Our Tragic Number is 2. It is amazing that it is still larger than 0, but it is. I have to admit, we're in that part of the season where I had to decide whether to TiVo the A's game tonight or the new Dylan documentary. Of course, I picked the A's game... but I had to think about a split second first.
Gotta admit, I'm pretty down though. Down in the Dumps... ho ho. Blah.
The usual AP Wrap Up.
Spal reports from Last Dump FJM finally took on that Bruce Jenkins article from last week.

I don't care if a pitcher calmly walks off the mound or transforms into a giant hovercraft and levitates back to the dugout. I just want him to have a good WHIP. Yes, "WHIP."
Heh heh, Haren would be a way better signing if he could transform into some kind of armored spaceship.
Okay, back in Diegoland, we are nearing the final showdown. Three more episodes to go.
