Mr. Casey Daigle 

Let's stop calling him Mr. Jennie Finch for now, folks. OK, after his first game against the Cardinals, I could understand the derision. But as I pointed out last week, his ERA by game went from 27.00 to 13.50 to 3.86 to, now, 0.00. Looks like next week he'll throw in a no-hitter and hit a grand slam for good measure. Let's keep in mind, too, that these ERAs came against 3 of the 4 teams ahead of the Diamondbacks in NL OPS. It's not like he was pitching to the Expos.

OK, obviously it's just as silly to project out future success based on 5 2/3 innings of shutout ball as it is to project out a one-way trip to Tucson based on a one-game 27.00 ERA. But perhaps Casey has settled into life here and may make a passable 4th starter this season.
