Your starting pitchers for today's regional FOX games:
Jake Westbrook (Cleveland) vs. Nick Blackburn (Minnesota)
Chad Billingsley (Los Angeles Dodgers) vs. Chuck James (Atlanta)
Oliver Perez (New York Mets) vs. Jamie Moyer (Philadelphia)
As noted in the previous post, most of the country, about 47%, will have the Dodgers-Braves game. I'm one of the lucky 32% that gets to see Mets-Phillies (presumably - my son has already changed the channel once. Apparently, he really wants to watch the Spanish channel today. On mute) - I wonder if today will be the day Jamie Moyer finally crumbles into dust and blows away on a gentle breeze.
I'll be here and there all afternoon, so add anything good in the comments (from any of the three games) and I'll update when possible.
Mazzone: "(Blackburn) has to stay aggressive. You don't want to pitch prevent defense." - anonymous
Mazzone is absolutely right. You always want to stay with the 4-3 when you have a lead.
I wish I was getting the Mets game. Eric Karros is possibly the blandest color guy I've ever listened to. - Signal to Noise
If Eric Karros is more bland than Leo Mazzone, then that's an accomplishment. - Rick James Bible Owner
Continuing the Chipper Jones love fest in the Cle-Min game for some reason, the topic of ball players having candy bars came up:
Vasgersian: "Did you have any candy bar players besides Aaron?"
Mazzone: "All we had was 'Chicks Dig The Long Ball.'"
Vasgersian: "Chipper should have had a candy bar."
Mazzone: "Chipper's going into the Hall of Fame. He'll take that over a candy bar." - anonymous
I know this is an MLB thread, but Breen, Jackson, and Van Gundy are on fire today with Suns-Spurs.
Van Gundy: "If I'm Popovich, I'd rip Oberto's head off in film study tomorrow for that. You know Shaq hesitates at the line. A lane violation! That's basic preparation!"
Breen: "Rip his head off?"
Van Gundy: "Well, not literally, just in the film room."
Jackson: "I've been there, he would actually do it." - Signal to Noise
The NBA! Where Amazing* Happens!
*The category of "Amazing" has been expanded to include premeditated decapitation.
