Coin Flip landed on heads. Oliver Perez was exceptional last night. The story of the game was his ability to throw his change-up for strikes to right-handed hitters. It could be the turnaround pitch he’s always needed. But, as with all things Perez, let’s see him do it again.
I’m not buying Jerry Manuel when he said Daniel Murphy’s relay throw to Jose Reyes was a planned play.
I don’t like what I’m seeing from Reyes offensively. He’s not working the count and he has too much of an uppercut to his swing.
I still like Luis Castillo hitting second and Murphy down in the order. With how the 3-4-5 hitters are getting on base there would be plenty of RBI opportunities for him batting sixth or seventh.
Still not producing with RISP. That was a gift inning that doesn’t come along a lot. Not too often will you get four runs on a bunt single.
