Unnamed administration sources say that the Rockies @ Nationals game will start an hour earlier this evening. No reason was given.
If you were one of the first 18,000 guests at Yankee Stadium today, you would have received a Lou Gehrig bobblehead.
I normally don't put much on a series in the first 1/2 of the season in general, but they have to do something here as they can't be expecting to beat Det in a short series with the pitchers that they would be counting on.
When a reliever gives up back to back walks, you have to pull him. Wilson had nothing today. Ridiculous.
"Jumbo Diaz" in for the Reds in the 9th. I've never heard of this guy, but what a great name! Harkening back to the first half of the 20th century...
Kike Hernandez hit his first major league home run in the Astros' loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.
It was a fifth-inning solo shot off Mariners starter Chris Young. Hernandez was raking this season in the Astros' minor league system and may be worth picking up in AL-only fantasy leagues. He can play multiple positions, so Houston should be able to find him playing time.
"Kike" is short for Enrique
Rick Sutcliffe just weighed in on the frequent over-shifts employed in today's baseball. He is 100% in favor of it and wishes that these types of shifts were used in his day.
The rotation's in generally very good shape. I'm pretty pleased with how things are going there. So... of course "starting pitching" will be the answer for today's...
HOW WILL THE ANGELS LOSE TODAY?
The New York Yankees made their presence felt with an international spending spree on Wednesday, the first day international free agents could sign with teams.
According to industry sources, New York agreed to terms with several highly regarded international prospects, including shortstop Dermis Garcia, ranked No. 1 on MLB.com's Top 30 International Prospects list for a $3 million signing bonus, along with Dominican third baseman Nelson Gomez (ranked No. 2) for $2.25 million, Dominican outfielder Juan DeLeon (No. 5) for $2 million, Venezuelan outfielders Jonathan Amundaray (No. 7) for $1.5 million and Antonio Arias (No. 9) for $800,000....
In the most severe penalty, teams that exceed the pool by more than 15 percent are not allowed to sign a player for more than $300,000 during the next two signing periods, in addition to paying a 100 percent tax on the pool overage.
Sac bunt, batter out 5 unassisted. Not sure I've ever seen that. Matt Carpenter vs. Giants -- charged in VERY aggressively, fielded the ball near the 1st base line, tagged the batter.
