I'm not going to allow myself to think about Derek Lowe until tomorrow.

Can Derek Lillibridge pitch?

Would be nice to switch McAllister to tomorrow and allow Lowe to be a burnt offering for the Verlander game.

I would hope Acta has a quick trigger finger ready tomorrow when it comes to Lowe. You have to get two of three in this series and you don't want to be depending on beating Verlander. Use your bullets on Tuesday and extend that bullpen if need be.

Dear Baseball Powers That Be:

I propose when a pitcher comes into a game with his team winning AND he is unable to hold the lead he CAN NOT get a win if his teammates pull his bacon out of the fire. The win would instead go to the pitcher that was hoping to get a win until his teammate blew it.

Thank you.

I love it when Hammy interviews Pronk after a win. How about we start a petition to have Pronk not come back as DH next season but instead take Rosie's seat in the booth? What a crazy team Hammy and Pronk would make doing play-by-play! Rosie can still stick around to pull up stats for the guys to quote and if he's a good boy they might let him call an inning or two as a side-kick again.

Not a bad Idea. Pronk really would make a great color commentator.
