|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Last night's victory was a very encouraging win. Every regular in the lineup got at least one hit. The Jones boys each broke out with homeruns. Francoeur coaxed a walk! Chuck James continued his ridiculously simple approach to pitching. It was a very good win, and it assured us of winning our third consecutive series, and also puts us in great position for the sweep.
There was a new fan club at the park; The Langer Hands. They wore large foam hands with the words The Langer Hands written across the front. Not a bad fan club for Langy.
I also noticed something else while "listening" to the game on Fox; our new announcer Joe Sciambi sounds a lot like Joe Swanson, the wheel chaired neighbor of Peter Griffin on the Family Guy. Seriously, the next time he's on the tele take a listen and tell me if I'm wrong.
