Change in profile photo-Here's why

I am upset because my Cleveland Indians decided to have another fire sale. Mark Shapiro traded Cliff Lee and Ben Francisco for four suspects, err, prospects. This means that the Tribe continues in it's ways of being the farm system for the rest of Major League Baseball. This means that the next major fire sale should occur about 2013.

I decided that I should show my disdain by changing my profile photo. The cap I'm wearing has the number 14 on it. That is Sprint Cup Tony Stewart's number. Tony is one of my favorite drivers and doing much better this year than most had expected.

I've been a fan of NASCAR since 2003 and can now understand why the sport has so many fans. In the past 6 years, I've followed NASCAR closer than baseball, mainly because whenever I turn on a race, I know that my favorite drivers will be competing on the same track.

So...The change in the profile pic shows my discontent in my favorite baseball team, the whimpering wahoos.

GENTLEMEN! START YOUR ENGINES!

I'll send you an Orioles cap, if you want it! Just kidding....

I will DEFINITELY NOT send you a Ravens cap. I might lose you as a fellow blogger friend.

I haven't liked the Orioles caps since they went back to the full bird. I prefer the cartoon bird.

Thanks for the offer though.

Marlins fan here. Only because of the area I live in. I'm not huge into baseball, but I enjoy going to a few games a season. Anyway, both times we won the World Series we had our teams ripped apart so I kind of get where you are coming from.

Well the first time you won the World Series, Jose Mesa did everything but gift wrap it for you. And seeing that the team was put together one purchase at a time, it was fitting that the game winning hit in game 7 was by Edgar RENTarea.
