yesterday was a big day for the defending champion Hot Stove Red Sox 24/54 (that's .444) 16 R, 6 HR, 19 RBI, 3 SB to jump up 16.5 points. That's why we stay the course after a rough April.
i was wondering if you were going to say something. nice friggin day


Yeah, what's up with these huge days lately? COL had a similar day two days ago. I'm patiently waiting my turn. :-D

I have no SPs starting today or tomorrow, although I am tempted to pick up Dillon Gee for tomorrow. Probably a bad idea. :*)

maybe he wasn't that bad... maybe we're just witnessing the beginning of the power surge from the offensively proficient Fathers...

Josh Shepardson: The expected heir apparent to Carl Crawford in Tampa, Desmond Jennings has continued to showcase why he is considered an upper echelon prospect and a person of interest in fantasy circles.




Probably 275/5/40 type of guy with superb defense. Crawford lite with less homers but possibly a little better OBP due to him being able to take a walk.

Harper is on an absolute tear right now, it just hasnt stopped, but over his last 15 games

Bryce Harper had a career day for Single-A Hagerstown on Wednesday, going 4-for-5 with a grand slam.
He also extended his hitting streak to 15 games, during which he's hitting .492. With a cumulative .396/.472/.712 batting line, Harper is matching or exceeding all expectations so far. May 12, 1:55 AM

Shields just won't quit.


7 IP 7 K 1.14 WHIP and a potential win. I am definitely going to try and sell high now though, I just don't believe a lifetime above average guy is now an unstoppable ace.

anyone else notice that most of Dan Hudsons problems come when he's ahead in count on the batter?
Granted ive only seen him pitch 3 times this yr, but i keep seeing the same pattern.
he gets way ahead in the count, 0-2 or 1-2 then lays in a BP fastball right down the middle or a hanging slider with a HitMe sign taped to it.

Happend again today. Ross doubled, then Nate Shietholtz quickly goes to 0-2. Next pitch is a fastball belt-high, right down broadway that Schitholtz smashes into right center... Is he always bad at putting hitters away?

also Parra is having a LOL awesome inning...
First he hits a blast to right center off the wall and Schierholtz makes a spectacular play to inexplicably throw him out at 2B.
Then in the bottom half of the inning a routine fly ball is hit to center, Parra camps out under it... and just drops it. Goes for a 3 bag error and completey screws up Hudson's rythym

It's not Bonds or Clemens taking media stigmatized steroids, so people won't care about that kind of performance enhancement in baseball.

Reminds me of Phil "Franchise" Hughes last year. Even when he was going well, he had to let the hitter foul off like 6 pitches before he put him away.
