Are you ready for a home run derby?

We had better be able to score against this pitcher today. This isnt a statistical anomaly created by small sample size, Jennings has a long history of futility to back up his craptacular stats. Teams keep giving him a chance every year because he gets more than his share of strikeouts, but he is highly familiar with working from the stretch.

Great start but to be fair we should only be up by 2-0. Still, i'll take it.

probably 1-0. Grud was out, and Guillen wouldnt have scored.

I'll be very surprised if Jennings comes out to pitch the 3rd.

LOL, I just noticed that their new leadoff hitter is batting .100
