    There’s no reason to think that Maroth will be any better than Zach Miner or anyone else. I think his deal with the Devil, like Shelton’s, has expired.

    I wonder what kind of crap lineup Leyland wil send out there today. We shall see!

    I’m with Dan. Unless we can sign the ghost of Walter Johnson, I say we give up. Of course, Johnson was only 3-3 in the postseason. No way he could beat the Yankees with the lineup they have this year. Never mind.
