Good to Know

Some factoids you may or may not find useful in the upcoming season, in the order they occur to me:

(The second is from memory, the first and third are from Pete Abraham's blog, posts and comments.)

Melancon is pronounced more like Meh-lance-son than Mel-an-kon.

In 1998, we started 0-2
--Last year, we won on Opening Day (with Carl Pavano on the mound...)
---Last year, our second half win percentage, though only good enough to gain us the Wild Card, was better than the second half win percentage in 1998. Imagine if we hadn't been injured up the wazoo in April and May...

McCutcheon once pitched against Joba in a college game. He won.
