Pitchers seemed to have been confused by the emergence of Burke as the the Astros plunk leader, and the reshuffled line up which move Willy Taveras to the leadoff spot - this confusion got Taveras plunked Friday night, but Batista solved this dilema by plunking all three of them...


LMAO! :-b

Don't know why, but I'm laughing so hard at that my stomach hurts. :-b

I'm telling you, the guy who writes for that site is a comedic diamond-in-the-rough. I love his stuff, and he comes up with it almost daily.

Stalled at 281. Lean into one, Biggio!

Even if this astonishing run by the Astros doesn't result in a trip to the playoffs, you'd have to hope the team can find some way to bottle, can, freeze dry, vacuum pack, ziploc, tupperware, or cryogenicly freeze just a little bit of what they've had for these eight games to use it again next season - maybe a little earlier and more often.

:-D
The Astros and Pirates will go back at it around noon today, with Tom Gorzelanny on the mound for the Pirates. Craig Biggio has never been plunked by Gorzelanny or anyone else with both a z and a y in his last name.

I think someone has become a bit too handy with retrosheet.

Gotta wrap this thread up for 2006...

PlunkBiggio.com wrote:The lesson, as always, is this: Sure, it's a lot of fun to wait until you have to win 12 consecutive games to make the playoffs, and then win 9 in a row... but it's not really the best way to make the playoffs. Similarly, it may be fun to wait until the last week of the season to get those last 7 HBPs you need to break the all time record, but as it turns out, it will probably leave you with some work to do next season.

Looks like he should break the record in 2007. Honestly, I think this is way more interesting than Bonds' pursuit of Aaron.

I wonder if Sportscenter will take notice when he breaks the record. :-)

It must be spring.

If you're following the spring training ritual, you may be asking yourself "why do pitchers and catchers always have to show up a few days before everyone else?" In this era of off-season conditioning, winter ball, strength and conditioning coaches, and mini-camps, do pitchers and catchers really need a couple of extra days to get in shape? And what exactly are they accomplishing in the 6 days they have alone before the rest of the team shows up?

Well, this website has an alternate theory regarding why pitchers and catchers need a few days alone before the rest of the players - the batters - show up. Could it be that the pitchers and catchers early start in spring training is used to plan who they are going to hit with pitches in the coming season and how many times?
