Big Day for X-Files

Big day for X-Files. I've been anxious to see him all offseason. As most everyone knows, this is a big year for Mulder. He's a FA and is looking to get back to his position before the last little funk he had in Oakland. While he had a great season for most pitchers last year, it was not up to par for him. It would do this heart some good to see him come out with a dominating performance of a very good Phillies line-up.

As for Rollins, I'm excited for him, as his current streak is very impressive. I find myself cheering for and against the person challenging the record. Some may not like me for it, but I find myself wanting the mystique of the old record to stay intact. I felt similar regarding MacG and Sosa (and later Bonds)when they were chasing Roger M. Hindsight being 20/20, I really wish they hadn't succeeded, for obvious reasons. But I have little reason (so far) to doubt Rollins' authenticity.

For the sake of my Redbirds, however, I hope he hits nothing but air.

No clue to be honest. I didn't mind it at first, cause the shirt IS funny. But when I saw he was just spamming, I didn't really like it.

I was wondering the same thing as cards4life.

Expect Rollins to get plenty of opportunities to get hits tonight and tomorrow.

It's on ESPN!

Yeah, I stoked. Will tape part of the game I will miss due to a ball game of my own. Call me silly but the only think I like doing more than watching baseball is playing it.

For a democrat, you're alright Daniel ;)
