lannan was solid in his start ... mock and martin were fine in saturday/sunday outings.

imo, an 8-game win streak is way too long for a fluke.

the rest of the season will determine whether it was a fluke or not. can they sustain this success?

If you remember last year we had a couple similar streaks to this one.

-In the beginning of August in '08 right after we traded for EB we won 4 in a row and 6 of 7. We then lost 12 games in a row.

-Then at the end of August we won 7 in a row and then finished off the season 6-17 over the last 23 games.

Every team in baseball, even the crappy ones, have a few nice winning streaks every season just because the sheer amount of games played.
