Not only is Pete Walker's name in that headline, it also describes what Ted Lilly did last night.

Oh well, a one-run loss. The Blue Jays seemed to give up after the two-hour rain delay, didn't they? Tomorrow they could be swept in this three-game series.

It was nice timing for those of us listening on the radio, as the coverage of Canada's win over Russia over in Vienna ended right as Jerry Howarth announced the O-Dog's leadoff double.

Pete Walker was very good in relief tonight, throwing 3.2 scoreless innings. One hit, one walk, three strikeouts. If this was a Minor League Update, Walker would be the First Star.
Second Star: Orlando Hudson, 2-for-5, double, 2 RBI.
Third Star: Alex Rios, two hits and a walk.

If Bob Wickman is 240 pounds, I'm 110.

The real news came when we learned Ted Lilly will be skipped in the rotation the next time around, and he might not pitch Saturday. Who should pitch that game if he doesn't make it -- Walker, Scott Downs, or _____? Share your views on this, please.
