Last year, I exchanged "Five Questions" with other SBNation bloggers on big series. I had intended to do this with Larry at Viva El Birdos before this series started, but little things like a business trip to NYC got in the way.
We finally did get it done last night; you can read my answers to his questions here. And here are mine for him and his replies:
Q: What's wrong with Albert Pujols? I was astounded to see him hitting .190 coming into the series.
My interest is purely selfish - I managed to corral Preston Wilson's 2 run homer in the 7th inning out on Waveland. Thanks to the bleacher expansion, I'm pretty sure there's no camera coverage of my catch, but seeing as how I dropped it at first, that's probably a good thing. Still, I'd like to have a copy of the game anyway.
Please let me know. I'd be happy to swap you a blank tape/disc in return. Thanks.
p.s. After my error, I had to outrun that guy in the hotdog costume for it. It got pretty brutal - he threw relish on me so I kicked him in the buns...
|Today's Starting Pitchers
As I noted yesterday, I worry a bit about Marquis being too keyed up to throw against his former teammates today. The best thing for him to do would be to pretend it's the Nationals out there. Hey, they wear red uniforms too, right?
Here's today's Mediacenter. The game is on Fox-TV with that odd 2:55 CT starting time, which, of course, means that the choice of where the game is carried is left up to a couple of monkeys. The monkeys will foist the Yankees/Red Sox on most of the country, but I'd suspect at least much of the Central time zone will get the Cub/Cardinal game.
Posting this early as Mark has his first baseball game of the spring this morning at Thillens Stadium on the far north side; heading right from there to Wrigley Field. It is, as the old saying goes, a beautiful day for baseball!
Discuss amongst yourselves.
