Saturday's Mid-Day Reading
Shhhhh. Keep it down. We don't want to wake Chico before it's time to go to the park. Games that end at 1:25 a.m. are just about the worst for a Post writer because that's right about the witching hour for making the final edition. I'm sure Chico will have some pregame reflections for us but in the meantime I found a few items of interest.
The Chiefs lost again Friday to Rochester, so that's an 0-2 start. Looks like Balester had a bad fourth inning (this story is from the Democrat and Chronicle so not so much about the Chiefs as the Wings in it. Still looking for the Syracuse paper's story, but here's the box score.
The P-Nats start 0-2 with another loss to Lynchburg. The Senators lost 2-1 to dread foe Reading. Hagerstown beat Lake County, 4-2, in 10 innings.
Interesting Q&A with Gary Sheffield on the Fish Bytes blog.
It's not the most contentious bow in the news this week, but apparently the Tigers had reps of the Big 3 take the field for the first pitch along with Kid Rock, who bowed to them. (They were apparently line workers, not executives.) Took me a minute to find Kid in this photo. He looks like SOMEBODY in these glasses -- somebody other than Kid Rock -- but I can't quite think of who it is. Garth from "Wayne's World"? This is really bugging me. Thoughts?
Tom Seaver has first-pitch honors at Citi Field, says the New York Post. ... Pirates Manager John Russell has surgery for gout. ... Despite that horrible line drive to the head, Giants pitcher Joe Martinez may be back within a month.
ESPN will debut a new commercial Monday featuring Albert Pujols. Not their best, but not bad.
There was some discussion the other day about fitness and pitching and the program Nolan Ryan has brought to the Rangers. Wanted to be sure you all saw this Dallas Morning News Q&A with Ryan on the topic. (I'm guessing when Nolan Ryan tells you to do something, you do it. Who's going to argue?)
