He is a tad wild, I will admit, but he seems to be getting the point that with 3 balls he can just throw his 99-100 right down the middle and guys can't hit it and he has a great changeup. Two starts in, I think he could be one of the big breakout stars this year and put up some really strong numbers.

Agreed, his ceiling is sky high.

Tabata probably headed to the DL with a concussion. Does Polanco get a call or do the Pirates go with Travis Snider?

I hope Polanco but I'm thinking Snider.

Bryce Harper was scratched from the lineup due to his stupid quad injury. :-C

I don't ever want to see Jose Valverde in a game unless it's a save opportunity...

Anyone trying to buy low on Justin Masterson? I was thinking of trying to get him. Will he bounce back?
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Hanley took a pitch off the hand. Something has to be broken based on his reactions with the trainer.

One of those 3 votes for who is going to win the AL East - Yankees, is from me. For the record.

They have the best Starting pitching in the division, now with Matt Moore and Cobb out for a while. Tanaka looks great so far and Pineda looks like he's come back all the way. Kuroda is ever-underrated. Yeah CC hasn't looked that hot. The Yanks need to put him on a strict pitch count. Still great starting pitching and their lineup is underrated.

Yes, their pitching is solid, but their hitters are so old that half their payroll is banked by arthritis medicine stock, and they've been known to nod off between innings. :-D
