When I get up and the sun is shining on a Saturday like this one and the AC is on; it reminds me of Saturday mornings when I was a kid and I would grab the sports page out of the stack off my parents table. I would take the box scores and find all my favorite guys. If they did something worthwhile, I circled them and then cut out the box score and pinned it on my bulletin board. That’s back when there was no ESPN.com or MLB.com, so you had to get the paper to see what the out of town guys did. And if it was a ‘late’ game you had to wait TWO days to see what guys on the west coast did. And then you ran the risk of someone throwing the damn paper away when it came.
As always, full slate of games on tap today for people who love baseball; you’ll likely do something else fun today on this Memorial Day weekend but baseball will be there waiting for when you’re bored. And that’s why it’s great.
Your song of the week that should be played on a loudspeaker near you is a good one. This one is straight out of Boyz N’ the Hood/Grand Theft Auto V.
Enjoy your Saturday everyone. Thank you for your continued support of Diamond Hoggers. Don’t be that guy in your fantasy league who neglects his lineup!
