Janish gets the call

Paul Janish is headed for big leagues. Jeff Keppinger fouled a ball off his knee and broke a bone. Shortly afterward, Janish was removed from the Louisville lineup. It didn't take a genius to figure out the reason, and sure enough, by the end of the game, it was official. Keppinger is headed for the DL, and Janish will take his spot on the roster.

I don't know who will be the starting SS. They may try Hairston at SS, with Janish as utility infielder. I hope they give Janish a chance, though. He's been hitting really well, and defensively, he's probably better than anyone they have up there, including Keppinger.

I'm glad Janish is getting a shot, but what a bummer for Keppinger. He was one of the few bright spots for the Reds this season. A definite fan favorite. And what a bummer for the Reds. Kepp was one of their most productive players.

Andy Phillips was 1 for 4, so his hitting streak is alive at 16 games. He's batting a respectable .318.

Yankees lost a hearbreaker in extra innings tonight. With Mo on the mound, no less. But hey, if you only score one run in 11 innings, you can't expect to win.

Could this really be the year when Tampa wins the division? Eh, probably not. It's early yet. They're peaking too soon. would be kind of cool if it happened. If the Yankees can't take the division...well, better Tampa than Boson.
