    Hmmm. no Span. Could he be packing his bags for a trip to DC or Cincy? Bohlinger says it just a day off.

    Was that a double given up by Blackburn on an 0-2 pitch?

    Have I mentioned my position on giving up solid contact on 0-2 pitches?

    It was more of a single, but your primary point remains.

    I'm "watching" on gamecast.

    Interesting side note: According to gamecast, there have been a total of 3 pitches outside the strike zone through one inning.

    Lots of pitches called a ball, but only 3 outside the strike zone.

    I'm guessing gamecast's pitch location depiction isn't entirely, uh, accurate.

    Given that this is Blackburn pitching, I'm just glad it stayed in the ballpark.

    Nice homer by Mastro. It would be great to build a lead here.

    It was a ball that Revere dove for and had it hit the heel of his glove. If Span had been out there he doesn't even have a chance to make a play on the ball and it ends up a generic single.

    To give him credit, Blackburn is starting off nicely. He's throwing strikes, he's keeping the ball down in the zone, and while he's given up 3 hits, they haven't been hit that hard (a shallow fly into center, a broken-bat bloop, and a shallow single).

    You don't see that much - an outfielder trying to throw a runner out at first.

    I remember, at the end of Harmon's career, that sometimes worked - he singled to right field but couldn't get down the baseline in time to beat the throw.

    How dare you speak of Harmon that way. Blasphemy.

    Hey, I loved watching him hit the bombs, but let's be honest - at the end he did get a bit big. I remember one time he came to the plate and the organist played "Roll out the barrel."

    This is the critical inning - pitch count rising, heart of the order.
