Before you begin to prepare for this evening's big game in which two groups of guys will throw and kick an oblong ball made of pigskin through a giant "H", here's your Sunday morning dose of baseball news. Remember--we're only 15 days away from the day that Mets' pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie. Hooray! Enjoy the game tonight and Go Giants (sorry, Jets fans)!
Bill Madden put out something interesting in the Daily News yesterday, regarding the potential sale of the Dodgers and how the price of that team could affect the Mets' worth. Here's hoping that the Wilpons decide they'd rather cash the team in for $3 billion than hang onto it and continue to bleed cash.
There have been some recent pictures of the Marlins' new stadium circling around the net the last few days, most notably the Marlins' home run celebration contraption, which looks to be nearing its completion. The stadium's backstop aquariums are also complete and the team tested their strength by having first baseman Gaby Sanchez throw baseballs at them as hard as he could.
Tim Lincecum says that he is in the best shape of his life, though this sounds a bit closer to the truth. Lincecum lost 22 pounds, going from 197 down to 175, mainly by working out and not eating hamburgers. Looks like he had quite a usual order at In-N-Out Burger.
Finally, the restaurant that Albert Pujols partially owned in St. Louis has been given a new name. Formerly known as "Pujols 5", the restaurant will now be called the "St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame Bar and Grill". No word on what will become of the giant Albert Pujols statue outside of the eatery's entrance.
