I just spent 3 hours writing a post that vanished into cyberspace and I just don’t feel like doing it again so I will summarize it right quick:
- Jackie Robinson ROOLZ
- Mark Loretta is without question the poorest excuse I have EVER seen for a shortstop and he cost Sampson 3 runs tonight (go watch the 4th inning if you disbelieve me)
Sampson pitched absolutely terrible. Very few balls broke and he left em over way too much of the plate. He almost tripled his ERA – from 1.5 to 4.26. Yeccccch.
Lance Berkman FINALLY hit a baseball a LONGGG way over the fence. I hope this means he is breaking out of his 3 week slump.
Biggio hit his 51st career leadoff homer. He now has 284 career homers and 2956 hits.
So Purpura, please, the playing time you promised Loretta? Don’t ruin your pitchers by putting him at short again, hunh? Just platoon Biggio on the road. Yes, I DO mean Purpura – I would bet this wasn’t Garner’s decision.
