Picking The Right Golf Ball


Much better. The batters hit .333 with both Field and Johnson belting out homers. 7 runs scored, 6 RBIs, and stolen bases by Crisp (2) and Zimmerman. Not sure what's going on with Desmond, who is apparently part of some midfield rotation? I may promote Bartlett to the SS spot, bench Desmond, and play Torres in the UTIL slot. We'll see. Anyway, I have good hopes for the 2nd half of the season. I'm actually closing the gap in stolen bases, may be able to rise a few points in that category. RBIs is the curious one

On the pitching front, Lester didn't have his greatest day, allowing 3 earned runs and taking the loss. But he struck out 6 in 8 innings of work, and a 3.38 ERA, while bad for him, isn't far from the team average. Gallardo is to start again Thursday, Latos on Saturday. Let's do a re-run of the projections. I have 72 starts remaining, and with the Cubs as a reference, the regular season ends ~10/3. That's just under 11 weeks. Huh, I must've miscalculated when I first projected things. Anyway, 72 starts in 11 weeks is 6-7 starts...per week?? Hmm I was way off. I double- and triple-checked this and it seems to be what I want to go for.

So I've been rationing for almost a month, and combined with the All-Star break it's given me a bit of flexibility. Going forward, I will plan on starting Lester, Latos, and Gallardo religiously. Unfortunately, that sure won't fill the quota. I can see putting Floyd and Buccholz in the mix as well. Floyd isn't great, but he sure beats the Ugly Trio (Santana, Garza, and Talbot). As for Buccholz, he may not rack up the K's but he'll get the W's and post good ERA/WHIP numbers.

We'll see how it goes with all of these boys in the lineup.

Picking The Right Golf Ball

With regards to choosing which golf ball to play, you truly have a thousand options. They extend in costs anyplace from gentle to wild.

Wed 8/18

With Johnson and Helton still finishing up their games, my boys have hit .390 tonight. 7 runs scored, 7 RBIs, stolen bases by Bartlett and Crisp, and 3 homers. Crisp, Mauer, and Torres each belted one over the fence.

Pitching was not so good. Floyd got knocked out of the park, putting in a lousy performance for the 2nd straight game. Garza has been on a semi-roll lately, so I think a switch might be appropriate.
