The Syringe

The kerfuffle over the syringe thrown onto the field is beyond stupid. The comparisons I've heard to throwing batteries (I'm talking to you, Mighty XX talk show hosts!) are incredibly off base. Throwing something onto the field of play is wrong and is grounds for dismissal. That's a given. That said, throwing a plastic syringe with no needle is far closer to when some idiot Dodger fan blows up a beach ball and it ends up on the field than hurling batteries intending to cause bodily harm.

Moron who threw syringe ≠ to Phillies fans

Moron who threw syringe = to Dodger fans

Yes, that's still bad, but seriously this has been way overblown. We should be talking about how dominant Peavy was or how ugly Dave Roberts's fielding in center is not that some dork threw a piece of plastic within ten feet of Bonds.

"... Dave Roberts' fielding ..." ... I think is the correct spelling/punctuation :-)

Any word on rotation after rainout? Still go with Estes?

With singular words ending in s there is no set unbreakable rule.

Also, Padres.com still has Estes listed as the starter.

Richard, you are correct, but I prefer the apostrophe w/o the the additional "s."

I'll check with gwynntown, to see if he wants us to edit that.

Kerfluffle. That is a word that really should be used more often.
