Despite last night’s theatrics, Kevin Brown’s stiff back is a problem that’s looking more and more serious. Our cure: Ben Gay—we know it stinks everything up, but this is no time to be squeemish—and plenty of Motrin. That or Freddy Garcia. As it stands, if you take out all those games against the DRays (4 of his 7 wins) his era’s nearing a Weaveresque 5.00.
