ERV Boxscore for June 5, vs. Florida

First place. Alone. Third-most wins in the NL. Magic number: 106. Magic Number against the last place team: 105. You thought it was tight in the East on Friday? It got tighter over the weekend. We've just gone 7-1 against the likes of the Cards, Braves and Marlins after going 1-5 against the Blue Jays and Reds. In baseball, nobody knows nothing.


-- Ryan Church CAN hit lefties.

-- This weekend demands a new Top Ten Most Valuable Plays of the Year post. Churchy should have two spots on it. I'll try to do that in the next few days.

-- Dexys's post about how the non-Natosphere universe views Frank was spot on. Baseball Tonight leads off by saying "Frank Robinson" has the Nats in first, and Tim Kurkjian gave him a lot of love in a segment on the Nats.

-- Speaking of managers, I feel for Marlin fans. Paul LoDuca is really struggling, and even when going good, he's not the best hitter. But Jack McKeon had him batting 3rd today. Also, Jack kept having Juan Pierre bunt and give us outs. It's fun when you benefit from the "senior moments", as Capitol Punishment calls them.

ERV Win: Church & Patterson
ERV Loss: Perisho & Mecir

3 Most Valuable Plays:
(1) Church's HR in the 8th (5.39)
(2) Harris's double in the 8th (4.01)
(3) Easley's error in the 8th (3.53)
