Miami - So, keep me company while I replenish fluids from the three pounds I think I lost running this morning. Wow. Earlier in the day doesn’t necessarily mean better in this muggy South Florida heat, and maybe later doesn’t either. I’m starting to feel for these pitchers, like Javier Vazquez and his 120 pitches last night.
So there were about five glaring things that went wrong last night, and they’ve been well-documented on the last blog (I’m thinking maybe a punching bag with Greg Norton’s face on it would help a lot of folks get through the day).
But I figure a lot of it had to do with Vazquez running out of gas, not having his usual control, and maybe staying in little too long in what blew up into a five-run inning by the time Kris Medlen was through. I imagine Bobby Cox was concerned about not having some of his bullpen available, aka Rafael Soriano -
