Briefly. 

Trivia #1: On May 11, 2005, A’s closer Octavio Dotel did something against the Red Sox that had only been done five previous times in MLB history. What did he do? 

Plan your work, work your plan. 

On May 17, 2005, Ervin Santana made his major league debut with the California Angels. The first four batters he faced hit for a collective cycle: a triple by Grady Sizemore, a double by Coco Crisp, a single by Travis Hafner and a homerun by Ben Broussard. 

How bad has the weather been in Toronto? Last Sunday for the Red Sox/Blue Jays game, the roof to the Rogers Centre was open. It was only the second time in 22 home games that the roof had been open. 

So Webb Simpson won The Players Championship using one of those stupid anchored belly putters. After his brilliant putting performance last weekend Simpson now ranks 5th in Strokes Gained: Putting. DYK: He ranked 174th and 177th in 2015 & 2016 respectively. 

Speaking of which, has anyone ever seen Webb Simpson and Kevin Love in the same room at the same time? 

Red Sox radio play-by-play man Joe Castiglione, great as he is, has sometimes been known to provide some pretty useless information. Here’s a gem from last Sunday: Did you know there are 156 languages spoken in Toronto? 

The wife of former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover is facing a domestic violence charge stemming from a reported fight earlier this month with the golfer – and his mother. Lucas told deputies how “when he plays a bad round of golf, Krista proceeds to start an altercation with him and telling him how he is a loser and a pussy, how he needs to fire everyone, and how he’d better win or her and the kids would leave him and he would never see the kids again.” I’m thinking, holy shit, she’d really hate me! 

Whenever I think of the past, it brings back so many memories… 

Why, and you don’t have an answer, is there a 4-day break between games 2 & 3 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals? 

Oxymoron: Royal wedding, my interest. 

Trivia #1 answer: On May 11, 2005, A’s closer Octavio Dotel did something against the Red Sox that had only been done five previous times in MLB history. What did he do? He let up walk-off homeruns in consecutive days. 

That’s all I got.

They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other”
