I didn't see yesterday's game--all-afternoon work event--but it sounded in the immediate aftermath much more grim than it appeared when I looked closer. Lopez got the ball on the ground he needed; bobbles happen. Hansen made some good pitches he didn't get credit for; one or both of the batters he faced could have returned to the dugout if he made the same pitches again. Okajima's just not the same starting with runners on base. The results might have sucked, but it wasn't quite the meltdown I thought it was just looking at the numbers.
Realized in hunting for something that I'd edited more shots than I'd linked, so there's some new stuff on the March 3 and March 8 spring training pages, as well as a few shots from Pawtucket on April 19. I had the best intentions of making a lot of progress during the last road trip, but somehow that didn't happen. I may be in the same funk the team's in!
But an out-of-state buddy from my vacation home in the SG comment section will touch down like a Manny high-five later today, and I'm confident of some good times and some wins this weekend!
