Off Day Offerings

Here are a few good links for an off day.  Enjoy!

Big League Stew points out a web site dedicated to the over-hype of Matt Wieters.   Here is just one of the many "facts" posted there:  "Matt Wieters Is A Six-Tool Player- The Sixth Tool Is AWESOMENESS."  We need more about him, don't we?  Thank goodness there's no such Luke Scott site.  Actually, maybe there is, I just don't want to know about it.

Hazaa author J. Ellet Lambie gets the ultimate get:  an informal/impromptu chat with Milt Wilcox.  Jealousy rears its ugly head.

Baltimore Sun blogger Peter Schmuck agreed with me about pitching to Luke Scott:

"I'm pretty sure Tigers manager Jim Leyland has told his pitchers that the next fastball strike anybody throws to Scott will result in some particularly gruesome form of corporal punishment."

I was hoping for a series of intentional walks to Scott on Sunday, but instead Jackson showed him who's boss.   That works too!

 Verlander is up for Clutch Performer of the Month--from Beck's Blog.  Vote early, vote often.

Boston tomorrow.  Who's ready?
