Pay no attention to that spirit-crushing loss

Let's just focus on the fact that Rod Barajas is awesome. (Or at least: awesome lately.) Not only can he hit like Johnny Bench right now, but he'll also drill Reggie Willits in the back for an out, or even block the plate when necessary. (Eat that shit, Phillies fans.)

The fragility of future plans
Travis Snider got drilled in his (thankfully) helmeted melon yesterday with a foul ball while standing in the on deck circle. While he seems as though he'll be fine, the Rotoworld fellas quite rightly mention Juan Encarnacion, whose career is done after a similar incident. So say a little prayer of thanks.

Barajas is SICK!

and although i don't usually look to the heavens in time of need and despair, i think i'm going to go to temple tonight and pray for snider. he's the future, after all...

If I ever saw the runner running on the inside of the line, I'd drill him for the easy out.
