We're almost done with Dunedin.
Charlie Montoyo was taking some heat last night for sending Dolis out to close against the Red Sox. It was further evidence, in fact, that Montoyo has abandoned the traditional Slave to the Save approach of running a bullpen. The man who has been his best reliever (Chatwood) was called on to face the heart of the Boston lineup, the 2-3-4 hitters. His second best reliever (Romano) got the next shift, the 5-6-7 hitters. Both pitchers did their jobs perfectly, leaving the bottom of the order for Dolis, who's generally been as effective and as reliable as Chatwood and Romano.
Four games with the Devil Fishies, Friday and Saturday night, Sunday afternoon, and then a finale on Monday afternoon on the Queen Victoria holiday. The 24th isn't just Victoria's birthday - it was my mother's as well. And it will also be the 80th birthday of a Duluth-born singer who'd still be wandering the world like a rolling stone were it not for this pesky pandemic. How does it feel?
