    Indians 4, Devil Rays 3.The headline reads “Jackson strong in loss”. What? When a starting pitcher walks 5 batters, that is not a strong performance. Yes, we know that 2 of those walks were intentional, but 3 walks in 6 innings is still not “strong”. When a pitcher has to […]

    We predicted a few days ago that Brendan Harris would start digging into Ben Zobrist’s playing time. That is starting to look like a reality. The question is whether the Brendan Harris we are seeing is the real Brendan Harris, or if we will soon see the player that was […]

    Orioles 6, Devil Rays 4. He is only 23…he is only 23…he is only 23…102 pitches in 4 innings. 6 hits, 4 walks. Scott Kazmir actually threw 60 strikes, which is not terrible, so it is not just his lack of control. He just throws too many pitches. Some how […]

    Columbus 5, Durham 2. We admit we took a double-take when we saw the Bulls were playing Columbus. We momentarily forgot about the Columbus Clippers the former AAA affiliate of the Yankees. They are now the AAA affiliate of the Washington Nationals and not the low-A affiliate of the Devil […]
