Game 105 Wrap / 106 Preview


*Buerhle conquered some demons and gained some confidence
*MacDougle is just erratic enough to make life uncomfortable for opposing hitters
*Riske saved our ass with great "shut the door" pitching. I wish we had held the win for Mark, but Riske deserves it too.
*with Thome and then Paulie out - we got clutch hitting / scoring from Mack, Cintron and Crede especially
* Sandy Alomar looks very old
* Sandy Alomar can still play
* If he's hurting, may not be a bad time to get Paulie some rest - mentally and physically


*Garcia historically does not perform well against the Royals - time to change that
*Dye will rebound from a rough one yesterday
*Keep the clutch run creating going now that we got it resurrected again
*Get Thorton right back in there
*Keep gaining confidence as a team for the tougher series ahead

Dye is my pick to click.

Jeeves is off to college or something -so if anyone would like to comment, vent, prognosticate -please feel free.

Dick: we must have been typing at the same time. LOL. I guess Jeeves will have to take care of Monday's (game 104) recap, cuz I didn't see the game.

BTW, did you see that comment under Jeeves "Be Back Friday" post?

My pick to click tonight is Ross Gload.

Yeah.....I actually was first writing mine at same time as yours and went to post and it didn't take and I lost it and had to retype everything - you were probably posting yours just before mine or somethinglike that and it knocked me out of the box. Well everyone gets a 2 for 1 now !....and yes I did see that note - interesting.
