Bits and Pieces

Gaslamp Ball has a slightly mutated version of the previous chat, now with interjections from McCovey Chronicles, the Giants wing of the Sportblogs army.

Meanwhile, 38 minor-leaguers test positive for performance-enhancing drugs. None from the AZ system. If this was truly random, the odds of going 0-for-38 are about 3-1 against. However, the very heavy grouping in certain teams - 8 Mariners + 7 Cubs - means either a) some teams have an almost mandatory culture of abuse, or b) this was not actually a random sampling, and our day of shame may yet come. The former is clearly unacceptable, but just in case it's b), I am restraining myself from gloating or pointing fingers. For the moment.

Gameday thread to follow shortly...
