  1. I see Hunter Pence has struck out a full 25% of his at-bats, and also leads the Giants in homeruns, Mike.

    How's he doing in the field?

    He was apparently the most maddening player in recent Phillies history along those lines, according to the life-long fans here, which is quite a feat. Especially considering he was only here for a year.

    I hope he's been treating youze better than he did us! I bring this up because I just saw a young woman wearing one of those 2011 vintage "Pence-ylvania" Phillies t-shirts on the way home. That was at least a fantastic marketing slogan, if nothing else... ;)

  2. Shit. Come on Oakland, stop losing!

    I even just dusted off my A's hat, while wandering along Lehigh Ave west of Broad a few hours ago, not far from where Shibe Park / Connie Mack Stadium once stood...

    These friendly vibes from your home should help youze!

  3. Tomorrow's my day off, and I'm jogging from Somerset & Frankford to the Art Museum. 5 miles. I want to do this twice a week (second day is hard to find, but Thursday night might work) from now on. Jog there, walk home. Take a bus or the El back if I have to, but I'd prefer not to. Let's see how it goes.

    I am excited. :)
