1. Cat Osterman and the #2 Texas Softball Longhorns lost their first two games of the Big 12 tournament and were quickly eliminated. Cat pitched in relief in the first game to 8-seed OK State after Meagan Denny had the top-seeded 'Horns down 0-2 in the fourth. (They lost 2-1). Their second loss, to 4-Seed Texas A&M (#16) was definitely Cat's worst start of the year, 5 runs on 5 hits in 5.1 innings: Solo HR and Grand Slam. Cat did get named Big-12 Pitcher of the Year for the fourth time. The seedings for the Softball College World Series are announced tomorrow night.

2. Rob Bowen had a foul tip dislocate his thumb on Thursday. He's on the 15-day DL and expected to be back at the end of that. His number so far? .435/.533/.696 in 23 ABs. As for fielding, well give him more of an "I" than on hitting. Runners are 2 for 2 in stealing bases and he's had two passed balls in 66.2 innings caught.

3. Jose Lima got another start yesterday for the Mets, against the Brewers. He brokedown in the fifth inning with two outs. 5ER in 4.2 IP, 2K, 3BB. But the biggest development was the fact that he's got his blond hair pulled back in braids and then tied into a ponytail. Unfortunately, this is the best picture of it:
