You do understand, don't you, that this is a pitcher's stat, who gets credit for striking our Larry, Moe and Curly and thus leaving the two runners on that he put there.

I do now. So lets pretend my previous post began with "Speaking of left on base in general....."

When Yu Darvish and Kyle Drabek took the mound tonight, they might have set an all time MLB record for lowest sum (15) of the uniform numbers of the two starting pitchers. Darvish (11) and Drabek (4).

Can the 250 Million Dollar Man get through the entire opening month without a home run?

Albert Pujols has doubled, his 8th of the year, in two at bats so far against the Twins. It is only the bottom of the 4th, so he will get two or three more shots at least. The double inflated his slash line to .222 /.271 /.311

He did it, the double was Albert's only hit. His one for four night leaves Pujols at .217 /.265 /.304 for the month of April.

Maybe they aren't paying him enough.

The AL East finishes April at 17 wins over .500 with everyone .500 or better.

Ryan Braun last night----3 homers, a triple, and 6 rbi.

All Brew fans have always know him to be a great player-----he seems to have gotten the onus of the steroid controversy out of his mind.

Since Braun got caught, his name should now be spelled BraWn.

Default Batting busters

In the No Bang For The Buck April Awards, Albert Pujols has been the outstanding player. his .570 OPS ranking him 161st out of 185 players qualified for the batting title. His 250 million dollar contract is heavily loaded to the back end, so he is being bad in 2012 at the relatively bargain rate of 12 million for the season. If you view it by average, he is being bad at the god awful compensation rate of 25 million bucks.

There is no such ambiguity with Alfonso Soriano, for his 18 million dollar salary this year he has so far contributed a .237 /.250 /.263 slash line and his .513 OPS ranks him 173rd out of 185. Alfonso is tied with Albert at zero home runs.

For 7.5 million dollars of the Baltimore Orioles' money, Mark Reynolds has cranked out a .143 /.260 /.206 line and this slugger is also still waiting to launch his first home run of the season.

The Phillies must be wondering what they had in mind when they resigned Jimmie Rollins. For his 11 million dollar salary Philadelphia has received.235 /.283 /.271 production...also zero homers.

8.1 million Cincinnati dollars for the aging Scott Rolen has netted them a .186 /.250 /.329 rate of production.

And Jose Bautista...14 million bucks for .181 /.320 /.313
