Juan Pierre, Two Pierre, Red Pierre, Blue Pierre
*Since returning from the DL in late July, Laynce Nix is an ugly 5-31 (.161 AVG) with 17 K.
*Papelbon has pitched in 10 consecutive scoreless appearances. Considering he's blown only 3 saves, and locked down 27 games, he's come as advertised (90% success rate).
*I'm rooting for Domonic Brown, but he just doesn't look good at the plate or in the field. Where's his power? He make terrible reads of fly balls/line drives. I thought he was supposed to be a gifted athlete...
*Kyle Kendrick toes the slab today in search of his 49th career victory. It's hard to believe KK has a positive winning percentage (48-39, .552%) with all the flak he catches from Phans.
