Dempster wants no part of Espinoza, apparently.

ESPN gamecast is working, so I'll stay there for this one.

FYI...CBS Sports Gamecast is the best. It features sound effects for strikeouts, runs and HR's. You can walk away from the PC and still know when something happens. ;)


At work the last thing I want is sound effects.

Ball 2 to Zimmerman looked like a good pitch.

Dempster's had 4-5 pitches called balls where pitch f/x disagreed.

Pat and Keith are saying the zone is small and that Zimmerman should have been called on on strikes already.

Meh. He's not getting the borderline pitches, so they aren't wrong, but it's been consistent today.

Ball 4 was a good pitch too. Zone is really tight right now, apparently.

Still can baaaareeeely tolerate Dempster's walks. Guys a good pitcher but man does it get tedious during his starts.

Adam LaRoche will have none of this "tight zone" business.
