I went to the mall.
OK, I'm weird. But I needed some new shoes, and bought some, and a couple of shirts at the Gap. Yeah, like you care.
By the time I got back there was trouble with my cable, and also with the Internet line, and I had to get someone from the cable company to come fix it.
Thus, I missed all of this apparently ugly 9-3 loss to the White Sox in Tucson today. I see Aramis Ramirez homered again. Glendon Rusch -- well, he sucked, allowing the first four batters to reach and then coughing up Joe Crede's first homer of the spring.
It was supposed to rain today, but the sun has been out nearly all day -- though it's quite a bit cooler (mid 60's) than it was yesterday. There's a forecast of rain again tomorrow. Carlos Zambrano returns to throw against the Rangers at Mesa; I'm going to go to the split-squad game against the A's at Phoenix.
Till then, here, at last, are the photos from yesterday.
