I assume that Joey is still not feeling well? Hernandez at first base?
"I think he'd be unbelievable. He's as organized as anyone in the game, he holds people accountable... He doesn't buy into stereotypical things in the game... Price looks at evidence. He's a freaking smart guy, he makes his decision on reasonable evidence." Bronson Arroyo
OK, I'm watching NYY-BOS on MLB Network and they're discussing Felix Hernandez being in on the Cy Young discussion.
Obviously, the guys on YES network want Sabathia to win it. Basically, their justification for Sabatha getting despite his ERA being almost a run higher than Hernandez's was that "well, CC would give up less runs if The Yankees scored less runs." I kid you not.
They then went on to say "You won't be talking about your WHIP or ERA in the Pitcher's Old Folks home, you'll be talking about who had more wins."
Just some serious intellectual commentating going on.

Mark Sheldon has an article up about Votto's bad sinus infection. Saw the San Diego team doctor today.
I'm prone to bad sinus infections myself...they are not fun. Some of them can knock you out for days, and even when you can actually get up you feel like crap for nearly a week. No sense in rushing anything, the beauty of a 7 game lead with just over a week left.

I'm here. Appreciate the PBP
