First off, I would like to wish my Pittsburgh friends a very Happy Pedro Alvarez Day! For Pirates fans, today is every bit as exciting as Strasburg day, or Strasmas if you're into that, was...except I suspect that MLB Network cameras will NOT be following Pedro's every move an hour before the game.
I would like to wish Matt Tolbert a very Happy Matt Tolbert day. Yesterday was his very first career homerun that was NOT hit off of the Chicago White Sox pitching staff. A celebratory parade in his honor will be held in my living room at 5:15pm sharp.
Speaking of [former] Chicago White Sox pitchers...Boone Logan also got called up. By the Yankees. I feel happy, sad and dirty all at the same time. A begrudging Happy Boone Logan Day to New York. Although I know that they will not appreciate him and his adorableness. [Note that the adorableness comment only applies when he is NOT growing a ferret on his chin.]
I've also heard speculation that Boof might get himself a rotation spot in Boston, with a possible start this Friday. I think the mere rumor of this warrants a Happy Boof Bonser day to myself. Although, really, isn't every day Boof Bonser Day here?
