    A single now and I believe this becomes a potential save opportunity.

    Yeah, and here comes Bill Bray. This one is far from over. I prefer Fisher here.

    These are monster leads. This game should be long over. Instead an 8 run lead is cut in half and the only out made was a fly ball out that was maybe five feet from being gone.

    I don't know why Bill Bray is still on this club -- there are far better options in the minors than a LHP that can't throw strikes consistently.

    That slider is why.

    He'll look great for an outing, and then the next two will feature nothing but him nibbling low and away and walking batters.

    Too many for a guy who may not have enough innings in him to get to the end of the year. Save him for next time.
