    Well, I lost the radio feed...again! Anytime there is a weekday afternoon game, someone at the local affiliate switches over to ESPN talk radio at about 3:40 p.m.

    Dickerson's fly was one of the few today that didn't carry.

    Raul is batting around .350 with 15 HR and an OPS of about 22million.

    Nuts.

    At least it's not the Minnesota-Chicago game.

    Do you think Peavey's asking price for getting him to waive his notrade clause just went up?

    Wow. 20-0 in the 8th inning. Unfortunately for the White Sox there is no little league mercy rule.

    Almost back to .500, where they will most likely stay.

    I don't care who gets blamed. If you believe the clippings the Reds have a bunch of bullpen aces down in the minors; what's stopping them?

    (I don't necessarily think there are that many great arms down there, but what do I know?).

    Walt's best option is probably pulling a Masset.

    Yeah, with the injuries piling up the likelihood of playing over their heads for a decent stretch is greatly minimized as well.

    Burton has struggled since his injury last year.

    Probably time to stir some a new ingredient or two into the bullpen brew. Guys scouts haven't seen much of, if anything.

    This was the first time I had been to a live baseball game since 1990.
    In retrospect, not the best of times to go to a game - but I had a lot of fun, anyhow. The Phillips homer put a lot of energy into the ballpark.
    I forgot all about the butterflies I got whenever seeing the ballpark for the first time upon arriving. A great feeling, that is.

    That wasn't the point. The point is your likely premature designation of Burton as "toast." But I am all for letting him make adjustments in Louisville.
