Since KL & Babs are doing the State Fair and JC is doing Hawkeye football today, we are short on time and access to get the gamechat up. Hopefully, things will be filled in soon to give you the lineups and such.

THOME PASSED MCGWIRE!!!! He hit 2, count them 1 – 2, homeruns in todays game so as not to spend unnecessary time tied with one of the steroid princes (less than half an hour) and is continuing his pursuit of 600. I hope he’s able to stay with us long enough to achieve that lofty goal. But for now, he achieved a stellar mark in itself and doing so with integrity. For that, Jim Thome is most definitely today’s BOD.
But today’s game was just so much fun even aside from the Thome Taters. When a team has 12 runs, there was more than one person being pretty successful with the bat. Believe it or not, TOLBERT was the one really swinging well today – 2 triples and a career-high 5 RBI. JJ Hardy was 3/4 with 2 RBI – I like it that he’s back to hitting well. So even on a day where we have the “B” lineup out there, we just killed with the bat. We’ve had person after person go down with one injury or another and the most unlikely people keep stepping up to get us wins. So Tolby, Hardy, you boys can share a great big bucket of Sweet Martha’s cookies and all the milk you can drink.
And Pavano went out there and threw 8 innings of masterful baseball against that Texas lineup. God love him, he still has the ‘stache. And Rob Delaney makes his major league debut for the 9th inning. It wasn’t perfect, especially since the first batter he faced took him yard, but it was most definitely a good outting. And it’s good to have the rest of the bullpen get a good rest. You guys both get Pronto Pups with the condiments of your choice. Thanks bunches!
