For those of you familiar with twitter, you know of its addictive properties, and for those of you who don’t know what the hell it is, imagine being able to tell the world that you’re about to sit on the can and… ok, bad example. The best thing I can compare it to is to […]

Just a reminder that Umpbump will be blogging over at MLB Trade Rumors this and every Saturday afternoon, from 2-6 p.m. EST. Today, we’re doing double duty. Sarah took this morning’s shift. Now it’s Alejandro’s turn. Swing by MLBTR and leave a comment!

The traditional second anniversary gift is cotton. So it would be appropriate for Umpbump to offer free t-shirts to all of our loyal readers. Or at least socks.
