Imagine if you go to see Miss Universe, then you end up having Miss Iowa, you might get those kind of boos
That’s how Washington Nationals pitcher Miguel Batista summed up the fans response to his emergency start when rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg came up sore in the bullpen prior to the start of last night’s game. In somewhat related and most likely geeky news I was very pleased when Strasburg didn’t pitch for the Nationals last evening. My fantasy club (The Arsyholiks) ended up prospering because of his absence since Strasburg was supposed to toe the rubber for my opponent (Iron City). So it’s safe to assume that I’m okay with Miss Iowa today.
For those of you keeping score here’s a pic of Miss Iowa 2010. Her name is Katherine Connors. She is now the equivalent to fantasy baseball kryptonite to my pal Hooks (who subsequently owns Iron City). Tough luck Hooks and Iron City.
