What the hell is a Yangervis Solarte? Yankees get some points for strong name tools, I'll give them that.

Can't wait to get home and see Aaron Harang start a major league baseball game in the year 2014 (as a number three starter no less). I have a feeling this is going to be a long season.

Well, the Blue Jays pulled that save out of their ass, didn't they. I was sweating in the 8th and 9th.

Don Baylor broke his leg catching the ceremonial first pitch. That's gotta be a first.

And he takes a scoreless no hitter into the seventh. I'll take it.

I was a little nervous about that too but a Win is a win.

He had two winning seasons for the Mets, the first of which was two wins over being a .500 year.
The only statistic more worthless than pitcher wins is RBI.

Edit: cubs.gif

Yeah, too bad he's never thrown a pitch like that for the Jays ever. And as we've seen, when he can't pitch like that, he is brutal.

His velocity has returned somewhat. He was touching 92 and 93 at times but he was getting a ton of flyball outs.

Well, the Cubs lost in 16 innings, the day after they lost in 10 innings.

Emilio Bonafacio went 9 of 12 in those 2 games, but the rest of the team isn't doing much else so far.

Villanueva took both losses. I thought he was going to start?

This isn't surprising, but it is good to see it backed up by numbers: Statistical bias among Umpires calling balls and strikes

Essentially, the chance of a ball being called a strike when there are three balls or a strike being called a ball when there are two strikes is very high - to the point where the outcome of at least one at-bat per game is affected by it.

Balls and strikes seem to be the last thing that will be affected by instant replay. There's a good argument that it should have been the first thing. Unless we think that baseball is better for this "benefit of the doubt" being incorporated into it (making it more exciting and fluid rather than mechanical).

Anyone who trumpets wrong calls as a necessary and proper part of the sport that nothing should be done to curtail is weird.
