    Agreed. 6 innings and only giving up two runs... hard to be much better than that.

    I'm aware that some pitchers can be better than that, but I'd still take that from a pitcher most days.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    His ERA has now dipped below 5.00.

    You know what that means for the next inning. Maybe Gardy will notice the pitch count and not try to squeeze another inning out of him to "save the bullpen", which, as Chief likes to point out, will not happen anyway when Corriea puts the first two batters on.

    Come on, live a little.

    I've never had termites before, but I wouldn't rule out trying it once.

    You don't want 'em all dried out. You lose the texture!

    In Arizona... Slightly roasted would be well done anywhere else... Correct?

    Guerrier's in. Gardy's finally listening to me.

    / failed to mention which reliever I would prefer, now that I've got his attention

    In Arizona slightly roasted is how they are born.

    That is all.

    Any mountain bikers in the audience? I'm thinking of getting my first, so I don't have much personal experience to fall back on. One question is wheel size. 26 or 29? (FWIW I'm 6'1" and 185 lb, and have pretty much decided on 21" frame.)

    It's struggling to stay in the 70s here. At least I didn't sweat a bra when I walked the dog.

    Sorry, buddy. I only know about road bikes. I'd suggest heading to a bike shop or REI and asking their opinion.

    Yeah... Makes Sense... But it wouldn't be as funny as getting advice from us.

    Done that. Three shops, three different recommendations. So I'm coming here to the experts.

    / edit: Brian's observation about what I'll get here also is accurate

    I have a Bianci Grizzley that I bought almost 18 years ago. It's a 21" frame with 26" wheels. You have me by an inch, but I have you by 10 lbs. I used to do some serious boony bashin with it. I'm no serious enthusiast, but if you plan on riding on the road, I'd go with the bigger wheels.
