Weekend Wrapup, Odds and Ends

I had an awesome weekend.  First, I spent Friday night playing poker and hanging out with friends. Saturday evening we celebrated my Dad’s birthday with barbecue and baseball. Dad was happy to see Miami win, I was happy that Georgia Tech won the other two games of the series to move into second place in the ACC. Yes, I sang “Dead Skunk” with pride and the awesome girlfriend sang along with me. Sunday I made an impromptu trip to see some AAA ball. Nothing of note happened in the game and Braves’ top prospect 1B Freddie Freeman got the day off, but its still always great to sit out in the sun at a ballgame.

Following up on Friday’s post, Aki Iwamura now has a “sore hamstring.” He’s not expected to need to go on the DL, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see him held out for a few days, then placed on the DL May 20 with Neil Walker being recalled. Delwyn Young is starting at 2B and batting leadoff tonight. Check my twitter account on the left, along with Extra Innings host Rocco DeMaro and Pittsburgh Lumber Co.’s Matt Bandi for a short discussion on lineup construction.

The Pirates came within 2 innings of sweeping the Cubs. They are currently 16-21 and in third place. The Cubs are a half game back in fourth, meaning that this season is the best shot I’ve had in years to win my annual bet with my friend Keith, noted Cubs fan and closet mime.
