Nick Neugebauer vs. Bud Smith

Postby Arlo » Sun Apr 21, 2002 9:06 am

Interesting matchup in Milwaukee today: Neugebauer and Smith, both heavy on talent but off to rough starts, try to get on track and show what they can do. What's the call? I like Smith in this one...

Several other interesting ones today, including the Rocket, also off to a rough start, vs. Toronto, and Juan Cruz, 0-3 despite a 1.80 era, vs. the Reds. Throw in starts by the Big Unit, Duckworth, Lowe and Astacio, among others, and it sounds like a pretty good Sunday. :-D

Sleeper game with fantasy interest: Sidney Ponson looks to right things against the Rays.

AHHHHHHH April Weekend Baseball.....what I wouldn't give!
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

The hot stove rumors are great. They are the only thing that keeps me going in the offseason. You get a chance to hear things that make you ecstatic then a day later you almost wanna cry lol
