Starting pitcher M.C. O'Connor
What is it with these guys? One week it's 3-2/3, 10 hits, 6 ER, another it's baseball history. Take this BZ fellow, one week it's 4-1/3, 10 hits, 9 ER, another it's "quality start." In fact, ol' no. 75 has made five starts (31 IP) and allowed a total of 9 runs since the aforementioned debacle. Hey, I'm not complaining, if our very own Jeff Spicoli wants to wear that jacket, he's going to have to keep pitching like this. Matt Cain gives up 4 runs and we get lamentations and gnashing of teeth; Tim Lincecum gives up 3 runs and we wear sackcloth and ashes. Da Beezy gives us a QS and we worship his calluses. Not that I'm complaining, like I said, it's just that we're grading on a curve here, you know what I mean? Another great day for Eugenio Velez--this guy is really lighting it up!
