A Very Necessary Sweep

After that 3-game losing streak at the hands of the 'Stros, this weekend sweep of the Jays certainly hit the spot. A 4-3 homestand is nothing to get overly excited about, but it sounds way better than the 3-4 or 2-5 homestand that was taking shape. Mad props to the pitching staff. When Hambone and Franky pitch this way, and Ubaldo does his thing every 5th day, I like our chances of shaking the hovering around .500 doldrums, especially if the offense ever rises up to its potential. Sounds like DLR may be getting close to coming back, which would only help secure what has been a fairly strong rotation. Still, games like today make you wonder why the offense has been so weak up to now. Good to see Taaawwwwddd swing a hot bat the last couple of games. Once he gets that average back up to something respectable, I might actually follow through on my illustrated Helton shirt threat.

Let's see some continued inter-leauge play dominance in the Twin Cities this week....

The sweep was a bit of a shocker I must say. Pitching really did well to only allow one jack to the MLB leader in that category.

And yes, only now is Todd looking worthy of our effort to make the first Helton themed BSB t-shirt. I've had the screen frame materials sitting in my garage waiting for him to wake up from his sub par season.
