Career outing for Chuck James tonight. He only gave up 3 homers in 4 innings. That's got to be a career best homer/inning ratio.

We are truly in baseball bizarro world.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Kazmir sparkled in his first start since agreeing to a $28.5 million contract extension, and the surprising Tampa Bay Rays dropped the New York Yankees into last place with a 5-2 victory Thursday.

My fantasy team got 31 Ks today, holy crap.

Kazmir + Dempster = Win.

Only time will tell how this will turn out. Today, Edmonds went 1 for 4 stranding 7 runners, grounding into a double play and striking out with the bases loaded.

Edmonds would have had an RBI but bad baserunning by Rameriz cost him it.

So, is it too early to give the Cy Young to Webb? 9-0 and first pitcher to win first 9 starts since 1985.

You might have just jinxed him with the 1985 reference to the Padres' Andy Hawkins, who won his first 10 starts. Then he went 8-8 the rest of the year and didn't even get a Cy Young vote.

Meh. Even if web went 8-8 the rest of the season, he'd still basically be the same pitcher stat-wise as he was last year. He got 2nd, so I'd say that'd still be a good season.
