Hit and Run

* Jeff Francoeur‘s contract is unilaterally renewed by the Braves at less than his asking price. Jeff says he’s not bitter– we say, we love a man who can take a slap in the face without flinching. [Francoeur not bitter over handling of contract]

* Lufkin Daily News scores a dream interview with Brett Favre and Roger Clemens. No, really, it’s all a dream – but that doesn’t make Roger calling Brett a “Cheese Head” any less funny. [Dream interview: Favre and Clemens]

* Notre Dame safety Tom Zbikowski is boxing for charity tomorrow night. Let’s see if Zibby can beat his professional debut at Madison Square Garden, when he knocked his opponent out in 49 seconds. With that bod, he knocked me out in .5 seconds. [Zbikowski will fight for good causes]

The definition of “knockout”

* Mike Schmidt’s annual spring training bitchfest focuses this year on Pat Burrell. Mike (aka the Phillies’ PR machine) says calling Pat “mediocre” is just his way of bonding. Pat ignores Mike, prefers to bond with the female FSU population instead. [Schmidt Sees Himself In Burrell’s Swing and Burrell feasts on Seminoles]

* Vince Young isn’t content with being a pimp on the field, now apparently is a pimp for the Titans organization. [Titans see Young as free agent magnet]

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. For the Cole fans out there: Cole Hamels says he will win 20 games this year. Some of our Ladies believe he can do all that and so much more…

    Eric Byrnes (c’mon, someone out there thinks he’s hot) says he washes his hair every 10 days or so (ew).

  2. God, Mike Schmidt is such a twat! Shut up, Mike! I’ve never liked that guy, and I wish he would just shut up and go away and stop defending Pete Rose.

    Where’d you see that Hamels story, Mets? I read the one on philadelphiaphillies.com where he talks about taking icy baths for his back. Note to self: Consider doing Wildwood Polar Bear Plunge.

  3. Yeah, Zibby is a total hottie. Short, though. I’ve got like 4 inches on him, which I made sure to notice the one time I got to rub up against him in a crowded CJ’s. Woo woo.

  4. He weighed in at 6’0″, 214 for his fight- and that’s just about perfect. Obviously, the taller the better, but he meets my 6’0″ minimum — and since I’m 5’4″ (5’5″ on my driver’s license), that should do me just fine.

  5. TexasGal, he’s not 6’0. Sorry to burst your bubble. He’s like 5’8, 5’9 at best. I hate how they list athletes as taller than they are, it’s so misleading.

  6. I expected ND to lie- but I thought professional boxing required honesty. I thought that was the whole point of the weigh-in and measurement.


  7. I also ran into Zibby with some of his buds back in his home town in the Chicago Area. I stand around 5’8 and Zibby was about equal to my height. He may be a little guy, but he is so well put together. A total hottie!! If I were a tall girl I would love a muscular little hottie like Tommy Z. He is the perfect height coming up right at chest level!!
