Blast from the past:



Joe Garagiola is filling in as the color commentator on the broadcast of the Twinkies/D-backs game tonight. It's the AZ broadcast and it's being shown right now on the MLB Network.

Caption contest?

Houston Astros' left fielder Carlos Lee voices his disgust after being picked-off 3rd base for the 82nd time in his career.

Wanted-to-eat-a-bullet bad. But he always was terrible. I was watching and thinking, wow AZ fans have to put up with THAT every game. Fortunately for them, no.

One nice thing about MLB Network is that you get to hear broadcasting teams from around the league. Any Hawk and/or Stone detractors might want to give these others a listen. It's pretty scary out there.

An eighty-five year old Joe Garagiola is actually a big improvement over the regular D-Backs telecast.  Joe fills in for the absolutely awful Mark Grace whenever Marky works a Fox network Saturday game.  Grace never shuts up.

Trivia from espn.com:

Besides Carl Crawford, Jose Reyes, and Juan Pierre (4x apiece), only four players currently in the big leagues have stolen 50-plus more than once. Can you name them?

Big fail for me.  P-H-A-L-E is more like it.

I only got one, Michael Bourn.  Figgins is in there.  I guessed Rollins, no.  No Ichiro, no Pods either, maybe because he isn't on a MLB roster?  I also guessed Damon and Furcal, thought Jeter might have done it, but no on all of those.

I looked up my 4... i got 2 right... and scotty was one... so is figgins. pods had 50 with us and 70 the year before with the brewers...

he was also recalled by the Jays.... so hes active now. Totally blacked on bourn... and still short one. was almost sure rollins was in there.

So if you add Bourn, scotty and figgins... we need one more...

I take that back... Scotty is in minors with bosox... Blue jays news was old... so we only have two in Figgins and Bourn.

What about Jose reyes?

Reyes was included in the question, Meth.  He, Crawford, and Pierre all have 4x years.  Points deducted for failing to comprehend...

Josh wins, Hanley Ramirez is indeed the 4th.

IT.... and no one said anything about nice jobs... 80% of all replies are "let me tell you about this exciiting potential job where you sell insurance"

or dealing with technical recruiters that really have no clue in what they are talking about.
