It's about damn time

Well, that wasn't easy. Wouldn't you know that Blownitez would come into a 5-1 game with 2 outs and turn it into a 5-3 nailbiter with the tying run at first, walking the bases full on 4 pitches and then giving up a 2-run single? Listening over XM, I could hear that the booing was steady throughout his appearance. At one point, Duane Kuiper noted that Armando had thrown a purported 80 mph splitter that had no movement.

It was Armando's 281st career save, showing what a bogus stat saves can be. GET. RID. OF. HIM. NOW.

As for Barry Bonds, he had another hit in his first at bat -- making Bochy's decision to bat him 3rd look pretty good. This time, it was a double off the wall that drove in Roberts. Don't be surprised if the Dodgers start walking him in the first inning.
