What the hell's with all the old men kicking ass this year?  Damn...

Clemens, Kevin Brown, Glavine, and obviously Bonds.  Sheesh, has this become an old farts game, or what?  These guys are incredible testaments for keeping yourself in shape, and for proving that the young punks in today's game aren't really all that.  I'm stoked for Clemens, annoyed with Bonds, and pissed with Kevin Brown (since we traded him to the Yanks for NOTHING).  Regardless, it's fun to watch, and good for baseball that these geriatric patients are still hangin' around...
As much as I was ticked off at Clemens for coming back after he said he was going to retire, you've got to respect him.  He's able to spend a lot more time with his family, so you've got to be happy for the guy.  AND, he's still churning out good starts, all while closing in on Steve Carlton's position as second on the all-time strikeout record list.

Kevin Brown is turning out to be a great acquisition, especially since the Yanks were able to part ways with Jeff Weaver.  If you want to blame anyone for the deal, blame the Dodgers for wanting to dump salary by making the trade in the first place.  Brown has turned out some great performances thus far.  Plus, now that he's got some offense and not the Dodgers, I see his W-L record going up this year.

Dodgers and Angels are still playing pretty well, which is cool.  Can't figure out WTF is going on down in Florida still, with that crew of no-namers.  Almost the same can be said for the Twinkies right now.  Those clowns better slow their butts down too, 'cause I don't want Scott to be able to talk too much smack this season.
Well, I've got tickets to see the Yanks take on the Angels in a couple of weeks.  I'm curious to see how Vlad and Colon are going to mesh with that team.

The Sox are still up there too, so Matt, Mikey, and Jim must be pretty happy these days.  Just don't get your hopes up too much fellas, 'cause after all - they're still the Red Sox...   ;)   :P

True.  It's only May.  There's a full 5 months of baseball to play, and it's only going to get more interesting.  One of the most interesting stories to come out in the past couple of days?  Pedro Martinez suspending contract extension talks with the BoSox, and saying he's going to test the free-agency waters come the offseason.  That, and him getting rocked by the Rangers of all teams last night had to bring a smile to my face.  But as much as I think the Yanks might be interested in Pedro in the offseason, I sincerely hope they don't pursue him.  He comes across like he's a cancer in the clubhouse.  Do you really need someone like that?  Especially when they come at the price of $17.5 million a year?  No thanks.

Is the anti-GNT thing blatant enough?

Truth be told, the Gungan that I really want is the one that was packed in with the Fambaa!  While I do in fact have 4 Fambaa's, I've never opened any of them, so I'd like to get this Gungan loose if possible.  And if anyone is wondering what you do with 4 Fambaa's, it's for when I'm able to have a ping-pong table sized display of the Gungans battling the Trade Federation on Naboo.

Well, they said that the helmet was one of the included accessories.  The Naboo Royal Security guard had a hat, while the Naboo Royal Guard had a helmet.

Hmmm, this seems to be going down a certain, uncomfortably familiar path.

That list makes me think that Toy Biz should make at least a couple of Avengers box sets.  There's so many to pick from, after all.

When is the Kingpin going to get his due in this line?  He's a core villain for Spiderman, Daredevil & the Punisher.  Come on, already!

Just a quick question for everyone:  has there been any more indication about whether or not the red trimmed Unleashed Clone Trooper is the real deal?

I can't believe the Twinkies let LaTroi Hawkins go.  The guy throws some heat!  But his new club, the Cubbies aren't doing that well.

Yes, Bonds is no longer covered by the CBA with regards to merchandising.  His personal representatives now negotiate his merchandising on a case by case basis.

As for the Cooperstown series, you nailed it right on the head.  McFarlane had to negotiate the player likeness rights with the players themselves.  Then, I believe the existing deal they have with MLB lets them reproduce the uniforms.

There's been no secret about the Ryan and Canseco figures.  McFarlane showed the Ryan off as one of the first pieces that was sculpted for this line.  The holdup was because of Ryans retirement, and he wasn't covered in McFarlane's agreement with MLBPA.

Found Faramir, Merry and the Morgul Lord Witch King today.  NICE!

That is just insane luck, although kayaking in McCovey cove is a good recipe for getting a Bonds hit ball.
