No (well, little) Rain

1. Rain didn't prevent Liriano's start from counting (my fear when he had 4K, in his first perfect 2.0 IP), but it did keep it short.

2. Do I need to start the Luis Rivas watch back up? He's hitting .375/.444/.875/1.319 in September. Okay, its 3-8 with a BB, 2B, and HR, but still... Good luck wherever you end up next year, Luis R (1.0). Don't be a Guzman.

3. Somehow, Rincon getting the loss feels better than Mays "saving the loss*" for Liriano. I still would have liked Rincon to get that damned 3rd out though.

* Saving the loss: When a relief pitcher turning a save situation for the opposition into a non-save situation by giving up runs (not just ERs) that gives the opposition no save situation when the next inning begins. Note: this does not apply to the "pitching the last 3 innings in any win" save.

4. Elimination numbers as of Wednesday afternoon: 5 ALCD, 10 ALCS.

5. Barry Bonds better be available as a PH. (He's not starting for los Gigantes on "a day game after night game.") Too bad they can't DH him like the Twins do Mauer.
