    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I've had two labs before. Cheesecakes are an entirely different ballgame. He's a great dog, but it takes more like 1.5 hour of exercise to even begin to tame the beast. He is actually very gentle, but his motor is something I've never experienced before. I think he will end up over 100 lbs. A large dog to say the least.

    Thanks dabvu. I forgot to mention that she does love her Nylabones, and they last longer than regular toys -- I'm just looking for something she can play with/chase rather than just settle down and chew lovingly for hours. Tennis balls might do the trick.
    Planet Dog toys are great http://www.planetdog.com/shop-by-line.aspx tells you which toys are toughest, but you can get better prices and often free shipping from http://www.chewy.com/dog/toys-315/planet-dog. They also sell them at Petco Unleashed and some Whole Foods Markets if you want to check them out in person before you buy them, and sometimes they show up at Target and Home Goods stores. Our dog destroys most toys quickly but he's had the same Orbee-Tuff bones and balls for years.

    Oh, yeah, my old boy weighed right about a hundred. Just big all over; big head, feet, appetite. He did calm down at about ten.
