Happy Monday, everyone.

    Got to witness Wittels extend his streak to 55 then 56 this past weekend. Down in Miami (you want to talk about fierce heat …) as the media contact for Dartmouth, so it was fine that he got to 56 against our school since the Big Green eliminated the Panthers. Wittels’ streak is quite amazing — played in 56 games this year, got a hit in every one. I can’t imagine the pressure of trying to keep that thing going. Apparently he said he was feeling the pressure around 30, but now he’s at a point that if it ends, it ends. Granted, he did swing at a 3-0 pitch to get the hit in game 55 with his team trailing by double digits in the sixth. So yeah, he really wants the streak to keep going. But now he has to sit on it for about eight months before getting a shot at Ventura. How people do you think will ask him about it?

    Randy Winn signed with the Cardinals. Between that and the Phillies getting Willy Taveras, the market on sawdust-filler outfield help is getting tight
    Dewayne Wise to Toronto, or Las Vegas, I guess.
