Ups and Downs

As harrowing as Tuesday's game was, last night's game was pleasant. It was basically against a minor league team, but it still counts. Oliver Perez still pitched well, and the offense still swung the bats well.

One thing it was good to see was runs in the top of the 9th to make it 13 to 0. There was no mailing it in, or signs that anyone thought 'Hey, maybe we got enough tonight.' Excepting Casanova, the rest of the bench and bullpen got their first appearances out of the way. Billy Wagner managed to come into a non-save situation and not pitch like me.

The news about Pedro is not good. Four to six weeks plus rehabilitation. The biggest impact this has is on Mike Pelfrey. If Pelfrey can figure out how to be consistent and pitch like he seems to be capable of, Pedro will barely be missed. We'll see how that goes, against Glavine of all people, on Saturday. Maybe Pelfrey will make his case that it's him that will replace Glavine's innings from last year, and that Santana's are just icing on the cake.

The baseball season is here, and it's even been christened with it's first wrinkle. You didn't really think the entire season was going to be as easy as Monday did you?
