**Update** Broken up through 7 2/3 with a Kennedy base hit to center on a 3-2 count, two-outs.

Freddy Garcia

“Fred” (as dubbed by the Angels anouncer) GarcĂ­a perfect through 7.

Maybe he found his right blend of …uhm… herbs.

But the interesting thing happened in the top of the sixth. With Iguchi on second and Thome on first, Konerko blooped a single to right-center with 2 outs. Iguchi misread it and slowed down mid-way between third and home, thinking the ball had been caught. Rivera quickly fired the ball to the cut-off man, who then fired to the catcher. Iguchi out.

Oh, BTW, he’s in my fantasy team. That is, the team that finished dead last in my league.

    I think the Braves are in for a long period of suckiness, now that they don’t have Leo to turn flotsam into ace relievers anymore.

    It’s going to take the Braves several years to figure out that John Scheurholtz and Bobby Cox just aren’t all that good without Leo Mazzone. In the meantime, they will have a really tough time trying to keep up with the Mets, Marlins, and Phillies.
