A three game win streak makes life seem that much better. And with the win yesterday we can't finish last.
We have a tough one today with Felix Hernandez pitching for the M's. Ricky Romero gets the start for us. Romero hasn't been as good as he was early in the season but he has 15 quality starts on the season, which isn't bad. Funny for a lefty he has a lot more trouble with lefty batter, the and a .552 slugging average against him, while righties have only slugged .370. Today's lineup:

Yeah no Ruiz yet again. And Jose leading off....good, good, good. Adam Lind has had a nice run of late, he has 32 RBI in the last 33 games. A few of the bats are coming around. Vernon's had a good September and Bautista, Encarnacion and Snider have done well the last few days. Even Lyle Overbay has a 8 game hitting streak going.
Rod Barajas gets to have a day off so his 0 for 19 gets to wait for a day to add to his 0 for streak.
The thread title is from another George Harrison song 'Blow Away' that I had a great fondness from when I was younger, that was on a self titled Harrison album, one of the first LP's I ever bought. Not his best work but very enjoyable music. His music was always so optimistic,
