Quieter day, perhaps?

Between Josh Hamilton and Adam Dunn, you had the two best stories of the spring happening within a couple hours of one another yesterday. The Hamilton story is getting quite a bit of debate on the blog. Feel free to weigh in.

Today will surely be quieter.

I've also written quite a bit about Gary Majewski's and Ken Griffey Jr.'s injury. You may wonder why. They're minor setbacks, early in the camp. The reason I've written is much is what they could turn into. Griffey was day-to-day for a month in 2005. Majewski's talking about his shoulder exactly like Brandon Claussen was up until the point he said he was having surgery. My guess is both Griffey and Majewski will be fine well before Opening Day, but you've got to keep an eye on both.

To the dismay of one anonymous poster, we're leaving the baseball realm for a bit. 24 has been strong this season. I won't reveal any of what happened. But let me ask this: If Jack Bauer was a real guy, wouldn't he be like the eighth leading cause of death in the U.S.?

I've heard "Dude, Looks Like a Lady" three times on the radio in four days here. That means I'm going to hear it 26.2 times before I head north. That's more than a lifetime supply. There ought to be a law that all rental cars have those little jacks you can plug your iPod into. Either that or I'm going to have to search the dial a little bit more. As I was writing that, Rob Butcher sent this:

ROAD TRIPPIN'...: This season the Reds have a Major League-high 6 road trips of at least 10 days, including four 10-day jaunts and a pair of 11-day road trips...for the first time in its history Cin has 6 road trips of at least 10 days in a single season...from the end of April through the first trip after the All-Star break the schedule includes 5 consecutive road trips of at least 10 days long...the Yankees and Rockies are second with 4 trips of 10 days or more.

Better write my Congressman about getting the iPod jack law passed.

How 'bout me, C. Trent and Lonnie vs. you, Dustin and Doc in a six-man, bloggers battle royale. The winner takes control of the blog situation - and the JOA.
