    The dog days of summer.

    From wiki:

    Dog Days were popularly believed to be an evil time "when the seas boiled, wine turned sour, dogs grew mad, and all creatures became languid, causing to man burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies" according to Brady’s Clavis Calendarium, 1813.

    Nah, 'twas just a collection of columns (Mars / Venus). I haven't read any of Barry's fiction - I understand he's working the same side of the street as Carl Hiaasen - pretty funny but also a bit weird.

    Ozzie, I checked the pitching match-ups and my prediction for this weekend is a split. Sad as this makes me, I don't see Smoltzie winning tonight, that's for sure.

    Smoltz pitched more than bad enough to lose. Perhaps he should consider going back to the bullpen?

    Man oh man oh man was that painful. I love John Smoltz. Always have, even while a Brave, but it appears he's lost it. Poor guy. I'd still like to give him a couple more chances to see if it comes back. But I'm not hopeful. Beckett goes tonight. That should be fun.

    Joba wasn't much better than Smoltzie, giving up, what? 7 walks in 5 innings. And that trend continued throughout the game, right down to Claggett walking a couple in the 9th inning and giving up a couple of meaningless runs, 12 walks total for the game plus a hit batsman? Sheesh! We just outhit you, which is nice for a change

    I sure hope Burnette pitches better tonight. It should be a good game!

    1 - 8, on the way to 10 - 8

    Maybe the Sox should've tried to get Pedro Martinez back - it turns out the Phillies might not need him any more...

    With all the Sox-Yankee talk here, I will mention that Smoltz was designated for assignment this afternoon. Meaning that he will be traded or cut in the next 10 days.
