Leading Off:


  • Heading into round 2 of Interleague this season, the D-Backs will play 2 series in AL parks. This could lead to SP Micah Owings occupying the DH spot in some or all of those games. How sweet would that be? An NL pitcher getting into the game in an AL park in the very role that was created to keep them out of the batter's box. I hope it happens, God I hate the AL. Here's Micah's career stat line:

(1 and a half seasons) 107 AB/32 Hits/9 2B/1 3B/5 HR/.299 BA/.339 OBP/.542 SLUG

  • Jones Zone: Currently batting .394 through 67 games. Saw his average plummet after a putrid last 7 games in which he batted .320 in 25 ABs. Good luck ass hole.

  • Howard Watch: 102 K's through 74 games. On pace for 223 K's. Hats off to the Rino for his first Golden Sombrero of the season this past Tuesday. 0 for 4 with 4 K's. Number of games this season in which he has NOT struck out: 10

yes the AL is the root of all evil, there's nothing quite as exciting as watching 3 automatic outs at the bottom of NL lineups. every pitcher in the NL should have a max 3.50 ERA.

I can't tell if you agree or disagree with me. Anyway, your ERA statement is rediculous. When pitchers bunt runners over and then those runners score, those runs are still earned. I can't wait to watch that exciting AL strategy this weekend, I wonder how many pinch runners will be used?!?!
