We were talking about the photos of the expired fella that was bagged last week in Iraq. My Buddy points out that the whole wide world was shown pictures of the dead fella, but we still can't see photos of flag draped caskets - interesting. Why not after they nail the fella, put him in a body bag, send him to his relatives, let him be buried - end of story. You get the feeling that they are going to send him to a taxidermist -well, you know.
It is probably the wickedest thing that can happen on a baseball field. I actually didn't see it. The line drive hit by Lance Berkman that bounced off of the head of the Braves pitcher. I had my binoculars trained on Chris Burke who had just been hit by a pitch. I heard it though. It happened to Billy Wagner once. It literally ended the career of Herb Score of the Cleveland Indians. He was hit in the eye by a line drive in 1957. Horacio Ramirez, the Braves pitcher yesterday is OK. Bet he has one heck of a headache today.
