A crazy day for baseball!

Here it is, nearing the end of Week 2 of the Major League Baseball season and I’ve yet to post on anything. This is a good day on which to break my silence. Ubaldo Jimenez (shown in a photo from earlier this season) no-hit the Atlanta Braves, and as I write this the Mets and Cardinals are still battling in the 19th inning in St. Louis. And in Pittsburgh, my daughter took my infant granddaughter to her first baseball game as the Pirates came from behind to defeat the Reds 5-4 in the ninth inning.

Whew!

A side note: In 2005, Jimenez spent the first half of 2005 playing for the Class A Modesto Nuts. I saw him pitch at least once, and he’s the first minor-leaguer I can recall seeing who has gone on to do something outstanding in the majors. So did Jimenez make The Modesto Bee all-decade team? No.

One response to “A crazy day for baseball!

  1. Yeah, it was a crazy day in baseball today. The Mets ultimately held on and won the game in 20 innings, despite the fact that Reyes, Bay and Francoeur went a combined 0-21. And Mets bullpen allowed 21 base-runners in 13 innings. Both teams will be exhausted tomorrow. Welcome Back! Bill (The On Deck Circle)
