No, it’s not a McDonald’s advertisement. Simply my response to Game one of today’s doubleheader against the Cards. Z threw a gem and even hit a home run. Talk about the talent out weighing the crazy!
I don’t root for anyone to fail, but I must admit I enjoyed watching Pujols botch that grounder today allowing two Cubs runs to score. He’s catching Obama’s first pitch to start the All-Star Game festivities. Hopefully that one doesn’t get through as well.
Game two tonight, can’t wait. Pulled within 2 1/2 with the win. Would be great to go out 1 1/2 out come the break at the end of the night. Lilly will see an inning or two over the next couple days, everyone else will get some much needed rest. But first, we need to pick up another game against the Cards tonight. Wells on the mound and this kid is hot! Let’s hope he adds another win to his streak….and let’s hope Piniella enforces the ‘use the stairs’ rule…we don’t need any more stupid injuries like Demp’s.
Also feeling good about pledging to fellow MLBlogger Zack Hample‘s charity effort for Pitch In For Baseball. Arguably the BEST ball hawk in the game, Zack is snagging baseballs for charity. You can pledge a certain amount per ball snagged (your choice) and at the end of the World Series, your donation makes it possible for kids all over the world to enjoy, and at time, be introduced to the game of baseball. Sounded like a great cause to me after hanging out with Zack today, so I’m on board! You can be too by clicking here!
