I’m okay. Just on a lot of meds. Concussion, neck and back strain, swollen jaw from hitting the steering wheel. Will be back covering the team today.

I did however see a spark of confidence last night from Pedro and Barajas – both showed nice pitch recognition for once, and absolutely ripped the ball several times just good defense. Barmes at this point has me wishing for Ronny Cedeno, I have been unimpressed with his defense and even with an occassional bunting episode, Ronny hit .230-.260 with at times spectacular defense… 
That’s really meaningless though as compared to what a confident and productive Pedro would mean to the club. Fingers crossed that he’ll work out of it, I’ve always been a supporter and I wish him success!

Saw on twitter she was in a car accident.

Opposite field loud out or not, Pedro still looks awful.

Is Hanrahan on his way to SF? Or did he really tweak his hammie?
