In the immortal words of Tommy Chong, "I'm not into time, man."


Tommy Chong also said "I think were parked man" along with "If we have to wear uniforms... We should all wear something different". And "Dave's not here".

Well I just saw the scroll below say that Worley threw 7IP with 1 run allowed tonight. His ERA is now 2.30

So... To answer your question... Based on Worley... I'd have to assume that Santana would be better playing for the other side.

Meh. Just switch everybody to UTC. Then no one will know when it is.

 

I've always said let's all go to one time.

In all seriousness... The left side for sure. His dingers come from that side and he can utilize his speed better.

Damn it, Chief! That alarm clock idea didn't work. You neglected to remind me to set it for 9pm not am.

Set your alarm for 9pm. That's what time the game starts.

I was using my eyeball... If the Right side is better I'm claiming small sample size.
