I employ Google Ads on my blog. Why? Mostly because it is easy. I’ve yet to collect anything from them. There is some money in my account, but not enough for them to cut me a check.

But it’s kind of neat how their system works. If I were to write a post on the Cubs you would likely see Cubs ads and so on. Well I recently posted about Ron Artest. I’m chuckling at the ads that I currently see on the ‘ol blog. “Free Ron Artest Jersey–Free New Pacers #15 Jersey!”. At first I wondered if it was “Free Artest”, as in “Free Lithuania”. But it’s for the actual Artest jersey and the ad is just outdated.

Other free Pacer jerseys I would like:

  • Ricky Sobers
  • Rick Robey
  • Vern Fleming
  • Greg Dreiling
  • Lasalle Thompson
  • Steve Stipanovich
  • Granville Waiters

If you recognize 2 or more of these names you are a very sick person.

By the way, if you’d like to use a real browser and help fund “The Zoner”, download Firefox from the link on the right. (No a little lower. There it is.) It absolutely rules.

    My favorite part is this:

    “Cedeno is going to get the first nod, but it’s up to him to keep the job without us putting pressure on him.”

    Isn’t putting pressure on him exactly what he’s doing by saying if he doesn’t do well Neifi’s gonna take over?

    Sheesh. I could actually find reasons for optimism this year if we had a different manager. But every time I think what if, I remember Dusty’s penchant for playing the wrong guys.

    This WILL happen and they’re going to ruin Cedeno. Dusty is a freaking mechanism. Cedeno could still hit .300 in April–but as soon as he hits a slumpy spot in May or June–he’ll lose his job. Think about what they did to Dubois and Hill last year. Dubois was slugging .800 in may, and they still wouldn’t committ to him–as soon as he slumped they pasted him to the bench and destroyed his confidence and then got rid of him. Hill had two good starts, then bombed his next two, and they shipped him back to the farm–as if to say “YOU CANT DO THIS”.

    Think about how the A’s handled Joe Blanton last year. At the end of May he was 0-5 WITH A 6.66 ERA. The A’s stuck with him–they were basically saying “YOU’RE OUR GUY. WE BELIEVE IN YOU. WE KNOW YOU CAN SUCCEED AT THIS LEVEL”

    The Cubs would have yanked his ass in April.

    Blanton is the perfect example. Or anyone on the Braves last year. No way Baker plays so many kids at once. Francouer got to play. Murton didn’t. Dusty has a little too much Dick Jauron in him.

    Dusty is an idiot. I hate to say it, but I’m not optimistic at the Cubs chances of success with him at the helm. Why? 2003-2005.
