    Does it seem like the strike zone has lowered for this submariner?

    2 down as Jay flies out to deep left field. I kinda like this Joe Smith's stuff.

    Well, I find it not cost efficient or particularly appealing. Of course, I hate inter-league play anyway, so maybe I'm prejudiced. I can see the mood of the board is pretty tense right now, so I shall move along...

    With the Indians lineup and Arroyo pitching, and with the ...what is it? 50 game losing streak the Indians had going? I didn't expect this game to go well anyway

    Hoover warming. Frazier grounds out to 2nd to end the inning.

    Last time I checked the score on the Nationals-Orioles game, the Nats were up 6-2. Not anymore. Yikes...

    Don't leave on account of a few people.

    Personally, I don't care much for the 2 game series, but particularly with the current makeup of both leagues, I would have to imagine that schedule construction is a pretty daunting task

    If the Reds won 75 percent of their games in a season, that would still allow for 40 guns-ablazin game threads over 6 months.

    I kind of like this arrangement. Six rivalry games each year is too much IMO. Especially since some teams get to constantly play very strong or very weak rivals.

    Four rivalry games seems like the right number. Back to back? Well the rivals are geographically pretty close.

    Not a bad arrangement IMO.

    6 spot in the 7th.

    That's a fine thing to point out to the fans here btw....4 run lead is not impossible to overcome.

    Cameraman in fine form right now. :O)

    Was anybody else shocked that Frazier almost made a play on that, yet Paul wasn't even close?

    You couldn't think of a intellectual response and came up with this. Consider me not surprised in the least.

    I present a point that Dusty's lineup construction has been poor. Cited examples of Janish batting in the two hole numerous times. Stubbs batting leadoff. Willy Taveras batting leadoff. Corey Patterson.

    And this is your juvenile retort.

    The defense rests, your honor. This sure was easy.

    I'm sold on going after Giambi at the deadline as my LHPH.

    Dusty's lineup construction is the weakest part of his managerial resume. Far from the most important though. VERY far.
