I wonder. If Jose should accelerate his pace and threaten to hit 74, will the court give Barry Bonds a temporary release from his house arrest so that he can be on hand to congratulate Bautista?

If Bautista can beat Maris without cheating, that will be good for the game.

Extreme close-ups of Jonathan Papelbon looking in for the sign is on a pace to become the most over-used camera shot, breaking the record held by replays of Barry Bonds home runs from all 12 camera angles.

His last outing looked like this

7 innings, 5 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk, 7 K's...That usually nets a win
27 consecutive winless starts for Reyes.

Today he loses to the Yankees putting up this line:
3 innings, 5 hits, 2 walks, 0 strike outs, 2 home runs & 5 runs given up.

A few words about the man whose record Reyes could tie in his next start.

Matt Keough rebounded quite well from his winless streak, in 1980 he went 16-13, 2.92 and won the AL Comeback Player of the Year award. Keough was one of the Sports Illustrated cover boys when the A's '81 rotation was being touted as the best in baseball.

In the strike year of '81 he was 10-6, 3.40, but after that his career went to hell on a greased handcart. He was 11-18, 5.72 in '82 and in the 209 innings he pitched for Billy Martin, he struck out just 75 batters while walking 101 of them. The A's got rid of him and he bounced around with four teams for another three seasons without getting any better, and that was it.

At least that was it for his playing career. After it was over Matt confessed to having been a periodic spitballer. He worked as a coach and scout in MLB and is currently employed as an executive with the A's.

Keough, along with his wife, former Playboy playmate Jeana Tomasino, and their three kids, appeared on the reality show "The Real Housewives of Orange County." In the show's third season, the Keough marriage was canceled, they divorced and left the show.

In 2005 Keough rear ended a car stopped at a red light in Orange County. He wandered away from the scene of the accident, and when he was caught, his blood alcohol level was twice the state's legal limit for intoxication. He served three months in jail and then went to the Betty Ford clinic to dry out. It didn't work out so well because in 2007 he was arrested once again when found drunk in violation of his probation agreement. He served 180 days in the clink.

In 2009 he was nabbed for DUI, this time being three times over the legal limit.

So, if history is any guide, then Reyes may look forward to a comeback season next year, followed by a sharp talent decline and a post playing career composed of alcoholism and frequent arrests.

Roy Halladay has 86 strikeouts in 84.7 innings over 11 starts this season.

He's on pace for 258 strikeouts which would smash his previous career high of 219, set last year.

Hallday has 9.18 K/9 this year compared to a career average of 6.8 and career high of 8.2

Frankie Rodriguez finished his 19th game of the season, putting him on pace for 63 games finished.

If K-Rod finishes the season with 55 or more games finished his $17.5 million contract for next year will become guaranteed.

E5, Edwin Encarnacion, has 11 errors thus far on the season while splitting his time between 3B, 1B and even DH.

He'll get released at some point before the reaches the 35 error pace he is currently on.

Frankie didn't help himself tonight.

He entered the game in the top of the 9th with the score tied 3-3. A successful inning combined with a Mets run in the bottom of the inning would have moved him 1/55th of the way closer to $17.5 million next year. Unfortunately, for Frankie, he gave up 5 hits while only retiring 2 Phillies batters forcing the Mets to pull him from the game.

Jo Jo Reyes is scheduled to start Monday night, at home against Cleveland (Carmona). If he throws the first pitch and does not earn a win, he'll set the MLB record for doing that 29 straight starts.

-------------

Jose Bautista hit #20 today, still on a pace for 62, to top the Maris record by one.
