Chris Sampson's ERA is getting close to a run per inning, and he's giving up almost 2 walks/hits per inning... so is this the last start before he gets moved to the bullpen? Moehler had a good outing last night by going 5 full innings without giving up a run... but then again, it was just 1 good outing. Sampson has given up 5 runs in his last 2 outings and failed to make it into the 6th inning in either game. He needs to get his act together. He says he's been working on his mechanics and all of that jazz... well, it better produce some results tonight.After losing 4 straight games, Billingsley seems to have turned it around and has now won 2 in a row. In his last two games he's pitched 13 innings and only allowed 2 runs.

Another ridiculous start time of 9:10PM today... I can understand why last nights game started at 9:40 PM here... I understand that the traffic in LA is terrible on Friday nights and it's only logical for them that they have the game start at 7:40PM their time... but today is a Saturday! I don't understand that. It would be easy for them to start the game at say 5 or 6 PM... Oh well...

The Cubs and Cardinals have already won tonight, so there's no chance to gain any ground on 1st or 2nd place...
