Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings so early in the day, but Ladies… it looks like David Wright is going to be a confirmed bachelor for the near future. That’s right- return the wedding dress, cancel the caterer and see if you can get a refund on that church deposit– because the #1 thing in DWright’s life is white, spherical and has big ol’ red stitches across its face… and I’m not talking about Mr. Met.
And while Davey’s Mets were getting pounded by Boomer Wells and the Dodgers (sorry, Metsy), fellow New Yorkers of the pinstriped variety ran into problems of their own with the Tigers– and Curtis Granderson‘s inside the park homerun helped lead Detroit to the W. Wonder if those wheels Curtis has can take them all the way to the playoffs?
Phillie fans had two reasons to cry this weekend (losses against the Padres on Friday and Saturday night), and three reasons to celebrate- (1) Sunday’s victory, but more importantly, (2) it looks like Cole Hamels could be activated on September 3rd, and (3) Chase Utley has already been activated— and could play as soon as today. Chutley filled out that Reading Phillies uni nicely enough, but I think everyone will be happier when he’s back on the diamond in big boy Phillie pinstripes. Well, at least Clare and I will.
Jeff Bagwell was honored yesterday when the Astros retired his #5 jersey— including remarks from Craig Biggio, Brad Ausmus and his boyhood hero Carl Yastrzemski (he’s a Red Sox fan, too!). The sweet and touching event was nearly marred when Bagwell showed up wearing what looked like your grandma’s draperies fashioned into a button-down, so to avoid that horror I’m using a picture of him in uni from back in the day.
And Lady Andrea’s “hottie” Julian Tavarez completed the Red Sox sweep of the White Sox with a victory on Sunday, ending the four-games with a combined run tally of 46-7. Which gives me a perfect excuse to post this picture of him from the game, and ask: What are you thinking, Andrea???
Seriously? No, really- SERIOUSLY?!?
I love y’all too much to leave you with that as the last image of Freddy Krueger burned into your retinas, so how about a couple of lovely shots of hottie (no quotation marks- he’s the real deal) Joe Mauer to cleanse your palate?
