Guesses as to how long until Gray gives up a home run?

Thanks Dave.  Was watching the pregame ST Louis show because that was what is available on MLB TV.  They showed some snippets of the ceremony to honor Pujols.  Rizzo gave him a plaque and Davey gave him some hugs.

Alexa Datt was cohost of the pregame show.  I believe she is a DC area person and was on NBC Sports Washington?  Could have her confused with some other bleached blonde.  Al Hrabosky was the co host looking like a very old Mad Hungarian.  Speaking of white hair. watching the Giant broadcasts last night Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow have so much white hair on their heads and faces that they looked like two Antarctic explorers as they bundled up against the SF chill.

Datt is from Montgomery County and went to UMd. I only know her from MLB Network, where she's just another face.

Well a much prettier face than Verducci and some others.

I was going to predict a HR by someone at the bottom of the order after Gray dominating the top, so with 8 and 9 coming up, we'll see if I'm right. Let's hope not.

After Soto's non-play in RF, Gray had a disgusted look. (Then Gray did his part to give up that first run)

Elvir is boycotting because Thomas is leading off.

Note: the Nats' Buddy Lewis was a fine ballplayer, with three or four seasons cut away because he flew C-46 transports over The Hump in the Burma-China Theater during WW2.

Gray threw 70 innings in the majors last year and 15 in the minors. He’s at around 170 this year. Might be time to shut him down. Way too soon to call him a bust after not even a full major league season.

MLB TV plays the same commercials over and over. The last couple days it has been the Punic hair commercial. Gross.

Elvir had Charlie and Dave on the radio while getting puked on by a small child.  It seemed fitting given the game so far.
