Al lright! Everyone back on the pile! Wooo! Playoffs! Disregard that the series was at home and that we got to use both Felix Hernandez and Cliff Lee and that we won one of the games in part thanks to an umpire mistake. Playoffs!

In actual good news our starters went 7.2, 7.0, 8.0 and 8.0 innings this past four game series. That was a really nice gift they gave the bullpen with 13 consecutive games left to go in this stretch. All things considered, I'm calling that Felix's best start of the season and getting him back into 2009 form would help alleviate some of the pressures on the offense. Cliff Lee is in peak stride so having those two pitch back to back the way they just did gives us a lot of winnable games.

Too bad about Erik Bedard. He's still not even back to throwing bullpens yet so you can imagine the time frame that he still have to overcome. 

Fri Jun 04, 19:10: Ian Snell vs. Joe Saunders*

Sat Jun 05, 13:10: Doug Fister vs. Ervin Santana

Sun Jun 06, 13:10: Jason Vargas* vs. Joel Pineiro

Not that Doug Fister or Jason Vargas have been unimpressive this season, but this is certainly an uninspiring stretch of pitchers to run out there against a divisional foe that we badly need to reverse the latest trend against. Then again, neither are their pitchers. Joe Saunders again? Thanks, Anaheim! And hey, the return of Joel Pineiro.
