|Colby Rasmus just bit his tongue.|
So Brad Mills, huh? Nothing like getting staked to a 6-0 lead and blowing it by the end of the third inning. I realize that I was really pining for Bradley to be up with the big club earlier this year, since, you know, he was dummying AAA hitters in a hitters environment for the last 2 years, albeit, this is/was his third season there. Well, I've changed my mind, sue me. Maybe send him to the bullpen and let Luis Perez start next time, since, you know, he went four solid innings in relief.
Did anyone else notice Jose Bautista get on base FIVE TIMES last night? Zaun. Edwin got on four times too, and actually threw his bat twice in one AB. Pretty awesome. Aaron Hill even joined the party. Colby Rasmus also had a bases-loaded double in the first inning.

Elsewhere, Chris Lund from The Hardball Times calls our very own Yunel Escobar the best SS in the American League. You'd think he could have gotten an All-star nod, but I guess not.
Dustin Mcgowan had another rehab start yesterday in New Hampshire, and it went well again. 4 IP 4 H, 3 k's 1 BB 0 ER. 57 Pitches, 39 Strikes. He's scheduled to pitch 3 more times before the end of the month (read: before MLB rosters expand), which should theoretically expand him to a 90-ish pitch capacity. He could start instead of Brad Mills! Especially with the expanded rosters.
Casey Janssen will apparently be typecast as the 8th inning guy, with Frank Frank being the closer, now that Jon Rauch has been DL'ed. Rajai Davis also got an MRI the other day, confirming the fact that he has a torn hamstring, and will miss a few weeks. He hopes to get back in to games before the end of the year, but I kind of doubt that one.
