Jeeeeez!!! That's two more games on this road trip we should have won. Bob Wickman is having his issues here lately. I wonder if we'll see a shift to the seventh or eighth for Bob, with Soriano or Gonzo taking over ninth inning duties - I vote for Soriano.

Let's see if Tim Hudson can play stopper and blank the Phillies like he did the Marlins the last time out for eight innings...then we'll let Soriano come on and save the game. At this point, Moylan or Yates might be better than Wickman. Also, we'll be getting Chad Paronto back this Friday if everything goes well in his rehab starts this week. That will be a big boost to the quality and depth of our bullpen.

13 walks...ugh!
