He is all over the news again. The ex-mariner is in another controversy after Torre released his new book that criticized Rodriguez for being a fraud. The Yankees seem to have rallied around their player, but that was expected- no one knows whats really happening behind the scenes in the clubhouse and between the players. What do you think is happening and will this all blow over? Also, will it effect A. Rod's play- for the better or worse?
I find it ridiculous that Manny Ramirez and Scott Boras did not accept a $25 million, one year deal with the Dodgers. L.A. is a competitor and Manny needs to realize he isn't going to get the 6 years or whatever he wants because he is simply too old and Major League Baseball teams have learned the hard way that signing old players to long terms isn't always good *cough the Yankees.

New reports show that Major League Baseball headman, Bud Selig, made an astounding $17.5 million in 2007. Only three players earned more than him, all three being on the Yankees (Giambi, ex-Mariner Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter.) Of course there are more players that make over 17.5 now, but that is still a huge amount, especially for a commish of Selig's caliber. He is no where near good for the sport and only cares about the owners, which really hurts the fans, who are the people that really keep it all going. It's all a business sadly...

After writing the last review, people have been asking me if I have a similar site for the Bebo social network. I actually do and this site is similar to the last, except it is for Bebo. It has tons of Bebo information including Bebo news. Like the Facebook site, it also has an unblock Bebo feature for those using shared public networks. There is also a review of the Bebo community, which contains a lot of information for new Bebo users and old users alike. It is certainly something that anyone who likes social networking should check out. Even if other social networks weren’t for you, Bebo might be, just check out this site for the information if you are wary before signing up.
Today I have a couple more website reviews of sites I like. The first one is for all of you Facebook fans out there. Facebook information is a website that aims to help users enhance their Facebook experience. The site includes several Facebook tools including a message save, direct webcam video uploader, and a Faceboom AIM status icon. It also contains Facebook proxy for all of you who are trying to access the social networking site from a public network that blocks it. Fcbkinfo.com also contains information on how you can market yourself or your brand on Facebook. Overall, the site is a must-see for any Facebook users.
After the signing of Mark Teixeira by the Yankees, other free agents were hoping they would move to the front of the line in terms of interest. Yet, that interest has not formed, partly due to economic problems. This is not good news for free agents like Manny Ramirez, who were hoping for big deals with big money because it simply isn't happening in this climate.

If you saw the spam filter coming to this site or the last post I made to the workers over at Blogger, don't be afraid because I am here to stay :) Blogger filters simply made the mistake of thinking that this blog was automated and run by robots, which is against the T.O.S. Of course I am a real human and I will continue blogging so stay tuned for more on the Mariners and the world!

I understand your concern, but I am not spamming. I am a real human, who has read the T.O.S. and those posts were simply site reviews for some of my buddy's sites which he wanted some exposure for. If that is considered spam, I will stop posting more reviews (I hope I can keep the ones I've done since I promised him them), but please open up my blog again- I would still like to post about other things like the Mariners.

Cell phones are an everyday part of life nowadays. Yet, cell phone providers still have areas in which they are not able to relay good signal, simply because there is so much space to cover. This can be a hassle for cell phone users, but now there is something that they can do about it. The cell phone booster, also known as the mobile booster, is a product that will amplify your cell phone signal. This means less dropped calls, better sound quality, and more bars virtually everywhere. It can be a bit expensive, but for those who rely on their phones it can definitely be worth the money.
The acai berry is a fruit that continues to grow in popularity and that is why I am blogging about it once more. This time I have a great site that not only gives you information about the fruit, but it gives details about the actual supplements that are available on the market. It also tells you where you can buy acai berry and has information on the acai berry diet. It is definitely worth a look even if you’ve gone to other acai berry sites because this one has some really great information on the particular products and it makes comparisons between them.

Rickey Henderson, considered by many to be the greatest lead-off hitter of all time, was accepted into the Hall of Fame this week. It was his first time of the ballot and he got in with over 90% of the vote. There was no surprise that'd he got elected. In fact, it was surprising that he didn't get more of the vote. Henderson was one of the best the game has ever seen and he played with several teams including the Seattle Mariners. It was great to watch him and for all the younger children, it is a shame they can't (they can always watch old tapes though.) Henderson was a heck of a player and he deserves to be in.

If you like taking quizzes you may want to try this Emo Quiz.

It is all for fun, nothing serious, but it can pass the time when you are bored. You can also tell your friends about it so that they take it and you can compare the results!
