Happy Birthday to Yu!

Happy Birthday to Yu Darvish (Who Is the Best)! In groundbreaking news, he cut and darkened the color of his hair last week and then promptly pitched a fantastic game against Detroit on Sunday. I don’t know if he’s taken advantage of my convenient guide to Dallas yet, but if not, now would be a good moment.

New hair, guys!  Maybe not as groundbreaking as Miley Cyrus meets little-kid-with-scissors-in-hand but still pretty exciting, if you ask me.

We love you, Yu.  We have also heard rumors that you speak perfectly good English and are just pulling all of our legs by using a translator.  In which case we think you should stop that, pronto.  Still, we love Yu.  You.  You know.

The Verdict on Suppan and the Jon Daniels Lookin’ Like Shia LaBeouf Thing

Happy Birthday, Mike Krukow!

I am a rabid Kruk fan and I care very deeply that people say Kruk and Kuip, not Kuip and Kruk.  That just feels so wrong.  Anyway, I hope he has a lovely birthday and I am so looking forward to listening to him again.

That’s Kruk and Kuip on baseball.  Ennn-joy the ballgame.

Someone asked me my thoughts on the Suppan signing as the “6th starter”.  I’m not 100% sold on it.  I think the ideal 6th starter is a younger person who is looking to make it, not looking for a place to finish up his career.  But since the Giants have four above-average starters locked in for a few years to come (and Zito who is locked in, above average or not) I can see why they would go with Suppan.  A interesting or iffy young pitcher doesn’t have a place in their organization right now, whereas Suppan could play a solid number six/relief role and he isn’t looking for fame or glory.  He’s already had that.  And if it’s a train wreck in spring training then, hey, there’s a way out.  So I think it’s a basically positive move.

Rangers FanFest is this weekend and I so, so want to be in Arlington.  I am living vicariously through my Texan readers.  Tell me all about it.

p.s.  Yesterday, @MLBFanHouse tweeted, “Does Jon Daniels look a little like Shia LeBeouf? I say yes.”

I don’t see it.  At all.  My sister does, but I am totally puzzled.  Come to my support, people.  Is there any resemblance?
