The Marshmallow Horse

I just got home from Mittel Europa to find that Robertson is on the DL, BUT we're in first place and Boston is 2 - 4.

It's good to be back.

Dale Robertson, of course, was the star of the TV series "Iron Horse," which we know was really Lou Gehrig. But for some reason, the show was about a guy who owned a train and had a fancy private car, right up there with Jim West's. Our closer is obviously not quite the durable legend Lou was, missing games already only one week into the season. (And he's one of the young guys.)

Speaking of missing games, what's the over-under on the number of games Tex will actually play in this year? 30? 40?

Oh, sorry, that's CC's ERA...(rim shot). No, no, really sorry, that's Phelp's ERA...(double rim shot).
