…because I’m in Los Angeles for a week, visiting my family.
Fortunately, the Rox are coming out next week so I’ll get to go watch them play. Tulo, of course, will not play, but I bet he’ll take batting practice. In all likelihood, if he sees me, he will take out a restraining order. When he saw me at the last game of the Stros/Rox series, he kind of rolled his eyes. I don’t think he likes me.
OHMIGOD. CLAYTON KERSHAW. Allow me to take a brief girly break and note that HE IS GORGEOUS. And Texan. Ain’t nothin’ wrong with that. GOSH he is adorable.
Now that I’ve finished that…
How about Darin Erstad?! I mean, I knew about his secret life as a Gold Glover (cue superhero theme song) but HONESTLY, that was an amazing play. I saw it on Baseball Tonight and was absolutely astonished. Snaps for Darin!
I’m glad to see Hunter Pence continually proving that the sophomore curse is over! I am very pleased with his recent performance.
What is up with pitchers getting hit by batters lately? First Chris Young’s face gets mooshed and now José Valverde? What the heck?! Poor Chris Young! Just reading about what happened internally made my empty stomach turn. Have I mentioned that I am used to eating breakfast at what would be 3:30 AM here? I’m starving (it’s 9:19).
Ordinarily I would do a Where Is He Now? right here, but the Houston Chronicle absolutely snarfed my idea. So I’ll do an update–Luke Scott hit a two-run homer last night!! Stupid Joseph Duarte.
I have hot pancakes on the table right now so an update after I catch the Dodgers game. Did I mention–no MLB Extra Innings? So even more no-Stros until I get home and have cable.
