He made a bet - which he lost - so he's honoring that bet. Or at least claiming that he will for now. We all know he'll show up in the 4th inning of Tuesday's game and proclaim it over, thus "freeing" him from his commitment.
and he'll reem stammen for giving up 2 runs in the 3rd, although he'll end up going 7 strong innings with just two runs given up. you can always PM SF though.
