  • 12:10, Padres at Mets: Rubber match of this series pits Josh Banks against Johan Santana so that can only mean one thing. Santana will leave in the 8th with a 3-1 lead before the bullpen blows it. You can BANKS on it. Bwaaaaaaahaha.

  • 1:05, Marlins at Phillies: They've split the first two games now Chris Volstad takes on Cole Hamels. It's a tough one to call. Hamels is good and the Marlins were shut out last night, but Volstad did write Candide. Toss up.

  • 2:15, Cards at Dodgers: WILL Ryan Ludwick homer for a sixth straight game? Clayton Kershaw will try and prevent that as well as a sweep. Kylohse goes for St. Louis.

  • 3:05, Nats at Rockies: First game of a doubleheader. Jason Bergmann takes on Jeff Francis. Rockies pitching coach Bob Apodaca says Francis is feeling good. 100% of the time Apodaca is right all of the time. APODACA.

Is the "Today's Afternoon Games" or "Tonight's Questions"?

live glog?

No glog today. That's Wednesday. Although I am looking at Monday's Saratoga form for you.

thanks. The Daily Racing Form web site is blocked where I work.

I had no idea Richard A. Dysart was even sick.

@ Gorge - well his name is Dick, and contains "Dy". That should have given it away.

fishie fishie... Jeremy Hermida is going to hit 3 home runs today.

Wait a minute...Brian Giles...Sean Casey...JD Drew...when did the Red Sox move to the National League?

@UTFLW, don't forget J. Bay

APODACA is an abecedarian.

I knew I was forgetting someone. And we're doing it in true Boston style...as Aryan as possible.

Dan Murphy is my new BF.

And I was looking forward to a live blog.

@metschick

you still can look forward to a liveglog all the way to next wednesday.

Next Wed., I'll be loopy from a dental procedure.

Hmmm, I say that like it's a bad thing!

3-1 Mets after 6. CTC's prophecy may came true.

CTC - I'm praying you're wrong on the bullpen blowing it.

Yet, I know that's the natural conclusion.

Thanks to the two Reyeses, the Mets get the DP. Whew.

The bullpen gets to delay their blowing it for another inning.

Hamels just broke up Volstad's no-hitter. In the sixth inning. Fucking Phillies.

In the fifth inning. I DONT CHECK FACTS WELL.

@UU/Metsy

You guys thought I was making that thing up? I got the whole script for the game this morning. NAPSTER BABY!

The important thing is - are they still losing?

Yes, yes they are.

HERE WE GO IN THE NINTH FOR THE METS

3-2 lead, Schoeneweis in to pitch.

Fucking Gerut.

WHEE

Sorry Metsy

:(

If I know it's coming, why do I still feel disappointed?

CTC'S PREDICTION WAS 100% CORRECT.

100%.

it's not fun, it's not funny being a Mets fan or a Santana owner.

"Santana will leave in the 8th with a 3-1 lead before the bullpen blows it."

THAT EXACTLY HAPPENED

even if my teams season is in the shitter I can still laugh at the mets.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSS

Alright, kiddies, I'm blowing this joint.

WIIIIITCH!

seriously CTC, get your ass to the nearest OTB and start wagering heavily, that or jump on the next plane to Vegas.

WOOOO!!!

Alright, now I'm really leaving for reals.

I will now make this good pitcher disappear, and replace him with a mediocre AAA scrub! APODACA!

So to recap,

CTC long term predictions: FAIL

CTC at short term predictions: GREAT SUCCESS!

/Borat jokes are so old that they're funny again
//shits pants

Enjoy your David Wright walkoff tater tot, Metsy. YOU'RE THE ONLY METS FAN I LIKE

Walkoff homers are so passe.
