BOD: Boyfriend of the Day May 18, 2007

Today was another difficult game to pick. Had Sweeney been left in for a little longer, I might have gone with him. Unfortunately, Bell decided teasing Berroa for a while would be good. Anyways, here's to our first three game streak of the year!

Our boyfriend tonight has to go to Vlademil.

Hitting a game winning homerun in the 8th with 2 on and 1 out will get you a boyfriend. Just remember that, Vladdy.

Our smitten kitten tonight is going to Jorge De La Rosa.

Quality start, 6 and 2/3 innings, 6 hits, 2 runs, and 2 strikeouts. Woot.

Also: Corpas, we have your number. 5 hits, 1 walk and we got 4 runs out of that. In 1/3 of an inning. And you know what? That makes you our Most Valuable Opponent.

Oh, and to those of you who are counting, we are 4 games behind the Twins, 3.5 games behind the Yankees, 2 games behind the Cardinals, 1.5 games behind the Rockies, .5 game behind the Reds, and .5 behind the Rangers. And we are officially .5 game ahead of the Nats. In the words of everyone's favorite hymn, Glory Glory Hallelujah!
