Three pitchers are on a pace to have higher OPS as hitters than they allow as pitchers.

Clayton Kershaw currently has a 627 OPS while holding opposing batters to a 569 OPS.
Chad Billingsley currently has a 855 OPS while holding opposing batters to a 749 OPS.
Carlos Zambrano currently has a 822 OPS while holding opposing batters to a 725 OPS.

Wily has slowed down a little, but another HR tonight puts him on a pace for 44 home runs this year.

Plus he will be the first player ever with 44 homeruns and zero walks.

. . . . with a NL team, without ever putting on a glove.

In the midst of all these novelty accomplishments we have been noting, someone has mounted a serious challenge to a prestige mark. Jose Reyes has collected 13 triples and is on a pace for 27, that would be the second highest total since the start of the 20th Century. If the Mets were an AL team, 27 would be the all time record for that league.

The last time someone was making this kind of triples noise this early was in 2007 when Curtis Granderson had 14 in the first half on his way to 23. In 2000 Christian Guzman had 12 by about mid June. He couldn't sustain the pace and wound up with 20 on the year.

Reyes career best has been the 19 triples with which he led MLB in 2008.

Of Reyes 14 triples, only two have come with one out, the logical time to try to stretch. All the rest came with zero or two out, when you need to be damned sure you'll make it. He has been thrown out only once trying to stretch, and that came with one out.

I'm going to guess that if he ever gets thrown out at third with none out or two out, he won't be hitting very many more triples.

Reyes already has more doubles than Owen Wilson had the year he hit 36 triples, and is on a pace to hit more th an twice as many. If Reyes had tried to stretch a lot more doubles into triples, he'd likely be ahead of Wilson's pace.

Mark Reynolds is on a pace to make 40 errors, which puts him up in Jose Offermann territory, but nowhere near the great Roy Smalley (Sr.). Fans at Wrigley Field paid a premium for seats behind first base, certain that a couple of souvenirs from short would come in there every game.

The left side of the Orioles infield has 21 errors so far this year. One by the shortstop (J J Hardy), and 20 by the third baseman (Reynolds).

Not a good start for Ramon Ortiz (who's not a good pitcher) in his start tonight.

9 batters faced. 4 hits, 1 walk, 2 K's.

Bautista hit his 28th home run.

He's on pace for 52 this year

The Cardinals were 7-8 while Pujols was on the DL, and are now 6-9 in the last 15 games he played.
