Voting for stuff is even cooler when it’s in the NL

July 8, 2008

Let’s get serious people. This voting business is serious, and if you don’t vote, P. Diddy will kill you. The avid readers of Awesomo probably saw yesterday’s post about who is trying to sway votes for the AL, and most likely you were thinking, “yeah that is great, but who should I vote for in the NL?” Never fear, Awesomo is here. Don’t like what we have to say, check out these jerks.

Pat “The Pearl” Burrell: WTF is the pearl for you ask? Well that is how his last name is pronounced, like Bearl. Down to the nitty gritty. Burrell is batting .277 with a monsterous 22 jacks, 54 RBIs, and his OBP is soaring at .409. A man that has stuckout no fewer than 120 in his 8 year career, has 72 already. The difference this year is that he has dropped 22 bombs, and looks to be on pace to set career highs in homers and batting average. Unless of course he pulls a Bobby Abreu and disappears in the second half. Remember, this is a Philly we are talking about.

Corey Hart: He is batting .299 with 14 bombs, 55 RBIs, and 13 more stolen bases than Pat Burrell. Aided by nothing bu fan voting and sheer Hart (see what we did there), the Brewer outfielder is looking to land his trip to NY. Too bad he isn’t that good. Better luck next year pal. The Brewers would have a better chance if they were campaiging for CC.

Carlos Lee: “El Caballo” arguably boasts the best stats of everyone in this group, .290, 20 HRs, and 70 RBI. Plus he is on our fantasy team, and we traded Kerry Wood for him. The Astros will give a lucky voting fan a free signed bat, but a Panama City radio station will give you a free hat if you vote 25 times, and said hat is for a beer company.

Aaron Rowand: He made the all-star team last year. Apart from hitting instead of Albert Pujols, it was a very unforgettable night. He is batting .300 with 8 HRs, and 47 RBIs. Thanks but no thanks.

David Wright: Wright is batting .288, 17 homers, 70 RBI, 56 runs, and 9 SBs. Probably the second best numbers after Lee. We love everything about Wright, his style of play, his attitude, his ability, this website. Some might say we have a man crush, but this year, we don’t want this man to make the team. Right now, there is only 1 Met representative on the All-Star roster, and that is fine by us. With the class that this organization has handled themselves, they deserve nothing more. It is our hope that David doesn’t make this team.

Who we are voting for: Pat Burrell is putting up stellar numbers, especially in the first couple of months, but he has slowed his pace a little, and he is a Philly. We kind of just don’t like them. Carlos Lee has great numbers, and a cool nickname. That is enough to sway our vote. Now it’s up to you.


Hot Chicks & Clicks; Summer Hours

June 13, 2008

“Yeah we tease him a lot because we got him on the spot, welcome back, welcome back…” If you didn’t guess it, the lyrics are from “Welcome Back, Cotter,” a show we have never seen. The lyrics are two fold, one we are back. Our reader may have noticed, we haven’t been around a whole lot lately. Stupid work and stupid vacation. By vacation we mean working more. Two, Fergie is apparently a tease, F’n lucky bastard Josh Duhamel (but damn can he act). We watched like 10 minutes of Grindhouse: Planet Terror (not the one where Kurt Russell kills people with cars, the one where Rose McGowan doesn’t have a leg). Fergie was in it, so it sparked a google search, and who is the big winner? Reader is the big winner!! We know it’s the summer, and we are typically lazy, but we are going to put some effort our there for you. We got college world series previews, mlb, and music to discuss. Hell, we even have links for you…

(Hot Clicks)-After all of the fist pounding terroristic action, I am completely convinced that Barrack Obama is “The Rock.” Check the Tale of the Tape if the presidential hopeful would match-up if he had to go against “The People’s Champ.”

(Major League Jerk)-We’ll be at the All-Star game, so we might as well look at what some people’s opinions are of the “players that should be there too.”

(All-Star Voting)-Get in your votes for Kei Igawa. I strongly surmase that he will have a solid write-in campaign.

(TBL)-Hot 100 madness. Since that post could use some more pics, we give our reader what he wants…Chicks dude, chicks.

(Fox Sports)-We are dipping into MMA a little, but that sh*t is full of crazies.

(Le Batard)-We don’t know if we like MMA, but we do know we like Kimbo. Plus this hit is sick.
