a few brief thoughts as we go into night VEB.

1) splitting a 4-game series with the worst ballclub in MLB is a terrible way to make it to the playoffs.

2) trever miller will have a dream tonight that he pitched two full innings, with 4 Ks, 1 hit, and no walks, and wake up in a cold sweat.

3) corey patterson can get the fuck off my baseball team. tony, i heard he NEVER listens to coaches either. see, watch this: tell mark mcgwire to tell patterson to get on base at a .350 clip. i'll wait. . . . . see? he didn't do it.

4) stop injuring my catchers.

5) sweet jesus, don't let berkman be broke.
