    vote for yu!!!

  • ‘Lotta Sports’s AL Votes went to Yu! W-L 10-5 ERA 3.59 K 117 … I went against the grain on the NL. Hitting the cycle TWICE in two weeks — It’s a no-brainer for Aaron Hill!

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
