- I missed a good chunk of the first game because I was hiding in my fallout shelter after Gary Matthews, Jeff Mathis and Reggie Willits all had RBIs in the same inning. I was convinced that judgment day was upon us.
- After seeing Justin Speier come up big with two huge strikeouts to bail out O'Sullivan in the sixth inning of Game 2, I almost went back into the fallout shelter but my wife talked me out of it.
- Bobby Abreu continues to step up at the right time. Not that anyone should get major props for owning Bruce Chen, but still, three doubles in one game certainly shows that while he doesn't have big homer numbers, he can still bust out enough power to get the job done as a middle of the order bat when necessary.
- O'Sullivan was still a little rough around the edges, but once again he got the job done. I still don't think he is the long-term answer as the fifth starter, but he is good enough for now (or not, I understand he just got demoted to Triple-A which, barring an injury, means he can't be recalled in time for what would've been his next turn through the rotation).
- D'oh! Brandon Wood is making all of us bloggers look bad. Three whiffs in five at-bats? C'mon, Brandon, I know you haven't played in a week but you have to do better than that if you want to crack the line-up. At this rate the only way you are going to get regular at-bats is in a Blue Jay uniform.
- I don't want to live in a world where Robb Quinlan can hit a homer in a doubleheader but Chone Figgins takes the collar in both games.
- I still can't figure out Ervin Santana. He fanned seven and didn't walk anyone but he still found a way to give up five runs to the worst offense in the American League. Even worse, he hit Jose Guillen with a pitch and only grazed his wrist. If you are going to hit that punk and not dot him in the head, at least make it hurt.
- Erick Aybar
