I guarantee Markakis will contend for batting titles some day.

Roy Oswalt is so underrated. In five of six seasons in the Majors, he's finished no worse than 4th in Cy Young balloting. Roy's getting outpitched by Dave Bush today, though. Bush is spinning a two hit masterpiece.

Whoever thought we'd see the day that the Rockies would be dead last in baseball in home runs? Yet here we are, about three weeks into the season and the Rox have hit a total of 7 home runs.

Matt Holliday constantly pounding the ball into the ground these days isn't helping.

Jason Hirsh turns in another strong start.

7 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 7 K's

Showed some good composure, too. He gave up a home run to Khalil Greene leading off the 7th inning and then struck out the next three. Good show.

Of course, right after I say something, Matt Holliday is sitting a HR away from the cycle. Figures.

Oswalt is one of my favorite pitchers to watch. I think it was last year against the Madres he was consistently hitting 95 mph plus with his fast ball...then breaking guy's knees with a huge hook in the upper 60's. It simply wasn't fair.

It looks like Hirsh is taking Jennings' spot as the Rockies' resident Madres killer.

I have always liked Oswalt, it amazes me how he doesn't get talked about that much though. I think since he entered the bigs he has the 2nd most wins in baseball, which is amazing because you rarely hear his name being mentioned anytime they talk about big time pitchers.

As well, Hirsh looks like a pitcher who could become a very good one. His changeup is almost Maddux-esque of when he was in his prime. Speaking of Maddux, he should retire. Dude has lost velocity and is losing command of his pitches, hence him getting rocked these last couple of years.

And also, it is great to see Atkins and Holliday crushing the ball again, as well as Helton. Each almost got a dinger today in the game.

Went to the White Sox/Tigers game today.

Marcus Thames went yard with 2 outs in the 9th to tie the game.

Polanco drove home the winning run in the 12th. He is an underrated player in my book and is off to a red hot start.

Fun game to be at and a beautiful day.

Matt Cain got a nice win today... He didn't leave anything to chance. Stayed out all nine to ensure that the bullpen didn't screw it up.

Its funny how this kid should probably be 4-0 right now yet is only 1-1. In 29 innings pitched now in 4 starts, given up only 11 hits, 13 walks, 5 runs while striking out 21. The only bummer is that he gets wild sometimes, but I guess it doesn't matter much when you are unhittable. His BAA is freakin .117! If he starts getting some run support, say hello to a Cy Young.

With the current state of the Yankees starting staff, how long before they make a full court press for Roger Clemens?

I'm so glad that I watched that game tonight. I could watch MLB baseball for 50 years, and I'm probably never going to see 4 home runs in a row again.

Meh, thats the second 4 consecutive HR game that I've seen in two years


But no your right, they are a once in a very long time sort of thing. Interesting fact though, JD Drew now has now hit homers in two separate sets of 4 consecutive HR's.

Andy Pettite is the main allure to NY at this point for Clemens. He could come to Boston and finish where he started and win one here.

I still think he'll pitch for the Astros first, but the fact remains that he could tilt the biggest rivalry in sports one way or the other - and that scares me. And it should scare Yankees fans too, but they're too arrogant to understand it.

The Yankees had a home run train run on them.

Ramirez had firsts.

Drew had sloppy seconds.

Lowell had thorough thirds.

Varitek had filthy fourths.

Watching Pujos spank the Cubs today was better than any 4 hr game I've ever seen. Of course, I must say that the Martin grand slam was not too bad last night. My too favs doing it the right way - Go Dodgers and Redbirds!!! I typically hate both the Sox and the Yanks but it was tooo sweet to see them get the sweep - watching Jeter's face after that 9th inning strike out was just priceless!!! Get the hell out of Boston!!!

Apparently Eric Gagne's latest injury is a pulled muscle in his bulbous ass.

A-Rod with another bomb, putting him just one away from Pujols' record for home runs in April.

Mark Prior will have exploratory surgery on his pitching shoulder tomorrow.

So, running the kid out there for 234 innings, at the age of 22, (and leaving him in until he had nothing left several times) was a bad idea then?

Move over Albert, you've got company. A-Rod hits his 2nd of the night and #14 of the month to tie the Major League record for homers in April.

Simply unbelievable. Is it too early to start talking about A-Rod possibly legitimizing the single season home run record?
