A Few ‘Graph Stories
Coco Crisp's Afro

2M ago
I’ve got some time to kill on this chilly Northern California morning so why not dig into the ol’ cigar box and tell some ‘graph stories? As you may know, my brain is a repository for worthless baseball stats, history, and mythos. Also, please keep in mind that these cards have a very strong and ..read more

Oakland, hola de nuevo

I hadn’t been to Oakland in almost a decade due to living in Los Angeles for what seemed like a lifetime. This visit reminded me that I once knew a girl who lived here with short, blonde, finger-wave style hair done with a sort of Mae West flair… a precious time of pre-internet and seemingly ..read more

As I’m making my coffee in the morning my cat routinely comes into the kitchen and stands next to my legs to greet me, lightly brushing with his tail every so often. I pick up the little critter and set him on the bar to stroke his orange coat for a bit before giving him ..read more

Turn Out The LIghts…The Party’s Over.

I had no delusions of this team winning the division at the beginning of the 2021 season. In the past few days I have read comments comparing Sergio Romo to a white flag, but you’ll see that I wrote on this very blog some months ago that I saw the Romo and Elvis Andrus acquisitions ..read more

Author Almost Swallowed by the Pacific on a Perfectly “Sonny” Day

I remember that day well. I had almost drown while surfing in the hidden cove. The waves took me under and I was thrashing around at the bottom and had no idea which way was up and which way was down. It didn’t matter, as I was being pummeled mercilessly and told myself not to ..read more

2 Dudes Talk About Baseball Movies

 Gary Trujillo: I watched that Field Of Dreams game, and it was really cool from an aesthetic standpoint… and what an ending! I’m not a big fan of the movie though, it’s way too cheesy for my tastes. My favorite baseball movie would have to be Bull Durham because the writing is smart, funny, romantic ..read more

“What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.”― Werner Herzog I’m walking down the street on a main boulevard near a donut shop with two unknown, genderless children. (?) I have been here before, in my waking life. It is the type of place where ..read more

Although much of what I do here is the literary equivalent of digital fish wrap, I recently did a cool and very interesting interview with Matt from Oakland A’s UK. I despise long intros so I’ll let the interview do the talking…also, do yourself a favor and check out the link above if you get ..read more

Trade Deadline and Crappy Baseball Magazines
Coco Crisp's Afro
by Gary Trujillo
1y ago
Here is a cover I “designed” for a little-known and now-defunct baseball magazine (this was around the time magazines were on the cusp of dying, but were still relevant to the average Luddite, tactile enthusiast, or collector of things) that never ran. The editors, or powers that be, said it was too abstract, or artsy ..read more

The ‘Fro goes to a Baseball Game
Coco Crisp's Afro
by Gary Trujillo
1y ago
To everyone’s shock and surprise, yours truly was apparently persuasive enough recently to wrangle a few media credentials for a AAA game on a hot, sticky Saturday night in Round Rock, Texas. My baseball buddy (the female version, not the one that looks like Cheech) had a good laugh at this and was comparing me ..read more
