By The Way

  • Remember that game against Texas where Felix missed a bunch of bats but still got torched? Jarrod Washburn today: 13 swinging strikes, 2 foul tips, eight line drives on 19 balls in play. Perhaps this is their M.O.

  • There's no reason why Griffey should've been up there against CJ Wilson with men on the corners and one out in the 10th. Don Wakamatsu does a lot of things I like, but he needs to learn to pinch-hit for people during a game. Just because he has limited options doesn't mean there aren't still opportunities for him to make a difference by going to the bench, and I feel like he wasted a big one.

  • Elvis Andrus is incredible. I don't care if he's a Ranger. I love him. You can get mad at a pitcher for celebrating after a strikeout, and you can get mad at a hitter for showboating after a home run, but I don't think you can ever get mad at a defender for making a magnificent play. If Andrus turns into the guy we thought Yuni was going to be, then that'll make him one of the more underrated assets in baseball.

  • All of a sudden, Sean White isn't throwing 94 anymore. He was, however, flashing a pretty good changeup tonight, so I won't get too worried. I will, however, be wary.
