It was great to see Merkin Valdez throwing in a game again. I didn't think his fastball was as overpowering as I remembered it, but it must have been moving or he was hitting his spots well. Besides....it's his frst appearance. After starting his first batter off with 3 straight balls, he came back strong to get 2 weak flyballs to LF and a groundball out. No hits, no walks, no K's. Stay healthy Merkin. The bullpen needs you.

Glad to see Valdez back on the mound. If healthy Valdez makes the bullpen much stronger and deeper.

I was at the game last season at Dodger stadium where he got a 2 inning spot start due to rain/lincecum factor...

He was F'n dominant!!
