Random Thoughts

Last night's Cardinals/Reds game was nothing too exciting...5-1 Cards...3 run triple by Jason Marquis...a batter reaching first on a "wild pitch" after being tagged out...Aaron Harang out for running into his own ball chopped near the plate...ok, it wasn't bad. But my new scoring system did not come to fruition as I couldn't figure out what I want to do. I'll have to come up with something...maybe greek letters. That's nerdy enough.

Fun stuff from yesterday...Harang's jersey for the first two innings read "Cncinnati" across the front. When I was a kid I had trouble spelling Cincinnati(usually coming up with "Cincinatti"), but I don't think I ever missed the first i.

A remarkable AP story on the Marlins 8-2 win over the Phillies yesterday. I wonder if I'm the only one who caught this:
Showing uncharacteristic control, Burnett pitched the Florida Marlins' third complete game of the season, and their fickle offense came alive against perennial patsy Randy Wolf to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-2.

"Perennial patsy" Randy Wolf? First, that doesn't seem to be the kind of language you read in these game stories. Second, unless "patsy" has become a compliment, it doesn't fit Randy Wolf. Wolf is at worst an average pitcher. Albie Lopez was a patsy. Randy Wolf ain't no patsy.
