Just When We Needed An Unsung Hero…

In Doug’s Dugout today, we talk about unsung heroes, dropping like flies, and other moronic thoughts: My primary thrust today was focusing on replacing Mike Pelfey’s innings (the Chris Schwinden experiment failed), but then Mike Nickeas and Jordany Valdespin had the audacity to interrupt me with last night’s heroics against the Phillies.
