Well, Jo-Jo's start didn't go as well as I'd hoped, but I think there were some positives to take away from his outing. One could make the case that he really only made the two bad pitches that resulted in homeruns, every other hit was single. It was his first start and he'll learn.

One pitcher who seems to be impervious to learning is today's starter Kyle Davies. He's facing old friend Greg Maddux, and with the game on ESPN I'm sure it will be a Maddux love fest for Morgan who will likely gush every time he throws a pitch. Oh well, mute the TV and turn on the radio once again.
