Hello all, I live in St. Joe, MO, am new to this site and am looking forward to the day the Boys in Blue can actually compete as a professional baseball club (I was thinking 2008 but pushed it to 2009 after this start).
I can't stop wondering why Billy Butler was called up but not in the lineup everyday. We all knew his defense sucks but it's not getting worked on the bench.
And I can't believe that Gil could be the All-Star game starter if he continues pitching like he has all season. Watching him bare down in tough situations and leaving runners stranded is something I'm not used to! Let's hope he keeps it up and gets his pitch count down a little so he can go 8 innings or even get some complete games down the road.
