    I do. At least more than a meaningless preseason game. Come on man.

    That'll teach him to not crowd the plate.

    Long ago I was watching a national broadcast where they made the mistake of live-miking Tommy Lasorda in an extra innings game in LA. After they scored in the top of the inning, Tommy uttered something similar to what you said but even less appropriate for a teevee audience. Oops. A dumb idea from the outset.

    What was inappropriate about what I said? It was a Star Wars quote?

    98 MPH fastball to end it. Very nice work gentlemen. Always a good day when you can chalk up 2 Ws.

    Maybe I'll stay home the next two games. I'm 2 for 2 ... probably shouldn't push my luck, especially with Pelfrey and Correia coming up.

    That sets it up so that if the streak gets broken tomorrow we can blame you either way - you changed the routine, or you pushed it too far.

    Have to say that while Pimentel seemed a bit wild (hitting a couple of guys), he was still throwing 95 late into the night. He's not on Sickles Pirates top 20 lists, but he'd be pretty big upgrade over some of our AAAA type guys, and he's 23. I wonder if we could pick up a guy like him in a post waiver trade.
