My aching arse

Is it just me, or does this team suffer more ass injuries than any other team? How do you partially strain your left glut? I guess when your ass isn't all old and flabby like certain asses I know, this stuff can happen. I'll refrain from the pain in the ass jokes that come so easily here.

I am eager to see tonight's battery, though I have a work obligation that will keep me away from the TV until 8 or so. I hope the pitching half of the battery is still out there then.

Martis is one of the by-products of Mike Stanton. Isn't there another one in the system somewhere?

San Diego has taken the lead in the Strasburg Cup standings, by the way. I must admit I was not full of confidence when I saw last night's lineup. But when you are charmed, you're charmed. I'm feeling even better about the Guzman for two more years thing now. If the new GM answers the 1B question and finds some pitching, I might start getting all warm and fuzzy for 2009. A good final month is like that 18th hole birdie. You can play like crap all day - finish strong and that 110 score doesn't seem so bad.

And the magic number is 9. Nine more Ws to avoid 100 losses.

Mike - The other two players acquired for Stanton were Rhys Taylor and Yader Peralta (from the Red Sox). Neither remain in the organization

Thanks. So Mr. Martis is Stanton's sole legacy?
Stanton was the gift that kept on giving there for a while.

Geez, Mike, you came so close...

Oh, My Achin' Bacon

I listened to three innings on XM last night. No disrespect to Chip Carey but I sure loved listening to his dad a lot more.
I thought XM was going to BOTH broadcasts for games - maybe down the road. Is it Mar-TIS or is it Mar-TEES or is it MAR-tis or what? I heard all variations last night.

Everything I was given/heard when I saw him in the minor leagues had it

sha-ROAN mar-TEES

Last night they said it was

SHY-ron mar-TISS

I never heard the Atlanta crew even try the first name.
I always thought it was Mar-TEES, too.
