Game Notes: "Cueto dealt a three-hit shutout with no walks and 12 strikeouts to beat Liriano and the Pirates on Wednesday by a 4-0 score. Lifetime against Pittsburgh, he is 15-7 with a 2.22 ERA over 22 games -- including a 1.90 ERA over 13 games at PNC Park... Volquez, who pitched for the Reds from 2008-11 and won 17 games during his first season with the club, was an 11-2 winner over the Brewers on Saturday. He allowed two earned runs and eight hits over seven innings with one walk and three strikeouts."
Game Notes: Big Game James.
Game Notes: This matchup sounds like a knock of The Voice, performed exclusively at the CMA's.
Game Notes: The OMNICHATTER anti-matchup of the day.
Game Notes: "The anticipated matchup between Detroit's Justin Verlander and Chicago's Chris Sale will not come to fruition. A flexor muscle strain landed Sale on the disabled list, general manager Rick Hahn announced after Monday's 3-1 White Sox victory... In his spot, Charlie Leesman will oppose Verlander, who labored in his last start, lasting just five innings after throwing 113 pitches... Leesman is 0-2 with a 1.59 ERA in three starts with Triple-A Charlotte this season. He has made just one big league start, throwing five innings of one-run ball last season against the Twins."
Game Notes: Wood is coming off of his longest outing of the year, 100+ pitches taking him into the 8th in Philly. Brian McCann is not around to keep Jose Fernandez in line if he connects again.
Game Notes: Adam Wainwright against the Mets' lineup. Your OMNICHATTER best chance of a no-hitter.
Game Notes: "An interesting element of Price going against the Twins is their hitters lead the American League in walks, and Price pounds the strike zone... Gibson pitched eight shutout innings against the Blue Jays in Thursday's 7-0 Twins win, displaying dominating stuff in the process. He now has a 0.93 ERA... Gibson stands 6-foot-6, and a big part of his success can be attributed to his fastball. Though it clocks in in the low 90s, Gibson's fastball has a lot of sinking and darting movement."
Game Notes: A nice matchup that will obviously have Bristol wetting themselves. Game likely to last six and a half hours.
Game Notes: "Righty Collin McHugh will make his season debut for Houston on Tuesday. McHugh was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday to replace starter Scott Feldman, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with biceps tendinitis after a strong start to the year... McHugh was scheduled to follow Nick Tropeano in Triple-A Oklahoma City's tandem starter rotation Monday. Instead, he'll head to Seattle to face a Mariners offense that has been trending downward for the last week. McHugh threw Thursday in Colorado Springs and allowed one run on three hits with no walks and three strikeouts in five innings... Astros manager Bo Porter said McHugh has built up his pitch count to 85, so he expects to use a long reliever Tuesday, though the way the Mariners' offense has performed lately, it might not be necessary."
We were all puzzled by why there was no Maholm market this winter.
Reminds me of Tommy Hanson last winter. I was puzzled why such a good pitcher would be traded for a middling reliever.
The Yankees/Red Sox game is a great pitching matchup. Tanaka has been so much better than I thought he would be, but it's been against second-rate teams or worse. If he can do it again against the Red Sox, it starts to get really exciting.
I used to get Volquez and Cueto confused, because I am a huge racist.
Tanaka has been so much better than I thought he would be
Parents, stop giving your boys ridiculous last names as first names. Just stop. It's all been done and we are sick of it.
Yet I am annoyed by "Tanner" and "Hunter" and "Tucker".

"Tyler" and "Taylor" sound like normal names to me.
Volquez, who pitched for the Reds from 2008-11 and won 17 games during his first season with the club, was an 11-2 winner over the Brewers on Saturday.
Also, Lester is pitching better than ever. #freeagentyear
I think they made a mechanical adjustment with his delivery as his control looked a lot better. that and he just looked smoother on the mound.
Pujols has already had a 10-game hitting streak and a 5- game hitting streak in the first 17 games of the season. I don't expect .330, but .300 is a good bet. A Good Albert would be very nice to finally have in the fold.
So how many more 14-11, 220 IP, 117+ ERA seasons does Mark Buehrle have to rack up before he's a legit Hall of Fame candidate? Fewer than 10?

Has Jay taken ownership of CF?
Albert gets 500! Second of the night, eighth of the season!
30 hr a year average puts him right with Ruth.
That'll be easy!
(But, no, awesome for Albert and his fans.)
The Nats crowd gave Pujols a very nice, respectful standing ovation after 500. Classy.
Maybe someone can explain BB-Reference's SRS number to me. According to what I'm seeing, the 6-12 last place Cubs are supposedly better than every team in the AL East!
