23.2 IP, 1 W, 0 L, 3 SV, 17 K, 1.52 ERA, 1.18 WHIP

That's my pitching line from yesterday between King Felix, Beachymania and new kid on the block Jarrod Parker. I didn't go up any points in the standings (my offense was real bad, left Altuve and J.D. on the bench !+) ) but that's as encouraging a day as I've had from my starters. Plus Jesus finally got his C eligibility!

No pitchers going today. Need some speed...that means you Pagan.

4/26 Cheering, Venting, and Bobby V's Cellphone

Postby Skin Blues » Thu Apr 26, 2012 10:30 am

Notes From Last Night:

An interesting night for closers. Pedro Strop picked up another save filling in for Jim Johnson who is battling flu-like symptoms, but there were other not-so-admirable performances.

  • Alfredo Aceves loaded the bases with a one-run lead but was able to retire Denard Span to preserve the win. More embarassing for the Red Sox was Bobby Valentine submitting a lineup under the assumption that Liam Hendriks throws lefthanded. He blamed the incident on his cellphone. It's good to see such thorough preparation by the most scrutinized manager in baseball.
  • Hector Santiago gave up 3 runs on 5 hits in the bottom of the 14th after his team scored 2 in the top half of the inning. Addison Reed pitched a scoreless 9th in a tie game, with two strikouts, and has yet to allow a run this season.
  • Javy Guerra took the loss for the second time in as many days, following in Hector Santiago's footsteps by allowing 5 hits and 3 runs while also only managing to get one out. Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless 8th for his 5th hold.
  • The Royals managed to end a 12 game losing streak with strong performances from Alex Gordon, Billy Butler, and Eric Hosmer who knocked in all 8 of their runs.
  • The Washington Nationals were able to move to 10 games over .500 but are without Ryan Zimmerman for the foreseeable future, as he suffers from a chronic case of Scott Rolen Disease. An MRI revealed no major damage, but he is unlikely to see any game action until mid-May.
  • Matt Kemp hit his 10th homerun of the young season, and Dee Gordon stole his 10th base. The sun also rose this morning.

Beat me to it. Rookie mistake taking too long to write it.

Anyway, gonna give it a go with Tomlin and Hutchison in my AL only. I figure I should get at least a win between the two of them, but I have a feeling that my ratios could be sore in the morning.

Solid write up. Next time you should just start the thread, maybe with just a smiley, and then you can come back in and edit.

At least that's what I always did last season.

Stanton is really bumming me out. I thought I got some power early by taking Votto in the 1st, Stanton in the 3rd, and Santana in the 5th. apparently not. I don't know if I can take another .600 OPS week.
