Holy shit! Hi, internet!

So, it seems that actually having time to watch 500 games this year (conservative estimate - yes, it's part of my job) doesn't really leave time for blogging. But, um...wow? 2000 hits in a day? Thanks, Jonah Keri! (Aside: I still find your articles a bit boring. However, I am really enjoying Baseball Between The Numbers, so let's call it a wash.)


Mark Prior: 0 IP, 0-0 W-L, 0 K, (undefined) ERA, (undefined) WHIP. Again, I have successfully predicted a player's stats EXACTLY prior to the season. We were wrong on Lilly, though.

Every Cub on the offensive side of the ball: Ranging from "okay, I guess, but there were better guys" (DeRosa), to "pretty disappointing" (Soriano), to "please put this guy in more games" (Murton), to "what the shit?" (Jones). It's pretty amazing that we've come this far.

Carlos Zambrano: Apart from being the first and middle names of my future firstborn, I have a feeling that he's going to be a hell of a force in the playoffs if the boys can get there.

My fantasy team: After sneaking into the last playoff spot by 0.01 of ERA thanks to a Matt Chico spot start, the Pedroiaphiles have advanced to the championship match despite a complete lack of Cubs.

Gada Qafisheh Akbar, everyone! Let's get some runs!

P.S.: Sarah Poontong, I'm off the market now. Missed your chance.
