Leave it to me to not know JJ was Rookie of the Year in The Netherlands in 2002.
Allegedly starting today (don't shoot me if he ends up coming in the game later on, who knows? Spring Training is a crapshoot LOL), is the A's latest signing Jason Jennings, who will get the ball and (we hope) be wailin' on the Cubs for 1 or 2 frames today. Don't worry, by the start of the regular season I'll be over my urge, as yet unstoppable, to make a dopey, facile reference to country music legend Waylon Jennings every time Jason makes a start or comes in a game.
Ah yes, the game... I am really hoping this game will be on the radio LOL OMG BBQ WTF is going on with the A's and the radio? The way the stuff with KTRB is unfolding borders on the dull side of insanity, where no one even has any fun and all you get is static and Michael Savage, which is really the same thing for anyone with ears. I'd write a whole piece about how the team's management should bury their collective heads in shame over what has happened with the radio station but it's only Day 4 of Spring Training and I want you to enjoy it.... even if you can't hear it.
