Poo Tui. He was sent back down to AAA in exchange for Socolovich. I thought I heard one of the TV guys say that Tui really only has 2 good pitches. Perhaps, that’s the problem?
Tonite, no Hazelbaker, Wong or GGarcia in the starting line-up.
I’m wondering if they might put Waino on day-to-day with some sort of soreness or whatever. Or they could possibly put him on the 15-day DL, retroactive 10 or less days. Gotta’ blame his issues on something, no?

Sounds right.

I really love seeing our young guys get it done.
Question, Are they enough to over take the Cubs and their youth next year?

I’ll answer my question…………….not yet.
Garcia pitching today. If its anything like his last start we’re in trouble.

86 wins becoming more and more a reality.

Went to the game last nite. A policeman gave me two(2) extra 2016 Hall of Fame Repica giveaways. So I have one for each of you, if you’d like?
And yep, we might be in trouble today with Garcia pitching.
MM should’ve left Reyes in to pitch last nite. Guess he thought Duke could get out of the jam. Wrong.
