I would feel good about that group.

Throw in a 3 K save from Uehera and I'm sitting on 27.2 IP, 1.95 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, 20 Ks, 1 W and Hudson still going.

I also have Kazmir, Zimmermann, and Uehara! ;-D Kazmir's velocity on his fastball was as low as 86 mph today after reaching 96 last week. Mostly in the 88-91 mph zone though. I've been hyping Kazmir up big time, but I would feel better if he stays above 90 lol.


On the other hand, Jose Valverde sucks. At least I have Justin Upton.

Also, Bryce Harper was pulled for a lack of hustle today. I wonder if that's quad related.

Early reports show that Matt Williams is a dumb dumb.

Watching the replay it was a bouncer right back to the pitcher that every player in the majors jogs for. Matt Williams can't be serious.

The next time Harper hits one of those he should take off like a rabbit and fake pulling up lame and watch Williams have a heart attack. :-D

Especially a player that has been dealing with a quad injury. I would have been more upset if he did run it out. Beyond stupid to pull him for that.

I always get mixed signals when it comes to Harper. Many people say he plays too hard and that he injures himself unnecessarily because of it. Now he jogs on bounce to the pitcher and gets pulled for "lack of hustle".... Do they want him to ever play the game healthy?

Anybody else taking a chance on Ike Davis now with the change of scenery? Dropped Nava (been absolutely brutal) now that he's looking AAA bound on Victorino's return. Might be just crazy enough to work. Ike is streaky, but that second half in 2012 or something comparable, would be nice.
