Lueke, Youkilis, Matsuzaka, Matsui

What kind of nutso headline is that? (By the way, who says baseball isn't international?)

An explanation:
  • Durham Bulls pitcher Josh Lueke has been called up to the Rays. No replacement named. Speculation is that a Bulls starter will be swapped out at the end of the week.
  • Famous Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis - -  you know, the guy who droops his bat up over his head and points it at the pitcher while waiting for a pitch - - will be in the house Wednesday night on a rehab assignment.
  • As reported earlier, nearly as famous Red Sox pitcher, Daisuke Matsuzaka, better known as Dice-K, will also be in the house for a rehab assignment, this Thursday.
  • Godzilla, aka Hideki Matsui, will be wearing number 55. Henry Wrigley gave it up. Of course he did. Wouldn't you?
Now if the weather holds ...


  1. Well, not a great start, but apparently Matsui thinks highly of Montoyo:

    "(Montoyo) seems like a wonderful human being and a great manager."

  2. 8-2 Ouch I hope Wed is better
