Throwing it around

Keep an eye on the Cubbies/Brewers game today at 2:30. That’s what I was going to do but I found some work for a buddy. Don’t know if you’ve heard yet, but late last night when you were tucked in bed, Josh Hamilton was the star for the Texas Rangers, and it took all of 2 games. I think the Reds might regret (or should regret) letting him go and giving him away for a very, very long time. There’s a full slate of games today/tonight for the first time in several months. It’s going to be a great night. Here’s some other baseball links to enjoy this early afternoon:
