Their Michael Martinez:
Juan Uribe has never been much of an "average" hitter but he had enough power to make him a viable offensive option for the infield. But his .204 average and 4 home runs just doesn't cut it now.
Their Danys Baez:
Jonathan Broxton - A closer with a 5.68 ERA? Who is this guy, Jeff Brantley? Broxton has been hurt much of this season, so if you don't remember him, here's a refresher.
What We're Drinking:
Corey - Green tea. I'm trying to lay off the sugar containing beverages for a while and I'm drinking waaaaay too much Coke Zero. So, a few cups of freshly brewed green tea should help spice things up and the caffeine might help keep me up for the 10 o'clock starts.
Carson - Powerade Zero. I'm painting 3 rooms in 3 days and it's muggy as hell up in here, so I need to stay hydrated. Gatorade/Powerade is good for replenishing electrolytes, but the stuff is loaded with carbohydrates. Therefore I turn to Powerade Zero, with ZERO calories, but more electrolytes than water and a better taste too. I like all the flavors, but grapes is my favorite.
Two of three for the good guys.
