Bored? Watch the Beavers!

Please note, this is a non-pornographic suggestion....

With the M's off today, I've been watching the Portland Beavers game on FSN.  

What's so interesting about the Hated Rivals' AAA club?   Well, the starting pitcher for the Beavs is Dirk Hayhurst, who's moving out of the bullpen to get some starts.   Who's Hayhurst?   He's the guy who blogs at BA in the 'non-prospect diary.'    His writing has really attracted some attention, and he's gotten writing gigs elsewhere.   

You may remember Dave Cameron drawing attention to Hayhurst in this post.


In addition, the game features a number of A's prospects, from Travis Buck to Wes Bankston (an ex-Rays prospect...yeah Jeff, I said RAYS).   All in all, it's a decent enough off-day distraction, and while the NBA game is close... it's baseball.

 

Fun fact:  typing on an eee pc is next to impossible if you have big hands.   I have mistyped every single word of this fanpost, but do not wish to encroach on JI's territory.
