The box score tells me the following:
-Nyjer Morgan has gone yet another day without being exposed as a fraud by major league pitching. Cool!
-Paul Maholm is legit. (As a non-profit blog with a readership of like...4... we don't have the power to jinx, right Matt?) I'd love to see a few more K's, and we need to see more strikes thrown (49/89!), but it seems like Paul kept his cool and pitched well enough to keep it close, and give our offense (?) a chance.
-Matt Capps is a save machine. 1 for 1, bitches!
Things the box score doesn't tell me:
-Which "A. LaRoche" played 1b, and which one played 3b. I know who's supposed to be where, but there's no way of verifying that J.R. got it right.
-How Maholm looked at the plate, drawing 2 walks after everyone else on the team struck out at least once.
-How Pujols looked when he decided not to go yard. Was it sort of a calm generosity in his eyes? Or a "you're lucky I'm saving myself for Snell" sneer?
Give me details on this and other happenings around town.
