    Why in the hell do you bring in a LHP to face 3 straight righties?

    Wow why do you think Mercker is so bad, he's a solid pitcher.

    1 out.

    Since coming off the DL, he's been rocked.

    Today...so far, so good.

    Absolutely right WV, I just remember what we've seen his last 3 outings and its disheartening.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I know. I just fear the return to the earlier Hammond. It's coming.
