And They're Off!

Abboud, Muhly, Murphy and myself will be at the Edmonton Folk Festival over the next few days, and as such probably won't be dropping any posts here. Well, Abboud might, and Murphy totally will, but I won't be. So it'll mostly be up to Avi and Matt to deliver the goods, starting Thursday. Word.

Feel free to locate any of us on The Hill and buy us a drink, by the way.

I'm working hard to try and finish another epic Boston Celtics post, which will be up anywhere between tomorrow morning and the middle of next week.

Which means in about three weeks, if ever, for anyone unaware of Abboud-time.

That's about right, since I first alluded to this post about three weeks ago.

Also, what time does folk fest end on Friday night? I'd like to get home and watch the 49ers/Bears game, which the NFL network is showing at 1am.

You should be good. You might miss a bit of the 1st quarter.

Edmonton. 7.12 PM MDT. Current conditions: overcast, light rain, 15°C.

Forecast: "From Thursday evening to Friday evening we expect 20-30 mm of rain."

But at least Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be sunny and 20+.

Andy,

You've got some bad karma going on.

Only moments after your boastful pride about your roster of young pitching studs, Liriano was felled as though by the gods.

And now it's Ervin Santana. From the wire reports:

The Angels, who dropped 3½ games behind AL West-leading Oakland, lost starter Ervin Santana (12-6) after five pitches. The right-hander bruised the inside of his left knee when hit by a line drive off the bat of Jason Michaels and is day to day.

He tried to talk manager Mike Scioscia into not removing him.

"It was very bad," Santana said. "I thought it was broken or something. I told Mike I wanted to stay in, but he said, 'No, no, you're done.' It was hit too hard. Tomorrow I know it will hurt, but that's OK. I'll be ready for my next start."

Scioscia wasn't as sure.

"It hit about as square as a ball can hit someone," he said. "There's no structural damage. It's a deep bruise. It could have been worse, but it still could be bad. We're optimistic, but won't know for a couple days."

After the game, right-hander Chris Bootcheck was recalled from Salt Lake City and outfielder Tommy Murphy optioned to the Angels' Triple-A affiliate.
