Yes, you read that correctly, folks; Starling Marte has been reinstated from the DL and will start in left field tonight.

Additionally, Chad Qualls' Mom apparently kissed his toe boo-boo and made it all better; he'll be coming off the DL on Sunday.

Excellent news about Starling.

A sweep would be tremendous for obvious reasons. No let down tonight!

Going to be shy of a sellout tonight. The end sections in the upper deck are empty, and the upper bleachers are only about 1/3 full. I'm going to guess 32,500. Hrm.

Probably people don't want to be around "woooooooo" all night long. That crap is getting old. Worse than the wave....

Hate to say it, but if Barmes is at short on that Soriano ground ball, we're out of the inning with no damage. Very shaky D that 1st inning.

Um ... I have no explanation for what is up with Marte. This is baffling.

Like a rookie WR who drops an easy catch taking his eyes off the ball while thinking about the 80 yard run-after-catch, I think Marte was thinking about throwing Soriano out at the plate on the second error.

I don't know if Travis Wood is totally changing things up from what he normally does or what, but we can't get a bead on him at all. He doesn't appear to have particularly nasty stuff or anything. Hrm.

I can't quite tell from up here, but I think we decided to play the field wearing roller skates tonight.

He's a rookie playing his 25th game ever after a lot of time off for an injury......that's what's up

I can tell you exactly what is going on from a defensive stand point:

1. A rookie LF who is playing his 25th game after time off from an injury.
2. A rookie 2nd baseman playing his 7th game.
3. A guy playing SS who isn't a SS.
