HBT Weekend Wrapup

Jul 26, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

Police are on the lookout for the person or persons who robbed the Arizona Diamondbacks.

I was out of town all weekend but not totally removed from baseball. Indeed, on Saturday night I realized that I can get more games — plus MLB Network — on the dinky little cable system that serves my mother-in-law’s house in Mt. Hope, West Virginia than I can get on the cable system that serves my home here in the Columbus, Ohio Metroplex. That’s totally fair.  Can someone please remind me why I still live in this godforsaken place?

Here’s what went down while you were contemplating your existence this weekend:

  • Don Wakamatsu and Chone Figgins get into it in the dugout on Friday night. No apparent discipline for Figgins, plus he’s in the lineup the next day. Dead manager walking!

With the trade deadline hitting on Saturday, this is going to be a nutso week, everyone. I predict the rumor-to-transaction ratio to be something like 150:1. Keep clicking back here for a bit of sanity and insight into what is b.s. and what is not. Well, except when we spew our own b.s., but you’re used to that already.

    I love nutso weeks. This one was predicted by the Mayan calendar twelve hundred years ago, by the Gregorian calendar seven hundred years ago, by the Aztec calendar five hundred years ago, and by my kitchen colander yesterday while I was straining gnocci.

    Craig, you forgot to mention that “Monetball” started filming yesterday. That’s what I’m calling it since the story bears no relationship to the book. Anyway, PS Hoffmann, who plays Art Howe, was at the stadium yesterday in the Diamond Level seats, asking everyone “What is this game played with sticks?”. Straight to cable, bet your Monet on it.
