Woody knew it was do or die time. He’s an old pro, and he somehow managed to only give up 6 hits – 4 singles, a double and a triple, 1 BB, and 3 ER over 6 IP, lowering his ERA to 10.70. Woody managed to get 13 GB outs – amazing considering the suckage of Loretta at second, Tejada at short and Wiggy at third. Certainly a mediocre showing, but unfortunately Chris Sampson is not having the great spring he did last year, which is making Cooper’s decision difficult to say the least.
Anyway, Woody will start on Friday at the Box, and if he doesn’t look sharp, he’ll be gone, 6 mill or not. Wandy, trying to recover from an oblique strain, is also scheduled to pitch a few innings.
I hear tell that the Dodgers wanted to trade for Mark Loretta and we said no. I wonder
1 – what they were offering
2 – what on EARTH they have against Andy LaRoche
3 – why on EARTH Wade didn’t agree to swap Loretta for LaRoche, seing as how for some odd reason, LA doesn’t like him…
But I am eagerly awaiting Opening Day on Saturday afternoon. Yes, I know Y’ALL don’t think it is Opening Day, but the kids do, so off we’ll go.
Hope all yall had a Happy Easter (or Happy Passover or Happy Sunday.) All I know is that kids eat ENTIRELY too much candy…
