Jason Michaels, Waffle House, and Allard Baird's Twin

  • Allard Baird's quest to find his Holy Grail (some big guy who can hit the ball a long way and play right field) added a new name on Friday. According to a story in the Kansas City Star, the Royals are still pursuing Shrek Mench and Austin Kearns, but also have interest in Philadelphia's Jason Michaels. I'm not surprised the Royals are interested in Michaels, because he's a pretty darned good player with solid on-base skills. However, he isn't the type of player who's going to hit 30 homers, so surely he isn't being lumped in with Mench and Kearns, both of whom have hit for significant power in the minor leagues. Michaels is an undervalued player, but he's more Lew Ford than Magglio Ordonez. The Royals need an Ordonez-type hitter, so my preference remains Kearns.

  • My new favorite restaurant is Waffle House, whose slogan "Good Food Fast" could not be more true. Screw the clubs, the bars, and the ice cream places, because this is the perfect hangout for college kids. Hell, I might just go back tonight after I see a late-night showing of Ocean's 12. It was good times, especially since the five of us got some authentic Waffle House paper hats.

  • Another fun look-alike: Actor Linus Roache (left) and Royals GM Allard Baird, who apparently doesn't have but one very small picture on the web …



  • If you have ten minutes to waste, I'd recommend checking out this audio clip from Jim Rome's radio show. Pretty funny stuff if you ask me.

  • As always, everyone have a fantastic weekend. If you need me, I'll be asleep somewhere ...
