DLD 8/23: No comment

This day in Baseball History

1952 Bob Elliot of the Giants is tossed from the Cardinal game for protesting a strike two call and his replacement, Bobby Hoffman, is also thrown out for arguing the third strike of the same at-bat.

1980 A's owner Charlie Finley sells the club for $12.7 million to the Haas family of San Francisco, owners of the Levi Strauss clothing empire, thus keeping the team in Oakland.

1989 Cincinnati manger Pete Rose agrees to a lifetime
suspension
from baseball due to allegations of betting on baseball.

"Around the League in 90 seconds, I'm Lamont Germany"

Angels gain a game on our loveable muppets against a very tired Boston club.  Panther in the Laundry Basket (whatever that means).

The BIG STIX of the West Come up empty, again and fail to gain any ground.

The Mariners lost again, oh wait, no, they won?   Maybe, I don't really believe it, but I guess they are now 57-68.  Speaking of the Mariners, Jamie Moyer's debut went very well for the Fightins - debut at Wrigley.

Today's matchup at the Rogers Centre:

A's and Jays, first pitch: 4:07pm PDT

                   

----------                    ----------

Loiaza (6-7, 5.58)          Chacin (6-2, 5.61)
