A perfect inning for Yorman Landa. A big inning decides it.
The other daughter threw up in bed last night. This plane ride is shaping up to be awful.

Jaime Jarrin has been the Dodgers' Spanish-language broadcaster since 1959.
We would also like to wish a happy birthday to Moss' son.
A brilliant outing by Lewis Thorpe. Homers carry the day in Brisbane. Canberra says it ain't over until it's over.
A comeback succeeds in Mexicali. A comeback fails in Obregon. No comebacks in the other games.
I don't know if there was bad weather in Venezuela yesterday, or if something else happened.
Kennellys are keen for Perth. A sweep for Melbourne.
Lots of close games. Sandy Madera hits a walkoff homer for Los Mochis. Jerry Owens comes through for Hermosillo.
A pitchers' duel in Ponce. A walkoff error in Caguas
Two Twins pitchers face only one man apiece. Oswaldo Arcia leaves the game in the second inning.
Sick kid all last night...loooots of cleanup. Ugh.

From another record of the year candidate.
In addition to being an excellent song, this clip is a nice break from winter's icy grip.
Three days until I hit Minnesota. I'm thinking the 11th for CdL/WGOM people, and maybe the 14th as well if others can't make the 11th. On the 12th I think I'll see my friend Cheryl ("I wish I had a beard" from that commercial a year ago or so) and some other actor-types. I hope to see a lot of you dudes. I also hope I don't stay sick throughout it - I woke up with something yesterday.

Ken Roy was a minor league umpire for two years before becoming a Catholic priest. He said that his umpiring career helped him in ministry because it gave him more patience with people and made him a better listener.
Masahiro Doi was a fifteen-time all-star in the Japanese Pacific League, playing from 1962-1981.
We would also like to wish a happy eighth birthday to AMR’s son, HPR.
The last time our fearless five played a game, the cost of a gallon of gasoline was $1.30 , a jug of milk was $1 and a dozen eggs were a quarter.
Ok, that is an exaggeration, but after a malfunction in Mexico City that lead to the game being cancelled the Wolves have not played a game in 6 days.
The Miami Heat come to town and while most everyone wants to see Lebron James, I am more interested in seeing Michael Beasley. That goofball has a place in my basketball heart. The Beeze is having a good season coming off the bench with a career high .157 Win Shares/48.
Nathans says, "Hot dog!" Melbourne takes control early.
A pair of solo homers was enough for Obregon. One two-run homer was enough for Los Mochis. A big inning settled things in Mexicali.
