No game last night, so I am taking the day off.
Here's the current IL playoff situation:
- Yankees in first (72-51) for the IL North
- Durham Bulls in first for everything, but specifically the IL South (76-47)
- Columbus Clippers (CLE) for the IL West (72-52)
Wild card would currently be the Louisville Bats (69-54)
Lehigh Valley and Rochester have already been eliminated. Rochester, at 47-77, is the worst team in the league. Pawtucket is not going to the playoffs.
Switching gears, Gwinnett's Barbaro Canizares is the league's batting leader (AVG .336).
Durham's Dan Johnson has the biggest, fattest OPS with 1.053. He is running away with that one. Johnson's OBP of .430 also puts him first in the league.
Johnson's number one with home runs as well, with 30. If he was my brother I would probably dump a box of jewelry in front of his bedroom door, so when he wakes up in the middle of the night to go pee, he steps all over piles of pointy metal, earrings and so forth.
Alright, that's enough of that racket. I'm coming up on my five-year anniversary here so I'll have to think of some best/worst lists.
Okay, let's have breakfast!
