Boxscore

I realize that Soriano was the closer before he went on the DL, but I don’t think it was a good move to throw him back into the roll so soon, especially a one-run game on the road. While I realize that I am posting this after he gave up the lead, I honestly was wondering that when I saw he was out there pitching. I don’t think he necessarily needs to “earn” the role back, but he should have a few more innings under his belt than the one he pitched in the 8-1 win over Milwaukee.

I am also wondering if the scouting reports are begining to make the rounds on Jurrjens. He didn’t pitch great against Arizona¬†on 5/26, and his control was horrible today. On a positve note though, I think we can safely say that Teixeira has finally warmed up. It couldn’t happen at a better time either, because teams are starting to pitch around Chipper more and more.

Finally, listen to me now, and believe me later, Jay Bruce will be the Rookie of the Year.
