This site has been slow for me for a couple days now.
Brock is picking people off... Mmm... I was noticing a red laser like dot on my chest earlier. I changed seats... Just in case.
Iowa is good - nice and cool today and we actually had a 1/2 inch of rain yesterday. Although my Hawkeyes look like (seomething I won's mention here).
The boys need to get Hendriks some runs here.
Iowa... Percentage of Hawkeye/Cyclone Fans? Is there any reason to be a primary Northern Iowa or Drake Fan with those big programs hanging around? Is the allegiance geographical?
I couldn't find anything on baseball specifically (although I could just be overlooking it in this article). But this: http://sportsanddrugs.procon.org/vie...ourceID=002037
has Propranolol (I think that's what Inderal is) banned.
(And the Hawkeye/Clone split is somewhat but not entirely geographical. Since they are both state institutions and UNI as well, a lot of allegience is just due to where people went to school).
Actually it looks like Propranolol may not be banned in baseball.
I could find stuff on precision sports like golf and shooting but nothing on baseball specifically.
Major league play, Plouffsie.
I've said this before, and believe it to be true: Plouffe has the physical ability to be a damn good third baseman, and when he exhibits throwing problems, it tends to be when he has too much time to think about it. That's fixable.
Ryan Doumit is out of Thursday's lineup with a strained muscle in his rib cage.
He's considered day-to-day for now. Drew Butera will start behind the plate Thursday while Josh Willingham serves as the designated hitter and Darin Mastroianni plays left field.

that Butler ball is the reason that Revere needs to play CF, not Span. Dont know if he catches it, but he doesnt pull up like Denard always does.
At the plate... He's just back to chasing again. He's got to be more selective at the plate. Hopefully he'll figure it put again.
