    And on ten pitches. Nice to see him not offer up another tribute to Electrocardiogram Eddie.

    You can't always judge just by audio - but even on the radio he sounded nasty.

    I kind of liked the starting lineup today before the game, I liked the late inning substitutions, and I loved the end result.

    I heard it on the radio too. You are absolutely right.

    Perk was all business and it came through in Provus's call.

    I'd let Parmelee play in the OF. Seems to me that you could accomplish his when someone comes off the DL.

    I'm not sure this CF's bat will play in right field.

    And even with the praise, it seems like a 10-pitch 3-strikeout deserves another shoutout. If we did offer to trade him, wonder what another team would give to have him.

    JJ HARDY

    Grrr. Reaching for blood pressure meds.
    I know, there were a couple of forgettable alternatives in between there, too, and one unforgettable total bust from Japan. But JJ Hardy is my answer and I'm sticking to it.
