Ooooh, Torii’ Hunter’s in trou-ble! This past weekend, he fulfilled a promise he had made last September, by rewarding the KC Royals with four bottles of Dom Perignon (what, no Veuve Clicquot?) for sweeping the Detroit Tigers, giving the Twins first place in the American Central. And guess who broke the news?? Why, a a blog did it. [I'm sure if this had happened to the Vikings, they wouldn't have sent something as innocent as champagne.]
One same day his child was due to be born, Dontrelle Willis pitches the Marlins to victory over the Braves. All I did the day Baby Mets was born was attend my baby shower at work. [Willis also singled and tripled? Someone's happy to be a dad!]
Meanwhile, in Yankee land, A-Rod continues to obliterate everything in his path. He hit 2 HRs yesterday, and is now one home run away from the record for the month of April. In pitching news, Phil Hughes will make his major league debut on Thursday, against the Blue Jays. [Let's see how Clemens Lite performs on Thursday.]
More after the jump…
Mark Prior (who?) will have exploratory surgery. I wonder what could possibly be up in there. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to hear that Prior’s shoulder was being held together with silly string and some Play-Doh..]
Carlos Delgado hits first HR of the season (finally! He’s been a gaping hole on my fantasy roster), and then pulls a T.O. – he caught the final out of the game, signed the ball, and gave it to fan! That’s pretty awesome. I would love a ball signed by Delgado – especially one that his phone number underneath his signature.]
4 year-old hottie Caden Thomas was minding his own business, watching from the sidelines at a youth football festival, when Colorado State WR George Hill crashed into him. Poor Caden – he needed 30 stitches to close up the cut on his head. So, we’re naming our kids “Caden” now?]
And in the NHL and NBA, the playoffs continue. But that’s just noise to me (go Devils, go Nets!).
