¡Chill Out, Carlos!

Catcher Brian McCann had words for him last September when the Brewers played the Braves. Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole felt the need to verbally express himself yesterday in their game.  The common denominator in this pair of incidents is Brewers CF Carlos Gomez.  He likes to watch the ball fly in a "nanny-nanny-boo-boo" fashion; some of the opponents want to watch their fists fly into his face.  He's been knocked down a couple of times in the dust-ups that have become bench-clearing brawls.  Simmer down, son.  Just hit and catch and show them your stuff without flaunting it in their face.  For your revolting display of temper, you get a Yellow Flag of Shame.

Lady Grid out.

UCONN All the Way - Ugh.

I wasn't happy to see the end results of the men's and women's basketball championships this week.  Congratulations to the UCONN teams, but I wanted someone else to win.  C'est la vie.  It's baseball watching time anyway.

Diamond Time

  1. Josh Hamilton is out for several weeks.  Sorry, Angels!
  2. The Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 4-2 today thanks to Big Papi's three run homer.  Ugh.
  3. Cleveland and San Diego split their double header, and the Reds blanked St. Louis.  St. Louis losing is always good news.
  4. I agree with OF Adam Jones that fans belong in the stands during games.  This storming the field or court that is all the rage needs to stop. Now.  Someone will be hurt, and it won't be good for anyone.  

Lady Grid out.
