wow, what a story. Our son was a Pirate (minor league) until he was traded to Kansas City. The Pirates have struggled for so long. I would love to see them come back, just a little.

Yu was unbeatable tonight, but I'm encouraged by Kuroda's performance.

Astros beat the Brewers today, 7-5, with Jose Altuve and J.D. Martinez swinging hot bats this afternoon. Brett Myers did a nice job in the ninth to close that one out. Houston is now back in fifth place.

That's because the Cubs lost to the Cardinals at Wrigley. Lance Lynn is now 4-0.

And his ERA is 1.33. Third best in the starting rotation.

He's pitching pretty well, but the 98% runners stranded rate isn't going to last all season nor is the .182 BABIP.

Can you show me the raw data that led to that 98%? He's given up 16 H and 6 BB, which is 22. Four runs and four DP and one CS leaves 13 runners stranded. Which looks to me more like 61%. Even if you count all runners who did not score as "stranded", it's only 82%. How did you get 98%, and what's the MLB average? Last year for Verlander and Halladay it was 69 and 74. If Lynn's "stranded" rate was the same, his ERA would be 2.00, because his Whip is 0.77, which is respectable by anybody's standards.

You can't take a pitcher with a Whip of 0.77 and cherry-pick one isolated stat to diminish that because of his stranded rate. OK, so with average luck, he'd have a whip of 0.77 and an ERA of 2.00 and a record of 3-1 or 3-0 with a ND, because a couple more of his baserunners would usually score. What's wrong with 0.77 and 2.00 and 3-1?

The Rays picked up Brandon Allen on waivers, a guy with a .205 BA over four years with three teams. His first plate appearance in his new uni, he hit a come-from-behind walk-off homer.

Brandon Allen has insane power ...... a batting practice hero, but definitely did what he was brought in to do

Marlins just finished off what turned out to be a 5 game road trip. SPs had 5 quality starts and went 6.84 innings on average ... combined ERA of 1.82

Despite that the Marlins found a way to go 0-5
