Shhhhhh….let’s try not to get too excited, and don’t tell anyone, but the Ray’s bullpen is starting to look decent. We can’t help but notice that the strong outings by the bullpen over the last 4 days began the day after Dan Miceli went on the DL…So THAT is what a major league bullpen looks like…From the offensive bullpen to the offense…maybe it is a coincidence…maybe Jason Kendall is a terrible defensive catcher…maybe it is because of the return of Julio Lugo to the top of the order or maybe it is due to a more agressive approach by manager Joe Maddon, but the team is starting to be much more aggressive on the basepaths. The team had 5 stolen bases on Sunday, including 2 each from the team’s first two batters. Even Ty Wiggington got in on the fun with his 1st of the season…SP Mark Hendrickson had trouble with his control, but pitched well enough to pick up his 2nd win.
