    144: I like games and don’t want to wait a year before they come out on PC for them to come out on Mac. If they ever do.

    Let the religious wars begin (please note…I didn’t start this).

    Oakland fans have no toofs.

    watching the tv repeat of the game, Blowers sounds pretty prescient when he announced early on that it was going to be an adventure for the outfielders today; good Felix quote:

    The wind gusts of up to 26 mph were a challenge, and Hernandez said his breaking pitches took on a life of their own. McLaren compared the wind to the old days at Candlestick Park across San Francisco Bay.

    “Oh, man, I don’t like that,” Hernandez said. “The wind was killing me today. That was tough. They gave me a five-run lead and I was just trying to hang in there. If I never see this wind again it would be good for me.”

    So Felix effectively was a knuckleball pitcher for the day. Just not an effective knuckleball pitcher.

    It would be kind of cool if the wind was strong but steady. I bet with a bit of practice a pitcher could break off some wicked sliders.

    When did the Ms trade for Andrew Jones and why was he playing leftfield?
