Tavarez Trouble, Again...And Again
I missed this whole game. But I heard Julia Tavarez was up to his old tricks. The team had lost the last 4 times he has shown his ugly face on the mound. In fact, the team record in games he has taken the hill is a nasty 8-13. Tito didn't want to use Delcarmen and Hansen. I can see the logic, but it's too bad we don't have another option other than Rudy and/or Julia. But I've put this game in the files and already turned the page. 2 1/2 up on the Yankees with hometown hero Jon Lester pitching today. The butterflies must be flying for him.
The reason I missed the game was because I was playing ball. I had a good day, going 3 for 4 with 2 doubles and a stolen base. We won 8-2. A great way to spend an afternoon. And speaking of afternoons, that's what we have coming up today. Day ball. And no more 5th starter worries for 10 days. And that's good.
