Proof that Men Have Better Friends...

Friendship among Women: A woman didn't come home one night. The next morning she told her husband that she had slept over at a friend's house. The man called his wife's 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it.

What's in a name: Hunter Pence and Joaquin Andujar aka Underpants and Underwear

A few years ago, Mark Loretta and Hunter Pence were teammates on the Houston Astros. Loretta is now a San Diego Padres' vice president and Pence the starting right fielder for the San Francisco Giants.

Today, Loretta was filling in as a commentator on the Padres' telecast and recalled that his then four-year old son could not pronounce Hunter Pence's name. According to the former infielder, his son Frankie referred to him as "Underpants".

Do you remember former pitcher Joaquin Andujar? His name is not easy to spell, much less pronounce. Your blogger recalls that a few people called him "Walking Underwear".

I can still remember Coco being introduced by the P.A. announcer at Jarry Parc/aka Parc Jarry. That was back in the John Boccabella era, before Rusty became a Met for the first of two times.

My reference to Rusty Staub in from "Willie, Mickey and the Duke".

Rose is at the Vet, Rusty again is a Met . . .
