7th inning and we seemed to have bounced back after last night. Would be nice to get some help in Colorado, but if we take care of our business things will be fine.

Lynn was excellent today. Man…Piscotty went 4 for 4. He’s a pure hitting-machine.
Jaime tomorrow. Hope he’s in good form.
Did you get a look at that Tomlinson kid? They say his nickname is “Clark Kent”….’cause of his glasses. Duh.
He’s got a .364 BA…can you believe it? A .389 in his last 7 at-bats. He doesn’t really look all that athletic. He’s 6′ 3″…but only 180lbs.
