With each passing day, Grady Sizemore continues to cast a bigger shadow over his debauched, disgraced Uncle Tom. The Cleveland centerfielder had 3 hits including a HR off Joe Blanton in the Tribe’s 11-2 victory over the A’s earlier tonight, and the Indians remain the most impressive Beer League team going.

There’s nothing funny about animal suffering, nor do I wish to cast aspersions towards Devil Rays prospect Jason Childers. But if he can’t thow hard enough to incapacitate a seagull, I don’t think he’s going further than Durham.

Paging Mike McGann : not only does Lastings Milledge have an RBI triple tonight — the Mets and Dodgers are tied at 5 in the top of the 4th — but he’s made his long awaited Yard Work debut.

Zach Greinke’s line tonight in Wichita’s 5-4 defeat of Springfield : 6 IP, 4 hits, 3 earned runs, 1 walk, 5 K’s, one HR allowed to the Cards’ Juan Richardson, no decision.
