He did me too until we called up Schwarber.

I did tell you all though.

Zach Godley, with 6 shutout innings against Nats, and Welly Castillo homers again.

1.50 ERA for Godley and .538 slugging for Castillo.

Oh, forget it already.

Nice scouting job by the D'Backs on Godley.  I figured he was a little bit of a longshot to ever make the majors when we traded him.  Less than a year later, he's pitching effectively in a major league rotation.

Let him throw a little more than 18 innings before we declare it a bad trade. He had a 5+ ERA in AA this year.

Oh, the Montero trade was a good one regardless. He's been a good player for us.

It's looking like Godley might have a chance to be a useful pitcher for them, though, which good for them if it happens.

Arodys Vizcaino just gave up a hit that scored the go ahead run for the Giants.

The Braves used 7 pitcher so far.  Aardsma, McKirahan, Brigham and Vizcaino all used to pitch for the Cubs.

Giants LOSE!  Walk off homer for Adonis Garcia, whoever that is.

Worst of all, fan in first row muffs walk-off homer and ball falls downstairs out of reach. Muff a walk-off. Ouch.

In 1964 or 1965, i'm sitting first row at Dodger Stadium left-field pavillion/bleachers with my friend Mike. We were 13 or 14.

Hank Aaron hits long flyball coming right at me and Mike. It's a homer!--clangs right off Mike's hands and falls down out of reach, down the stairs to lower concession area. We both knew it would haunt him rest of his life. "Hank Aaron, Hank Aaron!" He said. Think of that every time see a fan muff a big homer.

Speaking of Hank Aaron, historic home run tonight!

Mike Hessman with homer #434---now the all-time career minor league home run king.

Has 2,347 Ks too.

Congrats to Mike.

Amazing career. Check it out.

2006 definitely looked like a fun little season for him.  Batted .165 with 24 homers in 101 games.  That's Mark McGwire post-steroids-esque right there.

No, would never have you on ignore. Are you kidding?

Thought I would add some detail.
