Happy @#^%$! Mother's Day! 

What better way to celebrate the woman who raised you in this great world of ours that to treat her to a 16-2 Diamondbacks loss to the Pirates Sunday?

What? Flowers? A phone call? A card? Why not the D-Backs game? The bullpen was giving out gifts all afternoon...

Which is not to say Brad Halsey pitched much better -- his 4 walks exceeded his season total. But at least he kept the game close. So even though I figured that it would not be the D-Backs' day and turned the radio off after the bottom of the 7th inning, I hardly expected the 16-2 score I saw when I opened up the paper this morning.

Did Mark Grace pitch again?

Really, there's not much point rehashing the weekend. A 8-4 win Friday night -- that's good. A 3-2 loss Saturday night -- that's bad. And a 16-2 loss? Well, you know what that is.

And after watching a poor performance by Javier Lopez (1.0 IP, 2 ER) and a miserable performance by Kerry Ligtenburg (1.0 IP, 7 ER), Randy Choate has to be thinking, "Even I could've done better than that..."
