Who were the best rookies in MLB 2006? Here's
the whole list sorted by AB.
(The Marlins had 6 of the top 17, 4 of the top 8. And
here are the pitchers.
- The strongest competition is among AL
pitchers. There were three who made tremendous contributions:
Papelbon, Verlander and Liriano. Each has his merits, although
Liriano would have had a stronger case if he had not been
injured. (12-3, 2.16 is still very impressive.) Given the
Liriano injury, Papelbon seems to be the choice.
- I'd say Anibal Sanchez was the best NL
pitcher, but ya gotta wonder if 114 innings will be enough to
get him noticed. The best answer for NL rookie pitcher of the
year is "The Marlins Pitching Staff."
- The best NL rookie non-pitcher seems to
me to be Hanley Ramirez. Plays SS. Has speed. Has power. Pretty
good batting eye for a rookie. Scored 119 runs
- No position player really stands out in
- Therefore ... my best guesses for ROTY:
Papelbon and Henley Ramirez.

Damn! I guess Da Bears are for real
- They have allowed only 29 points in
four games, best in the NFL, and they've scored 119, second best
in the NFL. Look at it another way. The Colts are 4-0 because
they arguably have the league's strongest offense. The Ravens
are 4-0 because they have arguably the league's best defense.
The Bears have been as strong on offense as the
undefeated-because-of-offense Colts, and as strong on defense as
the undefeated-because-of-defense Ravens. That's impressive.
Answering a reader question:
"Why didn't Joe DiMaggio get into the Hall of
Fame in his first year of eligibility? He retired in 1951, but
wasn't elected until 1955, even though there was no five-year
waiting period in 1952."

third most loutish, bad-mannered nation behind Russia and France
- Groundskeeper Willie has filed a formal
protest because the voting was restricted only to people with
"Britney Spears loves stripping off, and only

- Ya know, there was a time when that
would have been kind of a turn-on.
"Jessica Biel is a Man, Baby!"

think maybe she's a bit too serious about it. Those are some
mighty heavy muscles.

Waco song swept up in immigration fireworks
- There's a new underground country hit,
"So Long, Texas - Hello, Mexico!," about a cowboy who moves to
Mexico to demand free government health care and that all
documents be printed in English just for him. There's a growing
debate over whether it's funny or racist.
- Why can't it be both? No reason why
racists can't be funny. To assume racists have no sense of humor
would be racist, wouldn't it? Just as one example, there were
the wacky racists.
- Oh, yeah, I almost forgot.
Here's the song.
George Michael has been arrested and
cautioned after being found once again slumped over the wheel of
his car in London
- OK, "arrested" I can see, but
"cautioned"? Is that kind of barbaric cruelty permitted under
international law? Man, those bobbies are tough. We need to get
them involved in anti-terrorism. "Stop, Osama bin Laden! I
caution you in the name of the crown."
- Michael immediately responted to the
stern cautioning with a solemn oath to change his life
completely. He will never again be found slumped over the wheel
of his car in London. He's moving to Guildford.

Frivolous Lola (1998)
Originally called Monella, this is a Tinto Brass sex farce. Lola is
ripe and sassy, and due to be married to the baker, Patrick Mower.
Unfortunately for her, he doesn't believe in premarital sex, although
he doesn't let that stop him from visiting a hooker (Francesca Nunzi).
She becomes interested in her mother's boyfriend, a small-time
pornographer, who may or may not be her father. Lola flirts with every
man in town, and there is not a single one of them that doesn't
appreciate it. The women , however, are not as amused. That is the set
up, and the question to be answered is, "Will Lola get everything she
Frivolous Lola is a very enjoyable European Sex Farce. The Tinto
Brass name guarantees lingering looks at nude female backsides, and
this is the best transfer to date of a Tinto Brass film. The title
role is played to perfection by Anna Ammiratti. The music is evocative
of the time (1950s), and includes many hit songs I remember.
This is a C+, genre heaven. The only meaningful negative is
that the dubbing could have been much better.
IMDb readers say 5.0, which only shows that sex farces don't have much
Dann reports on Hot Tamale:
Sure, you could
watch it just because Diora Baird has really big breasts, but you
don't have to. This 2006 action/crime/comedy is fun and fast moving, and
well worth watching even if Diora was flat chested. Its well
written, well acted, and just a really enjoyable flick.
After becoming fast friends with an
exchange student who stays with his family in Wyoming, a young man joins
his friend in Los Angeles to try and get a job in a Salsa band.
During the trip, he unknowingly winds up
in possession of diamonds stolen from the mob. They want them back.
This high-energy film will keep you
interested from start to finish, and Diora is not only well
endowed, she's cute as a bug's ear. Highly recommended.
Pat's comments in yellow...
Friday, Florida Republican Rep. Mark Foley resigned after it came out that
last year, he exchanged sexually-explicit emails and instant messages with a
16-year-old boy who used to be a Congressional page. Making it extra-ironic is
the fact that Foley was a crusader on behalf of abused children and helped write
and pass the same kiddie porn laws he might be charged under. He also said, at
the height of President Clinton's Lewinsky scandal, "It's vile. It's more sad
than anything else, to see someone with such potential throw it all down the
drain because of a sexual addiction."
* "And with a woman! An ADULT woman! Yuck!"
* At least we know our kiddie porn laws are written by experts!
In a speech at the U.N. last week, Al Gore claimed that cigarette smoking
is a "significant contributor to global warming"
* Then he got into his private jet and took off. But
