Coop Update

So most of the Western Hemisphere saw Don Cooper injury his left hamstring during yesterday’s game in LA, and you couldn’t miss the team’s reaction … most of which is because it was Coop, of all people, who was hurt.

The pitching coach was wheeled out to our team bus in a wheelchair.  During the trip to LAX from the ballpark, the players all watched his misstep on DVD and then the plane qould erupt again and again as players watched YouTube and the video.

Had to make Cooper feel great, although he took it like a champ.

“This won’t affect my workout routine at all,” said Cooper, who has none.  “I will be able to run as fast tomorrow (Friday) as I could today.”

Cooper is no better this morning and won’t be making any trips to the mound to talk to pitchers.  We did arrange for a motorized scooter for the weekend, labeled with his name and number, to help him roll around the ballpark. 

It’s all meant in good fun.

Rose

Bulls first pick Derrick Rose will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before today’s game.

Great Post Scott! I’d love to see pictures of Dr. Don in his scooter!

I’m at work today in my AJ jersey (stole it out of my son’s closet instead of wearing my Paulie jersey) and my White Sox flip flops.

Dawn, where’d you get White Sox earrings???

What constitutes redemption by the sox or getting back at the cubs? A sweep or winning 2 of 3?

Marie, sometimes you can catch a pair of earrings at a craft show, my mom has a bizarre looking pair she only thank God wears to games. Just poking around online and I looked on google and found some … you might be surprised.. think I’ve seen them in sporting goods stores as well, not like MC or Dick’s but maybe a sporting goods store that are in the mall.

The men are rolling their eyes right now since we’re chatting all girly on a baseball blog but hey… we’re fans too, just girly fans! :)

Best wishes to Coop… poor guy, they will not let him live this down until someone else does something along the same lines!

Geared up for the games this weekend, here, deepintheheartofTX, I am blessed with all 3 on tv, even the Fox Saturday game!! My husband is soooo ‘thrilled’ (that’s sarcasm) I think he’s glad he’s working!

Let’s go boys and make them remember that pay back is a b**ch!

Leadoff hitter continued, One of the 1st two hitters needs to be a lefthanded hitter. It is easier to lay down a bunt hit, puts more pressure on the fielders to make good plays on bunts. It is also a little bit harder for the pitcher to get in an early groove, going lefty , righty or vs. versa.

I don’t know if we can get redemption (at least in my Cub friend eyes) with anything less than a sweep and a beating like we got last weekend…highly unlikely, but I personally settle for a series win. Hoping for a win today to take on the road with me!!
