Mr. Plunk goes to Washington
Craig Biggio got the day off yesterday, but today the Astros travel to Washington - a city where Craig Biggio has never before been plunked. If he does, it will be a day of firsts because Nationals starter Estoban Loaiza has never hit him, and no one who isn't named Mark has ever hit him on July 21st. Mark Leiter plunked Biggio twice on July 21, 1995, and Mark Brownson hit him on July 21, 1998.
If career plunks could easily be converted into votes in the Electoral College, Craig Biggio would still be 2 short of the 270 needed to elect him president. Maybe he can pick up those last 2 in Washington.
