So today was my last day of school for this semester! Passed all my classes! Good first semester for my sophomore year. So i'm going to expand past my blog title today and do some interesting ranting here about my deep, seething anger over the American League MVP award this year (yes, I follow baseball, mostly the Angels).
So explain to me why a Triple Crown winner, who defiantly had a remarkable season, to say the least, beat out Mike Trout. Look at it this way: Miguel Cabrera had played in the MLB for how long? And then one guy who has never played in the MLB for longer than a few weeks shows up and earns stats close, equal, or much, much higher than his in less time. And helped his team get remarkably better. So what if he had a hard end of the season, it wasn't his fault the Angels lost out of the playoffs. Blame that on the Oakland A's and their pitching troubles. But considering what Trout pulled off this season, I'm amazed the voting wasn't closer for these two players. It should have been nearly 50-50 in the voting, yet Cabrera had almost what, 75% of the votes? When Cabrera can beat Trout around the bases, I'll accept his possession of this award, regardless of his triple crown.
Well, i'm also going to start a system of selecting a professional hockey player for the week and one Minecraft map seed for the week as well. If you don't play that game, try it out...join our group of 8,372,469 and counting people who play the game.
Player of the Week: Jacob Markstrom (Named CCM AHL Player of the Week)
From InGoal Magazine:
San Antonio Rampage goaltender Jacob Markstrom made a great impression onInGoal Magazine during back-to-back wins in Abbotsford last week, combining a more controlled style with his exceptional athleticism to backstop wins over the AHL-leading Heat on consecutive nights.
“Right now I am just trying to learn,” Markstrom told InGoal after. “You don’t want over movement because when you over move you are going to open holes. So I want less movement but at the same time I have a kind of desperation in my game too and I need that. I’m trying to mix that. I don’t have huge rules, but I have some now, and at the end of the day it’s just save the puck.”
From Minecraft Seeds:
This seed spawns you in an NPC village right next to a desert temple at (x=-375, z=250). Further back from the temple at (x=-460, z=265) there is a surface spider dungeon.
