You could argue Mike Minor threw a slightly better game yesterday and deserved the lede, but you’d be arguing with a computer screen and over what should be the lede on a fantasy baseball blog.  It’s about time I gave Gio Gonzalez (7 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 9 Ks) some love after emoting all over myself in the preseason about how much I wanted Gio on every team.   Please, blog, may I have some more?

Adam Eaton went 2-for-6 with a run yesterday as the Diamondbacks called up their outfield prospect, and hit him leadoff.  The move is to fill in for Krispie, who’s out with a sore quad.  Krispie could return (he won’t go to the DL because with 40-man rosters, there’s no need to), but Eaton’s not coming up to play in one game a week.   Please, blog, may I have some more?

Reds announced that Joey Votto is able to return.  Crickets, pin dropping, echo…echo…echo… “God?  It’s me, Dusty Baker.  If I need him, is Votto ready to pitch?”  “I’m afraid not, Dusty.  He’s not a pitcher.”  “In the traditional sense?”  “In every sense.”  “How about as a reliever?”  “No, Dusty.”  “As a LOOGY?”  “Fine, Dusty.”  “Thanks!   Please, blog, may I have some more?

There’s some strong indications that Shelby Miller could be called up by the Cards when the rosters expand on September 1st.  “Why should we care about some stunod with a 4.89 ERA in Triple-A?  Hey, Grey, we care about stunods now?”  That’s you talking to yourself just as a pretty girl walks by and thinks you’re crazy for talking to yourself.   Please, blog, may I have some more?

Holy waiver wire! In a season full of devastating losses for the Boston Red Sox, Thursday’s 14-13 extra inning defeat ranks up there as 2012’s most devastatingest. After Alfredo Aceves blew the lead, giving up 5 ER on 6 hits including 2 home runs, the Sox star “slugger” Adrian Gonzalez struck out with a man on base to end the game.

Yesterday, Alex Cobb threw a 4-hit, 2-walk shutout with 8 Ks vs. the A’s.  Cy Cobb?  Nah, probably not.  Last night though, pretty.  Let’s look it how The Tampa Bay Peach got where he is.  Earlier this year, The Tampa Bay Peach hit that sweet spot, deciduously ready and he dropped to the ground, rolled about sixteen feet into the River Styx as “Come Sail Away” was playing in the background.   Please, blog, may I have some more?
