AT least Pelfrey's price tag is rapidly going down so we can sign him to a cheap extension!

Scratch that, his ERA is actually 54.00. Big difference.

If this guy hits a grand slam here... Cole De Vries might have the highest ERA ever. I think the record is 189.00.

Every actor would tell you that it's all about making an entrance. Sounds like you've learned the knack.

Sonny Gray might not get the win as he may not complete 5 innings before his bedtime.

It's nice that he's pitched well enough tonight to lower it that much, but let's see if he can sustain that kind of success for a few more outings before we get too excited...

Or you can be thankful that you missed it.

Look at the time... It's 9:30... Two Hours deep and 5 innings haven't been completed. There will be a light smattering of people who stick this one out.

Never got to that neck of the woods too often, back in the day.

Might have to touch bases next time I'm "home", although I spend most of my time shuttling between Southport and Franklin.

My brother is in Ft Wayne, BTW. So you hit that checkbox too.


spent a lot of time there.... perhaps I ran into him.

Ryan is a terrible GM. I knew we would regret trading both Butera AND Carroll.
