    Respect for Arcia's arm already growing. Rope into the corner and McCann doesn't even make a big turn. Granted he's a catcher and all, but...

    Edit: scooped by chitown, but making up for being late with a bonus question: At some point, will Arcia attempt to throw out a runner at first, ala Larry Walker's Montreal days?

    He was probably worried about breaking an unwritten rule and then having to confront himself about it.

    Those who say arms don't matter should take note of tonight. Arcia saved at least one run, but arguably two with two absolute rockets.

    Speaking of drop-dead gorgeous, I enoyed "Intolerable Cruelty" with Catherine Zeta-Jones and George Clooney. It's a little light, but CZJ is truly drop-dead gorgeous.
    I remember liking that movie. I thought Clooney was actually pretty funny. And yeah, Catherine Zeta-Jones is gorgeous.

    Some of the arms today... Are off the charts. Arm strength is at whole new level.

    You know, Gardy is smarter sometimes than I give him credit for. I wanted to rip him for wasting Perk in a non-save situation, but he's looking ahead to tomorrow's Tanaka/Correia matchup, and realizing he ain't gonna need Perk tomorrow. Giving Perk a little work tonight is the right move.

    Yeah... Not playing Pinto aside. He probably knows a few things. Like... How to toast pop tarts and what not to say to his wife on certain days... When his next oil change is.

    I don't know - it is possible we will only be up by 2 going into the 9th tomorrow.

    Easy...every three miles or 3000 months, whichever comes first.

    Is it time to stop fearing the Yankees? (We won't count tomorrow, given the match-up). At least as long as SpiritofVodkaDave doesn't go to the games (he's the one with the terrible track record, far worse than mine).
