    Not a bad outing by Ortiz – he’s pitching into the seventh … and if he had any type of run support – he could be the winning pitcher!

    Nice outing for Ramon.

    Well, you did a good job of jinxing Ortiz. 😀

    Good outing, though.

    Re: jinx

    I predict Sean Casey will ground out to second base every 1.4 at-bats!

    Didn’t see a link for the 5/18 game, so I’m posting a comment here…Why is Jimenez playing over Kearns? I basically consider Freel the team’s 2nd baseman and leadoff hitter now. Let’s see Kearns play everyday! Maybe we would have seen Dunn score after the 2nd inning leadoff triple with someone other than Jimenez, Randa and Larue hitting behind him!
