  1. Dogs (with Boomer on mound) @ Rox are 3-3 after 2 full (in 2nd game of day-night DH) …


    … Wells has thrown 48 pitches in the 1st 2 innings … nice … and the Dog bully has already worked 2.2 IP today …

  2. And the Cards are up 3-1 on Phily after 3 …


  3. Good work putting together the lineup by Black tonight. He gives OG a day off against a tough lefty, putting Clark out in right, and NOG gets the start at second. Good hitters hit at the top of the lineup; bad hitters hit at the bottom.

  4. SD4 Trivia question to easy tonight.

    Who threw out the first MLB pitch at Petco Park?
    A. Woody Williams
    B. David Wells
    C. Jake Peavy

    Obvious answer is A because Wells and Peavy weren’t even Padres when the Park opened.

  5. 3: Marcus has hit worse than Barrett and Clark for us though, he should be hitting 8th.

  6. 5 … btw, my kind of game … 3 blown saves! … and the Padres win!

  7. I forgot Wells was here that year. Wow, a lot of us tricked on that one. Majority chose Williams.

  8. 1 … Holliday dings Wells for a pair … Rox now up 5-4 after 5 …

  9. 7: Wasn’t that the game when Gary Payton robbed Barry Bonds of a homer and the Pads won 1-0? I haven’t checked your link, but that’s my recollection (of course, I might have thrown three different memories into one recollection….)

  10. Okay, so I’m not on the Barret-bashing-wagon, but I am a little disappointed to see him starting behind the plate tonight. Maddux has been throwing so well lately with Bard behind the dish, that I really hate messing with that kind of mojo…

  11. 2 … Philly’s tie it up 3-3 in top of 6th …

  12. 11: Okay, so I checked the link. I think my memory is mostly right except I forgot about the blown saves. Oh well.

  13. 8 … D-backs with 4 quick ones … up 4-0 on Gi’nts after 1st …

  14. 14 … and you forgot Jay Payton’s first name … but it’s an interesting typo, assuming that the “robbed” happened with a “glove” :-)

  15. Dink, dink, dink … hey, what’s with Bay batting 6th?

  16. Mad Dog has good placement tonight, but the bloopers are dropping in the wrong places.

  17. 16: Holy Crap! I can’t believe I typed that. I really meant to type Jay Payton. Wow. I need more sleep….

  18. Philly starting to scare me….we really need them to lose tonight.

  19. This is nice havin’ KK in the 3-spot with the first 2 guys getting on!

  20. 20 … Mets lose … if they keep that up, we won’t have to worry about Philly :-)

  21. 1 – Dogs get 3 … now up 7-5 after 5-1/2 …

  22. I like seeing Gorzelanney struggling in the 1st inning. Good indication they will have to go to the pen early.

  23. Are you guys ready to get pissed off at Barrett for blowing this opportunity? Because I sure am!

  24. 22: Except we’ll have to worry about the Mets….

  25. 25 … good ‘nuf, huh?

  26. All right, Barrett! Way to avoid being a scapegoat for at least one at bat.
