The faces change, but the winning seems to stay the same. Which makes it all the more curious that Coach Mike Martin continues to tinker with his rotation, pitching Ryan Strauss third one day, second the next, and now he's out, with Michael Hyde slated to return to the rotation.
on that note, we celebrate the consistency of two players. Bryan Henry has been the ace of the club for over two years now, and Tony Thomas Jr has evolved this season into one of the best players in the game.
