I meant to post this on Sunday, but I drink a lot lot and forgot. This stat has no bearing on anything, but it does show total domination.

Mike Cameron...in his last four at bats against Cubs hurler Rich Hill...is 4 for 4...with you guessed it...four homeruns. Anyone have any idea what the record is for consecutive homeruns against a pitcher by any player...be it DH or a position?

Eventhough I like Pujols I would love to see Fielder be the starter.

What's really something is that 2 of the top 5 vote getters at first base in the AL are guys who don't even own a glove.

Hanley Ramirez not being in the top 5 in NL shortstop voting is a head scratcher.

I noticed Ramirez was left off too but I figured the other SS were known names and is probably the reason why.

I read earlier in the week Ortiz asked MLB to take his name off the voting sheet where the players vote for other players and to replace it with Youkilis instead since he doesn't really play 1b and wants to get his teammate some votes too.

With rumors heating up here are some from http://www.benmaller.com/mlb_rumors_notes#145642

Quote:
The Yankees are expected to troll for a first baseman during the next six weeks. Todd Helton's remaining salary could drop him on their wish list, but he's enjoying a strong rebound season, batting .322 with six home runs and 37 RBIs. A week ago, he talked about the near-trade to Boston. He figures to get a few questions this week about a hypothetical transaction. It has been reported Helton would not approve a deal to the Yankees if it came up. "I have never said publicly that I wouldn't go to any team," Helton said. So what about the Yankees? "They'd have to want me first," he said.

The Angels have spoken to Cincinnati about Adam Dunn and to Baltimore about Miguel Tejada. If Texas fields offers for Mark Teixeira, the Angels would probably pursue the slugger, but the price would be steep.

With the White Sox struggling, trade rumors are floating around baseball, many of them involving free-agents-to-be Mark Buehrle and Jermaine Dye. So does Buehrle, the longest-tenured Sox pitcher who has the staff's lowest earned-run average and a no-hitter already this season, see himself gone? "Yes and no," he said. "I can see why I would be, the way we are playing and the baseball side of it. But then again, I want to spend my whole career here and hopefully I won't [get traded]." The latest rumor has Dye and Buehrle going to the Mets for prospects, which doesn't seem likely at this time. "It's exactly what it is," Buehrle said. "It's rumors."

The New York Yankees have expressed interest in Angels first baseman-DH Shea Hillenbrand, but with Anderson on the DL and first baseman Casey Kotchman expected to sit out several more games because of a concussion, trade talks have been put on hold

I love this quote from Todd Jones on the heels of his 3 run, 5 hit inning of work last night that saw a comfy 9-5 lead turn into a 9-8 nailbiter against the Nats.

Quote:
"My job is to get outs, and I got them," said Jones, who has 17 saves in 21 opportunities but a 5.86 ERA. "You guys can laugh and make fun of the ERA all you want. But when that rubber hits the road, it goes through me and that's the way I want it."
Wow.

Josh Fogg pitched a gem tonight. In typical Fuentes fashion, he tried to make it exciting in the 9th

Yup, glad we held onto Penny with Schmidt out for who knows how long. Along with Peavy, this guy shoved it up our ass nearly every time he went out there against us. I was so excited to see him doing that for us this year.

Great win for the Rockies and an outstanding performance from Fogg. Two excellent games in a row he has had.

Really wish Fuentes could get a 1-2-3 save more often. He needs to be more dominant.

Hopefully they can at least split the next two games and win their sixth series in a row.

Listening to ESPN Radio tonight (Mike and Murray, or something like that?), and they're talking about the possibility of the Yankees catching the Red Sox. One of them is going into this long (and I mean LONG) diatribe about how the Yankees are "let's face it, playing the next six against two of the weakest teams in the league in Colorado and San Francisco."

Seriously, how do you get a job doing sports talk radio? Do these guys watch sports, or is that not a part of their jobs? The Rockies have gone 17-7 in their last 24 - including some quality wins against the best MLB has to offer. They are not an elite team, but neither are the Yankees right now.

And then on the Yankees official messageboard, there were a bunch of posts today about how the Yankees should easily be able to sweep the Rockies.

I have never wanted Rockies wins as much as I want them these three nights.

Jason might miss the rest of the season. Penny was outstanding tonight, when the pitching staff gets run support thay pitch very well.
