I told some co-workers one time that Carlos Zambrano would hit .275 with 20 home runs if he played every day. They respectfully disagreed.
Whatever the case, the Cubs pitcher can really swing the bat. He went 3-for-3 yesterday and drove in a run. His batting average is .375 this season.
Over in Philly, starting pitcher Cliff Lee had two hits and drove in three runs in yesterday.
I think the DH should be in both leagues, but if more pitchers could hit like Carlos and Cliff, I might change my opinion.
Had a nice visit the night before last with pals Mark and Tommy, here at the house.
Jill made an outstanding dinner, and we followed that with some NHL and NBA playoffs on TV, and an 18-inning Phillies-Reds game over on ESPN2. We also sprinkled in some music by The Cars via YouTube on our laptop. 🙂
Jill and I watched Oscar-winning film “The King’s Speech” last night. It was excellent.
The three of us enjoyed the beautiful weather yesterday. Went for a bike ride, played at the park and then played wiffle ball in our driveway.
Jill tried to be Hank Aaron and hit the ball out of the park. I got a little nervous when her line drives ricocheted off the house. Hahaha.
I’m not sure how the Farley Hawks are able to throw a new pitcher out there every day. They played Sunday at Bernard, Tuesday at Rickardsville and Thursday at Peosta. Their schedule says they play again tonight against Cascade.
The Hawks must have a 12-man pitching staff, just like the big-league teams. 😉
