It was good to see the Park return to normal last night after the last game we went to: Drunk College Kids Night. There was a marked reduction in the number of Sylverster M. Johnson's boys at the park. Guess that was because the doggies were no longer a buck, so the college kids weren't gettin' too full and taking it out on each other.
To reward the fans who normally behave themselves, the doggies were back to $3.50 and the Bull's BB was smokin'. The mens room no longer was the Eagles game mens room
Freddie Garcia pulled another Kevin Millwood outting and lasted just 4 and change. Freddie doesn't have much of a wind-up, just kind of lifts his leg and fires. Most of his fastballs were around 89.
Future closing star Bret Myers was used a tad early in the sixth and Flash blew another one. But I was looking to see if Chris Coste was in the dugout. I guess not. Dobbs and Werth were used in crucial pinch hit situations. Their batting averages, however, were dropping faster than the cool night air.
Let's see how long Dobbs and teacher-pet Werth continue to flail away. Dobbs is hitting .167 and Werth .238. Of course Coste isn't setting the world on fire at Ottawa but they are still scraping ice off their windshields in the morning.
Who wants to join the Bring Back Coste Crusade ?
