Road Trip Redux

So you DO realize that if the bullpen is even close to ordinary this past week that we go 6-0 on that road trip?

We left town tied for 1st place and we come home a game up.

I recall a 1986 regular season game being decided against us by a 9th inning balk - I think it was against Boston, anyway at least there is competition for pathetic losses, but on Thursday we lost our hold on 1st place in perhaps the most humiliating regular season defeat in franchise history and we promptly hop on a plane and show up to Eddie Vedder Stadium with the broom.

So we got us some class, some character on this team. And also what we have is facial hair. Lots of it. Look:

Manicured facial hair:
Vlad
Bengie
Jose
Garret
Kotchman
Maicer
Figgins
Santana
Paul Byrd

Scraggly/Scruffy facial hair:
Erstad
Shields
Washburn
Peralta
Frankie
Cabrera
Juan Rivera

Cleanshaven:
Kennedy
DaVanon
Finley
Esteban Yan
Donnelly
Colon
Kevin Gregg
Lackey
Jeff Mathis
