Good morning, fellow chatters. I don't know why I ever pick Georgetown to do anything in my brackets. At least they were taken down by a Kenyon man. Oh, well. Here are some links to ponder this morning.
Derrek Lee? Could it be? Also, check out Buck's choice words for Luuuuke and the Adequate Mr. Fox.
...and I'm targeting an ideal weight of 185.
So, that's Weaver, Torre, Buck, Willie Randolph and John Russell in camp all at once. Am I missing anyone? I mean, that's a lot of managerial brainpower
I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of Garrett Olson.
Heath's wrap up of the week in camp offers a nice breakdown of the positional battles.
In that case of Statheads v. Fox, Mr. Gleeman for the prosecution.
With the Earl of Baltimore in camp, I thought this was kind of a neat added dose of old schoolishness.
Finally, happy birthday to former pitching prospect Rocky Coppinger. It's also the birthday of Skyrocket Smith, a Baltimore native who played ball in the late 1890s for the Des Moines Prohibitionists, the Louisville Colonels and the Walla Walla Walla Wallas (i can't make this stuff up folks). Belated happy birthday to Craig Tatum, who turned 28 on Friday.
