    Wait! Is that a break in the clouds? A ray of light shines down, with the promise of better times to come.

    Suddenly the world feels a little better.

    I've said before that I'm not ready to anoint Glen Perkins the closer role, but since his last blown save he's run a nice sequence of 16 games with a 2.16 ERA; he's given up runs but not in close games where it cost anything. Closing out a one-run game against a top team today is a nice accomplishment. I'm very hopeful my earlier view that 2011 was a career year for him turns out wrong by several seasons' worth.

    Did you get that from the Department of Redundancy Department?

    Probably won't see this since the game thread is archived already, but ESPN says 448 ft.

    I didn't see any of the game. I did listen to portions while on the road. I have been impressed by Fien. He just about has to regress to the mean a bit, but I think he has just about won himself a bullpen spot next spring. Not as certain about De Vries, IMHO his performance has earned himself a major league contract and a chance to compete for a spot in '13.

    My list for September callups: Carson and Dozier return. Slama and Vasquez get a look (one open spot + a Gray DFA), Arcia gets rewarded for his awesome season with a chance to impress. I suppose Walters will be brought back and Capps, too, if he can throw the ball straight and over 90 mph.

    If you like fastballs with no movement, they should bring back Willie Banks.
