We're nearing the end of August. Tonight it's Benson (10-10, 4.88) against Robinson Tejeda (3-3, 6.42, RH). Tejeda was born 10 days after I was.
That goddamned Mark DeRosa is hitting .519 with two homers and seven RBI in seven games against us this year. Last year the Ranger that murdered us was Gary Matthews Jr. Texas isn't quite dead, so they're still playing for something. A hot streak and some luck can put them back into the thick of things. Actually, why be nice? They're pretty much done, the same as LA and Toronto and even Boston.
