Game Day: Pain In The Asp Edition

Having been driven out of the swamp, the Snakes get their chance at revenge.

Livan versus Brandon Webb.

Webb's a solid pitcher who's been relatively anonymous, pitching in the tall shadow of Randy Johnson and with depressed win totals because of a crappy team. He was even overshadowed in his rookie year by the inferior Dontrelle Willis.

Expect a lot of groundballs. He's an extreme groundballer. (75% last year!)

But, he'll also give up some walks. (over 5 a game last year!)

Picture Zach Day, but one who doesn't throw as tentatively.

Watching the game? Listening on the radio. Come rant with us!


  • Joe Horgan update ... still not so good. Last night against Albuquerque, he has this interesting line.
    1IP 3H 3R 3ER 3BB 3K 1HR

    He strikes out the side but allows 6 baserunners.
