Wow. A leaguemate of mine just dropped Masterson. I know he is due for an ERA correction, but I am betting on his skills having improved this year. BB rate down, K rate up, HR rate down. I have #1 waiver and the best pitching in the league, but I am seriously thinking about putting in a claim for him... hmmmm.... I should probably just stay away.
Harper is on an absolute tear right now, it just hasnt stopped, but over his last 15 games
Bryce Harper had a career day for Single-A Hagerstown on Wednesday, going 4-for-5 with a grand slam. He also extended his hitting streak to 15 games, during which he's hitting .492. With a cumulative .396/.472/.712 batting line, Harper is matching or exceeding all expectations so far. May 12, 1:55 AM Source: MILB.com
anyone else notice that most of Dan Hudsons problems come when he's ahead in count on the batter? Granted ive only seen him pitch 3 times this yr, but i keep seeing the same pattern. he gets way ahead in the count, 0-2 or 1-2 then lays in a BP fastball right down the middle or a hanging slider with a HitMe sign taped to it.
Happend again today. Ross doubled, then Nate Shietholtz quickly goes to 0-2. Next pitch is a fastball belt-high, right down broadway that Schitholtz smashes into right center... Is he always bad at putting hitters away?
also Parra is having a LOL awesome inning... First he hits a blast to right center off the wall and Schierholtz makes a spectacular play to inexplicably throw him out at 2B. Then in the bottom half of the inning a routine fly ball is hit to center, Parra camps out under it... and just drops it. Goes for a 3 bag error and completey screws up Hudson's rythym
