Bud wants to look at changing baseball rules -- he can start by stating that mound visits and pitching changes are limited to once every 3 batters and eliminate the LOOGY from baseball entirely.

Nobody pays to watch Dennys Reyes face one hitter.

My apologies...I thought he swung at the 1st pitch. 2nd pitch may have been a pitcher's pitch but you might as well have hoped for the best and taken it...beacuse you could not have done anything with it.

The Ramon at 3rd with OC up and less than 2 outs...and this last inning.... let us hope that it doe snot come back to bit the old behind.
