Lest you forget, we DO have a game tonight. Game time is 8:10 on CSN.

Lohse has knocked his walks back down this season, maybe taking some tips from some of the control artists in the Minnesota rotation. He's closer to his promising 2003 than he is to his bomb 2004, but he's still getting lit up by batters just like last year. He's not a bad pitcher at all. He's not great, but not bad.

Danny is giving me more hope every time I see him, even the rocky starts. I've gone from thinking he'd just never quite work to thinking he has huge upside. He's become one of my favorite players this season. When you strike fools out and cut your walks down (they still need work) and you're sonning right-handed batters to the tune of .150, it's bound to make me a fan.
