B.B. King

There's no point in trying to write a coherent blog entry tonight. I'm fairly certain that now that Barry has hit #715, the internet is going to be shut down as there will no longer be any use for it. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. For what it's worth, here were my notes on the day...

-Bud Selig has announced that home run #715 for Barry Bonds will come with an asterisk afterall. Not because of any steroid scandal, but rather because it came off of Byung-Hyun Kim aka, "the human batting tee."

-I'm sure I'm reading too much into this, but did anyone else notice that hardly any of Bonds' teammates came out to greet Barry after his homerun? Either they've grown tired of the Bonds circus or all the guys in the dugout were just pissed because they had dates in June in their Bonds pool.

-Jason Bay hit his 10th HR in 10 days against the Astros. If he continues his one a day pace, he will hit #715 early in the 2010 season, 637 games from today. Of course, if he continues to hit one a day, then by 2010, he'll be making 50 mil a year. So he'll either be playing for the Yankees or Mark Cuban's Pirates. By the way, the Padres trading Jason Bay and Oliver Perez for Brian Giles looks like one of the worst trades of the last decade (hopefully that will be the subject of its own blog if I ever get around to writing a column that requires some of that "research" stuff).

-Speaking of which...the Minnesota Twins won their 3rd consecutive game today with a 4-3 victory over Seattle. The winning pitchers of those three games were Joe Nathan, Boof Bonser, and Francisco Liriano. The three pitchers are now a combined 7-0 with 7 saves, a 2.69 ERA and 79 Ks in 60 1/3 innings. What do they all have in common? They were all acquired from the SF Giants for AJ Pierzynski, who was later released by the Giants after one season. (Sorry to Zach of The Big Picture. I promise this will be the last time I mention that trade. Well, at least until I get around to writing my "worst trades" blog post. But if you just skip the "#1" entry, you won't have to worry about reading it.)

-Here's a little tip to anyone that finds themselves announcing a women's college softball game. If one team happens to be performing very well during that game, you should not describe the women as "feeling the flow," as one ESPN announcer did over the weekend. Just trust me on this one.

-During what I can only assume was called "Operation Buzzkill," Miami Beach police arrested 557 partiers between Thursday morning and Saturday night, mostly for intoxication and disorderly conduct. Amongst those 557 was Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas (charged with resisting without violence) who reportedly said, "You can't arrest me. I'm a basketball player." I'd like to think that police responded by saying, "Well that depends. Have you ever won a playoff series?"

-Dallas took back home court advantage with a 95-88 victory of the Phoenix Suns. The Suns really only scored 88 points? Are we sure they didn't only play 3 qtrs Sunday? The Mavs now have regained homecourt advantage, meaning it's up to Phoenix to hold serve at home from this point forward if we want to realize the dream of seeing the hot chick that sits behind Mike D'Antoni in Dallas televised for four games in this series.

-Finally, Ricky Williams signed a one-year contract for $240,000 with the Toronto Argonauts after he was misinformed that the C in CFL stands for "cannabis."

With his new Argoanut teammates, R. Jay Soward and Bernard Williams, both suspended from the NFL for drugs, "Ricky and the Argonauts" bring a whole new meaning to "sailing the high seas"...
