Well, no one has posted here about Vogie's game and last night's loss to the Cardinals, 2 - 0, so I guess I will. It might seem devastating in the wake of that dreadful June, but I don't really feel that way. Adam Wainwright, one of the best pitchers in the major leagues, shut us down. Our # 5 pitcher, Ryan Vogelsong, only allowed 2 runs and our relief did a pretty good job (actually, Romo was excellent in the 9th and was the only pitcher warmed up if the Giants would have scored). So I think that today's game will be much more telling. We have our #1 starter on the mound. According to the Chronicle (Henry Schulman) Gregor Blanco will not be batting lead-off, at least not when Belt returns on Friday. Hunter Pence will take his spot. I think this is an excellent idea.
In other news, Marco Scutaro is making progress, playing in the Arizona rookie league and gradually increasing the number of innings played. Angel Pagan is going to get another epidural injection in his lower back today.
