Alright, it’s only May so we can’t quite predict who’s going to win MVP or what team is going to win the World Series. However, there are some WEIRD things going on with MLB.
1.) As discussed on Pardon the Interruption today… there have been over 30 rainouts so far this season. There were only 21 rainouts during the ENTIRE season last year. It also seems that numerous grounds keepers keep getting lost in the tarp too. Sports Center has opened with a different shot of that at least a couple times a week.
2.) Albert Pujols is in a “Power Slump”. His average is actually a bit higher, but his lack of dingers is offensive. He hasn’t hit a home run since April 23rd. I actually got to see him hit a jack on April 19th. Maybe I cursed him by going to his ball park.
3.) Since Jake Peavy has been back the White Sox have been using a 6 man rotation… Who does that?
4.) The Minnesota Twins have the worst record in baseball.. (this is good for the White Sox, who had it for a while). This could be because of the Twins DL and numerous guys missing games because they are sick.
5.) Cincinnati Reds’ pitcher Mike Leake was arrested for shoplifting (see previous blog for more information). Really? You’re a pro athlete. Why do you have to steal?
Like stated earlier it’s only May so we can’t freak out too much. But is the baseball apocalypse near? I guess we’ll have to wait until October to find out… if the Cubs get it together.
