A few thoughts on the Ryan Howard signing:
- Who would you rather have standing up there last night with the bases loaded: Howard or Bonifacio?
- And who would you rather have DH’ing when the Braves go to Houston next month: Howard or Kurt Suzuki?
- I’d bet on Rio Ruiz getting a promotion before Howard.
- Whither Barbaro Canizares?
So last night I dumped on Colon and Kemp and they were the stars of the game. Unfortunately I’m expecting good things tonight from Jaime Garcia.
The line-up’s the same, with Flowers back at catcher tonight.
