Randy Johnson is my dad.....

He's not. Some do call me the Big Unit though...

Anyways, four more days until the start of the season and a few questions remain unanswered for the Phightins and the Buccos.

The most intriguing question is the 5th starter spot. In Pittsburgh, the fight is between Phillies reject Brandon Duckworth and Victor Santos. In this epic lose-lose situation, go with youth in Santos ahead of the proven loser Duckworth. In Philadelphia, the 4 an 5 spots are up for grabs between three guys, Madson, Franklin and Floyd. Compared to Franklin, Madson and Floyd are younger, have had better springs, have never testing positive for steroids, and can throw the ball faster than Jamie Moyer.....

Speaking of Moyer, over in the Burgh Oliver Perez is rolling his 4-seamer up to the plate at a steady 88 mph. Even Josh Fogg thinks he's lost his juice.....

Will David Bell start the year on the DL? I sure as hell hope so....

When will Craig Wilson get traded and to/for who? Latest rumor is to the Braves for John Thomson. I don't like it. He's old. Buccos have plenty of young starters waiting for a chance (Sean Burnett). The lack of a "p" in his name bothers me. And JerOmy Burnitz will be hurt soon anyway, putting Wilson's mullet back in RF where it belongs.

September 30- funny you mentioned Jamie Moyer in the post before the season started, because he is now a Phillie.
