So, how y'all doin'?


Let's see, what's on the agenda for today....watching baseball on tv. How 'bout you?


Baltimore, MD. -- Call the fifth inning what you will -- a Maalox moment for Rays manager Joe Maddon or a defining moment for Matt Moore. One thing was certain, you could almost hear the ker-thump, ker-thump of the rookie southpaw's heart when Albert Pujols stepped to the plate with one out and the bases loaded.

Moore had a three-run lead at the time and every one of the 41,232 Angels fans watching wanted to see the veteran slugger spoil Moore's outing with one swing of his mighty bat.

He did not, and the Rays came away with a 3-0 win over the Angels at Angel Stadium.

San Francisco, CA.--
The National League West standings suggest that the Giants and Dodgers will compete fiercely for the division title through the rest of the season.

The pair of games these teams have played this weekend indicate otherwise.

The Giants and their fans won't want to admit it, but the Dodgers look like the decidedly superior club, at least right now. This impression was underscored Saturday by Los Angeles' 10-0 victory, which trimmed San Francisco's West lead to one game over the Dodgers.
