I like rain. Well, on to business. Rich Harden starts again today vs. the White Sox, which should be fun what with all the strikeouts. According to Mychael Urban, Loaiza "looked great" and "plenty healthy" yesterday. He's topping out at around 88 at this point, but it's early...
Crosby/Duke news: Crosby will play seven innings in the minors today and is scheduled to join the team for tomorrow's game against the Royals. Duke pitched BP yesterday, and is scheduled to make a minor league appearance on Wednesday and then join the team on Friday.
Also, many of you have been thinking "where has Bocachica been?" Do not panic: he was stricken with a non-baseball condition and will be back in action today.
Scientists are working on a drug that can erase traumatic memories, just like in the movies I imagine. I have some memories from earlier in the decade that I could probably do without. A better drug might be the Total Recall variety where I could remember those same events differently, but that ended badly as I recall.
I would freak out if I saw a flying lizard.
