Games 136 and 137 - Blah And Bang!

Nothing much to say about game 136.

Felix provided another outstanding outing in game 137. The remarkable thing about Felix (IMHO) is his ability to stay cool under pressure. I'm sure you've all read the accounts in the dailies concerning his ability to refocus after becoming distracted, but it was very clear yesterday to the observer that he was able to make his pitches when he absolutely needed to. And he will only get better. Long Live The King!!!

A few words about Yuniesky Betancourt. I'm surprised that there haven't been any comparisons to the young Ozzie Smith - who was, as you may recall, quite a light hitter in his early days with the Padres. But that magical glove. And Betancourt is every bit the dazzler on defense that Ozzie was.
