  • 12:10, Phillies at Mets: This series is mercifully coming to an end. How did I get from being so excited about it, to now just wishing it would go away? It was only three games! The Mets will take their chances on the Oliver Perez of Death and the Phillies counter with Jamie Moyer. Moyer's been pitching well lately, while Perez turns in starts where he looks like Sandy Koufax and Sandy Duncan, alternately. Someone take the rubber and leave me alone until you play again at the end of August.

  • 12:35, Blue Jays at Orioles: It's a Roy Halladay game which makes it an event. I love that guy. If the All-Star game really counted, it would have just been 8 innings from Halladay and one from Rivera. Doc takes on Daniel Cabrera, who is also a pitcher. The Jays have taken 2 games so far in this 4 game series. I love Camden Yards, but it needs more hotel strippers.

  • 3:35, Nats at Giants: For evidence of how much I love baseball please refer to Last Night's Questions. I was absolutely enthralled with the Giants/Nationals game. Big hits, interesting relief work. More Rich Aurilia than you can shake a stick at. There was talk of how well he used to handle fly balls at Candlestick. It was some old school good times. Today the Giants look to complete their first home sweep of the year, which is kind of crazy no matter how bad they are. They're only 19-31 at home this season. Face Of The Franchise Matt Cain takes on Tim Redding. I look forward to more clutch hitting by Omar Vizquel (!!). I hope the nun is there too. I am officially pulling for San Francisco to make a run. This is probably verboten since I'm a Dodgers fan, but screw it.

I read your comments from last night's Giants/Nats game. Fun to watch.
I wouldn't call the relief work 'intersting' but rather 'oh crap'.

I've got a hunch that ol' Doc Halladay throws a complete game 5-hitter with one walk and the game lasts about 2 hours and 15 minutes.

This Phillies-Mets game is a dandy. 1-1 after seven. J-Roll isn't playing but Bruntlett just dubbled off the wall to start the eighth.

The Sillies just left the bases loaded in the top of the eighth. The Mets now have a men on first second and 2 out in the bottom of the inning. JC Romero just made a dandy play for the second out. I may be violating the MLB play-by-play rebroadcasting laws.
