Originally from Boston, comedian Gary Gulman now resides in New York City. Gary has been a scholarship college football player, an accountant, a barista, a doorman, a waiter and a high school teacher. These days he is one of the most popular touring comedians in America and one of only a handful of comics to perform on every single late night comedy program. The Village Voice raves “Gary will be the next giant Ex-Bostonian comic to break huge…CK, Burr, Gulman:  You heard it here first…” He’s made three TV specials and currently has three live comedy albums available for purchase on Amazon. Gulman recently marked his 20-year anniversary in stand-up with the “It’s About Time” tour, selling out theaters throughout the country. It’s no wonder the New York Times wrote that Gary is “finally being recognized as one of the country’s strongest comedians”. Gulman will be performing at the Denver Comedy Works from January 26th to January 28th, and we are extremely grateful to have him as our guest today in this exclusive edition of 10 questions.  Continue reading

AL East Offseason Moves

Post by  – Pigpen

Done with the National League, we kick of our review of the American League with a look at the perennial juggernaut: The East.  Lists were originally published by MLB Trade Rumors.

Orioles

  • Acquired/Re-signed: Chad Moeller, Michel Hernandez, Armando Gabino, Craig Tatum, Kevin Millwood, Mike Gonzalez, Garrett Atkins, Chris Lamb, Frank Mata, Alfredo Simon, Mike Hinckley, Ross Wolf, Chris George, Scott Moore, Josh Perrault, Miguel Tejada.
  • Lost: Sean Henn, Jeff Fiorentino, Danys Baez, Radhames Liz, Chris Ray, Steven Johnson, Bob McCrory, Chris Waters

The O’s first move this offseason was landing Texas workhorse Kevin Millwood, trading former closer of the future Chris Ray to get him.  A fine addition for the O’s as their pitchers only averaged 5.4 innings per start last season, whereas Millwood went 6.4.

Without a viable backend bullpen option left (goodbye Sherrill, Ray, and Baez), the O’s turned to former Brave Mike Gonzalez.  Why, exactly?  This team is not going to compete next year whether they have Mo Rivera, or me closing games for them.  Maybe they’re not hoping to compete next year; but rather, in 2011, when their young studs (Markakis, Jones, Reimold, Wieters, Tillman) and a few of these guys could form a really solid roster.

As I’ve said before, Garrett Atkins stinks.  Thankfully the O’s plan to play him at 1st in light of…a Miguel Tejada reunion!  Are we excited?  Tejada enjoyed success in Houston, but ONLY in Houston.  On the road, he was terrible.  That said, a one year deal gives Josh Bell another season in the minors before presumptively manning the hot corner for years to come.
