Miscellaneous Thoughts

Is it the new ballpark? Last year Javy Lopez hit 43 HR for Atlanta. This year he has just 18 for Baltimore. Last year Rafael Palmeiro had 38 HR for Texas. This year he has just 14 for Baltimore. Maybe they changed something in their workout regime or diet or maybe they stopped taking their suppliments.... Go figure: Bronson Arroyo is 5-9 while Derek Lowe is now 11-10. Arroyo has a 4.13 ERA and Lowe has a 5.26 ERA. Go figure... Count me among those that don't see the big deal in Kirsten Dunst. She's 22 now but I'd bet by the time she is 30 - she'll be looking pretty beat... On this day in 1920 - Ray Chapman of the Indians is killed when he is hit in the head by a pitch from Yankees pitcher Carl Mays. According to Today in Baseball History - this is the only on the field fatality in MLB history... Happy 53rd birthday to Butch Hobson...
