Bourjos gets another hit, baby steps, and provides more excellent defense.

Torii had two hits on the night.

Kazmir pitched 4 shutout innings to start the game.

Wilson had a hit and did a decent job behind the plate except for making his first error of the season on a bad throw to 2B.

Callaspo extends his hitting streak to 13.

RAVE OF THE DAY: Hard to choose, not much to choose from. But I'll go with Bourjos for great defense, plus stretching a single into a double.


The Halos are still putrid with RISP. It's almost comical now, but at the same time it's pissing me off to no end!

Kendrick's defense is up and down like his hitting. When is he going to ever supply consistency? as he's now in his late 20s. Segura is still at least 2 years away, more likely 2.5 years away, but his seemingly overall game makes me yearn for him to be ready to play up here now.

Matsui is cooling off, just when he might have been inviting to another team as a lefty hitter down the stretch. Just the Halos luck, of which none is existant in 2010.

Kazmir can never get beyond 4 innings before imploding. That is not starting pitching material. Maybe he should be a reliever.

Shields again can't get beyond 1 inning before imploding himself.

Abreu is 4-35 with 13 Ks. I don't look forward to him earning that vesting option for 2012!!!!

This is PATHETIC being 0-5 against the O's. Showalter or no Showalter, that is EMBARRASSING!!!!

Maybe the Halos' lineup MIGHT come through with RISP in clutch spots by the 2011 regular season?????

RANT OF THE DAY: ONE stinking hit with RISP (that didn't even score a run) in the first 2 games against a MEDIOCRE O's pitching staff!!!!!!
Love to hear what you think!
