I'm much more excited to watch game 2 with Lillibridge, Flowers and Viciedo in the lineup.

I'm hoping to see some good from both pitchers today.

True, a nice end to the season for Stewart would go a far way towards getting him a rotation spot for next year. He can't keep going out and giving up 6 or 7 runs like he has been.

Dayan Viciedo singles.

I assume this means that the sun came up today and Mark Prior felt a pop in his elbow.

Ditto Philip. Responding well to the 2 weeks off would be excellent.

The funny thing is Viciedo isn't even swinging the bat that well, IMO. Has a "magic wand" going, which is great to see cause when he starts driving the ball, his power numbers will go up quickly.

He's actually a lot like Flowers in that when he makes contact with the ball, the ball goes a long way. The difference between the 2 is that Flowers might K 175 times, while Viciedo will K 85 times at a normal pace.

Dunn overpowered in that whole AB by 90 mph fastball. He's so fantastic.

At least Dunn competed in that AB . . .

Call me crazy, but I really like De Aza. I think he's an upgrade in 2012 leading off instead of Pierre.

De Aza now at the 75% clip on steals.

I've liked him since we picked him up.

He's still got some issues to work out...he's being more aggressive than he was in the minors so he's not walking as much right now, but compared to Pierre he's going to slug more, obviously.

I totally agree...a De Aza/Lillibridge platoon in LF would be nice to see. If Hahn is our GM, I guarantee De Aza starts.

So, did anyone listen to Rongey after the game last night? I'm interested in knowing how laughable it was.
