Game status

Okay, Boone makes up for some of his lousy defense this year by hitting a Grand Slam.

And Raul pulls a boneheaded move by swinging at the first pitch after we see Zito throw 25 pitches in the first inning and only 9 strikes.

Put simply, there is NO WAY Willie or Raul should be swinging at anything until they've seen Zito prove he can throw 3 strikes before he walks you.

That's just me though.
