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

"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.

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.
