-On this day in 2001, Larry Bowa was named NL Manager of the Year. The unfortunate side effect of this one-year genius of Bowa was three more years of Bowa.
-In more serious matters, Tim McGraw's song "Live Like You Were Dying" was named song of the year Thursday during the 11th annual Inspirational Country Music Awards Show.

-Ryan Howard is in danger of becoming soft, hanging out with the likes of Todd Pinkston. Someone get that kid some tougher friends.
-On the lighter side, its also the birthday of Lionel Simmons, the beloved L-Train.
