Ramon Hernandez Placed on DL. Wilin Rosario Becomes Starting Rockies Catcher

The Rockies have placed Ramon Hernandez on the 15-day DL with a hand strain, opening the door for power hitting Wilin Rosario to take over the daily catching duties in Colorado. Rosario has six home runs in just 78 plate appearances in 2012, making him an interesting waiver ad for owners looking for some cheap power from the catcher position. It is important to note that Rosario’s...

The Rockies’ Wretched Pitching

Since starting the season with a 12-12 record, the Rockies have lost 15 of their past 19 games. During this free-fall, the team has experienced a five, four and a six-game losing streak. Now, after 43 games, the team’s 16-27 record is tied for the third-worst in the franchise’s history. Needless to say, it’s been a bad stretch of baseball. And sadly, it was one that was all...

Betting BIG against Grandpa Moyer

Record 24-30 Bank Account -168 Padres at Mets - Johan Santana dominated the hitless Pads yesterday and I expect the underrated R.A. Dickey to continue the dominance. Dickey is 4-0 with a 2.48 ERA in his last four starts. Edinson Volquez takes the hill for the Pads as the pitcher with the least amount of run support in the majors at 1.82 runs per game. Volquez is also 0-2 with...

Stanton took Giants ace Tim Lincecum deep in the fourth inning of Friday night's game, becoming...

Todd Frazier literally throws his bat at the ball, homers

A common baseball adage is throw [the barrel of] your bat at the ball. Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier took that to heart on Sunday while facing the soft-tossing, 49-year-old lefty Jamie Moyer. With the bases empty and one out in the bottom of the fourth inning, Frazier waited back on a 72 mph changeup and then turned on it for his fifth home run of the season and the...

Best and Worst, with Stats

It started this morning. Checking out a few things on leaderboards, I noticed that Jamie Moyer, a personal favorite, had an unsightly 1.75 WHIP. Yet, his BB/9 was a better than average 3.14. Naturally, his H/9 was going to be bad. How bad? The worst among ERA qualifiers: 12.6 H/9 ip. Checking to see what score lead the category in this young season, I saw Gio Gonzalez leads the league...
