Actually, I like to see Donald Trump buy the property in which Osama was killed, and put up a skyscaper with casino and everything ....
USA! USA! USA!
With that said, lets look at some thread filler type stuff and pretend other news matters.
Kim Bhasin: Roto Medic: Hill hurt his hamstring on April 19 and appears on track to come back in early May, but there may be deeper problems for him. He had tests on his hammy Sunday and he’s still feeling tightness. The last thing he and the Blue Jays want is a lingering hammy problem, and it certainly doesn’t help that it’s the same hamstring that Hill battled with last year. A separate concern is Hill’s slow start. It’s evident that he’ll never reach the monster numbers he put up in 2009 — both in power and average, but there’s still some value here.
MLBTR: Many Rule 5 picks ultimately return to their original organizations, as it's not easy to keep inexperienced players in the Major Leagues all season long. So far, 2011 is no exception; 8 of the 19 players selected in the Major League phase of last offseason's Rule 5 draft are back where they started. Here are updates on the draftees, four weeks into the season:
sell highChris Jaffe:
* 8,000 days since Tom Glavine tossed a complete-game shutout despite fanning no batters. It’s only happened seven times since then, most recently in 2002 to Scott Erickson.
* 9,000 days since Eric Davis hit three homers in one game
* 9,000 days since the Detroit Tigers swatted four homers in the sixth inning
* 1939 Lou Gehrig rests, ending his streak and with it his career.
* 1954 Stan Musial has a performance for the ages. He hits three home runs in the first game of a doubleheader, and then two more in the nightcap. Five homers in a day is a record shared with others. In the first game, he also singled, giving him a career-high 13 total bases in one game.
* 1964 Twins hit four homers in the eleventh inning—all in a row, too.
* 2002 Mike Cameron hits four home runs against White Sox. He and Bret Boone both bash two homers apiece in the first inning. They’re both back-to-back homers, too. All Cameron’s home runs came in his first four times to the plate. In his fifth time up, he had a 3-0 count, but didn’t swing on the next pitch. He didn’t want to press himself, just take it nice and normally.
* 2002 Sammy Sosa homers twice in a game for the second straight day
finallyChris Young shut out the Phillies for seven innings and struck out seven in a no-decision Sunday
questionable is an understatement. It was hit right to loser Brad Hawpe at first, and loser Brad Hawpe kicked it, twice. What a loser.Dustin Moseley dealt seven innings of shutout ball against the Dodgers Sunday to earn his first win of the season
bustAndre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 27 games with a questionable single seventh inning Sunday
Drew Stubbs went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Marlins
sweet!A preliminary chest X-ray on Carlos Lee showed no fractures
if you wanna talk about control struggles, you should see his fantasy owners reactions right about now.Nationals manager Jim Riggleman has refrained from naming an exclusive closer, he hinted Sunday that Drew Storen is closing in on that title.
Think he goes into the HOF as a DodgerUbaldo's control struggles pop up again, walking four batters and uncorking three wild pitches in a loss to the Pirates
So much for stashing him on the DL. now he gets that ugly NAIn an interview with the Associated Press, Pedro Martinez virtually ruled out a return to the major leagues and said he will likely retire.
thats my boyThe Phillies have activated Domonic Brown (hand surgery) from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, according to MLB.com
imagine if the mariners were good. 25 wins?!?!?
slowly but surely he will be fantasy relevant.Like he did so often during his Cy Young award-winning campaign last season, Felix Hernandez pitched well in a Mariners loss on Sunday, holding the Red Sox to six hits and two runs while striking out 10 in seven innings
Matt LaPorta's sacrifice fly drove in what proved to be the game-winning run in the Indians' 5-4 win over the Tigers on Sunday
