"Deserve's Got Nothing To Do With It"

Kevin Youkilis was 1-2 with 1 HR (his 18th), 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored against the Blue Jays. He was taken out early because it was a laugher.

Ryan Braun was 2-5 with 1 RBI against the Pirates. Braun's hit in the 6th inning ended an 0-19 skid, which he admitted was the "toughest stretch" of his career. Braun later came through in the 10th inning with a walkoff single off Evan Meek, who has been lights out this year. Maybe this will get him going again.

Ian Kinsler was 2-5 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored against the Orioles.

Ike Davis was 1-4 with 1 double (his 16th) against the Braves.

Scott Feldman got a no decision against the Orioles, although he was in line for the win before Neftali Feliz gave up a grand slam to Corey Patterson in the 9th inning. Feldman went 7 innings and gave up 2 runs on 8 hits, 0 BBs, and 2 Ks. This was Feldman's 1st quality start since June 18. He certainly deserved the win. Oh well.

Craig Breslow pitched 1 inning and gave up 2 runs on 2 hits against the Angels.

Will Feldman be the odd man out in the rotation with Lee? Or is that Harrison?

Looks like Feldman is in. He's getting the start Sunday against BOSOX. Harrison pitched in relief yesterday.

The real question is what happens when Hardin and holland come off the DL?
