Soooooo. It's not easy building a baseball team. Things like contract negotiations, dumping players for better players etc. I imagine it can be very difficult if you let your emotions influence your decisions. I figure a good general manager has to put his feelings aside when he's doing his job, and this is probably very hard to do when your team is as kick ass as, oh I don't know, Your Boston Red Sox. There's a thin line, and you have to ignore your person feelings and make good business decisions.

However, there are certain situations where your personal feelings are more important than business decisions. Sometimes you just have to do the right thing, even if its not the best business decision on paper.

Let me put it another way. I don't want to win if I have to win with him. We need Mikey Lowell. Its the only way. A-Rod is a loser. He will be a cancer that rots away at the core of this team.

If it wasn't for the fans, there would be no Red Sox. Its normally not a good idea to let the fans make the decisions. But in this case, you owe it to us. We are the only part of the Red Sox that doesn't change. Sometime you have to do what we want you to do. If A-Rod somehow makes it to the Red Sox, we will never accept him. He knocked the ball out of Bronson Arroyo's hand! Our team is amazing, and he doesn't belong anywhere near it. On the other hand, Mike Lowell is the man. He's an amazing team player. And he's an amazing player period.

P.S. Ask me about my free waterbed. Thanks Sox!

OK so yesterday I was thinking of actually writing Conan O'Brien a letter. His show is free but you have to wait in line to try to get in. I was going to politely ask if he could send me a pair of tickets that would somehow guarantee me seats. That way me and a friend could take the train to NYC, go see Conan, and come home all in one night.

And then I watched the news today. Well that plan is out! Why? Because a Priest from, of all places, my town of Stoneham, was arrested at the NBC studios for stalking Conan. The priest was Rev. David Ajemian, and apparently lots of people in town knew the guy? St Pats is the biggest church in town. That's pretty messed up. And everyone's first response so far has been: "But Conan's not a little boy?" heh heh thats funny & true & not funny, all at the same time.

I should start a MySpace group for people from Stoneham who are fans of Conan but are not stalkers.

Yeah I made a MySpace group. Its a group for Stoneham residents that are fans of Conan O'Brien, but whom are not crazy stalkers. Just regular folks :-)

MySpace hates MenuLizard. Why? I have no idea.

They've deleted two of my accounts already. The first one had been around for over a year. It had nearly 10,000 myspace friends on it. I never sent out any spam at all. I didn't leave spam-like comments on other people's profile. I sent out a myspace bulletin once every two weeks, and thats all. And that bulletin was basically just asking people to send me menus. Which by the way, worked. I've gotten a great many menus from people that found me via my Myspace account. So anyway, one day this account was gone.

I emailed them and asked why, but all I got was generic emails, listing a bunch of possible problems and possible solutions. The closest thing I got to an answer was a generic "If your account was deleted by MySpace, please review our Terms of Service in order to better understand our community rules."

So I have no idea why they deleted me, but my user name was available again after that, so I just made a new account. I was back in effect. But a few weeks after that, I was deleted again. I hadn't even gotten around to sending out ANY bulletins yet. I only had about 150 friends I believe. I keep sending Myspace emails asking why they deleted my account. I told them I want to make another account, and I told them that I want to know what I'm doing wrong so I can STOP doing it and my account won't get deleted anymore. I've send them several emails and all I get in return are generic auto response type emails.

So I have no idea what it is that I'm doing wrong. There are a million myspace accounts out there that are not specifically for an individual, and they never get deleted. I know I have one for my Computer Repair Company, though it's not set up yet. But I do have another myspace for my FellsBiker web site and my WhatsMyIP website. Neither of those have ever been deleted. Not to mention the countless bike shops, bike manufacturer, restaurant, and all the other myspace accounts out there that you see all the time, that are not for individuals, that never get deleted.

I'm very angry at Myspace. I'd just forget all about it, if it wasn't such a powerful tool for promotion.
