Lefty's have it easy

When Randy Johnson was with the Mariners every team used to rest their best left handed hitters when he was on the mound. Dave Niehaus would even joke about them getting the day off. Right handed hitters never get this luxury, in fact you would think much less of Albert Pujols if he took the day off every time the Cardinals faced a premier righty. It seems like this is one of those old baseball thoughts that it's harder for lefties to hit lefties than it is for righties to hit righties.

Do you know any stories about left handed pitchers going down on a girl for hours on end?

No, but have I got a story for you about Paul Abbot!

That's where this needs to go. Very rumor we've ever heard about a Seattle Sports star (and I use the term Seattle loosely).

BTW is it true that Marilyn Manson is really Paul Fifer?

I heard the Squatch once pleasured a referee during halftime

Did you know that Angie Mentink's kid is actually Ken Griffey Jrs. He bought her that huge house on Mercer Island and got her a lifetime gig on FSN even though she sucks.

I like how this post was made at 5:26 AM. As if your rage about this topic wouldn't allow you to sleep.

Camerin: Matt it's too early, come back to bed.

Matt: No! those fucking righties have had a free pass for way too long.
