BASEBALL: Travels With Rowland-Smith

Cool Sydney Morning Herald profile of Ryan Rowland-Smith and how he worked out as a starter in Venezuela this winter. Favorite quote from the Aussie hurler with the "150kmh fastball," on facing Ken Griffey jr. in his first major league appearance:

"I thought that it was pretty cool, because even my mates back in Australia would know who he was because he was on The Simpsons"

Read the whole thing.

Heck of a piece. Though I find it hard to believe Venezuela isn't a socialist paradise like we've heard.

I especially liked "harder to hit than a one-iron down a hallway".
