A few notes:

  • The lack of faith in Oliver Perez is not surprising.  Although he did last 4.1 innings yesterday.
  • Johan Santana is the man around these parts.
  • I'm intrigued by the Carlos Beltran/Endy Chavez UZR battle.  Hopefully Endy can hack it as a full time starter.
  • Brad Lidge gave up a home run in game #3 this season, after giving up 2 all of last season.  All I can say is, it's about time his luck ran out.  Lidge has the lead on F-Mart in their little matchup.
  • Good luck everyone!
