Kevin Millar bruised his right hand after being hit by a pitch. X-rays were negative, and he's day-to-day.
Meanwhile, it's evident that Miguel Tejada is playing hurt. He couldn't go full speed on his tapper in front of the plate in the second inning, stumbling at one point and then downshifting.
Yes, I agree with the readers who thought Tejada should have been switched to designated hitter, with Chris Gomez starting at shortstop, once Javy Lopez was scratched. Once Millar was hurt, Jeff Conine could have moved to first base, with Luis Terrero going to left field.
Brian Roberts already has batted three times, and we've only played three innings. Felix Hernandez has great stuff, but he's in danger of falling to 0-4.
What's gotten into Corey Patterson? The guy is on fire, but I'd still leave him in his present spot in the order. Resist any temptations to elevate him to second. If it ain't broke...
LenDale White must be chewing his nails now while still waiting for a team to draft him. Knowing him, that'll add 12 pounds.
