5/19-5/20 Cheering, Venting, & Country Breakfast

Postby bigh0rt » Sat May 19, 2012 10:21 am

News, Notes, & Nonsense:

- Justin Verlander was nearly perfect, throwing a 1-hit, 2-walk, 12 strikeout shutout in a 6 - 0 win against the Pirates.

- Kevin Milwood was nearly as impressive with his own 2-hit, 1-walk, 9 strikeout complete game shutout. Not a typo. Kevin Milwood really did that.

- Andrew Eugene Pettitte was unavailable to testify in any court hearings on Friday, because he was busy shutting out the Reds over 8 innings of work. Yankee fans are anxious to see which Pettitte shows up more often this season: last night's Ace, or the mediocre version who pitched against the Mariners last week. I can only hope for the latter.

- Billy 'Country Breakfast' Butler slapped his 7th dong of the season last night. In 2011 he didn't belt his 7th homer until July 22nd. Those hoping for a breakout power year from Butler may be getting what they bargained for this season.

- J.P. Arencabia has now gone deep 4 times in his last 3 games, including twice against the Mets yesterday in a 14 - 5 drubbing where teammate Rajai Davis also left the park a pair of times. 'Sticky' Ricky Romero threw 6 innings of 1-run ball in the Win.

- Mike Trout stayed red hot, swiping his 4th base and going 3/4 chipping in both a Run and RBI. Trout has been liquid hot magma for the better part of the last 2 weeks and is yielding his patient owners with a huge early reward.

- Delmon Young took a brief break from being terrible to hit a homer, while Ryan Braun sent his 11th of the season into the stratosphere.

Hoping Dempster can get his first win today, since he is facing Danks.

I'm also interested in seeing how Cobb looks.

What the hell happened to Danks this year? I haven't been following him or the White Sox at all.

Chris Davis still has more wins than Ryan Dempster, who has the second best ERA in the majors. LOL.

Morrow is now leading the league in ERA. Also has 42 Ks in 34 IP over his last 5 starts while allowing a total of 2 ER. Hate seeing him go out there every 5 days though, because he's so inconsistent. What use is there for an elite pitcher that can't throw a shutout every game?

Morrow... :-t

Figures I run into the buzzsaw of the team with Prince, Doc, Holliday, and Morrow. First loss of the season. I suppose, getting it all out in one week is ok. On the other hand, a 20-8 drubbing so far is NOT fun... :-t
