Did you know:

-that running back Ricky Williams, suspended a year by the NFL for another drug violation, attended his first practice with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts? He seems happy so far, but someone needs to tell him that's a maple leaf on the flag.

-that Luis Terrero is batting .339 with Triple-A Ottawa after going 0-for-14 with the Orioles? He can expect another promotion as soon as someone starts a Quadruple-A league.

-that Albert Pujols is on pace to hit 79 home runs and drive in 203 runs? And that's during a weekend series against the Pirates.

-that Kevin Millar thinks I should concentrate more on my writing instead of only caring about fancy clothes and cars?

-that I'll get you today's lineup as soon as the clubhouse opens, and we'll pretend that whole 10-game road trip never happened?
