Goooz... I mean Cruuuuuz

Well, apparently we don't need to learn much of a new chant.

The Nats have traded for Deivi Cruz, a shortstop coming from the Giants. Trader Jim at work again, it seems. Cruz was batting .268 with five homers and 19 RBI in 81 games with San Francisco this year, as opposed to Gooz's .196 with three homers and 19 RBI in 114 games.

The radio announcers tonight seem to think Cruz can be in place for the nightcap to tomorrow's double header.

Bowie Baysox

I had the chance to catch a Bowie Baysox game tonight. We arrived late (work and traffic) so we were there for the 4th inning to the end. Ah, the hoopla at a minor league game... it included kids running the bases (between innings), on field sumo wrestling, the Diamond Disco Dancers, and the "Five Guys" chant when the Baysox had the chance to score 5 in one inning.

Sharon was highly amused.

You know Dave, even indirect financial support of the Orioles is strongly discouraged. :)

Sharon paid for the tickets, so I feel quite secure in my statements that none of my money went to Angelos.
