In today's hot new episode of Faces, Jarrod Washburn looks like he's getting pretty tired of you knocking on his door every day at six in the morning to ask if he wants his address re-painted on the curb, and Andy Sonnanstine looks like a 45 year old brick mason.

After an offday of speculation, Yuni's in the lineup tonight, so if Wakamatsu's sending a message, it's a vote of confidence instead of a threat. My hope is that the two have talked behind closed doors and this is the beginning of a probationary period of sorts for our delightfully spherical little shortstop, but for all I know it's just as likely they haven't said a word to each other since March, so whatever. I'd have rather seen Cedeno tonight, but God knows this won't be the last opportunity for Wakamatsu to scare Yuni shitless.
