Great to see Lohse get a standing O.

In honor of Yadi's homer last night...

Didn't get to go last night, but my sister just brought me on of the harmonica's and the #6 window sticker!

Oh....and I made sure they didn't use the thing during the 7th inning stretch last night :wink:

Having everybody play "Take me out to the ballgame" was a pretty cool idea IMO, but just nowhere near realistic. They provided sheet music in the harmonica box which was kind of funny. I don't think anybody knew how to play it.

Shelby Miller was awesome. A little inefficient, especially early, but 7IP/1H/0BB(or does HBP count?)/0R. Just really really good. As he develops, I think he'll learn to put hitters away more efficiently. I heard that he was trying to go for too many swings and misses when ahead which led to the fouled off pitches, but couldn't see that very well. After the game, he gave tons of praise to Yadi which is reassuring. Last year they had to put a "no shake-off" rule in place for him.

After a mediocre first start and a good second start, it would be nice to see Waino keep it up and string a few good starts together. I expect him to be very good this year, but I'll feel better about that after another couple of good starts.

Time for Boggs to move back to the 8th inning. I nominate Rosenthal.

Yeah, I agree on Boggs moving. A week ago, Rosenthal would have been my choice. He seems to have the best stuff in the pen, but in the games Boggs has sucked, Rosenthal has also sucked.
