We have afternoon baseball today. Glad to hear the Jays are closing the roof, with it being scary hot out. Also nice to see Snider in CF again, thought putting in center just so we can get Corey Patterson's big bat into the lineup seems a little counter productive. But when Lawrie is up with the team, having Travis in center will give us room to put together a pretty decent lineup.
- Bob Elliot has a series on this year's Hall of Famers. Here he talks to Pat Hentgen about Robby Alomar.
- And Bob on the phone call to Pat Gullick.
- Bob on Dave Van Horne. I've said before how I owe a large part of my love of baseball to Dave Van Horne. As much as Tom Cheek deserves to go into the Hall, I'm thrilled that they are sending Dave, he was so good doing those Expo games. I love the story about Ken Singleton 'speaking Japanese'.
- Bob on Bert Blyleven and his time in Saskatchewan.
- One more from Bob Elliot. This time talking to Jack McKeon on the Alomar trade.
- Shi Davidi talks to Edwin Encarnacion.
- Adam Dunn may not have hated baseball before but after this season he might.
Enjoy the game this afternoon.
