Alfonso Soriano goes back to being mortal.
CJ Wilson was decent enough to eek out a win. The Halos bullpen made it much more eek worthy than needed.
Recently it seems that our manager has no idea how to manage a bullpen (I know I am being redundant). Mike's new plan is that every bullpen clown gets to face one batter and then move on. I don't know how this play's into awesome strateegery; but it almost cost the Halos another game.
Great game by Chris Nelson: A solo home run and then a grand slam. Of note; "Denny's" started the "Grand Slam" in honor of Hank Aaron.
Also of note... If you have not heard; MLB is going to broaden their instant replay next season. Of course the example they are showing on ESPN is today's game where Conger "caught" a strike three foul tip and the batter was called out.

This is not about just one man. It may look that may when the games begin and Alfonso Soriano treats opposing pitchers like uniformed piñatas.
