Odds And Ends

Odds And Ends: Ibanez, Escalona, Werth, Romero

A few notes on this off day:

  • Triple Crown update: Raul Ibanez is hitting .357 (5th, NL) with 13 HR (2nd, NL) and 35 RBI (2nd, NL). His 1.139 OPS leads the National League.

“Unbelievable, really,” he said, grabbing a phone from the locker and pointing to the screen. “14 texts!”

Yeah, I don’t even get 14 texts for my birthday. Good job, Sergio.

How big is this? He’ll instantly change the pitching staff, allowing Scott Eyre to move back to middle relief and taking the load off Chad Durbin and Clay Condrey, middle relievers uncomfortable with multiple late-inning appearances.
