The teaser poster for Star Trek XI was handed out to lucky attendees at San Diego Comic Con this weekend. Obviously, it's an Original Series era uniform insignia, with the traditional Command gold and Science blue uniform colors. It'll be interesting to see what comes of this, but it looks like we'll have until 2008 to find out.

Three quick baseball thoughts:

- The Sox offense is giving me some cause for concern. Other than the 5 home run outburst against the Mariners Saturday night, the bats have been a bit anemic of late. They only scored 7 runs total in three games against the Royals, then only scored 2 yesterday against Seattle's wunderkind, Felix Hernandez and the Mariner's bullpen.

- The whole Shea Hillenbrandt saga in Toronto was pretty interesting to watch from afar. As you might remember, Hillenbrandt was traded from the Red Sox in 2003 for Byung Hyun Kim after he made a negative comment about Theo Epstein. Now he ticked off Jays manager John Gibbons, the last straw apparently coming when Hillenbrandt wrote "This ship is sinking" on a chalk board before a game. Hillenbrandt was traded to the Giants, where any controversey he might generate will fade into the background compared to the Barry Bonds saga, so it might be good place for him.

- Anyone notice the Tigers are now 6 and 1/2 games up in the Central? Or that the white-hot Twins have been sneaking up on the White Sox and are now only 3 games out of the wild card spot?
