Tonight: Yu Darvish vs Drew Smyly at 8:05 PM
Josh Hamilton had a bit of a problem gripping the lumber in the first inning.
He tossed a couple of souvenirs to the fans.
The HBWHOF monitors Twitter religiously. Yep, I dig me some Twitter.
I follow Mat Latos' wife, Dallas, who is quite entertaining. Dallas manages to remain calm even though a ton of Cincinnati Reds' fans criticize her husband with every start.
Last night, no one could bitch. Latos pitched his 2nd career complete game on Monday night. He also struck out a cereer-high 13 batters. He tossed 109 pitches - 80 for strikes!
The HBWHOF digs Mat & Dallas Latos.
I think it might be time for another induction into the Hot Baseball Wife Hall of Fame...
