Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Looking for something to watch last night, I stumbled upon Under Suspicion (2000), a suspense/crime drama starring Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman. Monica Bellucci is also in the film. Despite the big names, I don't remember this in the theaters.
It's a remake of a French film from the 70s, and has an independent/artsy feel. Honestly, it was the actors that drew me to the film and they didn't disappoint. It's dialogue driven and a little creepy at times. If you like Freeman and Hackman, it's worth it, though.

Finished Arrested Development Season 3 - Netflix is just too much for words with TV series.
Watched "Tell No One" - about 5 minutes in, realized this was based on a book that I had read titled ... wait for it ... "Tell No One".
Saw The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo over the weekend, excellent.
We watched Coastlines. Stars Timothy Olyphant, Josh Brolin and Josh Lucas. I'd never heard of it but it was pretty good. For some reason my wife will watch anything with Timothy Olyphant, she must think he's a really good actor or something.
The best part for me was that MWM's favorite actor Daniel Von Bargen had a small role in it as the sheriff. There was one scene that was screaming for the line "not too worried about it", but unfortunately it didn't come.

I watched this last night.
" A Player to be Named Later"
It is about 4 players from the 2001 Indianapolis Indians who are trying to make it to MLB. It is somewhat similar to "Bull Durham" in that it gives the inside details of life in the minor leagues. The critics also really loved it.
It is streamable and well worth the time of sitting down and watching.

We watched Chaos Theory. Stars Ryan Reynolds. Much, much better than I thought it was going to be.
I watch netflix via my ps3. Is there an easier way to navigate what it all has to offer other than searching netflix.com on my computer, then pulling it up through the ps3 search screen. It feels like just using the ps3 menu only shows you 5 percent of what is out there.
