Three Out of Four...

That's what it will take to get this thing done. No worries - Big, Bad John is on the mound tomorrow and I like our chances. Colon didn't pitch poorly except for that first inning, which of course, was the difference in the game. Had our arthritic left-fielder gotten a better jump on Cano's well-struck ball in the first inning, the score would have been 1-2 instead of 4-2.

But alas, it was not to be. I thought I understood Scioscia's lineup rationale. - When there's a right-hander on the mound, Anderson in the outfield allows him to have Kotchman as DH. Um, okay, Anderson was in left and Rivera was the starting DH. - Wait, what? If Rivera and Anderson were both in the game, Rivera should have started in left with Anderson as DH - right? I can't wait to see what tomorrow's lineup will be.

I wore my #40 jersey to today's game hoping some of that Percival post-season mojo would rub off on Colon. - But to my surprise, that song started over the loudspeakers, and Percy took the mound to claim his mojo. It was the fastest first-pitch ceremony I have ever witnessed. He threw out the first pitch to his buddy Erstad, and just like that...he disappeared down the dugout steps.

First pitch tomorrow is @ 7:05 - and three out of four will turn into two out of three soon after...
