McCovey Chronicles

I'm not the smartest guy in the world, but if Joe Martinez was actually born February 26, 2008, the Astros have a really good chance to jump all over the (very) young San Fran starter. Also, Brian Moehler really is thirty seven years older than his mound opponent, as opposed to all us just feeling like he's that much older than most teams' starting pitchers.
