    Using Cordero in a 7-1 game after he pitched last night was pretty ignorant. Then again it is Dusty Baker.

    Heavens forbid. Cordero showed him...Dusty might never use him in a game again.

    Why do fans have to have whipping boys? Baker and Cordero are going to be named as lead culprits in Global Warming before the year's over.

    Cordero's earning his black eyes. Dusty's been taking cheap shots before a single pitch was thrown.

    Was at the game today.

    Edison pitched very nicely, and it was good to see him not lose his mind after trading brush-backs with Loshe and hitting Lopez.

    He also undressed Ankiel and Glaus during that tough spot (forget the inning...bases loaded and only 1 out). Serriously. He made them look silly. They are a couple of very tallented hitters and he just made them look dumb.

    I am not pimping for Javy as a long-term solution to anything (except an endorsement deal from Old Country Buffett), but he ran out one infield hit and made a nice diving grab today. The diving grab was a real rocket-shot.

    We actually stuck around for the game and paid attention to it. With a lot of these miserable performances we stick around through the scoreboard stumper and then bolt.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    But what separates throwing barbs the way of the same folks over and over again on RZ from the guy chanting "Come on, Whiffey, strike out again, you're terrible" at the game, you know, the folks we would come on here and complain about after we went to a game?

    Personally I have no problem railing on people who struggle.
