    Numbers etched into pitchers mound last 2 games

    This may have been addressed in the game threads from the last 2 nights, but I don't have 10 hours to filter through them, but anyway, what's the deal with the #'s that were in the back of the pitchers mound the last 2 games? I've never seen that before.

    I think maybe the Padres put the pitchers # in there.(?)
    Or was Tom Browning out there with spray paint? Perhaps George and Chris said something about it and I missed it.

    I noticed them too. Last night was 44, the night before was 30. Peavy's number is 44, but is Maddux's 30? I didn't think it was...

    They had Peavy's 44 last night, Well's 33, and Maddux's 30 all etched in the back of the mound. I'd say that's more than coincidence...

    You're probably right. Just like it's no coincidence that there are 24 hours in a day and 24 beers in a case.

    I'd say you're proabably right.

    Does Steven Wright know you are stealing his material? Good one though!

    ^need to revisit the math on that one though, yes, 24 beers in a case, and 24 hours in a day, but there are only 12 ounces in a can, so to make it all even, need 2 cans per hour for the day, to keep it all a pretty 24 all the way around

    Then you'd be drinking 48 beers in a day though. Throws the math off a little bit.

    Lets start a revolution!!!! Have you seen anything about the grassroots campaign going on, calling for a 5 day weekend? They are based out of Asheville NC, and held a rally in Raleigh last week. Great idea!!!!

    The Padres ground crew puts the number of the starting pitcher on the mound before every game.

    According to our friends in St. Louis...

    Is that so the wrong Padre doesn't take the mound?
    Makes all the routine posts.
