Even it up.

Not able to "watch" today's game while working. It's a cruel fact of playoff baseball. Thank goodness for the benign workplace world of GameCast. Gotta say it was like I was watching the damn game on TV...I could barely monitor Street's bottom half. I get nervous.
Sizing up my Coors field wardrobe for the weekend. Lots of layers topped off with some Gore-Tex...don't think my Rockies gloves are going to be "extreme" enough to handle the projected weather. Brrr.
That said, great equalizer today Rockies. Suddenly we got home field advantage. 2 at Coors, to control/win this series. I'm looking forward to it...frostbitten digits and all.

Street was sketchy, and Carlos didn't come up late,
but it ain't Holliday. How's them balls feeling?

I can't say enough of the importance of getting good barrel on the ball in a cold weather game. Mr. Howard, do you have anything to add?

"Of course, it's usually real cold when we start out the season in Philly. The thing is staying warm, keep your hands warm. Try to put the barrel of the bat on the ball. If you don't get it on the barrel, it really stings.

And how exactly do you keep your hands warm?

"Well the thing is, here in Philly, we like to stroke each other'


"Well yeah, you know, bop your bologna"
