New Blog, Same Team

I'd like to think I've been very good about responding to the folks who have started new Giants blogs.  The more the merrier.  I have, however, completely neglected Orange and Black Baseball for no reason other than forgetfulness.  It's new, and...different.  We all have a niche here in the Giants blog world.  Fogball does the stats, Steve does the links.  El Lefty, Only Baseball Matters, Across the Seams, and several others have provided almost-daily analysis, and The Los Angeles Blues of Westwood and I do the snarky attempts at humor.  What's missed is the whimsy, garshdangit.  It seems like Orange and Black Baseball is dripping with goofiness, and that is meant in the best way possible.

Check him out, and again that's at Orange and Black Baseball.  Only after you've basked in the new site for a while, of course.  Bask.  Keep basking.  Keeep basking.  I said bask, damn you!

Also, as a side note to the Westwood Blues name change and I'm sure this has been written by many people before, but doesn't The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim roughly mean The The Angels Angels of Anaheim?  Again, this is probably not an original thought, but worth noting.

Quick edit: Shoot. Forgot about Jay. That man knows his history, and what a good job he does filling that niche.
