JJ redeemed himself tonight. After he and Jake Woods gave away the game last night, it was only fair that he (JJ) come in and show the team and the fans that he is the man, and that he deserves the closer's spot.

You can't win them all, and it would be nice if you could, but that isn't how life works.

Our offense was finally able to give Washburn some breathing room, by providing a good run cushion in the first two innings. It's too bad that Baltimore caught on, and brought in another pitcher, because I had a feeling we could have scored all night long.

It's a good thing the bats were warm tonight, because Washburn allowed four runs, and if we stuck with our normal scoring rate with Baltimore, this could have easily turned into a 4-3 win in favor of those yard birds.

I see that Mike Morse has come back to the bench for awhile, I hope he gets SOME time out on the field of play. I liked what I saw in him last year. I will admit his numbers at Tacoma aren't really all that hot, but it's not like Beltre and Sexson are batting .300 here, are they?

Boy, take a few days off and the team goes on a tear.....we are now within two games of Texas, and one game behind Oakland. That also goes without saying that we are only four games from going .500 for the season thus far. Given the past couple of years of crappy baseball from the M's this IS something to crow about.

I don't know how long this will last, but it's going to be an exciting ride to say the least.

I think we can take Lopez early too.
