What's The MATTer???

Matt, what is wrong? You absolutely S U C K. That's right, it's an easy word to spell. But it's a lot harder watching you pitch these days. Take, for instance, your last 2 starts. In 7 and 2/3 innings you've given up 14 runs, 16 hits, and your ERA is so high you would be required by law to declare it on your income tax forms. Would you believe 6.91. How about for the entire month of May? 2-2 with a 7.82 ERA. We can't take it anymore. We just can't. With Boomer sidelined for a couple weeks (?), the club cannot afford to have the kind of automatic losses your starts have led to. Whatever it is, FIX IT!!!
In other news, the club is trying to decide who will start in Boomer's place this Wednesday. Craig Hansen's name has been mentioned. He has been stretched in AAA to 4 innings, but we have to be careful with him. Plus his normal turn doesn't come up until Thursday. We will see him as part of the long-term solution this year. Before the All Star break. And don't be surprised if that comes as he being a part of the rotation. Especially if Rocket Roger decides to stay in Texas. We will find out soon. Real soon. And I cannot wait. Josh Beckett tonight, in a big game. A win would take all "sweep pressure" out of this series. And with the unknown status of our Wednesday starter, that would be such a good thing.
