DLD 8/3: Whaaaa!

Nod Apricot.
Nod Apricot/OnTheDL. The Loiaza V Escobar matchup yesterday was well, frightening.  But as someone valiantly pointed out in yesterdays GT, "we won this matchup earlier this month".  True, but Juan "I found my power in this catalogue" Rivera touched him up for two solos, Vlad hit one out about as hard as I've ever seen a ball hit in person (thanks again Skwid!), and The Big Hurt won it for us off us Shields.  The only thing alike about these two games was that K-Shields lost it for em' in the end.  You know where the recaps are, so I'll point you to the home-team reaction to Payton's little tirade.   "Last time we played here, he was showing off like he's the toughest guy on the field," Kelvim Escobar said of Payton. "I wasn't surprised at all with what he did today." We don't play these jokers again until late September, so we'll revisit the issue then.  

M*A*S*H update.  Crosby likely to the DL (Rouse likely to get the nod), Payton to get X-rays on his temper tantrum (possible Hiram or DJ to get recalled), Milton's temp back up & Sourkraut threw a bullpen session.  source.

The only AL West contest today is TEX(54-54) V LAAOA(55-52).  Millwood against The Good Weaver.  Watch out for Vlad:  

Veteran outfielder Vladimir Guerrero also will try to keep his impressive hitting streak against the Rangers alive. Guerrero has hit safely in all 42 games he has played versus Texas, batting .440 (73-for-166) with 14 homers, 33 RBIs and 35 runs.
