Chris Narveson, his name makes me think of the insurance guy from Groundhog Day. Am I right or am I right-right? His name also would sound good recited by Chris Cornell. Chris Narveson, won’t you come and wash away the rain?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Randy Wells spells relief with D-R-O-P H-I-M. 3 2/3 IP, 3 ER in his previous start. 4 IP, 5 ER yesterday. If this were an SAT question, the next game’s line in this series is 4 1/3 IP and 7 ER.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yesterday, Shane Victorino went 4-for-5, 4 RBIs, 5 Runs scored and his 6th homer. For anyone who read the roundups last year, you’re probably wondering where my Victorino love went. Last year, Victorino was my ’09 Mark Reynolds. I saw good value in Victorino last year and pushed him on everyone.Please, blog, may I have some more?
