Mega-Mix Monday

seatbelt.jpgHello, and welcome to what I’ve been told is a “new” week. In order to celebrate this milestone, I will finally cease my coverage of the 2009 Baseball Winter Meetings.

Instead, I will focus on that which I neglected while I was suffering from Indianapolis overload. So (metaphorically) buckle your (metaphorical) seat belts, because it’s going to be a slightly bumpy ride.

New Logo! – I wrote a story about this on MiLB.com last week, but the new Florida State League franchise in Bradenton announced its name and logo.

Behold, the Bradenton Marauders!

As soon as you are done beholding, feel free to move on the next item of interest…

Holiday Photos! — Teams all over the country have been engaging in seasonal activities as of late. Teams such as the Lexington Legends, who sent out the following ragtag crew to spread some yuletide cheer:

Moving on from holiday photos to holiday video, check out the West Virginia Power’s latest offering. It stars velvety-voiced Andy “Bull” Barch, who recently announced that he will not be returning to the club in 2010. This will leave a void not only in the broadcast booth, but also in the crucial area of holiday-themed parody videos.   

And since we’re on the topic of “West Virginia Power” and “videos”, now is as good a time as any to share the following. I mean, why not, right?

Finally, I am going to indulge a common reader request and share a series of photos that, in their entirety, depict a mascot somersault. The mascot in question is Splash of the Stockton Ports.

And that’ll do it for this edition of “Mega-Mix Monday”. According to my calculations, there will be just two more blog posts to come in 2009. Savor them.
