We’re 2-0 and El Duque proved me wrong for one start, we’ll see if he can do that 30 more times this year. If so, we’ll be in great shape. Schoenweiss wasn’t impressive in his 2/3 of an inning. I hope he can start earning his 3 year contract. Who had the most hits tonight? Duque, of course, he was 2 for 3 with 2 RBI’s and a nice double down the line. Maybe we’ll see him pinch hitting at some point this season.
The guys in the booth seemed to be impressed with Kip Wells, but I just don’t see it. He doesn’t have great velocity, and his breaking balls don’t have that much movement. He’s only got a one year contract so he needs to pitch better than he did tonight if he wants a multi-year deal.
Alou and Green were 0-8 with 11 LOB combined. How soon can we start calling for Milledge to play right field? Soon!
4-1 final score.
