Does Narron use a dart board to determine his lineup?

The lineup looks better than last nights. I still wonder if tonight we're going to see a 20 strikeout performance by Penny. I could happen. He has been dominant this season.
Have you heard any whispers about a west coast team seeking Edwin's service's? LAA was rumored by CBSsportsline.com. Just wondering if any one has been whispering?

Any word when the Majic man might be ready? Who will go down tomorrow?

Magic man isn't going to help this team either so it doesn't matter. Jerry will overuse him like Coffey and render him ineffective.
