Opening Day Countdown: 28

Let’s see if I can come up with a post every day of the rest of the offseason. Today, there are 28 days left until Opening Day on April 6.


was the number of strikeouts, and the number of hits surrendered by Francisley Bueno in the Dominican Winter League this year. Sure, I sort of had to reach for a number today, but I wanted to share this snippet from Bueno’s official player page on the Chasers website:

Signed by the Kansas City Royals as a Minor League free agent on Nov. 17, 2011. … Signed by the Atlanta Braves as a non-drafted free agent on Feb. 16, 2006. … Was ejected in his Major League debut on Aug. 13, 2008 for throwing at the head of the Cubs’ Alfonso Soriano. …

That certainly is more interesting than most tidbits in those player bios. And I suppose that made for a more memorable big league debut than many relievers get. Also, it is his only Major League appearance to this day. I always say, if you only get one shot, you might as well throw at somebody’s head?

DISCLAIMER: head injuries are not actually funny. My life is sort of in ruins thanks to having suffered one too many concussions. More about that in a later post.
