Two nice post-game finds over at DMag:
This: Mike Hindman has some great post-game quotes up over at DMag:
Reliever C.J. Wilson continued: “[Millwood] was an ace today. He was tenacious. He just went after guys, worked inside, utilized the deer-like foot speed of Elvis and challenged hitters."
Said Millwood: I’ve played with some really great shortstops in my day — [Rafael] Furcal, [Jimmy] Rollins and Mike [Young]. What this kid can already do is up there with anybody and it’s pretty exciting to be around.”
CJ's is funny, really, even if true, as it is a bit of a mixed metaphor...or something. And Millwood's is hyperbolic, even if true, but when have you heard anything remotely appraching that kind of praise for the defensive prowess of any of our middle-infielders in the last 5 years or so? I'll take it.
And This, a nicely scripted piece about Elvis' first day by Jeff Miller.
