Eric Milton (0-0, 4.50) vs. Aaron Cook (3-1, 4.68).
SoSG Sax: Hi, Eric. What's happening? We need to talk about your ERA reports.
Eric Milton: Yeah. My last start. I know, I know. Uh, Joe talked to me about it.
SoSG Sax: Yeah. Did you get that memo?
Eric Milton: Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy, I need to last more than four innings and not give up the lead twice when I start a game. And the problem is just that I forgot the one time (which was my first start in two years following Tommy John surgery). And sure, you're starting me at Coors Field against a guy who pitched a four-hit shutout in his last start, but it's okay. I've already taken care of it, working out the kinks in my delivery and all, so it's not even really a problem anymore.
SoSG Sax: Uh,......yeah. It's just we're expecting better results on all of our ERA reports from our starting pitchers. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to last longer than four innings from now on, that'd be great. Or it's back to a windowless room in the basement for you, Milton--without your red stapler this time. All right!
