A sign from God. The Beard must return.

Yesterday while at the post office using the ATM type machine to generate the postage for the shirts I was mailing. I had a sign from God. When all of the transactions were completed, I went to get the receipts off the top of the machine where they were laying. After grabbing the entire stack. I noticed there was one more receipt than packages. I looked at the extra receipt and it was for postage to Indianola Iowa. I stood there for a second going through all my packages thinking if I had brought the shirt that I had planned on mailing to Casey. It was not there. So I looked at the time stamp on the receipt and it was marked 5:00PM. All the other tickets were marked 6:50-7PM.

What are the chances of someone mailing Casey Blake T shirts across the country. Finding a postage receipt for someone sending a package to Indianola Iowa from Lancaster Pa? Here are the receipts as evidence.

Money grab.

Seems Jamie needs more allowance and is asking close to a million a month.  That picture is $1,000,000.00 cash. Inside each one of those packs of wrapped $100 bills is $5000.00 

"In addition, according to the filing, Frank McCourt currently resides in a "luxury hotel in Beverly Hills," has spent $52,000 on clothes since November and keeps two of his sons on the Dodgers' payroll -- at a combined annual salary of $600,000 -- "despite the fact that one is a graduate student at Stanford and the other works full-time for Goldman Sachs."

Leona Helmsley once said. "We don't pay taxes, only the little people do"   I guess Frank and Jamie are not little people like us.

Also, as a result of carefully structured business entities, the McCourts have "paid no federal or California state income taxes since at least 2004," according to the filing.

Welcome back

“The fans mean everything, ... The feeling I get when I pitch is amazing. It's the best feeling. Words can't describe it. The fans mean so much.”  Eric Gagne

I'm not feeling it Eric. You broke my kids heart when you left. You broke it again when the Mitchell report came out. I have watched you pitch for the Rangers, Red Sox, and Brewers over the years. I don't think all of your struggles, were yours to blame. It seemed you were never on the same page or clicked with the catchers like you did in LA. If you really want to win your fans back. Work hard and prove yourself in spring training. I know a little girl that is pulling for you, even though she's not so little anymore.  Best of luck and  Dieu vous bĂ©nisse.

Indianola Community Youth Foundation

Cough up some cash for Casey

Some changes coming

Working on a new home page for the site. I know Gil's number is not retired, but on the LFP.com it is. I'm not waiting on Frank or the HOF to get their shit together.  The blog will be converting to a World Press format, as soon as I can decide on a theme. If you readers want a dark theme or a white theme give me some input on whats best for you. I like the dark because the pictures show up better.

One final note. 
LFP T-shirts are at the printer and will be done this week. This is what they will look like. Choices are Black or Blue. They have Beard on the front and the LFP logo on the back. I made these for the guys on my forum, but did order a few extra. Once they are gone, they're gone. If you'd like one, let me know. I think there are less than a dozen extra. in sizes S through 3x

CASEY! I know you're out there

Dear Casey
 I have in my possession. A picture of you from your high school yearbook. You know the one I'm talking about. The one that your team mates would die laughing at, while plastering it all over the clubhouse walls. 
If you grow the beard back. I will start a movement with the three people who follow this blog and donate to whatever charity you would like. Just let me know where to send the money. The email address to reach me is at the bottom of the sidebar. Each day I do not hear from you, the photo becomes clearer. You really don't want Matt Kemp or Brian Wilson to see it do you?  Come on Casey. What do you say?

Somehow I knew

I saw this during a game on MLB net

It reminded me of a couple in the news this off season.

Thank for the memories MLB network

Today on MLBs all time games. They had game four of the 1978 playoffs. When I turned it on.  Rick Rhoden had just come in to pitch in relief. The first thing that popped into my head was the scissors story. If you watched any Dodgers game that he pitched in 1976 on TV. You no doubt heard the story, over and over on how when Rick was a young boy. He slid into a pair of rusty scissors while playing.Story  I was mad when they traded him to the Pirates. Getting Jerry Reuss in return helped ease that pain. But I'll never forget how a young 23 year old right hand pitcher made my summer in 1976.
