A retired publisher of business magazines, I'm Canadian, eh, and I reside in London, Ontario.

I see myself as a typical old-age pensioner who doesn't know all that much about baseball and needs to get a life.

If I come across as a bottom-feeder, well, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. However, I'm not nearly as big a loser as the Toronto Blue Jays have been for the past decade. Unfortunately, the Jays--I've been a fan for the past 25 years--are still my favorite team. I waste hundreds of hours every year agonizing over the team's effeteness.

Despite the latter, I believe that I'm still reasonably sane as I love old ladies, adult beverages and corned beef sandwiches, and I hate the Yankees.


Today (3-1-2010), I opted for fan free agency and have switched allegiance to the New York Yankees for the chance to win. Money was a non-factor. Winning is all that counts, eh. GO YANKEES!


Update 3-17-2010: The Yankees community kicked me out because I was deemed not arrogant enough to be a Yankees fan. When I tried to return my allegiance to the Jays, they designated me for assignment. So I'm kind of at loose ends right now, eh.

    After the great success of my first article about the uniform numbers 1-10, I have come back with the next installment, with the best players to wear the uniform numbers 11-20. I hope you can take a look and even comment on my choices. Thanks in advance!
