Just for fun, take a look at last year’s Game 77 lineup. For those of you that are disinclined to make an extra click or two, you are missing out on the wonders of Alberto Gonzalez, Chris Stewart, Jayson Nix, Lyle Overbay, and the festering remains of Travis Hafner. There are some holdovers, to be sure, and Brian Roberts and Kelly Johnson sure don’t feel much better than some of those guys … but tonight’s lineup has the look of something more potent, at the very least.
And then, while you wait (and if you still have clicks to spare), read Katie’s piece on Kuroda’s impressive month of June … and hope that he ends the month with style.
