Saturday's Frosty Mug

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

So I leave the state for a day, the Brewers lose a top starter for the year, DFA a former All-Star and give up five home runs to the Astros? I may need to reevaluate my calendar. First, I need a Frosty Mug.

BP Postseason Odds: 82.2 wins and a 14% shot at the Central.

Jim Powell's reaction to the Gallardo injury was similar to mine.

On a happier note, Matt LaPorta is hitting in Huntsville and blogging about it at BDD.

The Cub Reporter wants your thoughts on NL Central third basemen and catchers.

On injuries:

O's P Randor Bierd has been DL'ed with shoulder soreness.
Gary Glover was placed on the DL by the Rays with shoulder tendinitis.
Twins OF Carlos Gomez was hit in the head by a throw while stealing a base last night, and had to be carried off the field.
Angels IF Maicer Izturis is on the DL with a strained lower back.

Some days it's good to remember things could always be worse: The Pirates had to release Olivo Astacio, a top prospect, after he attacked a teammate with a bat.

Or, the Brewers could've been forced to cancel Dr. Seuss night, as the Lake Elsinore Storm were.

Or, in the middle of a three game series with the Brewers, you could be involved in a poll to determine baseball's worst GM, as Astros GM Ed Wade is.

Despite missing a start, Ben Sheets was still third in the most recent Baseball Happenings blogpoll for NL Cy Young. Geovany Soto edged out Fukudome by one point in the Rookie of the Year poll.

That's all I've got for today. I'm still on the road for a couple more days, so there may not be a Mug tomorrow, but there will be one Monday. Drink up.
