baseball notes: Zito shall not be named (and we all know why). Congratulations to Randy Johnson for getting his 300th win! Especially with a team who cannot score runs. AJ Burnett is appealing his 6-game suspension for not hitting Nelson Cruz at Tuesday night's game against the Rangers. Perhaps there would've been no punishment had he hit him...preferably in the rear. David Ortiz is getting his eyes checked in hopes that it will help his offensive slide. Finally, on to the Bad News Mets. Apparently the entire lineup has some sort of injury (whether it's physical, mental, or emotional) and Lisa is on the verge of admitting herself to Zucker Hillside's psychiatric ward. Not only are Reyes, Church, Delgado, Beltran (and his swine flu), and the back ups to the back up players on the DL, but so is Lisa's parrot, Little Ben. And by Lisa's parrot, we mean Serena's bird who Lisa has borrowed to complete her Pirate fanhood and now appears to be suffering from an array of problems, including an insect bite. Even the Putz has joined the Boo Boo Brigade as he is getting his elbow examined this afternoon.
On to beating a dead horse...we've recently emailed Mr. Zack Zeigler (who, from what we've researched, is not related to the wonderful Brad Zeigler) from YESNetwork.com regarding his asinine interview with Baseball Barbie. Tech Support Sean has assured us that our letter is well-written and has good evidence to support our arguments. He also said that we do not sound crazy or bitter. Thankfully, he did not read our initial draft that included a lot of foul language and insults stolen from the movie, Mean Girls. We have not received a response to our letter yet, so the countdown begins. Will Zack Zeigler reply to the Traveling Baseball Babes? Or will he write us off as crazy, jealous, and bitter b*tches? Time will only tell. If we do hear back from him, you'll be the first to know!
Peace, Baseball, and Bite Me,
The Traveling Baseball Babes : )
In the words of Ugly Kid Joe, "Some day I got a bad attitude,but that don't change the way I feel about you, if you think all this might be bringing me down,look again cause I ain't wearin' no frown...everything about you, I get sick when I'm around your book, I can't stand to read about you, I hate everything about you!" Thank goodness Ugly Kid Joe is just as angry as we are.
