The A’s had their huge-screen plasma turned to the College World Series before stretch time Wednesday, so figured I could use that as an excuse to give a plug to Fresno State. I started my career in the Central Valley, so I have a soft spot for the ‘Dogs, and I’d love to see them finish off the fairy tale.
One of the occasional commenters on here, Proxl, is a good friend of mine who lives in Seattle. He’s an FSU alum, so give him some karma and put your good thoughts into Fresno State’s drive.
As for life in the majors, a couple of things to report. Frank Thomas will rejoin the team during the team’s visit to Anaheim next week and have his injured quad examined again. And Eric Chavez is tentatively slated to start at DH tonight. Manager Bob Geren said Chavez “would let him know” the state of his sore right shoulder after batting practice. Poor Chavez. I’m afraid he might be at the stage of his career where his physical ailments will never go away completely.
Anyway, go (FSU) ‘Dogs.
