Garza and Gammons

One
month down, everybody.  Lots of
different stories, players, and teams have emerged since Opening Day; the one
that stands out in my mind is still Nick Adenhart’s tragic death, and I hope we
can all continue to honor his memory throughout the season. 

 

However…there are a few more recent stories that I’ve found interesting:

 

Matt
Garza was amazing last night.  Even
though I didn’t have the game on TV, I saw highlights, and was amazed to see
him throw a perfect game through seven innings against Boston.  Of course, it won’t show up in the record books because he
didn’t go all nine, but that is still something to be proud of.  And even though Garza was incredible, I
was kind of happy to see that Jacoby Ellsbury was the one who ruined it for
him. 

 

The
best baseball-related commercial I have seen so far this season is this one for
Baseball Tonight, which features
Peter Gammons:



 

Gammons
is obviously a respected baseball journalist and veteran in the field, and this
commercial made me laugh because it made him the baseball equivalent to Chuck
Norris.  I don’t get the change to watch Baseball Tonight very often, but when I do, I love his insight.  Except for maybe the sweet
parking skills, I would not be surprised if all of this were true.  Maybe.

 

And
on top of all of this, it’s Friday. 
This weekend I’ll probably have my eyes on the Twins/Royals series
because Joe Mauer has returned.  Also, I’ll be watching the Mariners because I’d like to see if
they can remain in first place longer than one month and they’re playing a
division rival.  Granted, it’s the
last-place A’s, but I’m looking forward to it.  What weekend game(s) will you be watching?
