    Thornton's been either feast or famine this year (he shut down the Yankees, Boston and the A's once too), but yeah, I'd forgotten how godawful our lineup was that day (subtract Straw also). Those 4 plus today's 8-9 hitters had 6 of our 7 hits. Pretty much tried to forget everything about that game.

    Papa Biggio did not look happy with Junior's baserunning.

    Geddy Lee from Rush is at the game. He's the guy in the darker baseball hat on the left of the big guy with the white baseball hat in the second row directly behind home plate (from pitcher's perspective). Fun fact.

    Miley's wild as hell, but it doesn't help when pitches in the middle of the zone are called balls.

    Looks like Miley isn't going to go past 4 innings tonight.

    TOR ending up with THREE kids from prominent veterans is pretty cool

    Big K

    Last couple of guys were really fouling off the good pitches Miley was making.

    Plus Yuli's little brother. They need pitching badly.

    Great job to minimize the damage there.

    Hopefully he's not a complete douchenozzle like his dad.
