What’s the ‘F’ stand for?

An usher at the Iowa Cubs game asked about my “F” hat. So I told him all about the Farley Hawks dynasty. Turns out the guy knows Western Dubuque baseball coach Casey Bryant from his Creston days.

Lee was dealin’

Sometimes you just get beat by a better opponent.

Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee was in top form last night at Dodger Stadium, pitching like his paycheck depended on it.

The Dodgers, meanwhile, looked like a team that pulled an all-night party in the Hollywood Hills and then tried to play a game.

Final score: Phillies 7, Dodgers 0 on a forgettable night at Chavez Ravine.

(For the record, I’m sure the team WASN’T out partying all night…just seemed like a lethargic group of guys last night).

Yasiel Puig: Baseball’s most exciting player

Folks who don’t get to see Yasiel Puig play regularly are really missing out. He’s the most exciting, most interesting, most scintillating player in baseball — by a mile. Puig has sensational talent, and he’s so fun to watch.

Puig stole the show Sunday as the Dodgers beat Arizona again. Click here to read a terrific game story by Los Angeles Times reporter Bill Shaikin.

FoD

Lots of great stuff at DesMoinesRegister.com today on the 25th anniversary of the Iowa premiere of “Field of Dreams.”

That film and that field have a tight grip on my soul. Yesterday, today … and forever.

Holy Cross baseball icon Hank Lucas is interviewed in one of the DMR videos. The former Dodgers farmhand is wearing a Field of Dreams jersey and a Dodgers cap. Made me smile. Hank threw the pitch that almost hit actor Timothy Busfield in the movie.
