Not much music news here today. I pretty much avoided my computer this weekend. Too busy celebrating my 36th birthday. Yes, I am officially closer to 40 than I am to 30. I don’t feel older mentally, just that my body doesn’t agree with my brain.

12 of us Saturday night here including Kim & I. Beer, water, rum, wine, etc., munchies, pizza & cup cakes. Beer’s gone but Kim replenished my liquor & gave me an iTunes gift card. Does that mean she’s encouraging my habit?

I hope everyone enjoyed the old man celebration? We went for lunch at my parents place for a family birthday celebration. Christmas morning “Wife Saver”, carrot cake, pecan pie & a snazzy blue Toronto Blue Jays jersey. No name, I’m bad luck. If I get the name of any current athlete on any team, it’s a guarantee they will be traded or cut from the roster. Now I just get blank jerseys or a retired athlete’s name on the back.

Great weekend, with great people!

1168 albums in my iTunes at the moment only a dozen or so I haven’t listened to, that I’ve borrowed from friends with a similar taste in music.

Thank you Phil Anselmo (former singer of Pantera), we don’t need anymore hatred/racism in the world! Stop please!


Interview with Lzzy & Joe of “Halestorm”

I was watching “Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown” on Friday. Every Friday there’s a round table discussion with 3 or 4 other broadcasters they were talking about some trade rumours they had heard floating around 2 Blue Jay players. The $20 million a year short stop they got at the trade deadline in July of last year & the center fielder Kevin Pillar $700,000 a year. They won’t get anything for Pillar, he has just finished his first full season in the big league & he’s 26 or 27 years old, right at the beginning of his career peak. His salary is non negotiable for 3 years. The short stop, Troy Tulowitzki, is in his mid-30s, making $20 million a year. I have nothing against him. He seems like a great fit, his defense is top notch & although we didn’t see it last year, he is able to hit 20-25 home runs. I say trade Tulowitzki, a no brainer for me. They have Ryan Goins at the age of 23 or so, young & his glove is the best I’ve seen since the first hall of fame Blue Jay player Roberto Alomar. They lost their 2nd baseman to injury early last year, Goins played the bulk of the year at 2nd. He’s young & came up through the Blue Jays minor league system & he likely wont make over a million dollars for a few years. Their 2nd baseman left because of injury last year. At that time he was the leading rookie in almost every category. He’ll miss the first 4 weeks of this season. That being said, they have other people that can fill that role in the meantime. I like Tulowitzki, he’s just a high price when you take into consideration that Jose Bautista & Edwin Encarnacion both have only this year left on their contracts & will likely be asking for at least $20,000,000 a year for each of them. So why not trade Tulowitzki, get a decent pitcher & a decent catcher in return. Decent, not top dollar, a back up catcher, & a middle of the starting rotation pitcher, a number 3-5 out of 5 pitchers. FYI Goins is a natural short stop.
