7/31/09: Last Day in July 2009 DLD


We need a fresh DLD. And I'm having a little bout of insomnia. So rather than watch more youtube clips of my favorite tv shows, I'm putting together this snazzy new DLD for us all to play with. Enjoy it on Friday, you can even take it for a spin over the weekend. There's a little something in here for everyone, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the dump...

The trade deadline is 4pm EST on Friday (that's 1pm on the West Coast). The latest two trades are ones involving Kevin Hart of the Cubbies (now Pirates) and George Sherrill of the Orioles (now Dodgers). There were other people involved in those trades, but you'll have to click the links to find more.

Speaking of the Cubs, they scored 12 runs for the second straight day. Rich Harden (aka gigglingone's future husband) pitches for the baby bears on Friday against the Florida Marlins. Go Richie!! Also pitching on this last day of the seventh month is former A Chad Gaudin, pitching against Milwaukee, and Cliff Lee, making his Phillies debut in San Francisco.

The A's come home to take on Toronto in a three game set. Friday night (7:05) brings us a Braden vs. Richmond match up. This will be Richmond's first start in over a month, including a DL stint for something with his shoulder.  Saturday (6:20) the A's will retire Rickey's number, and the sell out crowd will stick around to watch Ricky Romero take on Trevor Cahill. Sunday (1:05) has TBA vs. Mazzaro. Don't know who TBA is, but if they don't switch around their rotation, it should be Rzepczynski. How on earth do you pronounce that name?

In other sports, I totally thought this was referring to Tiger Woods. Why on earth would he be in Vegas???

Remind me not to play Monopoly with this guy.

And to get you all in a Rickey Henderson mood for the weekend, check out this snazzy new plaque of his:
