Morning Cup of Coffee

....Waking up this morning, trying to determine why the Astros traded for Randy Wolf? I mean seriously, is Randy Wolf going to lead the 'Stros back from 12 games back in the NL Central passing four teams in the meantime. And the outlook isn't that much better in the wild card. They need to pass seven teams in that race coming from 11 back. No doubt Houston's pitching stinks, but Randy Wolf is far from a difference maker. Silly.

....Greg Norman is trying to decide whether he wants to play the PGA or not. I guess his legacy can't afford another collapse.

....The Diamondbacks picked up Jon Rauch from the Nats. Is he going to be their closer? That wouldn't really make them much better than Brandon Lyon would it?

....Is this bursar sac thing really a big deal with Peyton? I mean I know the guy doesn't need anything hurting his mobility. But here's a thought, maybe the Colts could trade for Favre as an insurance policy. Has anybody thought of that?

....The summer prospectus is up on the Mount Athletics site on the men's basketball team. We're a little less than four months away from the opener versus Loyola. That will be a good one to start against. Lots of intensity and an inexperienced Hounds team. Wonder if Patsos, and his new contract extension, will talk about ending the series after we beat them? (again).

....Think Josh Vittek might have been trying to tell the O's they should have drafted him? He went 8-for-13 with a pair of homers and four rbis in the three game series. He also belted two doubles against the Oriole Rookie League team. He's raised his professional average to .300. The Mount St. Mary's project grew up in Maryland and had to have been somewhat disappointed when the Orioles didn't select him.
