A very PH4H trade.....

The Calgary Vipers have traded pitcher John Odom to the Laredo Broncos for....

Pat Sajak Bobblehead Giveaway

If anyone's near Bowie on Sunday, they can they stop by the Baysox game to get a Pat Sajak bobblehead.

What this has to do with minor league baseball, I haven't quite figured out.

This would not be a good day in the PH4H league

Just wanted to point out that my alma mater has the awesomest baseball player ever:

The Seminoles catcher played all nine defensive positions -- and hit a grand slam -- in a 10-0 seven-inning victory over Savannah State on Monday.

Only one of these is supposed to be funny

  1. Speaking of The Onion, have you all seen their article about Ryan Zimmerman hitting a ball into the Capitol Rotunda?

"30 Years of Man's Life Disappear in Mysterious 'Kansas Rectangle'"

The Onion features a front-page story about Kansas this week. Makes me think back to wanting to steal the "Leaving Kansas" signs they post as you exit the state—to make you feel good about leaving, I suppose. Other highlights of the drive across the state, which apparently I should be glad I survived:

  • Billboards advertising the world's largest prairie dog and a six-legged steer. It's a big tourist destination.
  • A sign at a (closed) western Kansas gas station that read, "This station guarded by shotgun three nights per week. You guess which three."
