The Monkey & The Boy

This week is Angels‘ week with our podcast featuring the Los Angeles Angels being released on Friday, August 5th.  You can’t visit Angel Stadium without getting to know the Rally Monkey who debuted on June 6, 2000 when the Angels were trailing the Giants, 5 – 4 in the bottom of the ninth.

Two video board operators, Dean Fraulino and Jaysen Humes, took a clip of a monkey jumping around from the 1994 Jim Carrey movie comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and superimposed the words “RALLY MONKEY!” on top of it.  The Angels scored two runs and won the game.  The rest is history.

And then last week, Red Sox ace Josh Beckett did his Angel imitation with a random act of kindness.  He gave 10 year old Red Sox fan, Dylan Sylvia a souvenir to remember.  We’ll talk about both the monkey and the boy during our next podcast.

Angels Week

This week is Angels week with our podcast featuring the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim being released on Friday, July 9th.  Southern California is a great place to take pictures.  Last week we got many great pictures from this area, including some of Angels Stadium.  The Angels Stadium slide show is listed above.

We are currently uploading thousands of pictures from our baseball travels into our new flickr account so that our listeners “can see what we are talking about” during our podcasts.  The link to our flickr account is http://www.flickr.com/photos/baseballphd/

This link will always also be listed under the My Links section of our web site.  Listed below are pictures of beautiful Rodeo Drive.  Ed, Farley and Mark will be reviewing both Angels Stadium and Rodeo Drive during our upcoming Angels podcast.

Rodney Johnson from playballexperience.com takes the lead!

April is complete and it’s time to review our 2010 Major League predictions that we made on April 2nd.  The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are in first place in the AL East with a record of 17 – 6.  No one from our podcast crew has predicted the Rays to win the AL East.

In the AL Central, the Twins are in first with a record of 15 – 8.  Professor Bukiet, Ed, Farley and Mark have predicted that the Twins will win the AL Central.

In the AL West, the Angels and Athletics are tied with a 12 – 12 record.  Mark, Rodney Johnson, What and I’don’t know have predicted the Angels will win the AL West.

Currently, the New York Yankees would qualify as the American League wild card team.  Professor Bukiet, Rodney Johnson, Ed, Farley, Mark, Baseball Bob, Who and I don’t know have predicted that the Yankees will make the playoffs.

In the NL East, the New York Mets are in first place with a 14 – 9 record.  Only Farley and Who were wise enough to have this vision.

In the NL Central, the St. Louis Cardinals are in first with a 15 – 8 record.  Professor Bukiet, Ed, Baseball Bob, Who and I don’t know predicted that the Cardinals would rule their division in 2010.

In the NL West, the San Diego Padres are currently in first with a 15 – 8 record.  No staff member has predicted that the Padres will rule the West.

Lastly, in the NL wild card, the San Francisco Giants would qualify as the wild card with a 13 – 9 record.  Only Rodney Johnson predicted the Giants to make the playoffs.  It was this bold prediction that allowed Rodney Johnson to capture the lead in our predictions race.  After one month, Rodney Johnson is in the lead with a long season of baseball yet to be played.
