Gameday Thread, #75: 6/24 vs Angels

Bartolo Colon, RHP (0-3, 5.57)
Claudio Vargas, RHP (6-4, 5.02)

Here we go again. Perhaps if we all close our eyes until we get past the first inning, and pretend it doesn't happen, we just might stand a chance. Not that Colon has exactly been a force to be reckoned with thus far, but he's only made four starts. Last time wasn't bad - nine hits and a walk over seven innings, with two earned runs.

Vargas was the last starter to pitch in a win - not that he got the win, of course. However, two runs in six innings against Pittsburgh was good enough to keep us in the game. So hopefully, he'll be able to do the same again, and we can build on last night's hit-parade, by actually driving in some runs today. Though "hope" is basically all we've got to cling onto, rather than, say, "realistic expectations of victory".
