um wtf

make it stawp
Like I said a week or so ago, Melvin is going to have a tough decision to make re: Balfour in the playoffs. Even now when he does get saves, it's like a 30-pitch war of attrition for one inning of work, seems like he gets a 3-ball count on every batter. I think it would be a lot easier decision if Cook were lights-out right now, but since he's struggling, too, does he stick with Balfour as "THE" closer? Or does he just go by his gut and use any of Balfour, Cook, Doolittle?

First things first though, so just win the division already.
Magic # is 5. The division is a foregone conclusion at this point, barring an epic collapse. Even when the team struggled out of the All-Star break they didn't have a crazy long losing streak.

Nothing is a forgone conclusion in baseball... see last season Texas.

let's hope cook and balfour don't suck today.

Anderson for 3 innings would be cool
