"Today was an outstanding performance by him. I thought it was going to get to him a little bit, pitching against his old team and with 40,000 people and against Johan Santana. But he saved the best for today."
(Manny Acta, via Washington Post, 6/10/2007)
Manny's decision to stick with Speigner in the rotation pays off for a night: Levale (6IP, 2H, 1R) outduels Johan Santana(!?)
Meanwhile, all the guys with sore arms -- a.k.a. 4/5ths of the starting rotation -- should be back soon..who needs 'em?
(...and another hit for Da Meat Hook. Trade him, Jim!)
