Game Time: 7:10 on

I never thought it would come to this, but - sighhhhh. Where the hell is David Wells? Let's just get this over with.

Really, though, when you can't beat the Reds with seven runs and your next two starters are on the iffy side to say the least . . . but I won't turn to despair just yet (as if dreaming of David Wells joining your staff isn't the very definition of despair . . .). God forbid we ever have any momentum, though, or even a three game winning streak.

But never fear: we're getting our slightly impatient Rent back today:

"I'd prefer to play every day, rather than run the figure-8s," said Renteria.

Is that some kind of metaphor for our season? Probably.

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 and to view the leaderboard); the three categories are (1) Attendance, (2) Pick to Click, and (3) Above and Beyond Pick.
