I'm thinking I'm gonna grill up some salmon tonight.  I did steak last night.

None of the Nats pitchers from that game are still on the team.  Wow.  Plus look at that OF.  Dunn - Milledge - Dukes.  Nick Johnson is gone, Anderson Hernandez gone.

Kind of surprised no postponing of the game.  I guess since the Rockies don't hit the East Coast often, that could have something to do with it...

anyways, here is mypreview for the night - let me know what you think

Where is it raining? I'm about to walk to the park and it isn't raining at my house.

yeah, but on the other side of the building, too much of a pain.
An electric grill works almost as good.

I had an indoor/outdoor full size Foreman grill, but I left it outside and my dumbass old property managers sprayed for termites, so I had to chuck it :bang:

Honestly, Nat's Park is cursed for visiting teams. Seriously, how many visiting parks in little over two years of being opened have had two *major* people associated with visiting teams die the three days out of the year the team is in town? First the Phillies TV guy, now the Rockies President? Spooky. That said, I cannot get the line of thinking that goes along with postponing the game because the president of the team died. I wouldn't expect a Nat's game to be postponed if Kasten were to die the day of a game. Mind you, I actually like Kasten since he got me my incredible season ticket, so that's not a slam on him. Simply the reality of the situation. A player dies? Yeah, I understand postponing the game. Manager/coach? Again, I get it. But FO staff/media, I just don't see, not when you're talking about having several thousand people show up that didn't get told in time the game was canceled and end up pissed off. It might be a nice way to show respect for someone, but canceling a MLB game the day of the game is a pretty significant deal for someone that isn't directly involved in the game passing away. And a FO staff/media person doesn't *really* impact the players the way a teammate or coach dying would, ie. someone they deal with every day for hours a day.

edited: NM, he was in a hotel in Salt Lake City. Still eerie that the Rockies were in town when he died, but not nearly the same as HK dying at the ballpark.

Olsen's secondary signs of recovery - sharp pitches, velocity - were really good last time out.

Has the ASSCLOWN even watched a game this season, or is canoodling too time consuming? :whip:

If you say so Re: Olsen. I'll try to find a stream to watch online in class tonight. :pray:

I have watched 3 full games so far this season and then bits and pieces here and there of some of the other 10 games. Believe it or not I didn't even catch one minute of the Caps-Habs Game 2 on Saturday. :shock:

Detwiler?

2009: 91

2007: 93

http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=2859&position=P#pitchtype
I said top 5 because i posted from memory. turns out, top 4, unless I missed a LHP.  used 2009 stats so not Detwiler, but this is why I think Detwiler might eventually become Matt Thornton for us.

And, for SoxFan59 and my fantasy team, I hope I have not cursed Matt again.

Well, I haven't watched a game this year. MLB.tv is about $75 more than I am willing to pay and I am so busy doing schoolwork anyways that even Gameday is an annoying, work-ethic-demolishing distraction.

We have the NL leader in average (Pudge), doubles (Pudge), triples (Nyjer), ERA (Livan), and saves (Capps) right now. :shock:

It is 4/20. Even though I really don't recall it, I must be smoking something because I just don't believe my eyes.

Pretty solemn broadcast on the Rockies network, so far, understandably.

This is getting to be BS. This is the 4th or 5th time this year the stream has went out for a significant period of time.

I'm about ready to email to demand a refund.

Are his breaking balls that nasty?  Lots of swings at pitches in the dirt is what I heard from Charlie.
