Right now...

It's 3-0 Phils, bottom of the third.

Day really had me fooled. He had a great first inning, but in the second and third, he started to be real tentative, walking hitters and giving them pitches to hit. Through three innings, he's thrown 61 pitches!! That's not good! Our starting pitching has just not been getting it done. (In contrast, Lidle has thrown only 26 pitches through 2 and 2/3)

(Holy cow, Guzman just singled to center!)

Day is a sinkerball pitcher and he HAS to remember that he's most successful when letting the hitters put the ball in play. He needs to be confident and he'll do OK.
