The Minor Leagues Get Lonely

Meet one of the Astros minor leaguers you may get to know soon. His name is Drew Locke and he's a candidate to replace Lance Berkman if the Puma is traded before the deadline.

That's all well and good for a guy who's hit pretty well the past two seasons. Did you know, though, that Locke may have a budding career on television? Have you heard of a little show called 'The Bachelor"?

Neither have I...

At any rate, Locke participated recently in the minor league equivalent to the popular ABC reality show, going out on a date with one of the local Austin DJs. Video of said event can be seen here.

Is it just me, or is Round Rock going big-time? First, Will Ferrell makes a much ballyhooed visit at ex-con pitcher Rojo Johnson. Now, guys are dating DJs and getting filmed at the same time! As I said in the title, the minor leagues must get lonely. Just check out any of the prospects on the Lancaster JetHawks. According to Jay Austin, they don't even have grits at the IHOPs out there!
