I must be slow. I checked and thought "what is he talking about?" My ah-ha moment came a moment later. Those Seals are a formidable club.

The organization backing the Seals has been fielding World Series champs for centuries now.

Those Seals are one tough unit.

In a different incarnation, but on-topic, Joe Dimaggio played for the San Francisco Seals before heading to the Yankees.

Indeed. A rough week for baseball.

On The Sports Reporters yesterday, Mitch Albom suggested that a first offense for DUI should result in automatic jail time. Can't say as I disagree.

Unbelievable. Mark Fidrych has passed away, apparently from an accident involving him working on his truck. Posted Image I hope there are those on this Board who remember him from the mid-1970s. His antics and his eccentricities/idiosyncracies were legendary.

Count me as among those who remember his antics well.

So short a career...but such an impact on our generation of baseball fans. What a personality.

How the hell did the Royals manage to hold onto a talent like Grienke? I've watched this kid pitch several times, and when he is one, he's like watching a young Greg Maddux. It's not fireball and tons of strikeouts, but his pitch sequence is mesmerizing... to go from a fastball to this goofy 54MPH pitch that you wonder how it gets across the plate. It's rare you see a player swing and it seems like forever before the ball crosses the plate.

Fun time at the k today.

This is very sad news. I have very fond memories of Mark Fidrych, having grown up in SE Michigan during his time here. I'll never forget our family's trip to Florida in the 1977. We stayed with the Tigers at the Holiday Inn in Lakeland, and Mark's motel room was just below ours. I have a picture somewhere of him waving to us as he entered his room. We were driving back to Michigan when we heard on the radio that he had injured his knee shagging balls in the outfield. It was the beginning of the injuries that ended his too brief career.

I still have an autographed baseball from that spring training visit that has many Tigers on it, including Mark Fidrych.

He died way too young. RIP, Bird.

Mike F. and Scott,

Hey, thanks for the pics / memories. I am a BoSox fan since way back when, and Fidrych was a very engaging personality to this 'non-Tiger' fan. He was a lot of fun to watch on the mound. In retrospect, I now wish I had paid more attention than I did when he was pitching.

Here's a pitching memory from last night.

Nick Swisher pitches the bottom of the 8th in last night's Rays/Yankees blowout. Swisher had been in the game at first base before he moved to the mound.

Video is okay, audio sucks but is understandable. Announcers are Michael Kay, David Cone & John Flaherty.

I always enjoy when odd things like this happen.

They mentioned on ESPN this morning that Swisher was the best pitcher the Stanks had last night. Posted Image (Maybe the Red Sox should've been trying to sign him instead of Texiera!)

And the AL East is truly backwards at this point. Posted Image

But it's only April, and the Orioles always get off to a good start, before coming back to earth (more like buried into the earth).

Okay...now I'm ticked off.

MLB has just suspended Josh Beckett six games for throwing high & tight to Bobby Abreu in the Sox/Angels series this weekend.

He wasn't even thrown out of the game!

Three different Angels were (including Mike Scoscia).

Put aside the fact that I'm due @ Fenway Saturday (Beckett's next scheduled start)...but that's crazy! He'll probaly appeal (and pitch Saturday)...but if you saw the play the umpire granted Abreu time just as Beckett was beginning his wind-up. I'm not even sure why the Angels were so apoplectic about the incident.

Sorry about your tickets, but I'm happy a Red Sox has finally received some punishment.
