Hope that helps ease the pain a bit. Victor Zambrano tries to follow up his 8+ inning, 1-run performance from last week tonight against the same crummy Houston offense that Pedro laid waste to last night. Doug Mientkiewicz is nursing something or other, so Marlon Anderson plays first again. I also think Mrs. Randolph needs to have a talk with erik from the bx to find out what she can do differently to convince Willie to bat David Wright higher in the lineup.

Speaking of Wright, if you haven't done so already, go to the MLB.com All-Star Ballot and vote for David at 3B. You can vote up to 25 times per e-mail address, and I know some of you have several addresses you can vote from, so let's get David on the team.
