Random thoughts before a big Saturday night in S.F.

Exciting guy that I am, I’ll probably grab a quick dinner at a greasy spoon, then go back to my room and find something really, really good to watch on TV. Anyway, in four career starts at Pac Bell/SBC/AT&T Park, Derek Lowe now has a 1.50 ERA. Speaking of Pac Bell/SBC/AT&T, the Dodgers have now won seven consecutive games here and are 9-2 here since the start of last season. … The Sippy Cups played a rendition of the national anthem that was almost unrecognizable. Not sure how the people out in the stands felt about it (didn’t hear much booing or cheering), but suffice to say, it wasn’t a hit in the press box. … Jeff Kent has hit safely in all five games this season. … Manager Grady Little admitted before the game that this team really, really misses Rafael Furcal, not only at shortstop but also at the top of the batting order. Little also conceded that Furcal’s absence might be putting undue pressure on Juan Pierre in the leadoff spot. Pierre is hitting .143 (3 for 21). … That’s all I have for today. Happy Easter, everyone.
