Here's hoping for far better results on Saturday afternoon. John Smoltz is supposed to be our stopper, let's see if he can halt the Mets' offense and show Kyle Davies how it's done (and then Kyle repeats the good performance on Sunday and we take the series - wishful thinking, I know).

You know, it occurred to me while watching last year's crop of relievers struggle through more run-filled innings that while we added some great arms perhaps we did not subtract enough. Or perhaps I'm just being too hard on them this early in the year. I wonder how Blaine Boyer's doing in Richmond?

Don't forget to get your picks in before the game for Nok-A-Homa-Win-A-Lotta (click here to learn how to play); the three categories are (1) Attendance, (2) Pick to Click, and (3) Above and Beyond Pick.

If anyone is interested, here are the results and the box score from last night's home opener debacle.
