A.J. Burnett (3-4, 3.19) Oliver Perez (3-4, 7.04)
In case you're like me, and you've been wondering if it's A.J. or AJ Burnett, I looked it up. It's A.J. - as in short for Allen James. And no, you can't just assume that someone with two letters for a first name is just abbreviating his/her first and middle name. Remember AC Green, the former basketball star? He wasn't A.C. Green. His given name is AC - read to the end of his bio, in the "Personal" section for confirmation.
In other news, I had a nice, long piece on Al Leiter that has been lost in cyber space. It seems that the Internet has attempted to get even with me for trying to get fancy with tables. I have learned my lesson and will respect the powers of the mighty Internet from now on.
For ichthyomancy, my fish tells me to take Castillo (or Easley - or whoever gets rolled out there at second base tonight). Attendance is a little cloudier, but I think it will be somewhere near 11,322.
Double B - Burnett
