That is the game kids, once again the dreaded ERROR has completely sent the defense into meltdown and was discouraging enough to not get the lumber going. It’s basic simple base-ball, catch the bloody thing.

John Danks had a good outing, 7 k’s in 7 and 1/3 solid inning. He is still not 100% after his surgery but he is getting there and it’s just going to take time.

We have more errors and given up more runs to this point then all of last season and there has to be a way to stop it.

Scheduled day off tomorrow, awaiting the Cleveland Indians starting on Friday for a double header with Hector Santiago in the office for the first of two games.

See you on the field
