Game 10 Tonight

Well, I'm off to play my last softball game of the regular season. Playoffs start next week, but my team captain thinks that we will have a bye that week. Wish the green lots of luck tonight.

Oh, and just because I haven't mentioned how angry I am with Keith "Foulkin' Up, Left and Right," doesn't mean that I am not downright steamed. I just keep telling myself: D-Lowe went through a stretch of garbage (understatement) last year. And I was might MIGHTY angry. He turned it around, though, and was his brilliant sinker-ball self when push came to shove. I think the real issue, though, is that Keith's role is to save. That's what he's getting the big bucks for. So, I hope this gets turned around soon. With luck, Foulke will put a bunch of saves on the board by October and we won't get nervous watching him exit the pen anymore. I don't know. I've got nothing.

Timlin looked good tonight but Wake saved the day. I think they will probably DL, Foulke to let him get his supposed physical and apparent mental problems fixed.

They sent him back to Boston before last night's game. Brad's thinking a Wagner (not Urbina) for Foulke trade if the Phils give up before July 31. I think it is going to be very close for the only playoff berth from the AL East if they don't get rid of him and get a new closer. Timlin ain't it, and all they are missing is a closer.

26-12! Way to go, green shirts and their RBI slugger who runs out every hit.

I only had 1 RBI, but thanks for the praise! Trading Foulke seems very drastic to me, but maybe I just haven't taken the whole scope of it in quite yet. I trust Theo. He doesn't sleep at night so that we all can. Black Betty (Timlin) will probably be closing for the time being, anyway.
