All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Wednesday Woe

The Bats won tonight, but the medical report on Bubba isn't any better. From the radio broadcast:

"Bubba Crosby kinda stagnant right now, trying to get that left shoulder ready to go again.... [Bats Trainer] Chris Lapole concerned about Bubba Crosby, and that he's not able to make quicker progress. They're working with Bubba, trying to get him feeling better so he can get back in the lineup."

The Yankees fired their strength and conditioning coach. I'm not sure all the injuries are his fault, and certainly Hughes' injury doesn't seem to be, but given the Yankees' current situation, you knew someone's head was going to roll.

The Reds lost to Houston tonight, and the Yankees were rained out against the Rangers. They will be making it up with a doubleheader tomorrow.

Halo's Heaven has a two-part interview with Sam Walker, author of Fantasyland. He mentions "Bubba Crosby's big day" as one of his favorite moments. I assume he's talking about Bubba's first start.

And aren't these cute?

Sports cupcakes! Though the recipe sounds like way too much work for me, involving things like fondant rather than things like a box of Duncan Hines.

We should all write Oakland, swamp them with mail, tell them about Bubba... Look at who their CF'er is right now. It's a crime that dude is even in the majors.

I see the A's and the Nationals swapped CFers last night.

Some were surprised that the Nats didn't grab Bubba off waivers during spring training.

In any case, I think there will be opportunities for Bubba as the season wears on...if he's healthy. As long as he's on the DL, he's not going anywhere.
