okay, we've had fun, but it's time to go, miguel. you never belonged on the team, and some people spent a lot of time pretending you did. at the top of the seventh, jaime bequeathed a game that was 6-2 cards. at the end of the seventh, it was 8-6. a lot of the baserunners were batista's, though a walk, a wild pitch, and a hbp from miller, and a single and a walk from motte didn't help. no, there's blame to go around, but this is the game where everyone with eyes and a brain should have realized miguel batista is not a major league pitcher. when kyle mcclellan rejoins us, there's no reason for him to stay on the squad, just none. all the babip and lob luck sustaining him has collapsed.
