I came across something of interest today that I thought I'd share with you.
Someone named Michael Baldwin is trying to put together a census-type map of the USA which shows what regions/cities support which sports teams. It's larger than that, actually -- he also wants to show what the influence of various large cities is, throughout their regions. You can participate here; you don't have to enter any personal info that you don't want to, and the results ought to be interesting.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Williams threw a nice game against the Astros last Sunday at Wrigley Field, getting a win despite issuing six walks. It'd be a nice confidence-builder for him to win two straight against a contending team.
Clemens' record this year is nothing short of bizarre. The Astros have been shut out nine times in Clemens' 31 starts, including five 1-0 shutouts -- and even more oddly, Clemens has five no-decisions for those 1-0 games, meaning he left all of them with the score 0-0.
Time to make that ten shutouts. Clemens has been hurting and hasn't pitched in twelve days; he got pounded for 11 hits by the Pirates, of all teams, on September 19.
Reminder, today's game time has been changed from 7:05 CT to 3:05 CT at the request of Fox-TV. Whether it's on in your area depends on that monkey throwing darts at the map of the USA over at Fox HQ in California.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
