modern record still un-tied

Craig Biggio faced 7 different Ranger's pitchers in 3 games, but didn't get hit by any of them. But, he did find time to break up a no hitter in the bottom of the 6th Saturday, hit a homer off John "way back" Wasdin, and score today's game winning run in the 10th inning. That and the Astros won 2 out of 3 so it wasn't a bad weekend.
Also, Patty Biggio made her husband proud by taking one for the team Saturday in a charity softball game for the Autism Society of America.

In other news, the AP had an article on the record chase which was published on several news sites, and Tracy Ringolsby of the Rocky Mountain News gives a clue why the Rockies might have drilled Biggio 30 times.

Now if you ask me, and plenty of folks do now and again, Park Chan Ho failed to win the final game against the Astros, failed to get a hit in any of his three at bats, and failed to plunk our erstwhile hero for the Baylor-tying tattoo because he neglected the traditional Korean frozen cabbage under his hat during the game. I ain’t making this up…. You can’t make this stuff up.

Park Myung Hwa, ace of the Doosan Bears (formerly the OB Bears: http://www.doosanbears.com/ ) had his stuff going in a game in Seoul’s Jamsil (which translates “Mulberry Room” and is a passel better than a bunch of them irritating corporate names foisted on stadiums in North America) Stadium, when he was exposed as a cabbage head.

If Park Chan Ho had used that 5,000-year-old trick, he might have kept his cool and sent one in for a good, solid, painful plunk. The record remains un-tied in part, in my humble but accurate opinion, because he neglected his cabbage.

I think the cabbage issue was a coverup, and the real problem was pitchers loading up balls with a hearty ranch dressing.
