MLB playoffs

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

The more I think about it, the more improbable it seems. The guy never really played baseball as a kid, only glorified softball in some beer leagues. Then basically learns the game from scratch in the minors and becomes a big leaguer and HOFer.

That's crazy :crazy:

Morneau had some great years, but after those concussions, he just wasn't the same player.
My dad and Sr went back quite a ways. Jr was a hockey goalie and played a bit of baseball growing up and then for his dad’s Fastpitch team as a shortstop when he was 16 with his dad and three brothers. He never took baseball seriously until he played for the Reds as a 17 year old. He started mashing almost immediately... Raw as hell but strong as an ox and could run like a deer.

Not playoffs but;

Blue Jays denied government approval to play home games in Toronto

The Blue Jays home opener is scheduled for July 29 against the Washington Nationals, meaning the team now has 11 days to solidify a location for home games. Other options under consideration are TD Ballpark in Dunedin or Buffalo’s Sahlen Field, home of the triple-A Bisons.

Turner is such a douchebag. Hopefully he gets ear holed a few times next season. I didn’t like him before, I can’t stand him now. His wife however is a smoke show. Clearly in it for the money, doesn’t give a good fuck about looks or hygiene. 8-)
