    Used to happen a lot before interleague play. Happens less often now and it's almost always pitchers.
    What makes this year odd is that Collins was the manager and didn't put in his guys. Although Familia was going to get the save if NL was ahead and Bartolo was the x-innings guy.

    yeah. save the rubber arm for innings 10-13 if needed.
    Growing up in the 70s it was an auto win fir the NL every year. Table's have turned, and bad time with home field on the line in WS

    Need him to come up big tonight. Lotsa movement on his pitches.
    Yanks will be happy he is not batting tonight. Maybe a hit or 2 by our newbie Bruce.

    Funny because I didn't realize he was pitching tonight until I tuned in around a half hour ago. BUT I should have detected the omen when I noticed it clean and folded on my bed when I got home from work, which kind of shocked me because we've been having some loooong laundry delays in the house of late and I've been a bit vocal about it. I never expected a turnaround by the next rotation.

    So yes it's clean but I'm not wearing it. Perhaps as a sign of my waning attitude on this season, I'm not motivated to change it now that I see that d'Arnoud is committed to make it a wasted effort.

    d'Arnaud is horrible. 11 or so ribbies? Well, Johnson saved Colon from the Loss. This team is fading fast. Go Thor this afternoon

    Killing it tonight. Most wins on Mets and most consistent. The "#5" until Wheeler. Thank God we signed him. Dude shows up every 4 to 5 days and is a gamer.
    And he ain't a china doll like the rest of them

    In a year without big seasons by Kershaw, Bumgarner, etc.....he could get more than a few Cy votes, right?

    Big Sexy signs with the Braves?! Ugh. What a sad day.

    I guess, with the big 4 supposedly all ready to go on Opening Day, Wheeler maybe in the mix. Lugo and Gsellman showing promise. They need to pennypinch whatever they can to sign Cespedes. And I support that. So let's just get that done....

    Should this be changed to "Loved Bartolo"?
