    DRG here again. I can be reached here. The Good: Lot’s o’ alcohol during a game like that. The Bad: James Shields outing was only 1 out longer than his shortest ever, a 3.1 inning performance last July against the Yankees in which he gave up 10 runs…JP Howell’s first […]

    THE GOOD: Evan Longoria’s walk in the 2nd. Dirtbag is struggling and Joe Maddon always said he wanted to see how he would handle a slump. Even if the hits aren’t coming right now, you want to see that he still has a mastery of the strike zone and is […]

    THE GOOD: Another running grab by Carl Crawford in left. This is why he will win a gold glove despite having one of the worst outfield arms…Jonny Gomes home run was very Jose Canseco-esque. A LOT of Canseco’s home runs were all muscle. A lot of times he would get […]
