Bullpen amazes

While the brawl was the talk of the day, the bullpen is in my mind the single biggest factor in the M's success in '07. With the bases loaded and nobody out, to get out of the inning w/o giving up a run was huge. O'Flaherty was fantastic in bailing out Feierabend, but I guess we should expect that based on the season so far.

Taking 3 out of 4 against Oakland will make any Mariner fan happy. While it looks like we won't be upgrading our starting rotation courtesy of the White Sox, there is plenty to look forward to for the remainder of the season.

It's been years since we have had a decent team again- let's make sure to enjoy it.
