Quick Notes

Thanks to everyone who voted for me in the haiku contest over at The Platoon Advantage. I ended up winning the contest. Unfortunately my local Dick’s doesn’t carry any Pirate gear so I’ll probably get some new shoes.

Pedro Alvarez has been called up. Hopefully he keeps hitting like he did in Indy and is the lift this offense needs.

The Bucs start a four game set in Atlanta tonight. By no coincidence at all, I’ll be in attendance for all four games. The pitching matchups are brutal, so escaping with a split would be just fine.

Game 1: McDonald vs Hudson
Game 2: Karstens vs Hanson
Game 3: Maholm vs Jurrjens
Game 4: Correia vs Lowe

Rain is in the forecast tonight, so let’s hope this one gets in without too much delay. Follow my twitter feed for pics and thoughts as they come.

Vote For Me

My friends Bill and The Common Man ran a baseball haiku contest over the weekend at The Platoon Advantage and they selected my entry as a finalist. They are giving away a gift card to Dick’s so I’d appreciate your vote, but if not me then vote for one of the Pirates haiku’s that made the cut.
