    Baseball Told the Right Way
    In-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!

      We're back.
    All DL Team
    Kerry Wood went on the DL today, as John pretty much expected. The thing is, he is joining some pretty good players. In fact, I bet I could make the playoffs with only players currently on the DL (provided they were healthy, of course). Take a look at this roster.
    C   Joe Mauer          SP  Mark Prior          RP  Rob Nen
    1B Richie Sexson SP Kerry Wood RP Brendan Donnelly
    2B Marcus Giles SP AJ Burnett RP Rafael Soriano
    3B Troy Glaus SP Tony Armas Jr. RP Steve Karsay
    SS Nomar Garciaparra SP Runelvys Hernandez RP Mike Remlinger
    LF Barry Bonds
    CF Preston Wilson
    RF Sammy Sosa
    There's a lot of guys still out there for a bench, but I'll take Placido Polanco for my utility guy, Jose Reyes to pinch run, and Trot Nixon, Larry Walker, and Garrett Anderson to pinch hit. On second thought, I need a righty to pinch hit, I'll take Dmitri Young over Nixon. They're a little weak at the back-end of the rotation, but who wants to make out that lineup card and tell Preston Wilson he's hitting 8th.

    The Little Things Count Too
    Tonight the Tigers were down a run to the A's, and Tim Hudson was up to 99 pitches through 7. You would think the Tigers might work the count, take a couple pitches, try to get Hudson out of the game and get into the meaty bullpen of Oakland. Nope, instead 10 pitches later they're retired in order. You'd think Alan Trammell and Kirk Gibson, both of the .352 career OBPs, would have taught the kids to work the count a little.

    Maddux passes some guy named Denton
    Greg Maddux, one of my favorite pitchers of all time, passed Cy Young on the All-time strikeout list today. He now stands at 15th all-time with 2807 strikeouts. If he stays healthy this year he could jump up to 13th. If he stays healthy over the length of his contract, he's got a chance to finish his career with about 3200 strikouts, the 11th most strikeouts ever. What does this mean? Not much, the guys a hall-of-famer, if you didn’t know that you probablly wouldn’t be reading this.

    Go Lightning!
    How bad are the Devil Rays? Well, despite embarrasing the Red Sox tonight there are many reasons. One reason that amuses me: as a team they have more stolen bases (36) than home runs (30). As a team they are "hitting" a combined .242/.304/.368. Melvin Mora's batting average is higher than the Devil Rays team slugging percentage. Wow. Its probablly partly a result of their their DHs hitting a combined .153. Uh, guys, NL pitchers are hitting .152, maybe you ought to just forget about this whole DH experiment.

    Incidentally, in their game tonight, the DRays started the league leader in walks, Victor Zambrano against a lineup that featured Mark "Bartleby" Bellhorn and Kevin "The Greek God of Walks" Youkilis. Go figure, they only walked twice in six plate appearances. Zambrano cemented his spot atop the wrong leaderboard with 8 walks and a hit batter. It takes a lot to have a worse game than a guy who walked 8, but not to be outdone, Derek Lowe gave up seven earned in 2+ innings. Ugly, ugly game.

    Oh and did I mention yet that you can stick a fork in Joe Borowski?
