With the outcome basically already determined, I figured I'd start it now to try to keep the thoughts condensed.
-Arroyo is hurt. He's been terrible the last 3 starts coming off the San Diego game when he threw 126 pitches. His arm is tired, and with an offday on Monday, skipping his spot in the rotation one time around mot not be a bad idea.
-Mike Stanton needs to be DFA. Even though his ERA went down tonight with the 1 out he got, he allowed 2 inherited runners to score and gave up 2 hits. It seems like he keeps coming into games with men on base, letting them score, and then getting out of the inning. His ERA is going down, but he's pitching terribley.
-Edwin is 4-4. He's looked like a completely different player since coming from Louisville. Even with his uber slow start, his average is up to .250 and his OPS is slowly on the rise. In 63 ABs in May, he's a .286 hitter with an .842 OPS.
-For a guy known not to strike out alot, Norris Hopper strikes out alot.
Even with the loss, we took 2 of 3 on the road. You could do alot worse. Onto Colorado.
