It's The Juan Uribe Show: Game 79 Thoughts

Sox Win! 6-2

-Juan had a great game today, to say the least. This hot streak of his is ridiculous. He carried the team today with his 2-run single, 1-run double, and his 2 run jack. He also threw in a nice play in the field on the last play of the game; not bad for a day's work.

-Garland wasn't spectacular, but he was effective. His problem today was mainly with his control, but he overcame that by throwing a lot of 2-seamers. He ended up giving 2 runs in 6 innings. I thought we were in for a long game after he gave up those runs in the first, but he hunkered down and didn't give up anything after that.

-Cotts, Garland, and Thornton pitched well coming out of the pen; collectively they only allowed three baserunners.

-Pods had a spectacularly awful day in the field today. He handed Pierre a double and triple. It makes the talk about acquiring Chone Figgons seem like a good idea.

-Pods had another CS today. He's regressed to his base stealing form from the beginning of the year.

-AJ got plunked, but didn't make a big deal about it. He just turned around and went 2-3 on the day.

-Big Ups of the Day to Garland for not letting the game get out of hand.

Oh, by the way, are the Tigers ever going to lose again? Or, for that matter, the Twins?? I'm so over interleague right now it's not even funny.

Juan U. is such an integral part of our success over the past year & a half, I love to watch him play when he's feeling it. He's got this mystique, I wonder how his teammates feel about him...
