Van Every Day!

Well, that was fun. Nice to see another prospect contribute, albeit a little randomly. I was not thrilled to see Baily and Van Every in the line up so soon. But I do understand that we got to get the boys some rest now and again. All in all, it was still a pretty good game to watch and of course it doesn't hurt that we won the rubber match. Lester's performance wasn't stellar, but he seemed to settled down after the 4th (5 of the 7 hits were in the first 2 innings). Another good sign was 4 more scoreless innings from the bullpen. Our guys might not be as dominate as before (seem to walk a lot more guys) but we're not giving up runs.

Tonight should be interesting: Beckett v. Garza in the Tropicana Dome. It's a 4 game set against Garza, Sonnanstine (v. Masterson), Niemann (v. Wake), and Shields (v. Penny). Naturally, I'd love to kick the Rays while they're down, but we just don't seem to match up against them like we used to. I'll be happy splitting the series.

Lugo's Revenge?

Last night, I couldn't help but think to myself the guys on WEEI are going to chew up Lugo tomorrow for dropping that play at second. They actually went pretty easy on him, but I think it is safe to say there is a small pit in RSN's stomach this morning ("This is our everyday SS?!")

In other news, how about Hunter Jones! I know it's only 4 IP, but 1 hit and no BBs against the mashing Orioles, Yankees and Indians.

That's more like it!

Nothing like a good dose of Orioles baseball to turn that frown upside down. It appears Grieves is still alive and well (still no word from the other GYSers).

Looking ahead, this week we have the Twins and Yankees. After the Yankees had to pull their Wang out early, I doubt they'll serve him up to the Sox on Friday. Still they have a pretty potent line up.

(Man this was a lame post), but I am committed to getting this blog back on track!

Slow start to the season

I am not talking about the Red Sox. I am talking about GYS chatter. Is it over? The guilded-age of blog-dome?

Post a comment if you're even checking the blog. I don't mind carrying some of the weight if you guys don't mind reading my crap.

Notables from the first week in 2009 baseball:

Jair Jurjens is 2-0!!!
J.D. Drew looks silly against lefties (oh wait that's old news)
Sabathia found his stride against the Royals (can you really say that?)
Blue Jays are cruising!
And finally, who the hell is Nick Green?!
