    MLB in its infinite wisdom has made sure that there are NO ballgames on television in the St. Louis area, on today a holiday.

      Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

          OK, so I overlooked the Cubs broadcast. But only one telecast in this market is crazy. Plus, an open date of a holiday?

            And the powers that be in MLB keep wondering why their product is slipping with younger people. They limit its exposure, therefore forcing people to find other forms of entertainment. There's no reason for any team to be off on a holiday. Plus, ESPN should have at least a doubleheader showing.

              Well, cranking it up to play baseball, which must count for something.

                A few of the managers I see on a short leash:

                Willie Randolph (Mets)
                Ned Yost (Brewers)
                Bud Black (Padres)

                    Holy crap!

                    Former MLB, Japanese league pitcher Gonzalez killed by lightning in Venezuela


                    The Associated Press
                    Published: May 26, 2008


                    CARACAS,Venezuela: Former U.S. Major League Baseball and Japanese league pitcher Geremi Gonzalez was hit by lightning and killed in his native Venezuela, an official said Monday.


                    The 33-year-old pitcher, who played for five MLB teams, was struck by lightning on Sunday night in the western state of Zulia, said Herman Bracho, the regional emergency management chief.


                    Gonzalez was riding a personal watercraft in Lake Maracaibo at the time, according to Antonio Olmos, a friend who witnessed his death.
                    "It was raining and he got down off his watercraft to grab another one," Olmos told the Venezuelan newspaper Panorama. "At that moment, lightning struck him in the neck and broke a gold chain he was wearing."


                    The account differed from that given by Bracho, who said Gonzalez was on a pier at the beach when struck by lightning.

                    Gonzalez started in MLB for the Chicago Cubs in 1997 and later played with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Boston Red Sox, Milwaukee Brewers and New York Mets.


                    He last played in the U.S. in 2007 with the Toronto Blue Jays during spring training but was released before opening day. He moved to Japan where he pitched in five games last year for the Yomiuri Giants.


                    He also played in Venezuela's professional baseball league, and last pitched this year with the Magellan Navigators.

                    I remember that guy, he was on the Cubs for a few years.

                          From Richard Justice's blog


                          The Marlins and Rays are in first place. The Tigers are last. The Mets and Yankees are near the bottom. The defending National League champions are 10 games out, but 14 teams are within 3 1/2 games of first place.

                          Parity is the law of the land. Baseball has had seven different champions the last eight years. The NL has had nine different champions in 11 years.

                          The NL hasn't had a repeat champ since the Braves in 95-96. Fifteen of 30 franchises have been to the playoffs the last two years.

                          Lance Berkman is the Memorial Day NL MVP. It's Josh Hamilton in the AL. Edinson Volquez is the NL Cy Young Award winner, Cliff Lee the AL winner. Geovany Soto is the NL Rookie of the Year, Jacoby Ellsbury and David Murphy in a dead heat for the AL award. Joe Maddon is the AL manager of the year, Fredi Gonzalez the NL winner.

                          And the Astros, Cubs and Cardinals are bunched at the top of the NL Central. Who'd a thunk it?

                            Are the Stros' holding open tryout camps for a big league catcher?
