Because I have a special request and dedication for Nick Punto....
Jason Bartlett was awesome today. 3 for 4 with an RBI and a stolen base. I know I shouldn't be happy about that anymore, but old habits die hard.
Instead, I am supposed to be happy about Livan Hernandez. And I am working on it. Kicking a ball to first for an out is wicked cool, no doubt. By the time Monday night rolls around I will probably be able to muster at least a modicum of enthusiasm for the dude when he's announced as our starting pitcher. I'm thinking a solid 4 to 5 claps, with the possible addition of one moderate-volume "woo-hoo." We'll see how it goes.
Nothing too crazy though.
Nick Punto is the boyfriend today, for no other reason than I like him and he volunteered to play centerfield and I bet it was supercute.
