Hit & Run: We Want A Pitcher, Not A Belly Itcher

I’ve got pitchers on the brain – but then again, what else is new?

The Good:
The Tigers just called up hottie Jordan Tata to make his first start in the The Show (against the A’s)- I applaud any move that puts more hottie pitchers on the mound.

And volatile yet hot Carlos Zambrano yesterday become the first pitcher in baseball to get 14 wins this season. I love a man who is handy with a pitch… and his fists.

The Bad:
Newly off the DL, uber-hottie Huston Street ran into some trouble against the Mariners on Sunday and picked up the loss. I’m pretty sure I know a girl or two who’d be happy to comfort him. (and love that retro uni)

The Ugly:
Not only did Astros pitcher cutie Jason Jennings get the L on Sunday, he gave up 11 runs… in one inning. I have nothing clever to say about that, just… YOWCH.

And special love to HOF’er Hotties Cal Ripken, Jr. and Tony Gwynn, who were inducted into Cooperstown yesterday. Congrats to both men- each played the game right (and each played for just one team their entire career, to boot).

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.

  1. As terrible as the weekend was for the Tigers, this news is TaTariffic!

    Sigh.

    Can we fast forward to the post season? This mid season slump is the suck.

  2. Cal was a hottie back in the day. Those blue eyes……sigh

    Carlos Z. has never done it for me and I’ve even tried to be objective. I don’t think it’s my hate blinding me.

  3. CAL!!!!!!! Sports hero and older-man-crush extraordinaire. I think he’s pretty swell. His HOF speech brought a tear to my eye. He’s a lovely guy.

  4. It’d be nice if the Indians had bothered to actually take advantage of all of those Tiger losses. Of course, if the second half of our rotation didn’t suck balls, that would have helped.

  5. Yeah, I got a pitcher on the mind right now and his name is COLE MOTHERFUCKING HAMELS (oh…No way…That M stands for Michael? Hmmm…)

    ANYWAY, he’s on TV right and oh my dear sweet jesus, could he possibly lick his lips anymore? That tongue is just…I refuse to think any different than that he knows how to use it…VERY well.

  6. Phillies win but loose 2 more players…Rowand better keep his bacon ass out of any walls, holes or players gloves!
