Daily Sports Blurb, Anecdote or Quote 14 July 2008

Major League Baseball is taking their annual All Star game three day break. Tonight they will conduct the Home Run Derby. Grady Sizemore will be representing the Indians in the contest. Despite being a Cleveland's lead-off hitter, Sizemore is leading the American League in home runs at the break with 23 round trippers. Unfortunately, some of the games biggest sluggers will not be participating in the contest. Not to slight the players selected, but the AL, in addition to Sizemore, will be represented by Justin Morneau, Josh Hamilton and Evan Longoria. Morneau is a former MVP and a legitimate slugger. Sizemore has never hit 30 homers in a season. Hamilton is a second year player and Longoria is a rookie with 16 career homers. The game is being played in Yankee Stadium this year. Hard to believe there wasn't a single slugger they could find that plays for the host team.

Here is a picture of our dog, Grady. Grady was named after Sizemore of course.

(minor disclaimer: That is a two-year old picture. Current pics not quite as cute.)
