After this, one can only go home and hope for tomorrow being a better day. I was a bit concerned with Ryan Perry's innings. Either he's not getting enough work to stay sharp, or he's really the seventh man in the bullpen and ought to be looking nervously towards Chien Ming Wang's return. Meanwhile, I find myself thinking more playing time needs to be found for Steve Lombardozzi. He did a decent job in Ryan Zimmerman's absence, and seems to get his hits despite warming the bench for extended periods.
