A Look Back-April 2005

First_post_2MLBlogs- Year One
It seems I started blogging here a bit later than I had previously thought. May 1st to be exact. Yeah, I jumped all over that marlins.mlblogs.com name thinking I pulled one off. I still have yet to see another Marlins blog around here and frankly, I don’t want to see one. I mean, think about it. I have the market cornered. Whenever something with the Marlins happens thats newsworthy, who gets the plug? Me, that’s who. Eh, seriously though, I really would like to see some other Marlin Blogs on here. We need all of the support we can get. You just can’t have the "marlins" sub-domain!

I had a few ideas in mind that went the way of the Dodo Bird. I wanted to do a monthly "Best of the Best" that featured the top players of the past month. I guess it was too much work on my part because it lasted like, one post. I thought throwing out the occasional ballpark eats recipe would be fun.  Not much going on there either. One thing is for certain…I can find some humor in what is happening to my team and write about it. I don’t blog after every single game because I really don’t see the point. That’s what the sportswriters do and they can do it alot better than I can. My goal is to write about the not so obvious things from the games or offer a little more insight from a fans point of view instead of the AP type stories.

Here’s to another great year of blogging on this site and I hope all of the new recruits hang around after their one month freebie is up. I’d like to make this the largest, most read, organized baseball blogging network on the internet.

Full of Talent

I gotta say that the Tampa Bay Devil Rays have got to have one of the brightest futures in baseball as far as talent goes. Who wouldn’t want this roster come 2007 or 2008:

Jorge Cantu
BJ Upton
Rocco Baldelli
Carl Crawford
Jonny Gomes
Delmon Young
Aubrey Huff
Joey Gaithright
Julio Lugo(might not be in future plans)

Scott Kazmir
Edwin Jackson

Now all they need is another top starter or two and they are set. I would even imagine they could trade Gaithright or Huff for said starter and still have an amazing outfield. Now only if their fans can pull it together and come to the games, maybe when these players begin to peak, they can actually sign them long term.

Watch out Yankees, here come the D-Rays.

On a side note, their uniforms/colors are in my top five all time. Scold me all you want with that comment, but I love green.
