Daily Minyan – June 2, 2009

On this date in 1935,  Babe Ruth announces his

retirement as a player at age 40.

On this date in 1941, New York Yankees first baseman

Lou Gehrig dies of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at age

37 in New York. From that time on, the illness is known

primarily as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

 

Below is one of their last pictures together as active

players.

 

Nothing of that importance happened on Monday, so let’s just go to the update.

 

 Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers

Brad didn’t play in Monday’s Dodgers loss to the D-Backs.

 

 Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers

Ryan went 0-for-4, with a strike out in the Brewers loss to the Marlins. His average decreased to .309.

 

 Craig Breslow, P – Oakland A’s

Craig pitched 1 and 1/3 innings and took the loss Monday.  He entered a tied game with 2 outs in the 6th, got the final out and then pitched a scoreless 7th inning.  He allowed a leadoff walk to Scott Podsednik in the eighth inning who came around to score on Jim Thome’s 550th home run.  His ERA rose to 5.14 and his record fell to 1-4.

Just goes to show that leadoff walks will come back to haunt you!
