  6. Gabe says:

    Burrell? Random hopes.

  7. Joe D. says:

    Garza, wishful thinking, but maybe he’ll have some flashbacks to last years post season… and it will translate to positive things on the field.

  8. Kelley says:

    Oops, I should’ve checked the lineup. I promise the game’s only in the 2nd inning because I tivo’d it. Is it too late for me to pick Longoria?

  9. Kelley says:

    Oh my gosh, I’m going crazy. I thought Zobrist wasn’t in the lineup but now I see he is. My pick is still Zobrist. Disregard my remark about my Longoria pick. I had knee surgery Mon., so I’ll blame it on the anesthesia that I can’t tell who’s in the game and who isn’t.
