    Ibañez was sick today! The bullpen was great; Taschner pitched a scoreless inning. Lidge struck out 2 in 1.0 inning.

    I really like Ibañez behind Howard. He’s an RBI machine and will put the ball in play if the big man strikes out or homers. I also like Werth when he bats as No.2 in the lineup

    This game really got skipped over. Was it the busy news day, or the late game?

    IBANEZ=RBI Machine… I know that I sound like a broken record but I’m really excited about Ibanez. I think that this could work out really well. Regardless, he’s certainly an upgrade. How I would handle this… Werth bats 5th against lefties and Ibanez bats 5th against righties… give them both ample opportunities in the 5 hole and let’s not worry about bullpen situations; let’s get their starters out of the game early. Werth kills lefties but is not as solid against righties. Ibanez kills righties. It’s a really nice fit.
