Something that should also be on that list is "face the Astros bullpen." They've been horrible.....is that two games in a row where the bullpen guy for the 'stros gave up a homer on the first pitch? If I were Garner my starter would throw 185 pitches before I went to the pen. It was really hot at Miller Park last night, BTW.
Interesting that there were 4 walks on the list.
Interesting that Mench had another hit w RISP, but the run was held up since there were 0 outs. It was an 0-2 pitch......but again I hate him and I especially hate the way he didn't walk on Sunday but had a single, double, SB, and 2 outfield assists. He's "killing" this team and Ken Tremendous says so.....
The key to having a big inning is having a lot of men on base, by hook or by crook, or walk for that matter. Kevin Mench got lucky because Carlos Lee isn't fast, doesn't hustle, and didn't get a good jump on the ball. And I hate him too...one of two players in the starting lineup not to walk last night. Maybe he'll have a good game or two so we can actually get something for him when we trade him.-Krey
