Bad news all around

"Blummy," as he is ridiculously known, has soreness in his back.

Oh yeah, and they sucked it up again today, this time losing 12-1 to the Mets, managing just five hits. Two from Chris Johnson, one from Bourn, Erstad and Abercrombie.

Now for your pitching lines:
Wandy: 2IP, 3H, 5R (1ER), 2BB, 1K
Hensley: 2IP, 3H, 3R (1ER), 0BB, 2K
Graves: 1IP, 4H, 3ER
de la Vara: 1IP, 3H, 1R (0ER)
Byrdak: 1IP, 1H, 1K
Wright: 1IP, 0H, 0R

Notice all those unearned runs? Today we had two Es from Tejada, one from Wandy and one from Chris Johnson.

Let's rundown the errors made this spring:
Smith: 4
Tejada: 4
Abercrombie: 3
Maysonet: 2
Newhan: 2
Backe: 1
Berkman: 1
Blum: 1
Bourn: 1
Fulchino: 1
Gall: 1
Johnson: 1
Kata: 1
Lee: 1
Manzella: 1
Wandy: 1
Saccomanno: 1
Wright: 1

That's 28 errors in 20 games. 124 runs given up, only 94 of them earned. 30 unearned runs. Who has been the "beneficiary" of these gifts to the opposite team? Moehler has six unearned runs; Wandy, Wesley, and Brad James have four.
