Well i didn't get to add anything during the game since i decided to go attend today's game since it was such a nice day and i am glad i did, but just like i said it is already coming true. Craig Monroe is going to have better numbers this year than Gary Sheffield.

I went to a clinic in France once ... after shore leave in Marseille.

Don't forget to tip your bartender; those Rob Roys don't make themselves, folks.

Andy's ABs today looked like a different hitter. Even his first out early in the game was a "near miss;" he just got on top of it a little too much and grounded out sharp to SS. The third AB double was on a similar pitch and he really turned on it well and centered it.

The last 3 games, Andy has been on the pitches. He is swinging at strikes, taking balls, and hitting the strikes solidly. You cannot ask a batter to do more.

I'm very happy that Andy's followed his brothers vibe, like he is really playing like he wants to hit that ball, not like he's being forced to. A few more games of doing what he's been doing and maybe he'll hit a few out of the park or get his RBI count a little higher and get the rest of the doubters on his side. All I can say now is, go Laroche brothers, go!

Well there wasn't a whole lot that went by on Tv. I Tivo'd it and watched it when i got home and the only thing i can say is Snell was hurt when he had them come fix the mound and thats why he had them fix the mound. He hurt himself on the pitch before it. I don't know how bad but he was hurting. Let's see what else. Two guys got into a fight over Andy LaRoche two rows behind me and were both thrown out in the 7th inning. Everyone around me was thinking Snell was going to go 9, but i have to end this with Craig Monroe row row rowed the Pirates boat to this win!
