Re: MLB Tax Day, April 18, 2011

I keep staring at the standings thinking what it would be like to see St. Louis leading the division with a 12-4 record (their record had anyone other than Ryan Franklin been closing).

Of course that assumes that any random reliever would have been perfect in such situations. By far not a given.

Can't disagree with what you're saying, but it's not far from being a fair assumption. There's 18 other closers that haven't blown a save this year. Even your worst guys in that spot would convert 3 of 4 opportunties. And that's not counting that his blown saves have come against 3 below average offensive clubs.

Re: MLB Tax Day, April 18, 2011

So I can't complain about the Yankees on tax day. They're winning series and that's all you can ask for. They're coming in exactly as advertised... weak rotation, strong bullpen and a thumping offense. Burnett has been a nice surprise so far... as has Joba. Too early to tell about Garcia but his first start was great. Hughes has been a disappointment but I have faith that he'll come back from the DL and put together a decent season. Too bad about CC... 3 good starts and one just ok start and he's 0-1.

Soriano has been good... his numbers just don't show it. Girardi needs to learn how often he can use him... he doesn't seem like the kind of reliever that can come out and pitch every day. He needs to work Robertson into the fold a little more. Give Soriano an off day here and there... move Joba up to pitch the 8th and Robertson to the 7th on those days.

Franklin can suck it! If we lose the division by one or two games I will never forgive this guy.

Re: MLB Tax Day, April 18, 2011

In the WTF department, the ESPN scroll is reporting Reds SP Mike Leake was arrested for shoplifting $59 worth of merchandise from Macy's. I hope he doesn't get suspended as I have him on my roster.

The guy makes 6 figures and he gets arrested for stealing six American Rag shirts. Anybody wear this stuff? I have no idea what the designs are. More info on the shoplifting charge:

CINCINNATI (AP) Reds pitcher Mike Leake was arrested on a shoplifting charge at a downtown department store Monday, accused of trying to steal six shirts valued at $59.88.

The 23-year-old starter was booked at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a first-degree misdemeanor charge of shoplifting. It carries a maximum of 180 days in jail.

He was arrested about two hours before Reds pitchers were expected at Great American Ball Park to take batting practice before the final game of a series against Pittsburgh. Leake started and got the victory in an 11-2 win over the Pirates on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds were trying to get details of the arrest and had no immediate comment.

Police arrest reports said Leake removed the price tags from six American Rag shirts at a Macy's store and tried to leave without paying for them. Leake makes $425,000 in his second season in the majors.

Leake was the eighth overall pick in the June 2009 draft and made the jump directly from Arizona State to the majors last spring, when he won the fifth starter's spot in the rotation. He was the 21st player who went right from the draft to the majors since 1965.

The right-hander helped the Reds get started toward their NL Central title, going 8-4 with a 4.23 ERA in 22 starts and two relief appearances. The Reds shut him down at 138 1-3 innings, not wanting to hurt his arm by pushing him too far as a rookie.

The Reds have been relying on Leake again this season while they get through shoulder injuries to starters Johnny Cueto and Homer Bailey, who are on rehab stints in the minors and could return by the end of the month. Leake has made three starts, going 2-0 with a 5.40 ERA.

That makes me sad about Leake. An ASU guy. Hope it was just a misunderstanding.

Dbacks can't lose today!

Yeah removing the tags and trying to leave the store without paying for them sounds like a misunderstanding.

Lincecum has a no hitter through 6.

Chapman threw a pitch 106 mph, breaking the record.

I was thinking whether I should turn on the TV when I got home, since I was listening to the whole game on the car radio. Well you guessed it.... the first pitch I saw when I turned on the TV was the one that broke up the no-hitter.

That's the 2nd time it happened to me.

well, I guess I should be glad that Giants won (even without the no-hitter). I thought the Rockies were gonna destroy them today.
