Good evening, fellow baseball fanatics.

It's a great day to love sports. We had some fantastic football earlier today—including a win from my beloved Bengals—along with an almost historic comeback for the Yankees, and a battle in Milwaukee between the Brewers and Diamondbacks.

Tonight we're going to be following along live as Chris Carpenter and Cliff Lee square off in an epic pitching matchup. Both pitchers are among the top 5-10 in the National League, and I fully expect this to be a low scoring, quick paced, pitcher's duel.

Here's what I need from you:  

PARTICIPATE!  (Note that I boldfaced, underlined and italicized that word.)

I don't want to talk to myself all night, so leave comments below and I'll answer in them the blog.
