Pedro MartinezWill someone just sign him already?  He’s not that old.  He showed he can pitch in the WBC.  And, he’s gotta be better than Oliver Perez.  However, it’s a different AL East team that’s looking at him now.  The Phillies.

But, what does this say about them and their rumored desire to acquire Roy Halladay?

Katy PerryPoints of Interest is the daily link dump for your morning or afternoon commute in and out of Souvenir City.  We’ll be throwing together some other stops from out there in blogdome and the interwebs to peak your interest.  Some of them will actually be what some might consider educational.  Most of them, are going to everything but that.

Apologies… AGAIN.  Little power outage in the Chicago Area this morning so our internet hasn’t been up.  It’s Friday!  And it’s summer!  We hope that many of your employers are giving you summer hours.  Which means by the time we get this up, many of you will be about an hour from getting out of work.  Hey, that’s a good thing.  We’re waiting on our Big XII writers today and hope to have that preview for you.  And UFC 100!  Katy Perry for your viewing enjoyment.

For those of you married folk out there, be careful when complaining about the wife’s cooking.  She might attack you……..This is why you don’t do running of the bulls.  You might get gored to death……..Cops arrested some guys dressed as Superman and Batman in Times Square……..disecting the $17 trillion divorce we’ve got on the horizon with China……..McNair story only gets stranger.  He taped suicide prevention ads the week before his girfriend went totally bat-shit crazy.

Erin AndrewsPoints of Interest is the daily link dump for your morning or afternoon commute in and out of Souvenir City.  We’ll be throwing together some other stops from out there in blogdome and the interwebs to peak your interest.  Some of them will actually be what some might consider educational.  Most of them, are going to everything but that.

Apologies for the lateness of the afternoon links today.  We were reading a really long, but informative article on another site.  And had a conversation.  Regardless, today was a short day because we’re running at half speed after not getting a ton of sleep last night due to the 5 a.m. airport drive today.  Tomorrow, we PROMISE to get you the MLB Power Rankings, Big XII Preview and some NFL info.  We’re looking at fantasy football, let us know if you’re interested in it.  Erin Andrews, just because we feel bad for her taking guff on all this ball stuff.  Hopefully, she’s watching…

We only know one married guy in Florida that read our site?  JPQ, did you destroy this hotel room?……..The Big O with a big check out of some chick’s backside.  He’s still got it!……..Senator paid $96 to keep family quiet of his mistress.  That’s the price of silence?……..Franken rising, Palin falling.  Somehow, we’re not surprised……..Yes!  The unemployed need more help!  Champion this cause!……..

Erin AndrewsSorry, Erin.  We’re using you to pimp our blog.  Yes, we like the eleventy billion others, got the Twitter post about Erin Andrews taking a foul ball off the chin yesterday night.  It’s a story and we’re sure that ESPN will keep the sideline princess off the air for a while to avoid it.  But really people?

She took a ball off the face.  The Google search engines can only take so much.  And we need them to search for other things!

chadjohnsonTo be honest, we’re almost glad that Fidel Goodell has decided to do this.  Chad OchoCinco was really just saying he would be tweeting during games as a publicity stunt designed to garner more attention to his middle school I’m-the-cool-kid-pay-attention-to-me routine.  But, to be honest, we hope he focuses more on making the Bengals a decent team this year.

Now, this isn’t to say that we think NFL players should have their right to express themselves taken away.  We just want the focus to be more on the games, not the players.

wandy-rodriguezAstros 5 – Pirates 0: It was against the Pirates so it’s really not that impressive.  Nevertheless, Wandy (ugh) Rodriguez picked up his 8th win of the season while striking out 11 in this one.  Big Puma (anytime we can mention that nickname, we do) is only hitting .277 but that .402 OBP is very impressive.  Long shot from a season ago, but still a franchise 1B.  Do the Astros trade someone like Wandy since they in a slight rebuilding mode?  We suggested Roy Oswalt a while back.  We think it’s time to blow up that project and start over.  The NL Central is there for the taking in the next 3-5 years.  Side-note:  When you Google image Wandy – That card comes up like 900 times?  What the hell?
