Davy sounds particularly bad tonight!   Hope he's Ok!

Glad I'm not the only one that noticed that. He seems like he gets winded easily this season.

That's what I've been thinking too.  Especially when the audio was open before they cut in with the video.

From the AP report:

Quote
Washington manager Davey Johnson was horse when speaking with reporters before the game. "I don't know if it's yelling at umpires or the pollen in the air," Johnson joked. "I'll have a designated yeller on the bench."

I've had a hell of a time this spring with my allergies as well. It must be a bad spring, cause I hardly ever have allergy problems.

Me too!  Sneeze sniff cough wipe itchy eyes!

There is a coating of pollin on my car.  Maybe a little rain will help tamp it down!

I'm just watching parts of the game now, so forgive me if this has been said, but when Gio is throwing his curve for strikes he is unbelievable.

yeah, that's what his teammates were saying, he's got one of the best curve balls in baseball.

I thought Ross Detweiler's curveball was nasty when it was on, but Gio's make it look like a straight fastball.

Some incredible team that wears red, and it's not the Phreakin' Phillies.
