The starters have been awful of late, and the offense seems to have come back to earth. They're still hitting pretty well, but when the starters keep putting the team in a deep hole every single night, it's really hard to keep coming back from that. Regression to the mean is a bitch. Fortunately, the bullpen has been solid, which means that the hitters at least get the opportunities to chip away.
Tonight Jeff Weaver tries to avoid the sweep, and one has to wonder which Weaver is going to show up. He's started four games so far, and his game scores are 73, 6, 83, and 3. The trend would indicate that he'll throw a no-hitter tonight, but I'm not even gonna bet my lunch money on that.
Hee-Seop Choi has finally started to hit. He'd been doing a bit better over the last week or so, then last night he went 4-5 with a homer, raising his average 60 points.
No painting got accomplished last night. I did mow the lawn. While doing so, I noticed that the grape vines I planted a week and a half ago appear to have died. Bother. I'm hoping they're just resting.
