Soooooooo Impressed with how this team responded against that absolutely devastating loss on Tuesday. While you can put give a good amount of credit to the offense (a good amount of 2 out singles and clutch hits) the pitching was absolutely spectacular this series, highlighted by a CG Shutout by the 90 year old Cuban, Jose Contreras.
As much as I loved Jose’s performance today, the one that impressed me the most was Mr. John Danks, who continues impress with his fearless composure on the mound and the way he just attacks hitters.
Danks was in control pretty much the whole game pitching effectively and establishing the corners and putting on a clinic on how to jam hitters. Just so happy that we have this kid and that he got his 1st Major League W
The offense is starting to wake up, but still it would be nice to have Thome in the line up (he’s due back Tuesday hopefully), but most of them have been doing a good job doing the jobs that they’re asked to do. The only one thats really scuffling is JD, who continues to not see the ball well at all.
Alright, time to get ready for KC and hopefully sweep them or 2 outta 3 at least.
- Keep A&F! (Ryan Sweeney)
- Toby is due back at the end of May, early June.
- Gio bounced back from a disastrous outing in his last start K’ing 7 over 5 SO innings.
- Great catch by Hunter last night, the best I’ve seen so far this year.
Till Next Time.
