    Breds drop two
    in Mississippi
    The Mississippi baseball trip did not go as well as hoped for the Harrison County Thorobreds as the now 10-5 Breds dropped two games in the whirlwind southern tour.  
    Harrison County lost to D’lberville 8-7 on Saturday and was swept 10-0 by Gulfport Monday.  

  • The National League; St. Louis, Los Angeles and the rest

    The way that I figure the National League will come down to the same two teams that it did last year -- The Cardinals and the Dodgers.  This of course is barring injuries of catastrophic proportion to either of them.  
    The Eastern Division will have three teams battling for the one playoff spot that the division will earn.  
    The Phillies have the largest payroll in the division but are also faced with an aging lineup. The exception there is center fielder Ben Revere from Lexington. They will have to be lucky with the injury bug.

  • Thin vs. fat asparagus

    I was catching up on some magazine reading the other day and on two occasions I read the phrase “choose thin spears” and I got so frustrated.  
    These spring articles were about asparagus and I would like to go on the record that when it comes to homegrown asparagus (and even the wild growing in the fence rows) fat is good.
    The fat spears have always been tender from the garden so don’t let anyone fool you on the fresh from the garden variety. They are particularly well-suited for the charcoal grill.
