Speaking of other teams, why is Ricky Nolasco awesome now?

Defense has been immensely better for him since leaving the Marlins.

BABIP and strand rate both significantly better with LA. BABIP is .255 in LA, strand rate is 80% (he was at .309 and 69% in Miami). Very Jeff Locke-esque.

Winning begets winning. Everything is easier when everyone around you is hitting on all cylinders.

Wasn't he an average pitcher? Then he joins the Dodgers and turns into a right-handed Kershaw? What happened?

He went to the Dodgers and started pitching in Chavez Revine. That's what happened.

Maybe nothing, but the magic words are in there and you know what that could mean...:

Strasburg scratched with 'forearm tightness'

:shock:

AL WC race:
A's beat Rangers 1-0
Red Sox beat Yankees 5-1
Blue Jays beat Orioles 4-3
Royals beat Tigers 1-0
Indians beat White Sox 8-1

Rays up 4-0 over Twins in a delay in the 4th


If this hold true, Cleveland moves to 1 game out, while the Rangers and Rays will be tied in the WC spots. Yankees drop to 2.5 games back, Orioles to 3. Royals move up to 3 back.


I find myself pulling for all the smaller markets/ tight budget teams left. Hoping to see some combination of A's, Rays, Tribe, Orioles, and Royals make it.

Milwaukee wins it with a walk-off HR in the 9th. Served up by Zach Duke.

AL WC:
Orioles defeat Blue Jays 3-1
Tigers defeat Royals 3-2
Twins defeat Rays 6-5
A's defeat Rangers 5-1
Indians defeat White Sox 7-1

Red Sox lead Yankees 5-1

Cleveland continues to climb. Rangers continue their tanking. Just need the Yankees to go away.

It's fun to contemplate the follow-up year Mike Trout is having.

To wit, he is on pace for:

.330 AVG
.437 OBP
.558 SLG
.995 OPS
25 home runs
36 stolen bases
109 walks
113 runs
197 hits
315 times on base

Lots of arbitrary numbers there, but no one has ever matched that particular stat line. No one.

If Mike Trout merely continues his production, with no improvements over the next 8 seasons or so, he'll go down as the 9th best hitter of all time.

In some regards, yes, small sample, but you're talking about a guy who turned 22 a little over a month ago and is 5 years out from his prime window.

He's nothing short of incredible, which is reinforced by his defense and baserunning.

Interesting take on the origins of baseball....

Quote:
There was no evidence Doubleday, who had died more than a decade before Graves wrote his letter, had ever played baseball, or had even been to Cooperstown. But with that testimony, he became the father of baseball. The tale scratched different itches than the rounders theory. Doubleday was an American Civil War hero, locating the game's origins on this side of the Atlantic. The tale had an Edenic neatness to it: And Abner said, let there be baselines … "We're a nation given to precision, sometimes inappropriate precision, about origins," said the writer George F. Will, who serves on Major League Baseball's new origins committee. "The idea that young Abner Doubleday wandered into Farmer Phinney's pasture in 1839 and that baseball sprang full blown from his brow is jolly fun. But I wish he'd done it closer to a major metropolitan area."

Kozma hit into a bases loaded, inning ending double play in the 15th and the Rockies win in the bottom of the inning. One game back!

Nice degrading loss for the Cards. 16 innings. Used 10 pitchers. And there was a play at the plate where the Cards missed the tag, the Rockie player missed the plate and the Cards catcher didn't react and the Rockie got back to the plate. SAFE! Cards blew a 1-run lead in the 8th. 1-run lead in the 9th.
