Konnichiwa.

Games:

Kansas City (J Francis) @ Baltimore (J Guthrie)

Cincinnati (H Bailey) @ Philadelphia (C Lee)

Boston (A Aceves) @ Detroit (M Scherzer)

NY Mets (R Dickey) @ Chicago Cubs (C Zambrano)

Oakland (B Anderson) @ LA Angels (J Pineiro)

Florida (A Sanchez) @ San Francisco (R Vogelsong)

Chicago WSOX (P Humber) @ Toronto (B Morrow)

Arizona (M Owings) @ Colorado (C Mortensen)



Need help deciding on SP sit/start?

Top 5 runs scored:
1. STL 249
2. CIN 246
3. NYY 243
4. CLE 233
5. TOR 219

Bottom 5 runs scored:

30. MIN 164
30. SF 164
28. SD 168
26. PIT 173
26. SEA 173


On this day (26 May):
1912: A bad man gets traded. Chick Gandil, infamous ringleader of the 1919 Black Sox, is traded from Montreal (of the International League) to Washington. He went on to place 11th in the MVP voting that year, with an astounding 2 HRs and 19 steals (caught stealing 17 times).

Also.......(25 May)
1984: A million horrors are on their way for a generation of Red Sox fans, as the Sox trade Dennis Eckersley and Mike Brumley for......wait for it........Bill Buckner. (Lightning flashes, wolves howl)
1989: The Montreal Expos trade Gene Harris, Brian Holman and (WHOOPS) Randy Johnson for Mark Langston and PTBNL. Langston threw 176 (quite good) innings for Montreal, then departed as a free agent. RJ threw 1838 (mostly epic) innings for Seattle.


And now for a band I grew up on, one of the true greats...............

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide.
No escape from reality.

Was originally planning on starting Lee only. After seeing the phils and reds go at it for 19 innings, I've decided to start both Lee & Bailey.

Also can't decide to start Scherzer after watching the redsox put up 14 runs yesterday. :-o

Do you mean the landslide of points I'm about to gain? :-D
Or the landslide of offers for Utley (about to hit the market)? ;-7

Jordan Lyles, Astros: Lyles is Houston’s top prospect, at least according to our own Marc Hulet. Lyles isn’t anything spectacular, but he has a decent arsenal and has consistently posted FIPs in the 3s throughout his minor league career. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Lyles up in the big leagues within a month or two, as the Astros need to take a look and see what they have long term with this guy. He won’t be great when he first comes up, but he could be a NL spot starter, at the very least.

Lyles, a name I only recognized because of OOTP :-D (Brantley, Rizzo, Jesus Montero, and probably a few others also fall in that category).


Also officially hate this poll as Bad Moon Rising is stuck in my head now

After 19 innings last night, I feel a bit better about trotting Homer Bailey out @ Phi tonight... it'll probably end poorly :-C

I gotta start Morrow against Chicago, even though he's been struggling. Chicago sucks. Mighty Max against Boston...still on the fence. But I'm not asking for any haiku opinions about that one, since you all made me sit IPK yesterday :-C
