Friday's fish fry

Blogging will be light today...was off for much of the day doing family stuff.
But there's time for a few things...

BASEBALL DIARY: the Tigers lost last night to Baltimore, 5-1. Armando Galarraga, who's been struggling as a starter, pitched better. But the Tigers went only 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position. Manager Leyland wasn't happy...and rightly so.
But the Cubs lost to the Dodgers, 2-1. They had big chances in both the 8th and 9th innings, but couldn't make them pay off. Frustrating...meanwhile, you have to hand it to the Dodgers, who have barely skipped a beat since Manny Ramirez's suspension. They continue to have the best record in baseball.

SOTOMAYOR UPDATE: Charles Krauthammer has it right today, on what the Right should do:
"Use the upcoming hearings not to deny her the seat, but to illuminate her views. . . . The argument should be elevated, respectful, and entirely about judicial philosophy."
Note though that Sotomayor and her backers are a bit on the defensive today...
