Looking to the minors for some better news...

Well, perusing the box scores...

Gerald Laird hit his 12th homer of the season, which is good to see.

John Hudgins had an okay outing -- 3 runs in 6 2/3 IP, 3 Ks and 2 walks. I'd feel better if he'd get that K/BB ratio a little higher.

Jason Botts took a collar, and struck out all four times, while Ian Kinsler went 3 for 4.

Edison Volquez retired all 3 batters he faced in the Texas League All-Star Game, striking out 2, and apparently, was extremely impressive in the process.

Vince Sinisi is 1 for 2 with a walk so far in the Bakersfield/Visalia game, continuing his push to get out of A-ball and to Frisco, where he belongs.
