Let's see if we can tame the D-Train.

It looks like McCann will be okay after getting hit on the hand attempting to bunt in Sunday's game. X-rays showed no broken bones in his fingers; all he is left with is a bruise on his left ring finger.

Here are the video highlights of Sunday's win over the Mets, compliments of David.

Update [2007-4-23 12:31:31 by gondeee]:

It seems as though Dontrelle Willis' wife will give birth this morning.

Before pitching against the Braves tonight, Willis must tend to the business of fatherhood. His wife, Natalee, is being induced today.

Willis didn't realize his wife's scheduled inducing coincided with today's outing until five days ago. He said he never considered reworking his start dates.

I wish Willis the best this morning, but I hope he'll be distracted for his start. Of course, when players have events like this they usually come out and pitch or hit really well.
