I have 2 at the moment:

1. The Twins are using BRAIN DUENSING as their 3rd SP over Slowey and Baker? Zomgz
2. And same game of that series, the Yankees are using Phil Hughes @ Yankee Stadium (instead of slotting him in Game 2) in what could be a crucial game?

Hughes @ home 2010: 106.1 IP, 20 HRs
Hughes away 2010: 70 IP, 6 HRs

Also

Hughes vs LHB 2010: 91 IP, 17 HR
Hughes vs RHB 2010: 85 IP, 8 HR

:-S

The reason is that they'd rather Pettitte start 2 games than Hughes especially against the Twins who have dangerous lefties like Mauer, so the Yankees are throwing lefties in 4 of the 5 games of the series.

Cliff Lee looked downright nasty. The same Lee I saw as a Phillies fan last season. If Wilson and Lewis show up, Texas could be very tough to beat.

So they're basically throwing one to get 4 LHP starts in? Makes sense.

No wonder CC was mediocre today, 3 of his last 4 starts were 110+ pitches (the other was 103).

The Braves have as their 4th SP a guy that's thrown 15 big league innings? Rollin' the dice :-°

if i was dusty i would've saved travis wood to start in one of the games. he's been pretty much money since coming up, it reminds me of phillies not starting happ last year.

Oh hey Roy Halladay...yeah pretty freaking good.

Main thought: how far can the arm of Tim Lincecum take the Giants? I can't see them winning any series where he doesn't win at least 2 games.

And how deep are they going to let him pitch tomorrow? Last start was 114 pitches :-?
Can't let G.Mota or someone similar pitch decisive innings

If Thome hit a homer there to tie the game, the state of New York would have stormed the commissioner's office. :-°

C.J Wilson vs James Shields should be one of the most interesting games of this round.
How much do either of them have left?
Wilson has pitched 130+ more innings then last year, and Shields has been absolutely destroyed over the last month, by craptastic SEA, KC and BAL :-?
Washington seems to have looked after Wilson a little, his last two games were 85 and 82 pitches.
