Monday night at AT&T notes

Quick Notes from last nights game. My phone was down, so i couldn't upload directly from the park.

Randy Johnson looked good. Right now, he's on the every other start routine, meaning this saturday might not go so well. As for last night, with the exception of 1...no 2...actually mistake pitches that were launched for solo homeruns, he looked sharp. He didn't fall apart until after spending an excess amount of time walking around the bases. I see him being a 5-6 inning starter all year so bullpen beware.

Emmanuel Burriss is the real deal. He batted leadoff for the first time and didn't get a hit,but did draw an important walk. No, I'm not talking about his hitting. Burriss defense is spectacular. He plays second base like veteran. He has a cannon for an arm and one of the quickest releases i've ever seen. His double play turn is improving quickly and he has plus range. I always wanted to see him as the everyday SS, but if he keeps this up,he's not going anywhere. Stay tuned because his hitting is coming. I think Kevin Frandsen needs to find another position in a hurry.

Randy Winn looks like he is heating up.His stroke looks good and his confidence is up. He's a very consistent hitter so this may be the end of possibly his only real slump this year.

Fred Lewis needs a day off. Maybe 3... Expect to see Schierholtz in the next game.

Travis Ishikawa had an outstanding game.I'm not sure whats better, seeing him come out of his slump,or that over the railing catch down the line.

And last but not least, the Giants won that game based on capitalizing Nationals mistakes. They took walks,HBP, WP's,and Errors...It's amazing how far solid defense & pitching really will get you
