Was it just me or did Bennett pack back on some of that weight that was so famously lost last year? That was troubling to me because last year he gave most of the credit for his success to his new diet that allowed him to be more effective for longer. If he was right then that might explain why he didn't look too hot in ST and shaky again last night. I hope his new rolls don't become a liability.
O'Flaherty is right up there with JJ for the Player of the Game for me. JJ had a great start to the season (though I think the wind could also get some player of the game votes) but Eric O came in at a crucial time in the ballgame and pitched a great 1 1/3 for us. Not only was it crucial because the Philly offense was threatening but also because this was the point in the game last year where they had a huge inning or two and came out on top. He shut them down. Hopefully he can build on this and prove some of the skeptics (including myself) wrong.
