Yesterday never happened

We all knew HoRam wasn't winning that game yesterday. It didn't matter what the score was or how many runs he allowed. We took the game on Monday we had to have, and lost the game we were destined to lose.

Today rightly is the big game. Win this evening, you win the series and have a chance at the post season. Lose and October will require help from others as you no longer control your destiny.

I have been amused at the arguments Geoff Baker has been making on the Times blog. The team has lost 10 of its last 11 games, but he is absolutely certain McLaren made the right call in sticking with the status quo.

He is also certain Vidro and Ibanez have proven they will have a big September.

I hope he's right.
