18 starts

for Matt Cain, and he's gone 6 innings or more in ALL of them except two: the rain-shortened 5 IP CG in Washington on June 4th, and tonight. That ain't half bad, y'know? Preliminary news is that M.C. is OK--just a flesh wound. We'll see. Good thing there's a break coming up. The 'pen needed some work, anyway. Oh, did I mention that we won? That Pablo Sandoval is a god?

I don't know when I've observed a player improve like this before our very eyes. His weaknesses keep disappearing. He's taking pitches he used to never take. Has anyone ever hit such a high percentage of his homers to the opposite field?
I sure hope Cain's going to be okay. I guess it means no AS game for him.

Maybe I'm a glass-half-empty guy, but when I see "just a flesh wound," I can't help thinking of Monty Python and the Holy Grail...

Good point, but if I remember my Monty correctly, that wounded knight was a GMF and a real "gamer."
