5/21- DLD

Alrighty, this is my first attempt (is there ever a second?) to lose my DLD virginity.

Halsey?  Could give a dump that he's part of history/trivia ...

From Slusser's A's Notebook ...

DJ - Smarter than the average Giant, or their fan ...
"Dan Johnson went and picked it up, but he wasn't fooled by the baseball thrown onto the field after Bonds' 714th career homer. "The umpire was like, 'Hey! Hey!' But I was like, 'It's a fake, there's no way anyone threw it back.'"

The Gamer is getting treated by a Decepticon?
"Milton Bradley received another shockwave treatment for his strained oblique strain and is showing signs of improvement, according to manager Ken Macha. ... "

Why stop there?  Bring in Megatron to help with the rest of the DL.

"I hate that guy," Snyder told reporters before he was whisked away. "I don't really care for the guy."  - I say he gets honorary AN membership.  He sounds like he would be willing to scribble an asterisk on the ball before selling it.
and ...
"When asked if he would consider giving it to Bonds, Snyder declined with a mild expletive."
Feel free to guess what that mild expletive was.

Around the league, Shea, Dodger, Atlanta, no one gave a dump.

Since I'm avoiding Bondsian dumps ... here's my only quote of him - "This is a great accomplishment because of Babe Ruth, what he brought to the game of baseball, his legacy to the game of baseball," Bonds said in a hoarse voice after the Giants completed a 4-2, 10-inning victory. "I think this and a World Series ring probably would be the ultimate."
A ring would be ultimate, huh?  Too bad the Giant's (Bonde) trophy case looks like this http://www.ikea.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?topcategoryId=15561&catalogId=10103 &storeId=12&productId=51754&langId=-1&parentCats=15561

"After that, with (132) pitches, I had to take him out unfortunately," Alou said
Alou, making Macha's staff management look ingenius.

Oh, and there was a game, too.

And finally, from the team's site.

And that's it.  I'm on my way to the game, and I have one extra bleacher ticket for an AN member if requested by 10:45.
