  • Countdown until Pitchers and Catchers Report

    http://www.sportsline.com/mlb

    In the middle, you'll see in blue a countdown bar showing how much time until life begins. Until then, let's try staying sane, despite there being a lack of baseball here. Does anything else matter?

        Just look at the top of CE, since it's now "stuck" like glue.

          Can you copy paste the countdown part on your first post?
          Then it would merit a sticky!

            You could, but it would be stuck at the spot it was left at when it was copied. A script is updating the clock on that site that can't be copied.

            The A: No

            ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
            Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

              Where are the aging stars?

              Only 36 1/2 more days until the countdown ends, and I'm already chomping at the bit. HOF announcement is scheduled for this afternoon, the WBC looks like it might blow up in Slug's mug, and trade rumors are still being bandied about the league. My main concern at this point, though, is when will we start getting the retirement announcements from the free agents that nobody seems to want. I know it is a crappy way to go out, but I don't see much hope of any team signing some of the more high profile veterans like Sammy, big Frank, Raffy, and even Nomar and Jr. will likely not be playing until May 1, and even then at a highly reduced salary. Has anyone heard or feel differently?

                    Counting Down

                    Its a ridiculous 54 degrees today,left work a little early,trash-man still hasnt picked up my christmas tree...Spring the dog loose from home confinement,kids are not home from school yet,Inspect the back yard,for the ravages of winter,Find the whiffle ball,and bat that my daughter left in yard around labor day,Pick bat and ball up,and toss ball in the air,take a mighty hack,and a whiff that Reggie Jackson would be proud of.Try again,manage a feeble foul-pop,(but made a nice over-the-shoulder catch,which i immediatley dedicate to the late-great Elrod Hendicks.)Manage to make contact on swing three,a slow-roller to 2nd,which the Dog-fields as smooth as a Morgan-Concepcion double-play.The Dog(Rusty)LeGrande Orange,refuses to yield his prize,until a bird(Not a Cardinal,Blue Jay,or Oriole distracts him...Seize the ball,one more toss,into the January air,a good,clean swing,down the line in left,heading fair,neighbors yard,Just like Fisk,all over again

                      31 days, 3+ hours.

                      Can't we just fast-forward to 31 days from now?

                      Oh, that clock ends at midnight. I'll probably be chomping at the bit until the morning tho.

                        Sure. I'll bring the DeLorean around and you can hop right in.

                          Oh gosh, silver cars from guys who haven't been in the news (or at least newsworthy), but whose names keep popping up.

                          Bring back Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle, then we'll talk. Until then, it's Pitchers & Catchers time!

                            Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

                              Ah, down to the last month. Dang, this offseason just keeps going, and going, and going....
                              Of course, I'm sure it seems even worse, now that college football is over, and there's not one team alive in the NFL that I give a crap about!
