Curses Soto, just 1 grand slam is all I ask. Eat that extra bowl of Wheaties and get it done next time!

Ah, so the COL game is Colorado's broadcasters, the AZ game is Len & Mick. Meh.

COME ON BYRD! Losing the ball in the sun is such fail. I hope he gets it together before the season because that will get embarrassing.

I just flipped over to the COL game. I don't want to bear witness to Marmol's appearance.

No errors in the boxscore on MLB. Was it a serious mistake?

At least we know that he won't be blowing a save in this one.

As Mick said, you can't get an error on a ball you can't see.

Which I think is bullshit, but whatevs.

Just curious. How do we feel about Byrd in the 2-hole? I'm not sure if I like it or not...

Mick's description of the potential waffle cone disaster made me like him a lil' bit more.

Given his typical at bat, terrible.

I want to believe he'd be a great 2-hole hitter, but his patience comes and goes something awful. Sometimes he's a real mensch, battling like crazy, and then a lot of the time he wails away at the first pitch.

So, Belliveau comes in with bases loaded and proceeds to walk his first two batters on eight pitches, looks like.

Somebody's not happy he got reassigned to the minors. :wacko:
