From boo......to Boof

Posted at 3:27 PM on May 5, 2008 by Chris Dall

I thought David might have been getting a little carried away with his last post, but I think I've caught the fever after yesterday's win. I mean, who knows if they can keep this up, but wins like that have a way of igniting a team.

I also wonder if this could be turning point performance for Bonser. He's really pitched pretty well all season, but yesterday's performance showed a lot more than the numbers will indicate. Boof will probably never be a #1 or #2 type pitcher, but his effort against the Tigers shows he can be the type of pitcher that every staff needs: a battler. Even after getting hammered in that first inning he still kept throwing first-pitch strikes. Every starter on the team should watch a tape of that game.
