Serving up fastballs down the heart of the plate and giving up a solo homer isn't a problem with a five run lead. However, there might be a problem if he had also walked the bases loaded, like Koch. That would show that he has no command and gets rattled easily. He shut the Mets down after those two hits.
Mantei is still a head case and it could take a while for him to get his confidence back (at least 3 solid outings in a row). Villareal just went on the DL. Valverde's job is safe for now despite giving up a HR last night.
"Girl, you look so good, someone ought to put you on a plate and sop you up with a biscuit!"
