Eight games a week is not enough to show I care!

These guys with cameras on the field really bother me, but I'm old.

A two city, eight game road trip starts in Miami tonight, and ending in Pittsburgh with the All Star break following after Sunday. One at a time, gentlemen!

Milwaukee will start Chase Anderson, who has been quite good over his last month. For the season he is 6-6 and his ERA has dipped to 3.99. He is still nowhere near his pinpoint command of the last half of last year, but who knows? Maybe that's next.

The Marlins go with Jose Urena, who is 2-9, 4.18.

I get intense about series like the last one with the Braves. Ones against teams like Miami have no upside for me...only a sweep will do, and that's no way to watch baseball. Grrrr.

Craig Counsell is starting to get tweaky with his line-ups, and Jacob Nottingham gets a start behind the plate. Go get 'em, Sheriff! Brian Anderson will apparently announce the game from right field for the Marlins. So THAT'S where he's been!
