3 years ago I went to an afternoon Met game vs AZ because I wanted a chance to see Randy Johnson pitch. Reportedly it was 98 degrees but everyone was MISERABLE from what had to be 100% humidity and dead-calm!

Tracsel pitched well, (3-hitter at one point) but was getting BOOOOed for taking forever. I watched the news that night and my suspicions had been correct- in the later innings, his teammates had been barking at him to get a move-on!

That old saying goes with Maddux... it's best to take a date out to a game in which Maddux is pitching. If you don't like her, the game will be over in 2 short hours so you can get out of there. If you do like her, the game will be over in 2 short hours so you can get out of there...

Yes. I agree. For me, Halladay is probably the best pitcher (behind Johan, IMO) in the league. He's fast and doesn't need to strike out people in order to win. Not to mention how good Toronto's offense is. And as long as he's not injured I expect him to easily reach 18+ wins a season.
