Nice to see some pitchers are in mid-season form already...

ST stats are meaningless, but nevertheless, the overhype and/or the ever vigilant apologist crew can start the spinning on these "noteable"/dubious draft selections:

Javier Vazquel was roughed up by the White Sox today, allowing nine runs in five innings.
Vazquez's stuff was fine, but he left far too many pitches up. ''Actually, I felt stronger today than ever,'' Vazquez said. ''Maybe I felt too strong and I wanted to throw the ball by everybody or something.'' He'll carry a 6.66 ERA into his Opening Day start.

Brown...a 5.96 ERA this Spring...yes why wouldn't you sit Wright instead.

Jose Contreras...7.11 ERA (but everyone knows he stinks so not such news).

Ryan Dempster has a stunning 11.2 ERA

Dotel an 8.31 going into today.

Cliff Lee has an 8 ERA

Victor Zambrano a 7.62 ERA

G. Rusch has a 9.00 ERA should be noted that Chan Ho Park is competitive with his 6.29 ERA. Only K. Brown has had a better SPring of those listed above.

Off that menu, I'll have some Vazquez, Dotel, and just a small side of Brown. Not too interested in the others.

Oh, almost RJ in the kitchen tonight? Pigeon for desert please.

Yanks it's too bad you are perpetually vindictive and negative towards almost everything in your posts, because you're an informative guy without it.

Add the highly underrated Livan Hernandez to the list of guys that are truly in midseason form. From CBS-Livan Hernandez, SP WAS

News: Livan Hernandez worked eight innings in Wednesday's spring game against Atlanta, allowing only one earned run and six hits. He also struck out six batters.

Analysis: Hernandez has worked 14 innings over his past two starts and declared himself ready to roll for the regular season opener on April 4 at Philadelphia
