    I would be pretty excited to be watching pizza dough rize right about now...There's no food in my house.

    I am mid-30s, by all accounts I remain pretty mobile and only a step slower than I used to be. Can the more "experienced" Redszoners give me some kind of sliding scale on the slope of descent from 25-30, 30-35, 35-40 etc.

    20-25, lost 1/4 step

    25-30, not quite a razor sharp as I used to be, lost another 1/4 step

    30-35, became senile and curmudgeonly

    35-40, pending

    Oh man. Are you in for a surprise. He holds a grudge.

    At 35, I was still pretty competitive playing tennis, and could hold my own against a lot of college players I used to hit with, but instead of running them around like I used to do, they were running me around like a yo-yo on a string.

    I had a seasons pass at Vail that winter, and we started every day jumping off a 20 foot cliff on the back bowls. I skiied with ski patrol buddies all day, every day.

    I'm 51 now, and those are bygone memories. Advil is now my friend.

    No more cliff jumps.

    I'd have much perfered to let Claussen and Hudson cut their teeth in the bullpen. Loading up on veteran relievers is the last thing I would have done. I would have dangled a guaranteed rotation spot to some FA pitchers trying to (re)establish themselves as starters and gone with a young bullpen.
