Hit & Run: The Morning After

So I go away for a few days, and the next I thing I know, the other Ladies… have conquered the world. Fantastic work, y’all!

I’m airport blogging it again this week, this time from scenic LaGuardia Airport in New York (thanks to a cancellation of my flight back to Chicago from Boston yesterday) — so let’s all get caught up on the latest hottie news together, shall we?

The scenery in Pawtucket is lovely this time of year.

* While the big boy Sox didn’t fare so well against the Angels on Sunday (maybe they were hungover from Saturday’s night’s 10-run tear?), the AAA-PawSox were looking mighty fine against the Syracuse Chiefs on Sunday in Pawtucket. Ladies’ mascot Jacoby Ellsbury, freshly back from his appearance in Boston on Friday, scored the game-winning run.

* It was the Day of the Pitcher on Sunday: the Twins’ Johan Santana fanned a career-high 17 batters, the Braves’ John Smoltz struck out 12 en route to a club record, and the Padres’ Greg Maddux prevented a Houston sweep and picked up career W #342. Maddux and Smoltz just go to show that hottness knows no age.

* Roger Federer picked up his 50th career tournament championship, beating out James Blake at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters. As a non-tennis girl, I’m not even sure what that is– but I do know 50 victories is HOT.

* [This spot reserved for hottie news item on Carlos Zambrano and/or Ryan Theriot]. Unfortunately, mother nature decided not to cooperate, forcing a postponement thanks to rain of yesterday’s Cubs-Cards night game (and my flight back home!). Don’t worry, Cards, you’ll get yours today- so I’ll just post a cutie pitcher picture (see what I did there?) of today’s Cubbies starter Ted Lilly.

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. I would’ve given a write-up of my weekend trip to DC & RFK. But I don’t really remember much of what happened…

    Lilly looks too cute in that pic.

  2. Agreed, dctrojan – McCoy was beautiful. Of course, it may have been made more beautiful by the presence of Jacoby and Brandon Moss…

    And Metsy, my camera tells me I was at three Red Sox games in Fenway on Friday and Saturday (particularly the multitude of picture of Papyboo and Beckett and Jacoby)… but I remember little of any of it- EXCEPT FOR ERIC EFFIN’ GAGNE.

  4. Texy, when does the statute of limitations run out on “Even as a Cubs fan, I’m just so blown away by what Rick Ankiel has accomplished!” He KILLED us today!

  5. Ankiel is hot- Andie already made me admit that (retch)… but that’s all he’s gonna get from me.

    Do you hear me, Ankiel?!? I’m not falling for your heartstring-tugging hard luck story! I WON’T!
