It should, yeah. Usually you're up by 2 after the 7th, you feel pretty okay about things. With the Giants it's been oh shit here we go for about a year and a half, really. So, it didn't hurt so much.

OK-This is great stuff.With 2 out in the 8th inning,Jordan Zimmermann is runnng out of gas,OK?

  So the Nats pitching coach makes his second call to the bullpen to get guys ready.

The camera goes to the bullpen,and you see Max Scherzer,the best pitcher alive,grabbing the bullpen phone like it's an incoming request for artillery cover in Bastogne and he's the radioman who has to save the company under heavy fire,answering it,and hold it out to the BP coach.I love this guy.{#Lol}

 Damn I wish the 90 minute MLB.TV replay delay would not prohibit me from seeing that with more scrutiny.I don't feel like getting up and going to the "bad" puter to beat the blackout.

Welcome aboard kid.   I guess I'm going to have to pay a little more attention to the accuracy of some of my stories now.  I know the chances of your making it to a game this year are pretty slim but if there is any way it's now looking like we are actually going to get Bill inside a ballpark for the Giants series in August.  Dad would be so happy.  I'll try to get some pictures for you so you will believe it.

 

 
At first I thought there was going to be a steel cage match with Lowell over the avatar until I took a second look.{#Lol}

It does sometimes does seem to be a wasted effort especially if my appearance winds up being after the 4th or 5th inning.  I am reminded of a game in St. Louis I went to years ago with my kid brother the Cardinals fan.  As we were sitting down the couple directly behind us (Cubs fans BTW) in rearranging their stuff managed to spill a drink on my sibling.   The lady was very apologetic and said "Oh I'm terribly sorry.  It's only water."  I told her not to worry. The game hadn't even started yet and I was sure we could spill some beer on him before it was over.  We did too.

I have him on a fantasy team and am grateful for the W, just pizzed I don't get any credit for his offense. He's probably got better potential than 70% of my batters.{#Lol}

Steven Matz, making his major league debut, tossed 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball for the win and went 3-for-3 with four RBI at the plate as the Mets took down the Reds on Sunday.

Advice: Matz allowed a leadoff home run to Brandon Phillips to start the game (and his major league career), but he settled down from there. He scattered five hits and three walks while striking out six. He gave himself a 2-1 lead in the second inning with a two-run double, then padded his lead with a two-run single in the sixth. He's the first pitcher to drive in four runs in his debut. Matz's next turn will come next weekend in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.

Well I was able to spot you thru some sort of Clyde Tombaugh shift... you seemed to remain fairly motionless (see bolded passage above) against a background of would-be home-run-catchers. I mistook this for nonchalance, and the shades only amplified this effect... but you're right that my description of your state of mind would have been projection on my part.

I was watching on the iPad ... at least when I went back and looked again this afternoon; it was pretty sharp. At work I was just using a crappy monitor. But for a couple of frames, your head was obscured by the station ID bug thing so that probably drew my attention to the correct area of the screen to be watching
