Guy Love: Mets Baseball Version

If you haven't seen the Scrubs Episode, "My Musical", then you are missing out BIG TIME. It's basically Scrubs in musical form. Anyways, the best song of the musical is a little ditty about the special friendship of JD and Turk, who act more like a married couple than Turk and his own wife. Anyways, my pal Jim wanted to see Wright + Reyes = <3 and well, I think this works. Who would star in the Red Sox' version? If it was 2004, no doubt it'd be Manny and Millar. However, this year, I think it'd be......Beckett and Papelbon, perhaps? IT could be anybody on the team.

Coco and Lowell's Bad Day

This is inspired by Lowell's postgame reaction to his 3-error night on the second game of the season. The basic story is that Lowell was eating an ice cream sandwich to cheer himself up, like comfort food. So then came the imagery of Lowell and Coco, who I always seem to like to see together kinda like Statler and Waldorf on the Muppets, all snarky and stuff. Well this time, they're more effeminate, eating ice cream in their pajamas and watching Lifetime. I can't help it, I just had to do it. Though I'm sure this is what Orlando Hudson does after a bad day(he admitted to watching Lifetime before!).

Schilling's Big Mouth and Hinske's Remorse

No, boys and girls, you are not just seeing things. I am actually back with more artpads. It's shocking, I know. But I kinda felt that with the new season full steam ahead and a long break time to not only just get my head straight after last November(personal ish) but to also perfect the drawing of Matsuzaka, which still needs some help, and to get more ideas. I got a few with the help of some friends. Anyways, this first one was requested from my good pal Patti, who was amused at the whole scene in the dugout today of Matsuzaka listening to Schilling talk and such. This is a two parter with part one being Matsuzaka grumbling and Schilling blabbing on. Part two is the remorse of Eric Hinske leaving him there. Anyways, good to be back. Oh and I was experimenting a bit of some fonts since I need to add my own now because the stupid thing gives the boring ass Arial font.

Manny and his New Workout Regime

Okay I confess, I drew this only because the thought of Manny in a tutu cracked me up. That's Tito and Papi talking. I almost used an exchange that was also used in the Dugout where Tito was "How can..." and Papi goes "Don't ask me the questions I don't know the answers to". But that had to do with the elliptical machine somehow bearing resemblance to the Quaker Oatmeal Guy. But plagarism sucks, so I didn't :) Just Manny Being Manny.

One Time in Boston...

Whenever I hear about Bronson in Cincinatti, he's always waxing poetic on his time in Boston. I keep getting this feeling that Bronson is like the Band Camp Girl on American Pie except substitute Band Camp with Boston. And yes, he's about just as much a nympho, according to the pictures that floated around. I just seem him talking all about Boston nonstop to teh point of his teammates wanting to shut him up. Add in Gonz' arriving, and methinks those two are gonna piss off everybody else on the team with their Boston Love. Ohhh good times, good times. But this is just my opinion

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

This is self explanatory. Kinda lame, but I'm getting back into the swing of things w/ the artpads. This was originally meant to be Papelbon looking at his calendar and getting all pissed off, but then I started to add a wintry setting and because Papelbon isn't one of my best drawn players, it became just some silly fan. And honestly, I'm getting kinda antsy because I'm not really into football and

But the good news for Red Sox fans is that there are about 27 or so days until Pitchers and Catchers Report. :D I'll try to do a countdown of some sort by player number or some ish. Oh the title of this is from the song "The Waiting"-Tom Petty and the heartbreakers

Bill Mueller: One of 25

Yes. I am back. Yeah I was hoping to be back by Thanksgiving but finals + socialization kinda got me all out of whack with everything. My bad folks. But I return with one of the "One of 25 Series" This is Bill Mueller. Mueller is one of the unsung heroes of the 2004 season, IMO, the catalyst of the entire season. He saved the season not once, but THREE times. Once in early July when the Red Sox blew a 7 run lead but then won on a walkoff double. The second time...the Brawl Game. That's all that needs to be said. Teh final time was during the playoffs. We all know the series of events by heart. He retired this year so I say good luck to him and I hope he's happy with his career :)

Oh and I joined the MLB Bloggers network. So if you come via there, Hey! I'm not like all wound up in mad art skillz but I'm not half bad. Even with manual drawing too!

On an Official Hiatus

Due to unforseen circumstances, Pine Fresh Shenanigans: The Artpad Files will be on hiatus until at least Thanksgiving. There's been some things that have happened within my family and honestly, I'm not really in the mood to be doing them up right now. Thanks for understanding and I should be back around Thanksgiving or so.

Take care!

Ken Rosenthal at the Winter Meetings

In case you don't know, Ken Rosenthal is a columnist for Last year during the winter meetings, he seemed to have all the big scoops way before anybody else. Anyways the always fabulous CN and I had a running joke that Rosenthal would hide in the closets of certain GMs and be all vouyeristic and overhear all the deals and stuff. And because everybody probably gossips about everybody else, I think Rosenthal only really needs to stay in at least one closet. And yes, my mind is very cracked.

Papi and the Thanksgiving Phone Calls

As I've said before, Papi can cook. I'd like to think that he gets called on a constant basis by teammates about cooking tips for Thanksgiving. And yes, I know Papi is Dominican but his wife is from Wisconsin, so methinks he's celebrated Thanksgiving before. Also, I love the thought of his teammates/former teammates calling him up and asking him for tips and he's all like helpful and comes through for them in the clutch, just like he does on the field :)

Gary Sheffield and his Negociating Tactics

I drew this the day before Sheffield got traded to the Tigers. I read an article about a pissed off Gary Sheffield staking out Steinbrenner at an IHOP. I'd like to think that the negociation process went a little like this. Steinbrenner, I hear has a bit of an affinity for pancakes and this certain IHOP. Simple and to the point.

Untold Stories from the 2006 Season: Tagged and Marked

Ever gotten drunk and passed out and had peopel write on you? Yeah. That's what this is all about. Simple concept, interesting results, and some gay innuendo. Has this actually happened? Nahhh. But it's still fun to think about. I'm a total jerk to Beckett in my artpads I have come to notice. My bad Beckett, I like you and all, but I think of you as a cocky pottymouthed hothead....but you're probably a cool guy anyway. Oh and panel 1 was supposed to be a lampshade

Manny Del and Papelbon go on the Bumper Boats

Honestly, I've had no attention span today. This idea came to me thanks to the always fabulous Brandee who came up w/ an idea of Manny Del and Papel mini-golfing. Now my mind wandered over towards the Bumper Boats, as they are very popular with people in Adventureland(minigolf place in my town) Also, the idea of Manny Del falling into the bumper boat pool is based on a true story. Didn't happen to me though.
