I'm still tinkering around with the website. Thanks to the Driller Dude, I have added the Rotowire to the main page. I've also moved the standings and the trade list to the main page. For now the links to the standings and trades will remain. We'll see.

Feedback is always welcome (within reason).

Dinner with Roger Staubach

Mrs. Pig and I (and a few hundred other GPISD invitees) had dinner tonight with Hall of Fame QB Roger Staubach. The occasion was a Character Recognition Banquet for GPISD. Roger is friends with our Superintendent and spoke for free. There was also both a silent auction and a live auction. The live auction included, among other things, footballs signed by Staubach... Drew Pearson and Staubach... Tony Romo... and one signed by Super Bowl champs Roger Staubach, Tom Rafferty, Larry Brown, and... some Green Bay Packer guy (I can't remember, but he was on their Super Bowl winning team in 1997 - Doug Evans maybe?) - and those four guys were all in attendance. The Roger football and the one signed by both him and Drew went for $2000 each. All proceeds went to the GPISD Education Foundation, the oldest such organization in the state. The organization raises funds for scholarships and innovative teacher grants.

Chipper Jones hit another home run for the Pigs.

June 19 - @ Rhino Field - Warpigs 5, Rhinos 4 - The lead see-sawed back and forth all game, but the Pigs pulled it out in the top of the 9th.

June 20 - @ Rhino Field - Warpigs 15, Rhinos 10 - Rhino starter Oliver Perez took a beating, and the Rhinos trailed 13-0 after two innings. The Rhinos homered 4 times off of Ervin Santana, but couldn't overcome that deficit. The Pigs had 15 hits.

June 21 - @ Rhino Field - Warpigs 7, Rhinos 4 in 12 innings - The Rhinos and C.C. Sabathia led the Pigs and Cliff Lee 3-2 going to the 9th, but Garrett Atkins homered to tie the game.

Also, please delete the Wahoo email address for the Dallas Morning News. Just use the gmail address for him.

The Warpigs and Wahoos split a pair of games today.

May 4 - @ The BallPork - Warpigs 3, Wahoos 1 - Rich Harden went the distance, allowing 6 hits and striking out 7. Chipper Jones hit a 2-run homer in the first inning off of Ricky Nolasco. Orlando Hudson went 2-3 with two doubles and an RBI. Justin Morneau homered for the Wahoos.

May 5 - @ The BallPork - Wahoos 9, Warpigs 5 - Ervin Santana got blasted again, but avoided the loss when the Pigs scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 8th to tie the game. In the top of the 9th, the Wahoos won the game when Billy Wagner gave up a 2-run homer to Johnny Damon and Joakim Soria gave up another 2-run homer to Aramis Ramirez. Cole Hamels pitched well for the Hoos, but the bullpen collapse cost him a win. Justin Morneau went 3-3 with a double and homer. Albert Pujols homered for the Pigs.

Saturday, April 04, 2009


The Wahoos finished their series with the Zaps, losing game 5. They had gone 3-1 earlier in the week (to make deadline).

The Inmates and Warpigs split 4 games today. Here's the recap:

April 12 @Baptist Bowl - Inmates 6, Warpigs 4 - Ervin Santana got hammered early and often. Randy Wolf gets the win with plenty of bullpen help.

April 13 @Baptist Bowl - Warpigs 3, Inmates 2 - Justin Duchscherer's shutout bid ended in the 9th when Joakim Soria tried to blow the game.

May 25 @BallPork - Inmates 7, Warpigs 5 - Rich Harden had a no-hitter into the 6th, and struck out 11 in 7 innings, but Billy Wagner struggled and took the loss. The Pigs hit into 4 double plays.

May 26 @ BallPork - Warpigs 5, Inmates 4 in 10 innings - Manny Ramirez pinch hit a game-tying homer in the 9th, and Orlando Hudson hit a walk off double in the 10th. In the Battle of the Santanas, Johan won the duel as Ervin still has not had a scoreless inning against the Inmates.

The Inmates then traveled a couple of miles southeast of the Pig Pen to visit the Mavs. The inhospitable Mavs took 5 of 6, dropping the Inmates 7 and a half games out of first place in the MFD. The Mavs are now over .500 and within 2 games of the first place Buckeyes.

From the HEAD INMATE...

Inmates split four with Pigs, then lose five of six to the R. Weeks led Mavs. Only a game six rally kept Inmates from losing all six.

Inmates now 13-22.

This is NOT the year of the Inmate...


From the Mavman...

Weeks only played in the last three but he reached base 12 of 13 trips, stole five bases, scored five runs and drove in three with a home run. I can't recall a guy with that bad of a card having three games like that in a row.
