Tonight, I Wear My I-Dog Jersey (t-shirt)

We'll give the bullpen a little breather here and pay tribute to a certain catcher who has been struggling mightily at the plate. In light of the mini-meltdown Cookie had in the 7th (up 7-0, it's probably pretty easy to over relax) and the 'pen suffered in the 8th inning, I-Dog's two-run blast looks pretty nice in a 7-5 much-needed win today. Very nice to see Street lock down a 1-2-3 strike out the side 9th. That's what closers are supposed to do, from what I hear.

Watching a few moments of the replay of the game here tonight and it looks like there was a pretty good crowd on hand for a Wed afternoon. What, were they giving away Murton jersey t-shirts?

Shoulda been a sweep.

Indeed. 5 games back at the end of April? Could've been worse, should've been a little better.

Might have to fish that IDog jersey out of the hamper. Nice Grand Slam. Wouldve been another horrible loss after going up big early.

War the bullpen. Too bad DLR could deal with sudden run support.
