Justin Upton heads to the DL with an oblique injury. For those reading, who just got out of a time machine from the 80s, no one has any idea what an oblique is. And stop wearing Cavariccis. Upton will probably be out more than the required 15 days, because these oblique injuries that no one […]Please, blog, may I have some more?

I went over 13 pitchers in May that should be better according to their FIP. Some of those pitchers on the list who weren’t doing great that have since turned it around are Nolasco, Floyd, Verlander, Lincecum, Lester, Beckett, Javier Vazquez and Ubaldo. 8 of 13. Two other pitchers were Randy Johnson and Gil Meche. […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
J.A. Happ threw a complete game shutout yesterday with only 6 baserunners and 10 Ks vs. Jorge de la Rosa’s 5 IP, 7 ER, 3 Ks line. I pretty much saw this matchup going almost exactly opposite. Maybe I had my contacts in backwards. dlR had won seven games in a row. Happ was coming […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
This past week was craaaaazy (yes, that is six, count them, six A’s) in all things baseball!!! The Pirates loaded up for the future, though this is nothing new, and stole Alderson from the Giants for a measly Sanchez (no sexual reference intended). Desmond Jennings got a promotion to AAA. Carlos Carrasco has a new […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sorry, but I’m going to open the vent for a millisecond. Let’s go back to Stupid May Grey. I was a point or two in front in one of my leagues, had a solid outfield of Adam Dunn, Carlos Quentin/Beltran and Rasmus. I was within striking distance in steals and the news just came out […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been over a month since we took a look at some pitchers who are pitching over their heads. Last time, we saw Cueto, Porcello, Millwood, Saunders, Lilly, Cahill and Gallardo were due for a correction. Since then, they’ve had Liquid Paper dumped all over their stats. Also, on that list were Matt Cain, Zach […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Chris Tillman‘s line yesterday was nothing to sneeze at — 6 IP, 5 ER, 10 baserunners — more like gag. Sometimes it takes one to get roofied before you fully understand what rookie pitchers can do to you. I point the rookie pitchers out. They have upside — hey, look at Happ, he’s been good […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s good to be past the trading deadline. The closers that kept their job feel woobie-safe. Pull down the Murphy bed, Qualls is here to stay! You might be right, random italicized voice. Don’t forget, closers still find a way to lose their job. In the past week, Downs is down, Jenks looks jenky, Frank-Frank […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Corey Hart is out for up to a month with an appendectomy. My college roommate had an appendectomy and he returned from the hospital in 24 hours and back to drinking Olde E forties with me by Friday, which is what we called Tuesday. Bill Hall will be recalled (Score one for NL pitchers) and […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Lastings Milledge is about to get called up by the Pirates (We’re not your Pops’ Pirates!) and he should get playing time. Shoot, I could prolly get playing time with the Pirates. Is this still the head case that the Mets and Nats gave up on? Sure. Luckily, the rap scene in Pittsburgh is about […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
