Jake Diekman of the Philadelphia Phillies is getting closer to the friendly confines. Where is he on the ladder to the Bank? Can we expect Phillippe Aumont?

The crowd cheers "Freddy! Freddy! Freddy!". Blogs chart the awesomeness of his defense and improvement at the plate since his 0-12 start. Me, I roll my eyes and wonder what the hell the big deal is.Batting Average - .194 On Base % - .229 Slugging % - .299 OPS - .527 No amount of defensive wizardry can make up for that. That's not good. That's not okay....
Here we figured all these years that Jim Thome spent his winters in a double wide in Peoria, IL and scraped by because he was an Every Man. We’ve been lied to by broadcasters who’ve given Thome his Paul Bunyan mystique, yet the guy is now living in a house with his & hers showers. Just look at that bathroom. Never seen a double wide with marble floors before. We’ve had...
Roy Halladay and the aces of the Philadelphia Phillies are living up to their billing, but not all other hyped staffs are. The experts say pitching continues to be the dominant force, but are they relying on easy numbers? Is it worth watching a national baseball broadcast to hear surface-oriented information? Facts are like an iceberg: Most of it is below the visible line.
Joe Blanton alert! I have won a good chunk of coin simply betting against this guy anytime he pitches. I am so anti-Blanton I am taking the Cubs +135 on the road. Hopefully, Blanton doesn't find some magic like Matusz did earlier in the week.
Give me Timmy Ballgame and his career ERA of 1.96 against the Pads who are hitting .213 as a team. Pretty sad times when Nick Hundley...
