That's a good lookin' circle change there, Johnny!
- I know it's a bit late, but I just couldn't let this one go. John Danks should have been on the All-Star team. It's the biggest snub that no one's talking about. Here are the #'s:
19 Starts/7-4 record/114.2 IP/94Ks/31 BB/8 HR/2.67 ERA/1.15 WHIP/.234 BAA/7.4 K/9
- Not to mention that in his 8 no decisions he's given up 3 runs or less and pitched at least 5.2 innings in 7 of them. This guy could LEGITIMATELY be 14-4 if his team scored any runs for him. And, if you take out his 1 bad start this season, he hasn't given up more than 4 runs in ANY of his other 18. He's been one of the most consistant starters in the AL this year and no one cares. CRIME.
- Jones Zone: Currently batting .376 through 83 games. He's 4 for his last 20, a stretch that saw his average drop from .388. Loser.
- Howard Watch: 129 K's through 96 games. On pace for 218K's. Number of games this season in which he has NOT struck out: 15. He's got the average up to .234, so I guess he's got that going for him.
