In case you missed it: April 22Posted by Mat Kovach
In case you missed it:
Colby Lewis missed a start because he was pregnant. Okay, Mrs. Lewis was giving birth to their second child. Some people have a problem with this. Since I have been through this recently, I can’t understand the criticism. I don’t hear his teammates complaining.
Wherever I have worked, when somebody had to take time off when a new arrival came, everybody pitched in to cover for the expecting parent. It is part of being a team. Mrs. Siddfinch said, “unless it is an elimination game. Then one can miss the birth ONLY if you WIN the game. Lose the game AND miss the birth, settle into the dog house for a while.”
I’ll be watching Lewis' home and road starts over the next few weeks. I have always wondered; do sleepless night before a start affect pitchers?
Somebody owns the da-da-da-da-da-da-Charge song and is suing to get royalties. I really hope the "everybody clap your hands" guy start suing and teams just drop it.
