He dominated us a month ago in L.A. for his first career ML win (6 IP 4 H 0 R 0 ER 1 BB 5 K).

Now that we have seen him there is no excuse for us not to pile up at least 4-5 runs against him. He gave up 7 hits and 6 earned runs in his last start in Philly.

Lannan could use a good outing.

They both have been awful lately anyways. I'm surprised they didn't bench Kemp's worthless ass for Pierre.

If only we had the Phillies' offense. Really though, it could go either way for both teams tonight. I could see us scoring some runs, but I could also see the Dodgers putting up 10+.

I think Pierre got w/ Torre's daughter or something. He doesn't play nearly as much as he should.

Against Lannan? He's due for a money start after being a little shaky in his last two. I just don't see him continuing to struggle with his command like he has. It also helps that he's going against an ice cold lineup.

Holy crap! That's almost as bad as not being able to give away tickets for tonight's Redskins game.

Kershaw had a rough outing his last time out, so shouldn't you expect him to have a good game as well?

I'm not saying it will happen, it just could w/ their offense. They are definitely capable of getting 10+ runs against us (not all against Lannan, of course).

Lannan > Kershaw, at least at this point.

They could put up some runs tonight I suppose though. Our BP has basically shut them down over the first 2 games so they are due to give it up. We are bound to see Colome and a few of the others tonight.

That could change pretty soon, but both should be around for a while.

F*ck Halo.

outside of Halo 1, the entire series is horribly overrated.

now that my opinion is expressed...are you talking Halo 3?  if so, not really. it is very linear in nature. you can't climb anything that isn't a ladder, as far as I remember.

No climbing in Halo. You can use well positioned jumps to get up some steep inclines though.

Yeah, craigslist is the place to go for cheap tix.

Look how much comes up when you look up "nationals tickets" between $2-$20:

Yeah, Halo 3. I'm trying out a bunch of different games. Burnout is pretty good, I'm surprisingly liking Saints Row, Ace Combat 6 is the crap, and NCAA Football 09 is, of course, great.
