DLD 8-17-09: Take BART (boop-boop) if ya wanna be on time



Yes, we have BART service today, and more importantly, tonight for those who can make it to the Coliseum to watch Brett Tomko take on the YankeesTomko tonight, Mazzarro tomorrow, Duchscherer....sometime maybe....he has a non-baseball issue.  But let's not dwell on the future when we have the past to gloat about!

SuSlu's writeup of yesterday's terrific game includes the quote from Mark Ellis:

Off the bat, I thought it was a double, then I saw (Scott) Podsednik coming over and I thought, 'He's not going to get it."

This astute observation notwithstanding, Craig Breslow is still the smartest man in baseball because he knows about DNA sequencing and stuff.

The Wall Street Journal has a fun story about foreign minor leaguers including the Brazilian-Japanese Fabio Murakami -- what a great name -- in the Phillies organization and the Moanaroa brothers in the Red Sox organization, who are believed to be the first Maori professional ballplayers in the US.  No word on whether they do the haka before games.

Y. E. Yang is a great success story.  Also, there's now at least one Korean restaurant in Chaska, MN, which is good news for me if I ever have to go visit my relatives there.   

"Bonk-Players-In-The-Head-Day" voted less popular than "Turn-Back-The-Clock-Day", but fortunately everyone is okay.  Also, the Milwaukee man who decided to get into the spirit of How Thick Is Your Cranium? Day by hitting the mayor in the head with a pipe at the State Fair is in custody.

Your dumps are respectfully solicited below....
