Ugh. Yeah, I know Peavy was injured and missed a month, but he has allowed seven runs in 22 innings since he came back, so it's clear that whatever ailed him isn't a problem at the moment. However, in his last four starts, Doug Davis has allowed seven runs in 25.2 innings, so this one could be a lot closer than you'd have thought at the start of the season. Though if an unknown like Baek can no-hit Arizona until the sixth inning, we might see a perfect game from Peavy tonight. After last night's disappointment, I'm expecting nothing.
It's Native American Appreciation Night at the park, and Gila River Casino are giving out blankets to the first 25,000 in attendance. Yes. In Arizona. In July. I have to think this is some kind of cunning plan to inflict retribution on us palefaces, for when we gave the native Americans blankets. I am therefore staying away, and will be giving anyone at the game a wide berth for a couple of weeks, just in case. :-) It's one of those awkward 5:10 pm starts, so I'm not sure how much I'll be around - it largely depends on our dinner plans.
