It's The Juan Uribe Show: Game 79 Thoughts
-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.
