COMMENTS: Ugh, so last night's game was a little ugly. Kuroda looked shaky at the start of the game, our mighty bullpen started to show some kinks in the armor, and our bats fizzled with men in scoring position (13 men LOB). What do we need? Our ACE to come in and right the ship. I'm sure that Bills told Joe Torre the same thing that Ace Ventura said: "I'm ready to go in coach, just give me a chance!" We need the next two wins to salvage the series. Plus Orel and I will be at the game tonight! Let's Go Blue!
