Fox News obsession

Guest post written by Jeramy Sparks

Since we got, the only thing my husband wants to watch is the Fox News channel. I don’t even know how he got so hooked on watching that channel. I understand that it keeps him informed about things that are happening in the world, and it does seem to lean toward the more conservative side with most issues they are covering. But, how much of all that can one person watch? I absolutely prefer to watch much more important things like The Bachelor, Gray’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and even those repeat shows of the Kardashians. I know it is good to keep up with the economy crisis and what everyone plans to do about all that, but don’t you want to get away from all of that sometimes. I would rather watch something that is going to make me forget about all the troubles of the world for an hour or two so I can go to sleep and dream about something lighter that doesn’t have anything to do with a recession. I am going to have to work on my husband to get him interested in other topics. It cannot be good for your health to think about all that all of the time.

A lot of talk that Miguel Cabrera Can't Play 3B

Let's just say I'm far from worried about it. I have said this for at least 2 years and our 3B defense hasn't exactly been superb over that time anyways. We are easily one of the least productive 3rd base spots in the league the last several years with Inge playing most of the time. Inge isn't even that good of a fielder anymore so this isn't a hell of a downgrade.

I found a decent breakdown discussing the situation with Miggy moving to 3rd that I agree with for the most part. Some things such as saying Miggy was a poor 1st baseman though aren't correct so I disagree there. As to why he was moved as well to 1B wasn't because he stunk but because Guillen stunk at 1B and it was the only choice. Guillen has been ready to move on to something like a unified communications platform position for a while now.

Take a look at this blog post for a bit of a breakdown and hopefully it will calm your nerves a bit. probably won't, but the overreaction as if Inge was ever the answer there certainly should be undone.
