Summer Saturday Ladybugs #5

It's Hall Of Fame Induction Weekend and I'm worried about Tony Gwynn. Everytime I see pictures of him I can't help but think of Kirby Puckett, who essentially ate himself to an early death at age 44. I hope someone who's associated with Gwynn has thought the same thing and has spoken with Gwynn. It would be a shame if Mr Padre ended up the same way.

The Big Unit, Randy Johnson, is having season-ending back surgery. How do the D-Backs feel right about now? My guess is they feel the same way the Yankees feel right now about Johnny Damon: like they got sold a bill of goods.

So Barry Bonds called Bob Costas a midget this week. Now he says his issue is with Costas's reporting, not his height. Costas claims not to be offended. On Thursday he said: "As anyone can plainly see, I'm 5-6½ and a strapping 150, and unlike some people, I came by all of it naturally." Zing!

Bonds had things to say about A-Rod this week, as well. When asked how good a player Alex Rodriguez is, Bonds said, "Is he as good as me? Hell, no. He's better than me now because he's younger than me. But, hell no." Wow. I didn't know 'roids affected the mind, too.

On a personal note, I'm celebrating this weekend because my other blog, The Glamorous Bee, turns a year old tomorrow! I'm giving away some cool skincare products to three lucky readers. (They're unisex, guys, so don't be afraid!) Pop on over for all the details!

Enjoy the weekend!
