Seriously, there's only so much you can write when you've got a splitting headache. It was bad enough already, but in retrospect, I probably shouldn't have made so much noise when Sexson's ball cleared the fence. Let me tell you, that's a mistake you don't make twice.

^-all Santiago did at the plate was drop down a sac bunt, but he made an error on a ball in the ninth that should've been a game-ending double play. But hey, he can pick it up and throw it with the best of them.

(What is this?)

Obviously, I'm in no condition to write, so I'll just say this: a week ago, I called out Yuniesky Betancourt for his .552 OPS over a month and a half. In the seven games since, he's gone 14-27 with four doubles and a triple. At .263/.287/.383, the guy is Deivi Cruz. Like, on the nose. Only Betancourt knows how to catch, and stuff. And really, can a sure-handed Deivi Cruz really be considered that big of a liability? Oh, how our tunes can change in so little time.

Jeff Harris and Josh Towers tomorrow, same start time.
