Off-Days Make Me a Sad Manda

All You Can Eat Colostomy BagThe Reds are traveling to Houston and are apparently too jet-lagged from the one-hour time zone difference to be able to take the field today. Normally, Monday nights are when we take in the Indianapolis Indians (and their Monday night dollar menu), but alas, they are visiting the fine town of Louisville where Travis Wood has held them scoreless over 3.

Wherever shall I get my baseball fix today?? I contemplated staring at my wallpaper for three hours, but I decided that might make me a little creepy.

Instead, I checked out the email being sent to me by the Reds. Today they are advertising that the Cubs are coming to town May 7-9, and May 8 will be team photo day. As an added bonus, they want to remind me that there is an All-You-Can-Eat section in the ballpark, where you can bring your friends and loved ones to gorge themselves on hot dogs, peanuts, and…medical waste?

Maybe I’ll check out the blogs. Slyde has written a tome about Aaron Harang’s pitches, but at least it’s got more pictures than my Operations Management homework, which is what I’m ultimately trying to forget exists with this rambling.

    Slyde’s piece is actually quite good. I liked this bit from Rosenthal today,

    “Reds manager Dusty Baker asked management about a contract extension, according to a major-league source, but evidently the team is not yet ready to decide upon his future.”

    Hope springs eternal.

    Ooh! Ooh! I like that too!

    To quote myself from earlier today,

    “The only contract information I want to hear regarding Dusty is the termination of his current contract.”
