Puig finishes his second major league game with a double, 2 HRs, 2 runs and 5 RBIs. Not bad for a guy that I was told wasn't a power hitter.

He is incredible. Spring training we said dude was gonna be a stud. Not sure whoever wanted him to start the season in the minor leagues is an idiot or genius. Idiot for not realizing dude would Rake over fences the second he's on the field, genius for realizing starting in the minors have different contract consequences for the dodgers.

From a management point of view him starting in the minors for contract point of view make sense. I don't think anyone saw Kemp struggling so much recovering from his injury and Ethier pretty much not caring anymore (from my point of view). My only hope is Ethier can be moved for someone like Aramis Ramirez to bridge the gap till Corey Seager is ready. They need to move someone to keep Puig up. That is the only way LA can climb back into the NL West race IMO.

Man I remember back when the Dodgers signed Ethier to that extension and thinking how stupid it was, mainly due to slightly overpaying. And now he has bottomed out.

As for Puig, geez lets give the kid some more time to determine the decision. Kevin Maas? Shane Spencer?
NL West has always been weird the last few years. A team suddenly wins out of nowhere. DBacks are winning with basically great bullpen pitching and decent starting rotation. Rockies have a great lineup, but questionable pitching. Giants have a decent offense, great bullpen, but kinda iffy SP at the moment. Dodgers have had injuries and guys not stepping up, and well the Padres are...the Padres.

SEATTLE -- Andy Pettitte allowed three hits over 7 1/3 innings to earn his 250th career victory, leading the Yankees to a 3-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

It was his 213th victory as a Yankee, putting him third on the franchise's career list behind Whitey Ford (236) and Red Ruffing (231).

Pettitte (5-3) had six strikeouts and no walks in his 85-pitch effort. He has 1,940 strikeouts as a Yankee, 16 behind franchise leader Ford.

FROM ELIAS: Prince Fielder (51) and Miguel Cabrera (67) are the 1st pair of teammates to each have at least 50 RBI through 60 team games since Carlos Delgado (58) and Vernon Wells (55) in 2003. The last pair of Tigers teammates to each have at least 50 RBI through 60 team games were Vic Wertz (63) and Hoot Evers (51) in 1950.

I was glad to see the Royals name George Brett as their hitting coach (they've won 4 straight games since then).

I'm a Tigers fan, but George Brett is one of my all time favorite players.

He looks like he is infusing the team with some energy and appears to be having a blast working with the players.

I was 8 years old when he hit .390 in 1980 and remember looking at the box scores every day in the newspaper to see what he did the previous night....of course ESPN was in it's infancy back then (we didn't have cable anyway back then) and it was well before the Internet age and 24/7/365 information overload....so when I was a kid, I relied on the daily box scores, the weekly installment of TWIB, and Tigers games on the radio.

I was watching the highlights from yesterdays games and a few of my pet peeves surfaced.

1- There were two significant extra inning games yesterday. This prompted the espn anchors to use the term, "free baseball". Sorry, but when you buy a ticket to a major league game, you're paying for the right to see the contest arrive at it's eventual outcome. Nothing about 9 innings is specified. Nor do announcers talk about refunds when a game is called after 6 innings.

2- The Cardinals loss yesterday put them at 40-22. People in broadcasting call this 18 games over .500. But .500 for 62 games is 31-31. So, the Cardinals are actually 9 games over .500, not 18.

Its called 18 games over .500 because they would have to lose 18 straight just to be .500.

The Tigers sweep the Indians and have opened up a 5.5 game lead over the Tribe in the division.

Everyone was talking about Brett after the All Star break. I remember exactly being driven somewhere and at the bottom of the street, the Angels' radio announcer said he would have to go 6 for 8 or 8 for 8 on the last day to hit .400. That was such a magical year and only Boggs and Gwynn could even come close to hitting .400 .

I have a pet peeve of people that actually think your statement above is correct in baseball talk. Too literal. I feel that type of talk should be in a myspace blog.

No, 50% of 62 is 31.

Cardinals have scored 7 in the 10th (11-4), capped by a 460 foot Matt Holiday grand slam. They'll be 41-22 after this game.

Cardinals will be 19 games over .500!


Even though that's incorrect, mathematically speaking.
