The Big Inning

Despite our Managers bunt happy, rally-killin' ways, we have been putting up some big innings lately. A six run job yesterday, 5 runs on Monday and the big 8 run inning on Sunday. If Beltre and Sexson actually start contributing (as they did last night), we might get an offense worth talking about!

Good to see JJ get run out there for the ninth. Truly, I don't care who gets the 3 run saves, they are not that valuable and would be a fine spot for Eddie if Hargrove was so inclined. I'm just glad that the one bad outing didn't automatically change how Hargrove thinks of his pecking order in the pen.

I know I keep harping on this, but if Hargrove is so concerned about the workload of the pen (and the broadcast guys made it sound like no one was available in the pen at all) he might consider using them for longer stints. Like the 2+ Green went last night. See how well that worked!

I'm at the game today, so live game report tomorrow!
