Ok. Someone start packing John Burkett's bags -right now-, and put him on a plane. I don't care where it's going. I want Rupe as our #5
starter... even if this does turn out to be an atypically good night for him, it's better than we've gotten from Burkett in as long as I can remember. I'll take it.
On the down side... 11 men left on base tonight, 7 LOB in the first three innings alone
. (And it would have been 10 LOB in the first four innings if Ortiz hadn't come through with a looper to right on a 2-2 count.) This has GOT to stop.
