"Yovani Gallardo is a good hitter"

That's what the KNBR boys said right before he jacked the game-winner. I was on the couch, sippin' some George Dickel No. 12 (mmm-mmmm!), and thinking "ol' Johnson's doin' alright" when the youngster from México spoiled things. Who wouldn't like to have that kid in their rotation? He's only 23!

He had a .743 OPS in 42 PAs in 2007 (he was hurt most of last season).

A hit and a walk for Mississippi Fred Lewis, and a nice outing for Merkin Valdez are my highlights.


p.s. FanGraphs has a post (Matthew Carruth, 4/8) on Lincecum and his "value" in long-term contract talks. This might be the most important thing the club does this year or next. You build championships around great players, no?

We can stop wondering if Pablo will get 2 hits every game.
Let's see how long he streaky-hitting Rowand can stay hot.
So far Burriss is 0 for '09.
