Hit and Run

* Pat Burrell is returning to his old college stomping grounds this week. First Hurricane Rexy, now this? How much more can the ladies of Florida withstand? [Burrell recalls college days]

* Michael Barrett thanks his lucky stars he’s a Cub, will throw a punch for the team anytime. (maybe that last part is my wishful thinking) [Barrett keeping focus on season]

* Huston Street’s bod has apparently reported to spring training looking even better this year than last. The women of America ask: how is that even possible? [Athletics Team Notes]


Thank you sir, may I have some more?

* David Beckham’s yearly base salary is actually $5.5MM, not one bajillion dollars as previously reported. Posh rethinks naming their fourth kid “Galaxy” in retaliation. [Beckham’s deal worth about $27.5M]

* Jeff Samardasjfbndagvnadja (aka Samardzija) tossed pitches in Arizona on Saturday. That’s not a euphemism. [Miller, Samardzija also draw attention in live batting practice]

* Drew Stanton outscores Brady Quinn… on the Wonderlic, 35-29. Michigan State hailed as academic powerhouse. Chris Leak and his 8 score hide in a corner. [NFL Quarterback Wonderlic Scores]

About Texas Gal

Pitched four years for the Philadelphia Athletics, and then played shortstop for seven years for the Montreal Expos. Taught Rickey Henderson to steal a base. Taught Nolan Ryan to throw a punch. Taught Mickey Mantle to drink a beer. Threw one seven-hitter and seven no-hitters. Wonderboy was my creation, and first Jobu shrine was in my locker. Often called "the next Dustin Pedroia". Always wear high socks and eyeblack. Prefer to slide headfirst.

One thought on “Hit and Run

  1. Not a euphemism… when Brady Quinn’s halfway across the country at the combine. But put Brady in an AZ Cards uniform (something for the non-traditional males in the Buzzsaw’s fanbase, to complement Leinart’s appeal to the… ladies), & Samardzija would be pop-shooting all over the place.
