So much for Perfection-Fueled momentum!
Stat of the Day
The White Sox are 15-5 in games started by Mark Buehrle, 35-42 in games started by the less-perfect members of their rotation.
Solution: Let Mr. Perfect start every game.
The Balder Truth
Attention, President Obama! Attention, Lou Piniella!
The guy who made The Perfect Catch is DeWayne Wise ... as in "Hey, youse wise guys!"
His name's not "Weiss." So stop calling him that!
Quote of the Day
"I guess if we're not scoring runs, then he hasta figure out a way to drive 'em in himself." - Reds manager Dusty Baker after Friday's starting pitcher, Aaron Harang, an .090 career batter, hit his first home run since high school in Cinci's loss to the Cubs.
THE BALDEST TRUTH
After crying poor despite their loyal fans filling their ballpark day after day, season after season, the Cardinals finally have gone on a shopping spree.
Matt Holliday has joined Julio Lugo and Mark DeRosa to surround Albert Pujols in the batting order. And in the first game with the new lineup, the Redbirds put an 8-spot on the Phillies.
Now, if only the Cards have a few pennies left over for Roy Halladay to join their rotation - and to give them a roster including both Halladay and Holliday. What a jolly holiday that would be, eh?
You know, spending billionaires' money is one of my favorite hobbies.
