Reason #4,391

The New York Yankees are trying to shut down the guy. Of course, as a result, just printed an article on it, and so he just got a lot of free publicity. While I'm not a huge fan of the shrill anti-Yankee crowd, I appreciate the guy's logo designs (the throwback Mariners hat has always been my favorite). What I can't understand is: why does this always happen? Some company or organization tries to ban something, and in the process brings it to everyone's attention, and ends up giving it far more publicity than it had previously. All while coming across as the bad guys. Which they are, in this case, since they're the Yankees, but you know what I mean.


  1. I want to beat Jeremy to the punch and say - that is awesome!!!

  2. One item to note on an old post - since noone really goes back after one or two new ones....

    re: Millar an clubhouse chemistry. Of course most of us do not believe in such a thing - winning is winning. Production is production. Most people will tell you that winning games creates chemistry.

    But even if there is such a thing as chemistry, the O's improved chemistry this year is likely to much more a factor of their being no Sosa, no Raffy and no Ponson. And of course all those guys were there in the first half of last year when they were on fire. sure Raffy's real problems did not come until late in the year (but there are rumblings that his appeal really dragged on while he collected the 3,000th hit).
