I would love to explain the blank entry that I posted earlier, and later deleted, as some sort of clever experiment. I'd love to say that I was inviting you to post your own thoughts, or that I wanted all of us to finally agree on something. Or that it was some sort of abstract entry, where you can make your own interpretation. I do have an artistic side.

Instead, I'll confess that I bumped a key on my laptop and filed prematurely (hold the jokes).

I didn't know that it landed until I returned home, since I hadn't given the entry a title. But thanks anyway for your participation.

The Sun's Jeff Zrebiec tells me that Corey Patterson took batting practice today, and Kris Benson will make his next scheduled start.

So far, Jeff Fiorentino looks pretty good in left field. It must come from being an outfielder.

That was quite a fight in the Royals' dugout last night between pitcher Runelvys Hernandez and catcher John Buck. It's not often that you see fists flying, in plain view of everyone.

None of the punches landed, as if it mattered. What could be more painful than playing for the Royals?

The meanest thing I've seen take place among the Orioles this year involved some wise guy writing down Fernando Tatis' name as the left fielder.

Very funny.

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter extended his hitting streak to 22 games tonight. He went hitless last night, but the streak continued because he didn't have an official at-bat after walking three times and being hit by a pitch. Strange.

Bad news for the Twins today: Francisco Liriano had to leave his first start since coming off the disabled list when the pain returned in his left elbow. He might need Tommy John surgery.

And finally, Northern Colorado backup punter Mitch Cozad was arrested this week on a charge of second-degree assault after allegedly stabbing the team's regular punter, Rafael Mendoza, in the right thigh during an altercation in a parking lot.

It's believed that Cozad, a sophomore, wanted the starting job badly enough to sneak up behind Mendoza, a junior, and attack him. Mendoza will miss Saturday's game at Texas State.

According to a wire story, Cozad was suspended from the university and the team, and evicted from his dorm room.

In a related story, Steve McNair has stopped hanging around Kyle Boller.
