Brandon Backe vs. John Patterson
Have a great deal of respect for Patterson, but the real story is that Backe needs to have a good outing after the disaster vs. the Tigers
We're counting on you Brandon . . . .
Have we gotten far enough into Spring Training, and will we be seeing enough of a regular season lineup today, to note that Backe pitched six innings and lost last July 23 against the Nationals, giving up six hits and four runs at RFK?
If not, ignore the last paragraph.
In keeping with that ever popular "lazy Sunday" theme, I think I'll listen in without transcribing the play by play today if that's alright.
