It would be nice for Hendriks to get at least one win this year. But today's lineup does not seem to be designed to score a lot of runs.

Hey Glunn... How's things in California. I'm watching Hendriks and hoping for good things. I did the same thing watching Terry Felton many years ago.

The weather here is beautiful and the women are still magnificent. I share your hopes for Hendriks, but he is off to a bad start today with two early runs and men still on base. I will need to google Terry Felton.

Now I understand the Terry Felton reference. I pray that Hendriks does not shatter Felton's record.

Congrats to Willinghammer. Could he have trotted more slowly, though?

Felton had some stuff. It didn't help him though. He did not survive 1982. 0 and 13 is hard on job security. Hendriks has to be tying himself in knots mentally right now. Gardy tells him to attack the zone and the Royals bang out two runs in the 1st.

Assuming that it's not a banned substance, I would recommend that Hendriks get a prescription for Inderal. Inderal reduces the production of adrenaline and [COLOR=#0000ff]performers use it to prevent stage fright[/COLOR].

The site has seemed "wonky" today. I've had to sign in about 4 times.

I've been fine so far. The site has been normal as far as I can tell. U2 are in trouble or something. Too many negative posts from the both of you.

Seriously, though... I think the server was just lagging a bit. I approved your post. It never should have been held in the first place.

Maybe that's why DPJ has seemingly disappeared today. :)

Is there someplace I can look to see if Inderal is a banned substance in baseball? I have used it myself when giving speeches and it virtually eliminates stage fright. If Hendriks could use this, it might help him a lot.

Iowa is good - nice and cool today and we actually had a 1/2 inch of rain yesterday. Although my Hawkeyes look like (seomething I won's mention here).

The boys need to get Hendriks some runs here.

A large dose of Tequila does the same thing for me.

Iowa... Percentage of Hawkeye/Cyclone Fans? Is there any reason to be a primary Northern Iowa or Drake Fan with those big programs hanging around? Is the allegiance geographical?

Me too, but Inderal does not affect your ability to perform complex tasks like Tequila does.
