Peavy Da Man

Jake won last night against Clemens, although he may not have pitched better. Jake had to dig his way out of two bases loaded jams, but hey, he's only 24. Clemens made a few mistake pitches and bam.

But hey two, Clemens is 43, that is older then me, which is to say, older then dirt.

Watching the guy last night, I could not help thinking of him rolling into town Monday on a private jet, supplied by the Astros owner via contract, cruising to the park in a limo/SUV, yet he's just an old ballplayer. Strange irony there. Mega superstar-ole coon from Texas.

Of course, you know Clemens don't chill with the team on his off-days, but rather hops back on the Lear and gittyups out o town after each start. Three hours every five days, plus travel=millions. Nice work if you can get it.

Park against somebody tonight. I don't care, I just want them to take the series and start hitting better.

So, go Padres!

1. Apparently, Eaton's lil finger is all better now. Starts Friday. Probably be a lot o rust. But I'm happy to have him back.

2. Man, I like Olivo behind the plate. You can see it in his eyes, he just wants it. Hernandez who?

3. That's got to be Giles first HR in a long time. Even Klesko had a nice rope. Lets cross our fingers.

4. Could the Wood find himself in the pen? We shall see.

5. Nice to see a little ESPN love. To bad it has to be the Thriller in Manila to get their attention, but can you blame them?
