I can't believe how busy I've been this week. I've been completely swamped with work and school. Big conference next week and I'll be back in San Diego the week after for graduation and some much needed rest. Let's shake the bag and see what comes out...
First off, from last night:
Mike Cameron is to Pirates bullpen, what lawnmower is to grass. For the record, I don't see what the big deal is in getting all of our guys swinging at once. Wouldn't we rather have enough of our guys swinging at once?
- Peavy, Germano, David Wells, Chris Young and Greg Maddux. Perfect. I think that's what everybody's been saying should be the rotation anyway.
- Mentioned before, but Padres pick up Bocachica off of waivers. Translated, "boca" means "mouth", but it also can mean "inlet" like a passageway to something. So this guy's name translates roughly to "way to the ladies". ROWR
- Matt Bush will be turned into a pitcher. You get every chance once you have money invested in you. I don't care if my watch doesn't tell time. I'm wearing it because you have no idea how much I paid for this thing.
- Tony the Gwynn has a crush on Barry Bonds. If it's good enough for the Gwynn, then it's good enough for the Dex. Mmmmmmmm, Wheaties! I seriously bought a box. If Wheaties wants to challenge me, then I want to step up to the challenge.
Update [2007-6-1 10:26:24 by Dex]: Adrian Gonzalez to be interviewed on ESPN First Take today. ESPN has such a San Diego bias.
Update [2007-6-1 11:36:22 by Dex]: Forgot to credit FanGraphs for the chart. Really great info on the site if you're like me and enjoy charts.
