    Hughes has shown with 6 of his last 7 (especially the last 2) starts since coming off the DL that he deserves a spot in the starting rotation for the Yankees. And when he takes the mound on the 18th of August against the Twins he will give the Yankees no alternative but to move AJ to the pen. Hughes is part of the Yankees future, AJ is not. At least that’s my opinion.

    To use and credit Chris F.’s nickname for Ryan Howard, Mr. Lucky still remains lucky. Another 4 rbi night including another bomb. Major League leading 95 rbi’s. Must be the luckiest guy in baseball.

    Roy Oswalt looks like he has his fastball working for him again and has returned to form since coming off the DL.

    The Nats didn’t do John Lannan any favors in the field last night. That defense was atrocious.

      Phillies game toady has been postponed, to be made up on 9/20 as a double header. As much as I would have liked to watch the game today, not all bad news. Hamels gets an extra day of rest and Halladay gets 2 extra days.

        This sucks. I was looking forward to the Harry Kalas statue presentation and watching Doc pitch today. Oh, well. I guess I’ll just sit home today and enjoy my 30 pack of beer and listen to some Doors. Perhaps “Riders on the Storm” as the rain and thunder fall.

        There was a report this morning that even after the Phillies postponed the game due to rain, Halladay went out in the pouring rain and was throwing anyway. Nothing throws this guy off!! Doc is an animal! This is why the guy is who he is and is that great.

    Cardinals ace Bob Gibson no-hit the Pirates (1971)

    I remember sitting in my room in Lawrence, Kansas, listening to Harry Caray and Jack Buck call this game. Thanks for bringing that snippet of history back to me.

    The Lords of Maple Earth had their way with the Angels of Anaheim yesterday. Weaver looked utterly ordinary and was tattooed for home runs, something unheard of prior to August 2. He was just off his suspension for that ruckus with Detroit. Somewhere Alex Avila was grinning.

    Adam Lind had himself a grand salami in game where The Most Interesting Hitter in the World had a day off since Weaver ordinarily just owns him. Even without Bautista, the Jays were determined to make day 2 of the Return of Wells a more Beaver-Wrestler dominant affair.

    The Angels managed only a solo home run against Ricky Romero who showed Weaver how you pitch to major league hitting. R2 was great. Edwin Encarnacion continues to swing the big stick, too and he showed some leather over at 1st. That guy is making a case for the long term contract as the DH/utility infielder.

    Cur, What is your take on Colby Rasmus thus far? I know he had a couple of good games but that was against the Orioles pitching.

  6. proudlycanadian - Aug 14, 2011 at 4:57 PM

    Rasmus has played well in the outfield. He started 0 for 13, then got hot, then cooled off. Today, he hit a double in the bottom of the 9th against Walden and scored the tying run on a double by Lawrie. The Jays won the game in the 10th. It looks as if Rasmus and Lawrie are going to provide an effective left/right combination in the lineup for years to come.
