And the trash talking begins from an unexpected source, the normally reserved Walker. Let's take a look at these upcoming Bashers-Sounders tilts.

Bashers and Sounders
Pitching Probables:
Bashers: Zito (L) 1-0 6.55
Sounders: Acevedo (R) 2-0 4.50

Bashers: Hernandez (R) 1-1 3.71
Sounders: Schilling (R) 3-0 3.18

Bashers: Sabathia (L) 1-1 9.82
Sounders: May (L) 0-2 7.64

Well, now that I write it out I don't really know how much trash talking I can do. Game two should be a good pitching match up while game 3 looks to be a major slug-fest. Sabathia needs to get his act together quickly after allowing 8 runs while recording only two out in the blowout loss to arch rival VORP (you know how the Bashers' fans are - winning the world series would be nice but beating VORP (ne stale cheetos) is really all that matters). Anyway, I predict Zito gets knocked around again in game one while the Bashers come back and win the next two to take the series (score for game 3: 9-7).

Sorry, no games over the weekend. It's on my work laptop which I left at work.

I sure hope some games get played over the weekend, and we don't have to wait until Monday morning for more results. Albert's just getting warmed up now with singles and a smattering of extra base hits after a miserable start, and should be breaking out with some major power soon. Sorry Mike that your boys are probably gonna feel the brunt of it, but them's the breaks. :-)

My bullpen appears to be the weak point on the VORP. Two blown saves and couple of blown holds. On the plus side Barry Bonds is hitting .486 with power :-)
Metz found yet another bug in my boxscore script. The scores for games where a team scores 10 runs or more are wrong. I'll get them fixed today or tomorrow.

OK, I finally setup the Blog. We can talk on hear in stead of email. Very fun first few games. Some come from behind wins, some ejections. A little bit of everything.
