We need to get this game today! Bullpen NOT helping! Outfield NOT helping last night. Offense needs to get going at the top of the line! AND it needs to NOT be so hot out here in the West. ugh! Fans cranking away, wet towels covering body. Give us a win so we can forget our woes guys.

Oh Geeezzz! I hope Sweeney isn’t badly injured! DeJesus and now Sweeney. Those walls are brutal – note to self – DO NOT HIT WALL!

Right White…thank goodness Soriano never goes to the wall to make such great catches as we couldn’t afford to lose him!!! If Sweeney is DL’d too bad Matt Szcuzr has been declared un-promotable because wouldn’t we need a CENTER FIELDER?? Oh, well better not to rush him, instead let’s have Borbon and his .200 average patrol center field, no sense in finding out what Szcuzr can do in the majors while we have such awesome options.

Woo Hoo!! Soriano 3 for 3, go ahead two run BOMB and no defensive damage done (DH!!) come and get him while he’s hot GMs!!! He’s on pace for EIGHTEEN homeruns!!! What are the AL GMs waiting for????
