I'm a few days late here, but notch another plunk on Biggio's belt.

Here's the latest words of wisdom from PlunkBiggio.com:

Monday, commenter DM asked a number of questions related to whether or not more plunks leads to a better or worse offensive season in terms of hits and runs batted in. Essentially the question was "Do more plunks mean a better season or a worse season for Craig Biggio?" DM also asked "should we really be rooting for more plunks?" but the answer to that question is quite obviously yes, because there's a 103 year old record to be broken, and you just don't get to see that every day.

I even commented that he got plunked in the Hou game commentary thread.
Gotta root for the Long Island product to set a record, any record. ;-D


True. I wonder if Frank Catalanotto will bring home anything. :-b

Apparently, the Cards are just as interested in Biggio setting this record as we are. That's the second time we've plunked him this year.

280! 7 more to go!!!

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...

I'm rooting for him. ;-D If I was a pitcher, I'd plunk him on purpose every time.

The word "plunk" is starting to lose all meaning... like it's starting to sound pornograhic or something.
