    Hey Eli,

    There was a touching moment in the Mariners game last night, made possible by the best pitcher I've ever gotten to watch - Randy Johnson. Watching history unfold inspired to me take a look at his incredible career and count down his five best moments, in my eyes. If you get a chance, take a look at it, I'd appreciate it. Thanks a lot.

    Eli-
    Jim Thome is about 3 seasons away from breaking a historic record held by Reggie Jackson. Please take a look when you have time. Thanks for any comments or feedback you may have.

    Hey Eli,

    Lou Gehrig has somehow been forgotten amongst the game’s immortals, even though he was possibly even more of a reason for the success of Ruth’s 1927 Yankees. Read about the quiet, forgotten leader of “Murderer’s Row,” Henry Lou Gehrig.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey, when you write your articles, stop false tagging. It's fairly annoying, since your articles are short anyway.

    Hey, I've noticed that you've written several articles about the Los Angeles Dodgers. I just wanted to introduce myself as the new Dodgers Community Leader. I look forward to reading your future articles about the Dodgers!
