Usually when a pitcher gives up five runs in the first two innings he loses. It has not been the consistent make-up of Oliver Perez’s career that he rebounds after he is hit hard. This was a good sign.
I know he drove in four runs, but I don’t like Marlon Anderson in center field over Lastings Milledge on a full-time basis. After the game Willie Randolph said he played a hunch and wasn’t unhappy with Milledge’s play.
Guillermo Mota rebounded after blowing Tom Glavine’s game the night before. That’s a must for a reliever.
That’s on my mind as I wrap up and head to the hotel. Tell me what’s on yours.
