I got free tickets tonight. My kids get to change bases in the middle of the game. I'm not sure I can make it that long.


Thats Wonderful.

I hope you told them that if they trip... They could make Sportscenter or at least YouTube.

While it is well and good that we call for changes in the rotation, the fact is that three of the four veterans are signed for multiple years. Correia was their best starter last year and pitched acceptably in most of his starts this year.

It ain't over 'til it's over.
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

The decision to bring Kubel back is looking like a good one, more and more, every day that goes by.

If it's not over... does that mean it's under?

I'm still hangin' in there!

The worst thing about a short start is that it keeps 13 pitchers on the roster.

I don't know how much more of Florimon hitting .122 I can take though. Especially when he hits into double plays

I hate seeing Torii Hunter do that against us. Used to be my favorite player

I hear you.. even I am starting to get annoyed with his hitting and I'm as big of fan of him as you'll find.

Now the age old riddle...

How does one maintain interest when it seems a game is decided early on, and not try to beat the traffic? (especially strange to feel this with no traffic to beat...)
