Remember how Aramis Ramirez used to swing?
I mean...aych ay are dee.
That guy blew out a shoulder fielding a grounder - I have no idea how he didn't do something worse while swinging a bat.
And now Junior Lake.
I mean, he hasn't actually hurt himself or anything, but every time I watch him swing I think he's gonna come apart, which inspired this art here.
Yesterday he struck out twice and went 0 for 5.
He's been around long enough now for teams to figure the holes in the swing, so it's that adjustment thing he's got to work on.
I don't know if you heard, but Ryne Sandberg was managing the other team yesterday, and his team was losing nothin' to five.
Like half way to the slaughter rule.
But that crafty Ryno - he knows a thing or two about coming back.
Cubs lose it in the 9th when Kevin Gregg gives up the winner on a single to 36 year old leadoff hitter Michael Young, who had 3 other hits including a double.
Odd but totally cool seeing Sandberg managing a big league game, even if it's the Phillies.
The Pirates beat the Cards 5 to nothin and now they're tied at 78-56 with the Reds 3 1/2 back.
It'll be so refreshing if the Pirates can keep it up.
And finally, the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks lost to the AZ Wildcats in Tuscon 35 - zip, so everything stays normal in Flagstaff.
