Wild Card/Monday — 8.8.11

All those who have won free tickets to the opening day of the North Idaho Fair must pick them up by 5 p.m. Monday. I'll be taking a 2-week vacation to enjoy this viewtiful weather beginning Wednesday. (Cindy's already warming up in the bullpen.) So I'll be indisposed and not taking calls at home after Tuesday evening. BTW, if you hear any rumors about latest buyout involving us SR oldtimers, don't worry. I'm not going anywhere -- except on vacay. Hucks Online will continue until they drag my battered, bleeding body outtahere. Now, for your Wild Card ...
