One of the only baseball blogs (to my knowledge) in the blogosphere that focuses on the Montreal Expos. Okay, mostly baseball in general, however with Montreal Expos references to be found within!

HR, Hitting Rehearsal?

In case you have not heard, the "Brevard County Manatees rename 'BP' to 'hitting rehearsal' due to oil spill in Gulf".

When I first head this I was thinking it was MLB league wide, and how it'll always be BP to me, among everyone really! Anyway, it is just the Brevard County Manatees, Milwaukee Brewers Single A Advance affiliate.

I can definitely see the logic. Somewhat odd as they are not on the Gulf Coast side of Florida. Perhaps all Florida baseball teams should rename batting practise to hitting rehearsal, aka HR! Especially the Tampa Rays, Dunedin Blue Jays, Clearwater Threshers, Tampa Yankees, Bradenton Marauders, Charlotte Stone Crabs, Fort Myers Miracle, and for good measure, Lakeland Flying Tigers. Those of course being teams on the western side of Florida, or the Gulf Coast side. See what I mean on a Google Map.

Hitting rehearsal sounds like they are preparing for synchronised baseball, or something along those lines!

Oh, and boo BP! That is, British Petroleum this time. It is time they actually do move "Beyond Petroleum".
