    It would be nice for Hendriks to get at least one win this year. But today's lineup does not seem to be designed to score a lot of runs.

    Hey Glunn... How's things in California. I'm watching Hendriks and hoping for good things. I did the same thing watching Terry Felton many years ago.

    The weather here is beautiful and the women are still magnificent. I share your hopes for Hendriks, but he is off to a bad start today with two early runs and men still on base. I will need to google Terry Felton.

    Now I understand the Terry Felton reference. I pray that Hendriks does not shatter Felton's record.

    Congrats to Willinghammer. Could he have trotted more slowly, though?

    Felton had some stuff. It didn't help him though. He did not survive 1982. 0 and 13 is hard on job security. Hendriks has to be tying himself in knots mentally right now. Gardy tells him to attack the zone and the Royals bang out two runs in the 1st.

    Assuming that it's not a banned substance, I would recommend that Hendriks get a prescription for Inderal. Inderal reduces the production of adrenaline and performers use it to prevent stage fright.

    I just got the following error message -- "Thank you for posting! Your post will not be visible until a moderator has approved it for posting."

    Did I do something wrong?

    The site has seemed "wonky" today. I've had to sign in about 4 times.

    I've been fine so far. The site has been normal as far as I can tell. U2 are in trouble or something. Too many negative posts from the both of you.

    Would anything be better than seeing Butera get hurt (w/Mauer/Doumit unavailable tonight). Took that foul tip off his wrist....got my attention

    My negative posts have focused on my own despair not attacking anyone.

    We're coming after you, Glunn.

    Seriously, though... I think the server was just lagging a bit. I approved your post. It never should have been held in the first place.

    Maybe that's why DPJ has seemingly disappeared today.
