Well, I never claimed to be Nostradamus

You're welcome for the excellent tip from my last post. John Smoltz just got through the first inning, after giving up four runs, allowing Washington to jump out to an early 4-0 lead. Time to switch over to the Marlins/Orioles game. Go, O's!

Another great first inning for the Phillies tonight, with Ryan Howard crushing a two-run double and Matt Stairs and Pedro Feliz each knocking in a run. Jimmy Rollins was held out of tonight's lineup and Greg Dobbs found himself in the two-hole while Howard is the DH for the third consecutive game.

Antonio Bastardo was given a gift, and he took the mound and walked the lead-off hitter. How does that happen? That's unacceptable. Throw strikes, get outs. Fortunately, B.J. Upton made a bone head play and tried to steal second, trailing by four runs, and was picked off. This lead still doesn't feel safe. The bullpen may be in for a long night; but hopefully Bastard...o comes through.
