Saturday a.m. things

1-6 in the last 7 games, 4 of which were at home, all of which were against teams that don't appear to have a realistic chance at the playoffs.

Jeff Wilson says the meltdown yesterday was total -- every aspect of the team was terrible.  Can't really argue with that.

Wilson also says that Michael Young story is overblown, and is just giving the media something different to write about. 

Evan Grant's game story does focus more on the bizarre Young/Vizquel give-up pinch hitting decision, with Marlon Byrd being quoted as saying that the players would have liked to have seen what Young could have done in that situation.

This does, of course, end up distracting from another bad Matt Harrison start, and another awful performance from the bullpen. 

Anthony Andro writes about one of the few positive stories out there right now, Nelson Cruz's strong early start.
