Speaking of hobbies, I'm thinking Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson is taking a shine to Twitter. He used Twitter to announce that Patrick Corbin and Trevor Cahill will be his starting pitchers for the 2 game series in Australia.
Kristie Reiken of the Associated Press got the following quote from twice suspended prospect Jon Singleton of the Houston Astros:
"At this point it’s pretty evident to me that I’m a drug addict. I don’t openly tell everyone that, but it’s pretty apparent to myself. I know that I enjoy smoking weed, I enjoy being high and I can’t block that out of my mind that I enjoy that. So I have to work against that"
Good luck Mr. Singleton in staying clean and sober and realizing your MLB dreams.
Staying with the theme of realizing MLB dreams: I have twice mentioned Grady Sizemore and his attempt to return from dual microfracture knee surgeries. Also attempting the feat is Seattle Mariner Corey Hart. If his steal of home base is a sign, I think he is going to be okay!
