Thursday tidbits: Still a few more days for Ank

It’s really been a spectacular run of weather here lately. Often by this time of year it’s gotten unmercifully hot, but instead it’s just been beautiful.

* Rick Ankiel is likely still a few days away from being activated as he continues to deal with soreness in his left oblique. That’s a notoriously tricky injury, and a tough one to get to go away entirely.

* Ryan Ludwick, however, increased the intensity of his running today and sounds like he’s coming along great. He’s unwilling to hazard a guess, but it sounds like there’s a very good chance he’ll be able to be activated when his 15 days are up.

* Chris Duncan is simply getting a day off after playing a lot lately. It’s not the most imposing lineup, but TLR said he felt Duncan was ready for a breather.

Today’s playlist:
Rolling Stones, “Rocks Off”
Pearl Jam, “Last Exit”
Jane’s Addiction, “Jane Says”
Buffalo Tom, “Summer”
Liz Phair, “6’1″”



I am sorry to see Robinson sent down in favor of Stavinoa. Robinson was probably not much of a long ball threat, but he has the most potential and could have stayed until Ludwick and Ankiel are reinstated without a significant difference between him and Stavinoa.

I was at the game last night. WOW!! What a ball game. Although I must say after the near miss btw Raz and Thurston, he needs to talk more in the outfield. I know he is young. but if he truly is the future in CF then he needs to make his presence known when he’s going to catch a fly ball. And maybe he will in time. Clutch base knock too. Waino, simply outstanding. Seemed as tho he got out of sorts for a couple of innings, but brought it back together in the 8th and 9th. Hated to see him get pulled, but i know Tony first sign of trouble and he’s pulling him.

Tough not seeing many runs cross the plate tho. With WW and Carp that may be ok, but thats not going to cut it wih Welly, and not Loshe or Pinero all the time
