He was taken out quickly because he had thrown 100 pitches. Like I said, the damage was limited. The problem is when he hits that road bump in the 3rd or 4th inning and doesn't get a quick hook. Those were the games that I remember 8 ER where he just can't get through.

Has his ERA down to 3.03 despite facing TEX, DETx2, and BOS in 4 of his 6 starts. his worst start actually came against the orioles. Also 37 Ks to 11 BBs in 38.2 innings. good stuff.


I had Danks and Floyd as bargains this year and there is no reason that they are pitching differently.


I have Floyd on all three of my teams. He was due for an ERA correction and I figured that he could even be in for a career type year. Severely underrated going into this year.

I missed out on drafting Floyd, but wish I did. Made a bunch of offers in all my leagues after the bad game against Baltimore, but no takers... did the same for Mike Minor and luckily nobody accepted those ones, either :-D

And Beltre comes through for me. I don't own him at all, but I have Ogando and Nathan.

All 5 games are tied right now through at least 5 innings... o/u on 3.5 blown saves from here on out?

Garza out tomorrow because he's sick. That's a blow to my H2H team since I'm a little behind. TWood to take his turn.

Save situation in Miami. Cishek obviously won't get the chance due to throwing 3 innings yesterday. Will Buehrle finish it or Mujica?

Peralta takes another Loss and Balfour converts the Save Op throwing 14 pitches.

The Angels finally got a HR out of their fist baseman. It took $500,000 man Mark Trumbo to do it, after the $240,000,000 man (financial equivalent of 480 seasons of Mark Trumbo, LOL) was given the day off.
