Silver investing

Monex Deposit Companies is a dedicated precious metals investment company. Promotion of silver investments is a big deal right now and they are true experts in this market. As an investment product, silver is available in coin or ingot form. Ingots are generally silver ingots of pure bullion cast in a convenient size and shape. Coins have a currency value or they are actually defined as ingots. Silver is at a time where it has more demand than production so that only means one thing. The price is bound to go up. Remedial supply and demand economics will tell you this. When something is in demand that is greater than its supply it has rising value.

Ichiro wins All-Star MVP Award

Ichiro is probably one of the more amazing hitters in baseball in the last generation. This guy won the Rookie of the Year, a Gold Glove, and league MVP awards in his rookie season. 200 hits is a standard for him year after year. He is a guy that is said to be a HR machine in batting practice, but since he is blessed with exceptional speed, and hits at the top of the order he tends to utilize those skills to just get on base and beat out infield hits. As he slows I'm sure we can look forward to the guy hitting 30 HRs a year, and I am not just talking out of my ass. I really believe he will.

So the American League wins the AS game again 5-4 to give my Tigers home field advantage in the World Series again this year. Ichiro put together a solid game with 3 hits, but his biggest hit was a first in an All-Star game. An inside the park home run that scored 2 runs. Probably one of my favorite players of all-time, Ken Griffey, Jr. was unable to make a play on the ball and the speedy Ichiro rounded all the bases and made it home. A rare feat in baseball and the hit that basically won him the MVP.
