I agree with this. I'll take 10 k's anyday. Maybe it wasn't the Sox, or the O's but it is a sign of life ;-D

I agree with hybrid. Sure, it's good to feel good about the start, but we really do suck. The reason why we're good at home and bad on the road is because the atmosphere of the Trop and the lack of fans make it feel like a backyard wiffleball game. The other teams get bored, loose, and fall asleep, allowing us to swoop in unexpectedly and win. ;-)

Truly amusing, thanks for sharing. :-D

I snagged Ollie off waivers yesterday and I couldn't be happier about it. My pitching staff has been decimated by inuries and crummy trades and I'm really hoping Ollie can become my number 2 guy behind Halladay now that Zambrano's down.

Shoot...I didn't realize he would be starting Thursday. I left him out of my weekly league because I thought he would go against the Red Sox.

I guess they counted the off day as one of his rest days and are moving him up.

Well, that's a smart move - supposedly LHP's have an advantage at Yankee Stadium. If the Yanks play poorly in the first two games, I might actually use him this week in my one roto league. :-?
