Love the announcer quote during the game, "Can you imagine what Lance Berkman would've thought if you told him he'd wake up on May 14 batting .398 and not leading the NL in batting average?"

Highest Career OPS (min 75 PA):

1. Babe Ruth 1.164
2. Ted Williams1.116
3. Lou Gehrig 1.079
4. Micah Owings 1.056 (!!!!!!!)
5. Barry Bonds 1.051
6. Albert Pujols 1.041
7. Jimmie Foxx 1.037
8. Hank Greenberg 1.017
9. Geovany Soto 1.011 (OK Soto's is like .960 now, this stat is from May 9th)
9. Rogers Hornsby 1.011

Side Note - the second I pasted Soto's career OPS stat, he crushed a homer to center field. ;-D

The MLB is on Pace to hit 1000 fewer HR's this year than last year.

Mitchel Report? :-X



Steve Phillips has been making the radio rounds talking about this on ESPN. He fails to mention that only the AL is behind the pace, and quickly makes assumptions that the Mitchell Report is the reason. Irresponsible.

Steve Phillips is worthless, and a joke. If I become the worst at my job, would I become a TV person regarding what I sucked at?

Not that I'm some big fan of steve phillips but if we see 1000 less HR's, this year, the year after Mitchel's report, it makes no difference what league the shortage came from just that there is one. :-?

Make that 7 after today's game. 8-o

Also, gotta echo Cliff Lee's ERA. Who would've figured he the best pitcher on Cleveland's staff, let alone all of baseball. :-L

From USA Today:
From 2003 to 2006, an average of 136 players landed on the DL from spring training through April 30 each year. Last season, that number jumped to 168, a 24% increase. As of April 30, there were 181 players who spent time on the disabled list, another 8% jump.

Over the full season, a record 404 players hit the DL in 2007, 6% more than the previous high, 382 in 2004. This year's current pace would put 417 players on the shelf, another record.


Wonder how much this has to do with players not having that extra pharmaceutical help to prevent or lessen injuries? Also, don't think you'll see as many over 40 players thriving once baseball cleans up.
