    i dont know about you guys, but i sure feel inspired

  2. Tom O. says:

    Neither Britton or Edwar pitched tonight. Call-up tomorrow? Please?

  3. dan says:

    its possible, but edwar did pitch 2 long innings innings yesterday, throwing 42 pitches

  4. Luddy Bazcej says:

    i hope we’ve seen the last of brower and villone.

    karstens needs to get it together in AAA.

    with such an abundance of arms id like to see some moves made.

  5. The Scout says:

    Rather than rush Kennedy, White would be my choice for the next spot start, should need arise. Karstens needs to go back to Scranton to get his act together. Brower has used up his chances and shown NOTHING, so I’m with the others who say the time has come to see what Edwar and Brittan can do. Ohlendorf may be doing better than Brower, but that’s not saying much, is it? Ohlendorf needs to remain where he is.

    Meanwhile, the position player prospects didn’t exactly set the world on fire, did they? Looks like gardner and A-jax have come back to earth.

  6. Jake T says:

    Is there any way Ohlendorf could find himself back in AA. After our initial excitement over his first few relief appearances, he seems to have hit a bump in the road

  7. Yatt says:

    Scout – agree with you on White. He seems to be forgotten. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have done much worse than Karstens last night. I hope they remember his name the next time they need a spot starter and allow IPK to refine his game and lower the BBs in AAA.
