    Pete on not walking DeRosa: "I don’t like to load the bases if I don’t have to. That puts more pressure on the pitches. If there’s an open base, they can pitch like there’s two strikes and you have an option. IF he gets that guy, I have an option on the next guy.

    "Any time you walk the bases loaded, it makes it very difficult to for that pitcher to make perfect pitches, which he has to. If you’ve got a man on third with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth inning of a tie ballgame, you’re in trouble. You have to figure out the best way you can to win the game. Unfortunately that ball ticked off of Weathers’ glove. If he catches it or doesn’t hit his glove, we’ve got a chance."

    Weathers on the same subject: "Right-handed hitter, the competitor in me wanted to go after Daryl Ward, you can get a foul ball or strike out. With DeRosa we did what we wanted, I just have to make the play. Or at least get my glove out of the way because it was right to Brandon."

    Weathers: "It was a terrible outing. I just felt like from the first pitch on, I struggled and I couldn’t throw the ball where I wanted. I felt rusty. I just didn’t get it done, that’s the bottom line."

    Poor Bronson... Trent mentioned that he was a victim of a 5th blown save - but he should have won 7 games.

    4/9 - 7 innings of 2 run baseball - Saarloos takes the loss
    4/19 - blown save
    4/25 - 7 innings of 1 run baseball - Saarloss again takes the loss
    6/29 - blown save
    7/27 - blown save
    8/28 - blown save
    9/17 - blown save

    Baseball is a funny game, sometimes you just get beat.
