Things to Know for the 2008 MLB Season

Baseball is set to start on Tuesday at 6:05 in the morning on ESPN2 in Japan. Yes, the Boston Red Sox decided to play the Oakland A's. The guys over at Bugs & Cranks have compiled a list of 162 things baseball fans need to know with the season just hours away.

These are just a few:
22. Justin Upton was born after the ball went through Buckner’s legs.
23. Billy Buckner of the Diamondbacks was not.
24. Vin Scully is still alive.
25. Phil Rizzuto is not.
26. The Rockies begin the season riding a four-game losing streak.
27. Doug Mientkiewicz was Pittsburgh’s big offseason free-agent acquisition.
28. The Steelers signed Mewelde Moore as insurance for Fast Willie Parker.
29. The Yankees have no insurance against Joe Girardi’s use of young pitchers.
30. Jacoby Ellsbury has never been caught stealing in the major leagues (9 for 9).
31. Neither has Stephen Drew (11 for 11).
32. Neither has Joba Chamberlain.
Number 162 rings especially true.


About the Undrafted Free Agent

Ron Crimson was the only player on the high school roster to not get in a game. He couldn't argue with the decision, because he sucked. Needless to say, yet stated anyway, when he entered the NBA draft following his sophomore season in college, he went undrafted. Now, Ron Crimson is the Undrafted Free Agent.

Look at This!

There's nothing here; I just needed to fill some space. Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! I also needed to balance it out a bit.
