Midweek Notes

* Harvard beat URI today, and freshman Dan Zailskas had a nice start. Matt Vance homered. They've asked him to do different things this season--hitting lower in a less powerful order, playing third (saw him make two incredible plays there at Columbia). His numbers won't be what they were last year, but he may be the most important player on this team.
* Brad Unger is the new captain... of Harvard Harvard basketball, which has been in a news a bit lately.
* After yesterday's makeup doubleheaders, Brown and Harvard are tied atop the division lead, two games ahead of Yale. The (other) Bulldogs come to town this weekend. I will not be there, but I pray that someone brings a video camera. Yale Coach John Stuper goes nuts every once in a while out there, and the last time he hit Cambridge, he got tossed from a game and threw the single most spectacular on-field tantrum I've seen in person, leaving destruction in his wake. I'd love to see something like that up on Youtube.
