Game Day: Injured Pitcher Edition

Mike Hampton and John Patterson both come of the DL today to make starts. Hampton had a glorified muscle cramp in his arm. Patterson had a bad back, and later a reaction to the medication he received for it.

Hampton has pitched exceedingly well this year, and it's important to work the count against him. He'll walk batters if they give him the chance. (I'm not holding my breath with this team!)

Wife Beatin' Wil Cordero comes off the DL today too. Brendan Harris and Tyrell Godwin were the roster casualties.

We're back up to 12 pitchers, which is definitely one too many. Expect to see more Carlos Baerga critical at-bats.
