Leadoff Notes

There’s something weird going on when Paul LoDuca and Jeffrey Hammonds both see lead off duty in the same week. Only Craig Biggio’s return to the top of the order (and subsequent homer) is keeping the universe from warping back in on itself.

No one knows what will happen if that happens, but some speculate that more and more people will laugh like Tommy Lasorda. Spare us that, Larry D!

I love reading my box scores online at night, but I’m always amused at what’s missing. Seeing this Milwaukee box my first reaction was: Did they bring the mercy rule to the majors?

It’s about time.
