Ducks Win, Earn Playoff Berth: So, the Ducks-Pride regular season series will now be worthless…well, maybe. With the Ducks down, 4-2, Justin Davies came up huge by driving in two runs and starting a rally…his teammates took it from there and the Ducks were in the playoffs.

So, while the Ducks-Pride series means nothing as far as playoff spots go, it will provide an interesting preview for their playoff matchup. It will be interesting to see how both managers approach this series. If I’m Don McCormack, I probably let Bill Pulsipher and Matt Beech sit this one out so that the guys on Nashua who haven’t seen them yet don’t have an advantage.

Mike goes on a tangent about Scott Patterson

Scott Patterson (The Pitcher) Update: Lancaster Barnstormers P Scott Patterson, who I hope doesn’t mind that I have a little fun with him, is 3-2 with a 4.92 ERA in 26 appearances. Nine of his 26 games have been starts, and he also has five saves.

Scott Patterson (The Actor) Update: Did you know that Scott Patterson the actor once played a baseball player on the HBO show Arli$$? Patterson played Dan Manville, a superstar player who just hit his 500th home run and had difficulty getting the ball from the bullpen coach who caught it. Manville wanted the ball in the Hall of Fame, but the bullpen coach wanted $1 million for it. On a side note, Arli$$, Cheap Seats and Sports Night are probably my three favorite shows of all-time. And there’s your Scott Patterson (The Actor) Update of the day.

Scott Patterson (The Actor…and pitcher?) Update: One of our regular readers, Allison, sent me an interesting e-mail. Here I am thinking that the only Scott Patterson who was ever a professional baseball player was the guy in Lancaster, but alas…there is another. Scott Patterson (The Actor) was also a professional baseball player in the 1980’s. He pitched in the Yankees, Braves and Rangers organizations. This makes my random updates all the more cool.

For those of you wondering what the hell I’m talking about, Scott Patterson (The Actor) plays Luke Danes on Gilmore Girls, easily one of the best shows on TV today. Granted, it helps that Lauren Graham is the hottest thing on the planet. – Mike Ashmore
