A very good pitching performance by Henderson combined with some power hitting made for a good Saturday Afternoon Win against Detroit. Time to whip out the brooms in anticipation of victory, but it will be tough with Doug Fister pitching for the Tigers. A good time for those who are mentally five years old or like to laugh at Fister For Furbush.

Maybe, but personally I don't think so. It just isn't a good fit especially if the IOC wants professionals in it. I'd rather the Olympics should focus more about the sports most folks only care about once every four years but that's just my opinion.

Baseball History - July 29th - National Pastime - Baseball History
Today in baseball history. Not much for Jays fans. Bo knows time outs and the 1988 Baltimore Orioles don't know winning... 1988 After his request for time-out isn't granted by the home plate umpire Mike Reilly, Bo Jackson, despite not be set in the batter box when the pitch is delivered, recovers in time to hit a home run. The Royals' left fielder fourth-inning three-run poke off Jeff Ballard contributes to Kansas City's 6-3 victory over Baltimore at Memorial Stadium.
