Me and the boyfriend have been apartment-hunting, and are currently on a demoralizing 0-for-21 slide. That’s right, 21 apartments viewed so far and 0 leases to show for it. So, I’m doing what any good manager would do: benching us. Clearly, what is needed here is a day to clear the head. And how better to clear said head than with some good hardball linkage?
First, Baseball Reference’s Stat of the Day blog has a quick take on winning with no hits, as the Dodgers did last night.
SportsbyBrooks weighs in on the issue that wouldn’t die: the unkillable pink Red Sox hat debate.
Towel Drills has the Ozzie Guillen-Lou Piniella “rap” commercial, which I hadn’t seen yet. It’s horrifying, and it makes me grateful that Boston only has one baseball team.
Half Street Blues has the news of a rather interesting (read: desperate) marketing ploy from the offices of the Washington Nationals: today’s first 10,000 fans who bring in any non-Nats baseball merch and trade it for a free Nationals hat, the one with the curly little “W” that looks like a pig’s tail.
In this week’s Metro column, I assess Curt Schilling‘s HOF chances.
Razzball has an “interview” with “Spike Lee.”
Balls, Sticks, & Stuff has some simple steps to “Phix the Phils.”
“Eyre placed on DL,” begins the headline of this MLB.com piece. Naturally, I supplied the rest in the blink of an eye: “Expected to be out at least six weeks with malnutrition, exposure to typhus, smoke inhalation, and a broken heart. Will return only when Mr. Rochester finally calls.”
Do you often hear ghostly voices crying your name over the lonely moors? Tell me about it!
