Pic of the Week

Fans at a Los Angeles Dodgers game
react to the business end of a broken
bat flying into the seats.
"Spectators assume all risks and dangers incidental to the game of baseball ..."

I really haven't anything to say about this one. I like the faces, and I'm not sure what the guy at bottom center is reaching for, but beyond that, nothing.

But while I'm here, a quick jab at Dick Bremer's new hobby of scoreboard watching:

Knock it off, Dick. Obsessing over the Twins' opportunity to shave a game off Cleveland's lead is insulting your audience.

We know the Twins have the worst record in baseball. We know that if they win 14 in a row -- which would be a very impressive winning streak -- they would still be below .500.

If the Twins ever get above .500 this season, if they should somehow pull within eight or so games of the lead, sure, then the margin is of interest.

Until those unlikely events come to pass, it's irrelevant. Don't pretend the Twins are in the race. They aren't, and we know it.
