Last night's 5-3 loss to the Mariners was enough to make Alex Rios break his bat over his knee. (We fully expect to hear that he'll be out of the lineup with a crack patella any minute now.)
The game was also a friendly reminder that Dustin McGowan is still an emerging pitcher, and not yet Bob Gibson.
What you miss when you can't see the game: With an afternoon game airing only on the Rogers Preview channel, most of us didn't get the chance to see A.J. Burnett's hissy fit after being pulled from his first game back. Burnett has to realize that was being treated with kid gloves because of all the times that he has had to pull himself from games. You can't be a pepper racing wuss one day, and expect to get treated like the Man of Steel the next.
