Quote of the day
"Probably 1,000 celebrations over the course of the last five years and there's one injury and now you want us to quit." -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, when asked if the Twins would prohibit game ending walk-off celebrations
We certainly had some unusual happenings over the weekend.
Roy Halladay pitched a perfect game. According to Wikipedia, this was only the second time that two perfect games were hurled in the same MLB season. Since Mark Buehrle also pitched one in July, 2009, there have now been three of them within a one year span. Is pitching catching up to hitting?
Curiously, the only other year with two perfect games was 1880, when the first two perfect games in MLB history were thrown just 5 days apart in June – after which the feat wasn’t repeated until Cy Young threw one in 1904.
Meanwhile, Kendry Morales found a way to hit a walk-off grand slam homerun and break his leg within the same minute.
Congrats to wimpy mule, whose -55 was two strokes better than any other GuruGolf team over the weekend. Wosrt ball honors went to whipsticks (+44), a full seven stokes ahead of the closest contenders.
