Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

10/18/2004: This scares me....


From Robb at Random Redbird Reasoning (talking about the probable pitching matchups in the next games of the NL Championship Series):

Game 6 - Roger Clemens on 3 days' rest, after pitching 7 innings and 116 pitches in Game 3. There is an outside chance, however, that the Astros might actually go with Munro in this start. Why? This is complete speculation on my part, but if the Astros were to win Game 5, Game 6 would not be a must win for them. Munro starting would allow them to follow with Clemens in Game 7 on regular rest, with Oswalt ready in the pen.
In other words, if the 'stros win Game 5 tonight they could decide to concede Game 6 and roll the dice with the Rocket pitching on full rest--and given Clemens's past performance against the Cards, that might not be a bad strategy.

Tonight looks like a must-win for The Good Guys.

"The Good Guys" = Houston, right?
