Haeger and having fun !

Looking forward to tonight's game and Charlie Haeger's debut with his knuckleball. I think Hawk and DJ will have alot of fun with this game and if we can score 9 again for our side - this kid will pull out his first big league win. This is almost a no lose situation for us - barring Jose is more hurt than they are saying - as we get to see this kid and what he can do at this level. If he is successful here, we have another weapon / trade bait in our arsenal. Plus Jose gets a breather and guys like Garcia and Garland get incentive to "step it up" and pick up the slack. Garcia did just that last night and I look for Garland and even Buerhle to more effectively deal their next times out. Sounds like Buerhle was "overthrowing" a bit per Coop and I hope Coop and Mark have it figured out now.

If Haeger fails - oh well, at least we then know his story and it will only be 2 starts at best and with a 3 1/2 game lead, we will survive it.

So bring the boy on and let's watch that ball dance !

I'm excited to see Haeger pitch. Other than Wakefield I've never watched a knuckleballer in action, and this time I"ll actually be cheering for him.

If he sticks with us, he'll be able to carry on the tradition of Wilbur Wood who has a nasty knuckler for us back in the day.
