I guess the main thing to take away from this series is that while it is frustrating to not sweep a series, we’re stil on pace to win about 108 games this year, so that’s not too bad. Secondly, while we have been playing great baseball, our last three series have been against the Royals, Indians and Royals. We’ll know much more about this team when we play the Yankees and Rays (although we shouldn’t base our entire knowledge base on these two series). Secondly, Nick Blackburn is starting to worry me. More on him this week.
