Oh right. I need to find a line up...

Er, that too.

Feel free to add something about pitch count.

A cogent movie reference (Princess Bride perhaps?) would not go amiss.

But yeah, in a word, that is how it is done.

That's exactly how its done but only if you don't actually believe its true. That is what Spring Training is for.We make fun of those fans that make that kind of hindsight, unreasonable comment during the season.Then once the regular season arrives we become the fans that make that kind of hindsight, unreasonable comment but no longer believe its hindsight or unreasonable. There should really be an instruction manual for TD commentary. I'm thinking a good project for Randball.

Split squad.

 

Odorizzi started again the Phillies.

 

With the bats of Cruz, Donaldson and Sano behind him.

Now you tell me.

I only noticed a few minutes ago.

 

I blame the long and dreary winter and old age.

 

Mostly winter, though.
