It's fun to watch rookies come up and pitch. It's especially fun to watch rookies come up and pitch well. Chase Whitley made his major league debut and pitched great for his first time. He even got a hit. Whitley has most definitely earned himself another start. Meanwhile, Dellin Betances is becoming unfair.

Aaron Tres was in a beer & nacho mood, so he left the other Aarons behind to do the math. Uno and Dos were not having any of that, so they followed him. A good time was had by all. However, the responsible Aardvarks made sure the math was done before they left, and the numbers show that long time listener is our victor. He scored 3,000 points, and if he can get back to back wins, he earns himself a free personal Wright beaning. So look out.

What is your favorite classical composition?
Which meat would be harder for you to give up completely; beef or pork?
Living space: Which would you prefer? A house or a big apartment?
Personality wise: what do you believe is your most defining trait?
David Phelps will take the hill tonight against the Pirates. The Bucs have not been doing so hot lately, so at this point it would be ideal if the Yankees could take the series. Andrew McCutchen is going to be playing in our center field, so I'm personally excited by that. Excited as I may be, he is the enemy tonight. Defeat him.
That's if the weather holds up. Chances for rain tonight are extremely high.
