Chooch for Cintron
Ever wonder where Carlos "Chooch" Ruiz gets all that energy to sustain the brutal heat of catching nearly every day during the scorching summer months? From an energy drink of course- Cintron Liquid Energy to be exact. Oh yeah, I'm gonna go buy a can and get blitz! Red Bull might give you wings, but this stuff apparently gives you the ability to be totally clutch. Clutch is so cooler.
*The Cardinals acquired Pedro Feliz. Yes, that Pete Happy. He's been absolutely horrible this season (.221/.555), so lets hope that trend continues and he helps Tony Larussa's crew lose rather than win.
*Brad Hawpe has been released by the Rockies and will be free to sign anywhere come Monday or Tuesday. Rumor Guru Ken Rosenthal thinks the Phils will try to grab the lefthanded hitting OF/1B.
*A long time acquaintence of Joe Torre expects him to become the New York Mets next manager.
*Ryan Howard to play in 2 rehab games, Friday with Lakewood and Saturday with Lehigh Valley. All goes well, may be activated for some Sunday delight.
*Cole Hamels and the Phillies go for the sweep tonight. Score him 5 runs and I guarantee victory.
