That's the thing that always makes me sad about Bonds. We know pretty well exactly when he started taking steroids. If he had never touched the stuff, he would easily be considered one of the best of all time -- he already was once he started juicing. 3 MVPs, 8 Gold Gloves, 8 All Star Games before he got jealous of McGwire and Sosa.

To quote Churchill, "Man's desire to be remembered is colossal." Almost as colossal as Barry's forehead.

Hoping Gallardo breaks out of his funk tonight vs. Houston, and I'm streaming Tyson Ross @ Seattle. He'll be my last streamer for the time being, with Morrow off the DL tomorrow.

Since Philly doesn't exactly hit LHP well (same OPS vsLHP as the Mets for Chrissake), I'm tossing Clayton Richard at Petco vs the Phillies. Gotta sit Lilly @ the Cubs later in the week as a result. Oh well. Here goes nothin'.

Cole Hamels last two starts in his home town San Diego, have been very fruitful for him. 16ip, 1er. 2 wins.

Im thinking of sitting Lester vs Anaheim. whir

I wouldn't be sitting Lester. 3 straight quality starts and Beckett handled the Angels just fine.
